In the mid-1800’s, a family finds them in the isolated Canadian wilderness having lost their way. Taking refuge in an abandoned cabin and snowed in by a storm, a deep fever takes hold of them…one by one.
The Wrath, a short story by Matt Gordon Perry, was an incredibly quick read not only because of its short nature but also because it was completely consuming. This short story packs a serious punch.
The tone is dark and ominous and it reminded me a little bit of the Evil Dead meets Little House on the Prairie.
Didn’t think you would ever hear a comparison like that huh?
Mind you, there are no demons or zombies in this book, but the general tone was kind of the same. Something is lurking, something is taking hold and a book is calling the shots and warning of danger.
I really enjoyed this one!
