The Dwarf Did It...

Blood Will Out


Blood Will Out by Jo Treggiari:

“Ari Sullivan is alive—for now.

She wakes at the bottom of a cistern, confused, injured and alone, with only the shadowy recollection of a low-pitched voice and a gloved hand. No one can hear her screams. And the person who put her there is coming back. The killer is planning a gruesome masterpiece, a fairytale tableau of innocence and blood, meticulously designed.

Until now, Ari was happy to spend her days pining for handsome, recent-arrival Stroud Bellows, fantasizing about their two-point-four-kids-future together. Safe in her small hometown of Dempsey Hollow. But now her community has turned very dangerous—and Ari may not be the only intended victim.”~ Back  cover description taken from Goodreads




I received this book NetGalley a little while back and I was SUPER excited to read it. Based on the description, I was expecting more out of this book than what I got. Total disappointment. It took me 3 weeks to read (not normal for me) and by 80% , according to my Kindle, I was skimming through to see if my suspicions about who the killer was correct. This was a “who done it” type book. It just wasnt thrilling for me. Some of it was just flat-out boring. I felt like most of the book was just animal torture and mutilation. I can deal with people, animals not so much. Now, I know that most serial killers start their endeavors with animal abuse but I feel like it was over kill in this book.

I do want to say that I did like the fact this story was told from the point of view of the victim and the killer. That part I did feel like was well done. I didn’t lose track of the story and it was very clear when you were reading a flash back of the killer’s life.

I only gave this book 2 stars…. Which is why I’ve sort of avoided this review. I hate hating books!! Can’t win them all though. There was just no real horror/thriller/suspense for me….. And I would NEVER have compared it to Silence of the Lambs.

If you liked this book or disliked it just as much as I did please drop a comment. I love discussing books!
