From Goodreads: Twitch, a stubbed limbed, white eye deformed carnival freak attraction is often abused. But, he harbors a dark secret…and his retribution is certainly far worse.
If you’re looking for a quick read with some chilling horror mixed in this Halloween, then this is the novella for you! Scopel has written a very intriguing tale involving the carnival freak, Twitch, and the horrors that befall those who abuse him. This story is not what I was expecting, and I have to say that I am very impressed with the story and Scopel’s writing as well.
This novella begins much like any other, but the creep factor quickly comes into play as characters are introduced and the story slowly begins to unfold. Some of the horror within the novel is quite gruesome, with blood spurting everywhere, burning blisters popping open, etc., but it adds nicely to this horrific tale of retribution as Twitch pays back all those who have ever muttered a degrading word his way. I think my favorite part about it all is the fact that Scopel decided to add some history and witchcraft to the mix, creating an ingenious background story for Twitch and his existence.
Scopel is a very talented writer, keeping the reader focused and engaged throughout the entire story. And, the best part is, he’s strictly writes horror. So, hop on over to Amazon or Barnes and Nobel and pick up this quick read… and if you like it, check out his other work because, hey, it’s Halloween, and we all need to be a little creeped out this hallows eve. Four stars.
I received a copy of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review.
