#68 Silk by Caitlin R. Kiernan

Rating: 8 out of 10 stars
I liked the tone of this book. The style was in the genre of gothic horror, aka Poppy Z. Brite. And the whole theme with spiders and creepy crawlies made my spine tingle and raised the hair on my arms. The author did a good job with the main characters, the descriptions vivid and allowing you to know and understand the characters well. I noticed a symmetry between some of the main characters and their past, particularly with Daria and Spyder. I’m looking forward to reading the followup to this, Murder of Angels.

See the BookCrossing journal page for this book for more reviews and information.
