Publication date: Aug 2020
“Fast-paced, relentlessly horrific, and loaded with twists and surprises, Faherty’s dark tour of Innsmouth delivers a gut-wrenching tale of madness, monsters, and heartbreak. Action-packed cosmic horror at its gruesome
best!” —James Chambers, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Engines of Sacrifice and On the Night B order
Henry Gilman has spent years trying to separate himself from his father’s legacy of murder and insanity. Now he has the chance – all he has to do is figure out who’s been killing people in Innsmouth. Then he’ll be a hero and
win the heart of the woman he loves, Flora Marsh. But soon he’s caught in a web of danger, with the undead stalking the streets at night, a terrible monster lurking below the city, and a prophecy of destruction about to come true. In the process, his actions cause unwanted consequences and to save Flora he has to do the very thing he’s spent his life trying to avoid:
follow his father’s footsteps into madness.
Sins of the Father by JG Faherty is an atmospheric story that definitely pays homage to Lovecraft. I absolutely loved the setting. It gives this dark mood that was dark and beautiful and creepy. I just loved it so much.
JG Faherty has a wonderful writing style. He draws the reader into the story and allows you to feel like you’re there, watching the events unfold. That is my favorite type of novel!
I don’t want to spend too long reviewing this. It is absolutely fantastic, and it deserves as many readers as possible. If you’re a fan of horror, creepy atmosphere, and brilliant characters, I think you’ll enjoy Sins of the Father.
