Review of The Mountain City Bronzes by Madeleine McLaughlin

Cover links to Amazon

Description (From Amazon)

When Kevin learns of his mountain town's evil past, he must struggle to understand his father's part in it and how it affects himself.

My Review

I found the description of this book to be very vague but it is hard to describe anymore without giving away too much. That being said, I do think it should be made clear that this is a very short story (it took me about 10 minutes to read) and would perhaps be better as part of a collection of short stories rather than as a book on it's own.

The main character is very well formed and you can really get into his head, but the story is a little predictable. Other reviewers mentioned they found it scary and from that I was expecting a horror story, but I actually find it quite mild.

Overall The Mountain City Bronzes is an enjoyable, if short, read. I give it 4 out of 5.
