Long Lankin scared the crap out of me The year I read that book I pushed it on anyone and everyone that I could I d still recommend it than most books especially if you are looking for a Gothic read and I know Gothic books are getting and popular lately it seemsPsychological horror is my favorite favorite thing in movies and in books I find the unknowable terrifying than the knowable That is to say I don t find gory stuff scary at all just gross It s a very rare film or book that can pull off both I should do a post on that at some point At any rate The Mark of Cain is definitely Gothic than horror as I didn t find it nearly as scary as LL I still really liked it though because it brought back my favorite characters and a setting that has remained memorable in my mind for a very long time especially the church I guess the reason I didn t really like it uite as much as because it didn t do as much for me emotionally I definitely enjoyed the flashback scenes the most because it created sympathy for the antagonist and Cain Lankin himself and explained how the curse came to be But I also sort of felt like LL didn t need a seuel even though it was a fun read It s not that I think it tarnished the original book s legacy or anything like that but it was not uite up to that standard either The story arc wasn t as good and neither was the imagery I had a hard time picturing where things were located and that is not an issue I had with the first book Also the fact that the girls had to move back to this estate where something horrible happened to them and their father just kind of shrugged it off and pretty much deserted them there felt sort of unrealistic to me I m find with the absentee parent trope but this went a bit too far for meAll that said I still really enjoyed it and thought parts of it were creepy and I liked the idea of the book and things like the witch bottles and the flashback scenes like I said and I did enjoy the ending So I do recommend it but with reservations You don t HAVE to read it if you don t want to The Forgotten Memoir of John Knox up through the foul black mud for them to find Little Aphra's gifts in the dark craft are clear even as an
