Sacrifice by Andrew Boylan (4/5)

Thank you so much to the author for reaching out to me to review his book and providing me with a digital copy of the book!

Blurring fact and fiction, Sacrifice drags readers into a waking nightmare where the evils of the past collide with the secrets of the present.

Struggling filmmaker Benny Hernandez stumbles upon a brutalized body in the mountains. As he photographs the victim, he notices something hauntingly familiar about the wounds.

Growing up in New Mexico, Benny heard stories of a cult that rose from the ashes of the Pueblo Revolt in 1680.

As more tortured bodies appear, Benny discovers a pattern that might mean this centuries-old cult has risen again.

This could be the story of a lifetime…if Benny lives to tell it.

Summary from Goodreads

I love me a slow burn and this is one. One of the funnier opening lines I’ve ever read, too; it was a hook! There were times when I had to stop and try to remember who a particular character was, but OOH BUDDY this filled my need for something creepy, yes sir, right up to the very end. I’m not a fan of romance, but a sub-plot of the book presents a romantic element that didn’t make me nauseous and wasn’t jarring to be included with the likes of the rest of the book.

TRIGGER WARNINGS FOR THIS BOOK:

Car accident, injuries to child, graphic descriptions of injuries and gore, gun violence, murder, graphic descriptions of drug addiction and use.
