REVIEW: Black River Lantern by Alex Grass

This is the third Alex Grass book that I have had the pleasure of reviewing. Like the other two, it is odd, creepy, and dark. The story follows a carnival (not a circus) and how the father exploits his son’s talents for monetary gain.

The story arc was compelling, and I had to keep reading to put all the pieces together. There are so many interesting characters and lots of character development. The imagery puts you front and center of each act.

Each character’s vocabulary varies and is written so I can hear their voices. However, just like Alex Grass’s other books, it is written with adults in mind and a high reading level.

I thoroughly enjoy this book.
