Atmospheric, suspenseful, well-written. But be forewarned: You may not feel entirely whole when you come out the other side.

Brockmeyer's effortlessly stylistic and literary prose completely and utterly mesmerizes you . . . This is a home run and [horror] fans will want to keep Brockmeyer's name on their list of ones to watch.

Like the blood-soaked, LSD-fueled love child of Maurice Sendak and H.P. Lovecraft, Matthew Brockmeyer's Nest of Salt does not shy away from where the wild things are. It's a mad circus, a spiked ambrosia, a frenzied cacophony of heavy metal, demented Christmas carols, and chants to summon cosmic horrors in the dark.

Brockmeyer’s unsettling tale has an effectively slow buildup to an intense boiling point. Thoroughly suspenseful and haunting.

Bloody and emotional and disturbing and beautiful. Five stars.
