This was my first read from Victor LaValle and I am glad that I finally picked him up. This one was written very well with good characterizations and a fast moving, engaging plot. I don’t particularly care for much of Lovecraft’s work, but there are several authors out there today, LaValle included, that have really taken a hold of his mythos and have breathed some new life into it for me. Well done and recommended if you are an HP fan or not. 4 Stars!
