Coffin Hill #2 Review

by @mikebiyad on Nov 14, 2013

Halloween’s over, however Coffin Hill still makes sure you have that little dose of creepy horror.

The Good

I really liked this issue a lot. In the first issue we were introduced to Eve, found out her back-story, and saw her leave her police job. In this issue we are starting where we left off. Eve is back in coffin hill, and she is investigating a disappearance of two teenagers, and lovers, who went missing in the Coffin Hill Woods. Eve’s character throughout this book, although it may be a little cliché, is just awesome. She’s a bad ass who just doesn’t give a damn, but she still wants to do right and find out what happened to the missing kids. This book plays out much like an older horror movie with many modern genre tropes, and then adds a few characteristics of noir and detective movies. It’s unique in its own way, and really is overall fun to read.

The Not So Good

For some readers the book may be moving at a bit of a fast pace. Moving from one thing to another happens a little too fast, and some things do seem a bit rushed. At one moment Eve is just coming home to Coffin Hill, and at the next she’s found a clue at the crime scene, and it just seems like there could have been a little bit more in between, however this does not take away from the overall enjoyment of the book.

The Bottom Line

Coffin Hill is definitely turning out to be a great series, and it’s only two books in. I definitely recommend picking up this series now, because it only looks like it’s getting better. I’m giving Coffin Hill a 4/5.

4.0 / 5
