sister Mimi only trouble is since Mimi was taken by Lankin she returned a changed child able to see things normal people cannot Including the current terror haunting them in their new home Because we re told this story rom the POV of Cora there s a bit of a disconnect of knowledge that keeps the reader in the dark since Mimi refuses to discuss anything with Cora What I m assuming was intended was to add even mystery to this story but it only caused the story to alter leaving it eeling all very subdued as if Cora wasn t actually experiencing it all Chinese Whispers firsthand Regardless of theact that Mimi is only eight years old having the story told Wheres Mummy Mouse? from her point of view would have been a vast improvementI ve come a long way in the horror genre since I read Long Lankin back in 2012 In that review I even admit to being a big weenie which I definitely wouldn t describe myself in terms of horror stories any Back then it took some serious encouragement to read horror and now I d consider it one of myavorite genres Long Lankin was a most unsettling read yet The Mark of Cain just didn t manage to leave me with the same impression I think it would be appropriate to actually describe this as Gothic vs horror Get Over Your Damn Self for curious readers This may not have completely workedor me but this is a Gothic thriller that will no doubt please many I received this book Alpha Dog (Weredog Chronicles) forree Mr. Funny from Netgalley in exchangeor an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Uff I had a break rom reading this as I went away on holiday I was kind of struggling with it before then and on I was kind of struggling with it before then and on return just couldn t bring myself to pick it up again I m honestly not sure why it s just not grabbing me at all I m half way through and have just stopped caring It s not even that it s bad writing or anything like that and the early portion of the book did have me intrigued I guess this one just isn t Saying Yes to the Millionaire for me Oooooh I think I might actually haveound this scarier than Long Lankin I definitely enjoyed it Okay there were a ew things that bothered me like the superfluous description "and the kids conveniently overhearing people talking about Crucial Plot Points but I enjoyed seeing "the kids conveniently overhearing people talking about Crucial Plot Points but I enjoyed seeing and Roger as older teenagers along with their burgeoning eelings Sons of the Devil, Vol. 2 for one another Which I m really glad wasn t overdone because this book didn t need an awkward teen romance Roger was as awesome as ever AS IF THIS NEEDS SAYING There s a line where Cora asks him to do something and he thinks to himself What s a chap to do because he can t say no to her It made me laugh out loud and then want to hug him I think he s adorable The jolly hockeysticks dialogue might not be to everyone s taste but I love how authentically 1960s this bookeels the village s disapproval of Mr Drumm s mistresses was kind of hilarious Oh and I also liked seeing Mimi as a person in her own right although it was Merry Christmas, Daddy frustrating when she wouldn t talk to Cora I wanted to see a lot of Mimi But I loved the glimpses we got of her her secrets and her strength I was trying to pin down why exactly Iound this book scarier and I ve come up with three reasons1 The setting Winter with rising icy Roped in flood waters and the roads blocked by snoweels claustrophobic than the sweltering summer heat in Long Lankin keeping Cora and Mimi trapped inside the house where the danger is2 The different threat Not knowing the witch bottles and marks were to protect the house and not being able to keep Aphra rom getting inside using physical barriers like they could with Long Lankin3 The lack of a proper guardian or adult to protect the child.
