If you’re in the mood for a dark thriller that will resonate within your soul, be sure to check out Jackal by Erin E. Adams. Seriously, words cannot quite describe how hard this novel hits.

Liz Rocher thought she had finally escaped the clutches of her hometown. She thought wrong. Returning home to celebrate her best friend’s marriage, Liz notices things she had been completely unaware of as a child.

Such as the dark coincidence behind all the missing children. Something horribly wrong is happening in this town, and everyone seems to be looking the other way—everyone except for Liz.

Ohhhh. Jackal is one of those books that’ll suck you in and give you the chills! It’s the perfect read for a stormy Friday night (or not, if you’re the type that is prone to nightmares…). This book kept me on the edge of my seat all night and then stuck in my brain for days afterward.

Jackal is a bit of a perfect storm. It combines supernatural horror with thriller vibes but takes several more notches before calling it quits. That leaves plenty of room for tensions to rise. And then there’s the whole mystery of the plot – that kept me guessing until the end.

In truth, I don’t think I could have predicted how Jackal. I was so surprised by every twist and turn, even having read the description and a couple of reviews. So good luck trying to guess it! I would love to see how this experience is for other readers.

Thanks to Bantam and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
