“The God in the Hills” by Jon Steffens is an absolute slap in the face…a kick to the groin…a punch right through your chest-into your heart, and I mean all of this in a good way!
I got this short story the other day with no inkling what is was about. No warning, no heads up. So let me give you the favor I never got…this story will wreck you. It is 50 pages of uncensored, no holds barred, gruesome, shocking, and horrific terror that I couldn’t put down.
I say that again, I could not stop reading! I was grabbed from word one all the way to the end. This was entertainment in the most graphic way. I was intrigued because of the gore and evilness of the story, but let;s not take away from Steffen’s abilities as a writer. He is very engaging and pains an amazing tale with his words. I saw exactly what he wanted me to see and it still remains very vivid in my mind’s eye. His characters, plot, descriptions, creatures dialogue and actions were very unique and well crafted. I would love to read more of his work.
This story does deal with some pretty heavy issues (and a bit cavalierly) so that may alienate some readers. But if you want to know just how gruesome and dark things can get, this is the story for you! Get it here.
And Jon, I’m going to read more of your writing immediately!
