The Ritual by Adam Nevill (4 stars)

For fans of H.P. Lovecraft I highly recommend this diamond in the rough. It combines all the needed elements to delight your ghoulish desires. It starts a little slow, hits what seems like a point of no return / where is this story going? moment in the middle and finishes strong. The ending is left open to your imagination, which is not my favorite way for books to end, but it worked with the style it was written in.

Four friends from different walks of life meet to take a holiday backpacking in the woods. Two of the four are desperately out of shape. The original hiking plan was made for true outdoorsmen, and when they find they aren’t up to it they take a shortcut. That can’t possibly go wrong! Oh but it can, and how…

Even though I know what happens I would read this book again. I truly enjoyed the authors style of writing and will recommend this book as well as look for more by him.
