Publisher Description

Winner of the RUSA Award for Best Horror

When a young woman clears out her deceased grandmother’s home in rural North Carolina, she finds long-hidden secrets about a strange colony of beings in the woods in this chilling novel that reads like The Blair Witch Project meets The Andy Griffith Show.

When Mouse’s dad asks her to clean out her dead grandmother's house, she says yes. After all, how bad could it be?

Answer: pretty bad. Grandma was a hoarder, and her house is stuffed with useless rubbish. That would be horrific enough, but there’s more—Mouse stumbles across her step-grandfather’s journal, which at first seems to be filled with nonsensical rants…until Mouse encounters some of the terrifying things he described for herself.

Alone in the woods with her dog, Mouse finds herself face to face with a series of impossible terrors—because sometimes the things that go bump in the night are real, and they’re looking for you. And if she doesn’t face them head on, she might not survive to tell the tale.

From Hugo Award–winning author Ursula Vernon, writing as T. Kingfisher, The Twisted Ones is a gripping, terrifying tale bound to keep you up all night—from both fear and anticipation of what happens next.

The Twisted Ones

After a bad breakup, cleaning out Mouse’s deceased grandmother’s house doesn’t sound so bad. When she arrives at the house with her coonhound Bongo, more than just unpleasant memories greet her. She quickly discovers her grandmother was a professional hoarder. She also discovers why a nice man like her step grandfather Cotsgrave married the nasty enigma she remembers from her childhood. She doesn’t like what she finds. Luckily, she finds friends next door and at the coffee shop to offer a link to sanity when the world around her stops making sense.

T. Kingfisher weaves an interesting tale. She alternates the ridiculous with the terrifying and may just convince her readers not to hoard or walk off the known path.

Overall pretty entertaining

Plot had its ups and downs but I don’t regret buying it and giving it a read.

A definite page turner

Very enjoyable read. Humor lighten dark moments wonderfully. The lore was doled out in an even hand that made me want to keep reading. The fuzzy memory of the writer added to the authenticity of the story.
