"The things we fear the most are often the things we should fear the least. It's irrational, but it's what makes us human. And if we're able to conquer those fears, then there is nothing we're not capable of." -T.J. Klune, The House in the Cerulean Sea

My personal favorite King novel, Pet Semetary will psychologically grip you and won’t let go until long after the last page. Only King could portray this level of horror with minimal bloodshed and gore, capturing the essence of grief and loss in such a brutal way that will haunt even the most seasoned horror readers. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup
