In Lillie’s compelling debut, a supernatural monster comes in the small, imaginary town of Port Massasauga and sets his eyes on Abby, a teenager with psychic talents similar to his own. Carole already has her hands enough parenting an autistic 17-year-old and coping with a judgmental mother-in-law; life becomes even more difficult when awful murders begin to coincide with her daughter Abby’s more odd behavior. Abby is the only one who can see and so stop the Ceiling Man, a body-snatching predator that feeds on human flesh.
The Ceiling Man by Patricia Lillie
Lillie avoids horror clichés by presenting characters who don’t make mindless choices. Shifting views keep the intensity high, although also makes the ending a little unclear. It might be tough to keep track of the action due to the fast transitions between characters. Regardless, horror aficionados can expect an enjoyable novel that is difficult to put down and evocative of classic slasher films.
Heartbroken by Lisa Unger is also very interesting to read.
