This review is about Kelley Armstrong's "Suffer the Children" only. I picked this up just for her story.
I liked the idea behind the novella (each author had to write a story based on this: "A strange visitor comes to town, offering to raise the townsfolk's dearly departed from the dead- for a price..."). Story is in 3rd person throughout, but there are segments told through Addie, Preacher (Benjamin), and Browning's point-of-view. I enjoyed that because it let me understand things from that particular point of view. I think this is unlike anything she has ever written. Very dark, wonderfully so.
(Maybe not the best thing to read on Christmas morning, but oh well to that!)
