Killman Creek is the conclusion to the story of a mom desperate to protect her two children from their murderous father and the internet trolls who want to harm them. Their fake identities have been exposed to their small community of Stillhouse Lake. Now that Melvin Royal is escaped from prison, Gwen must decide just how far she’ll go to protect her kids from their father.
Naturally, if you read Stillhouse Lake you MUST complete the story with Killman Creek.
Rachel Caine provides emotional connections that feel very real to the reader. At one point Gwen is reflecting on her need to be with her children that she carried in her womb and those words transferred me into the bond I feel with my own kids. This carried me into the story and made me feel what Gwen was feeling.
I leave you with this warning, no one is completely safe from harm in Killman Creek. Some authors spare their favorite characters from true harm with a couple close calls and near misses. Caine tells stories that are much riskier. This story will have you clutching the book tightly as you worry about the kids and every other good person. It’s worth it.
