The Scare Factor blog reviews Indian Summer

The Scare Factor blog has reviewed Rick Hautala’s Indian Summer.

Loaded with effective scenes and heartfelt moments, not to mention stunning illustrations (including the dust jacket) by renowned artist Glenn Chadbourne, Hautala works his magic again to create one heck of a fine read. He goes deeper than meets the eye and the effort is greatly rewarded. Don’t be surprised if you come of this with a feeling of dread and lost, for that’s how engaging INDIAN SUMMER turns out to be.

Read the whole review on The Scare Factor.

You can also see all of the color illustrations on Glenn Chadbourne’s website.
