Book Review: The Twilight Pariah

The Twilight Pariah by Jeffrey Ford
This novella starts out well as 3 friends conduct an illegal archaeological dig. They make a disturbing find; cue a ferocious reaction and speculative assertions. This starts out well but sadly soon makes itself irrelevant. This is all cliché and contrivance. No one interacts caringly and this does not amplify the pathos.

Best Lines:
“If I was in a horror movie, I wouldn’t do this,”

“Threw the demon kid in the toilet.”
