A.R. Kingston takes us to an isolated island called Autumn Falls, an island shrouded in fog and home to secrets that should never be unearthed. Our protagonist is Charlotte Briggs, a paramedic. On the run with her son and escaping an abusive relationship, she skips from one motel to the next, living one day at a time. Then she gets a call: a job offer in Autumn Falls. It seemed like a nice place for her and her son to start again, but reality soon hits home. Crows start to follow her and there is definitely something in the shadows. She can cope with that, but then people start to have accidents. Bad accidents that feed the island with blood. Victims that don’t stay dead, threatening Charlotte and her son or warning her off. When she decides to dig into the past, she finds more than she bargained for. Not only does she uncover a 25-year-old deal whose marker is now being called in, but she also discovers a link between her and the island. Solving that link and the island’s gruesome past may be the only way she can stay alive.
Autumn Falls by A.R. Kingston is a horror story filled with bloodlust and mystery. It isn’t particularly a new style for this genre, but it was a well-written story that flowed nicely with decent dialog. The characters were easy to like, well-rounded individuals that you get to know throughout the story and there is enough action to keep you interested through every chapter. It has some twists and turns in it, and the descriptive writing will draw you into the story, transporting you to Autumn Falls and living through every heart-pounding moment. If horror stories are your thing, this is a decent story to keep you busy for a few hours.
