Summary: The prequel to Murder of Angels. At the center of this modern gothic horror story is Spyder Baxter, a deeply troubled young woman haunted by terrifying memories of childhood and her insane, abusive father. But his transgressions were so heinous that the demons aren't just in her head anymore; they've taken on a life of their own and are taking over Spyder's house, crawling out of the basement and into everything and everyone she cares about. Caught in Spyder's web of bad karma are a motley crew of disenfranchised Gen Xers all living on the edge and trying to heal various psychic wounds of their own.

Review: Another horror find in sixth grade, and I've loved Kiernan's work ever since. She's friends with Poppy Z. Brite - no surprises there. I would love to get my hands on the book they did together. I was kind of knocked off my ass by her raw prose. Brite elaborates more, I've noticed, while Kiernan just kind of punches you in the face with her words. It was so refreshing and delightful. It's hard to find her work, so I get what I can. Hopefully I can read more by her soon.
