REVIEW: The Wise Friend by Ramsey Campbell

I received an advance reading copy of The Wise Friend in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Ramsey Campbell and Flame Tree Press for the opportunity.

This was the perfect example of why I love being a book reviewer. Being sent a novel I knew nothing about and randomly deciding to read it next. I hadn’t read a good horror tale in a while. I thought The Wise Friend was a stunning, dark, descriptive and magical character-focused horror tale. I adored it so much that I devoured it within 2 days. You know when Guillermo del Toro refers to an author as “an absolute master of modern horror” that he’s going to be pretty good.
