Review: Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake #2) by Rachel Caine

Blurb from Goodreads:
Every time Gwen closed her eyes, she saw him in her nightmares. Now her eyes are open, and he’s not going away.

Gwen Proctor won the battle to save her kids from her ex-husband, serial killer Melvin Royal, and his league of psychotic accomplices. But the war isn’t over. Not since Melvin broke out of prison. Not since she received a chilling text…

You’re not safe anywhere now.

Her refuge at Stillhouse Lake has become a trap. Gwen leaves her children in the protective custody of a fortified, well-armed neighbor. Now, with the help of Sam Cade, brother of one of Melvin’s victims, Gwen is going hunting. She’s learned how from one of the sickest killers alive.

But what she’s up against is beyond anything she feared—a sophisticated and savage mind game calculated to destroy her. As trust beyond her small circle of friends begins to vanish, Gwen has only fury and vengeance to believe in as she closes in on her prey. And sure as the night, one of them will die.
My Review:
Although I could not put down the first book in this series and it was a five star read for me, I have to tell you that this second book was still really good and hard to put down. Rachel Caine is such a brilliant writer and I love love loved reading her foray into this genre.  She brings her carefully researched and planned plots along with awesome character development into the mix with heart-pounding action.  I read these first two books back to back, which was so great, and probably my most fun reading of this year!  Someone please make these books into a movie or TV show!!!!

Killman Creek comes out next week on December 12, 2017. The first book in this series, Stillhouse Lake, was absolutely incredible and I can't wait for book three, Wolfhunter River, which is scheduled to be released next year on October 2, 2018.
Stay alive.
I can't depend on Sam now. I can't depend on anyone but myself. All my life has been coming to this.
I'm not ready.
But I begin.


  1. I really liked this as well, it was a great follow up and I can't wait for book three!

  2. I have the first one sitting on my Kindle and now I need to make sure I get to it knowing this one is great too!

  3. Oh man i remember reading a few of her vampires books years ago, I dont remember much but I liked them back then. Ive seen this one on my feed quite a bit. Also hi! *waves*

  4. I am loving this series on audio and devoured this. I am so curious as to what will happen in the third novel.
