Lane Boyce, racked with guilt and sorrow after a scandal causes him to lose his job as a teacher and then his marriage in the scandal’s aftermath, relocates to the remote small town of Edgar in northern Maine. There, Lane attempts to overcome his emotional grief and find a meaning and purpose in his life. What he finds in the middle of a Nor’easter snow storm is neither. Is he part of an extra-terrestrial experiment or is he losing his mind?
Gifune does what Gifune does best. He delivers a tale of madness seen from the inside out. But, which is real and which is imagined? As you try to decipher between the two, Greg sends a creepy shiver down your spine in a disturbing wave of dread and unease. The ending cuts it a bit short for me and that’s the only reason I don’t give Lords of Twilight a full 5 stars. But, it’s been quite a while since I’ve had that gripping knot of fear while reading and it was deliciously intoxicating. I thank you for that, Mr. Gifune.
4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
