Quick Take

Hell Spring by Isaac Thorne is one of those rare horror novels that takes off from the second page and doesn’t relent for the entirety of the novel. It is graphic, grotesque, and eerie in all of the best ways. Thorne’s novel deserves all of the five stars I gave it, and I highly recommend it for fans seeking a more extreme horror novel.

Hell Spring follows eight people who are forced to take shelter in a general store during a flash flood. The story has elements of survivalist horror as the cast of characters are forced to figure out how to survive the flood, while also including supernatural and folk elements because there is one among them who hungers for human flesh.
