“The God in the Hills is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for any die-hard feminist horror fans: all of the male characters are despicable misogynists. There is an embarrassment of riches for fans of splattergore, for certain: characters are impaled, spines are broken, and orifices are violated in the most excruciating ways imaginable. (…) Steffens’ imagery is wickedly colorful and effective, so don’t read on an empty stomach unless you’re looking to lose a few pounds.”
– Rebecca Rowland (Rowland Books)
During summer, the little Ozark town of Hotspur, Arkansas becomes a hotbed for tourists looking to trade the stress of city life for outdoor adventure.
