Review - The Quarry By DM Gritzmacher

Synopsis -

Hoping to escape the horrors of World War II, Jeanne Butte and her family take refuge in an ancient Roman quarry on the outskirts of their French village. But the little girl soon finds the quarry, like her family, holds deep, dark secrets.

Nearly forty years later lost details from Jeanne’s past begin emerging, and she impulsively returns to the place of her birth looking for answers. As Jeanne digs into the local superstitions, she unearths an ageless terror you can't simply run away from. When Jeanne descends into the depths of the quarry’s black chasm a second time, she finds something had been expecting her all along.

Has Jeanne ever not been, or escaped, the quarry?

Review -

This book ended up being something a whole lot different than what I expected, and I mean that in a good way.

Spread out over three different time periods, The Quarry is a really well executed tale of horror, where humans are the true monsters.

The opening, which is set in France during WWII, is tense and gripping. The middle section of the story takes a hard left turn that is brutal and very hard to read at times, but the author handles the dark content in a way that softens the blow. There are several triggering scenes at play in here, making for an absolute gut punch.

The final part of the story answered some questions, while leaving a few more left open for the next book in the series. I will absolutely be reading that one, while also going back to read the first in the series.
