I am a perimenopausal middle aged woman after all so I felt Mary was like a kindred spirit of sorts. I think it would have been better to break up the book a bit to just give us another POV besides the sheriff at the very beginning of the book. This book has been on my TBR for months—c’mon, once you see this cover, it’s impossible to not be intrigued, right?
Nadine is verbally abusive and mean, but then as soon as Mary is on her own, there's a transformation.I was really happy that Cassidy put a thorough content warning before the story began, because I was able to prepare myself a bit before digging in, but even with the content warning I still had moments where I just had to put the book down for a bit. TWs for quite a number of super disturbing topics you might wanna look into but I have to mention that there’s a pretty graphic animal violence scene.
Mary is about to have her 50th birthday, and she is going through some normal and not-so-normal experiences.After reading the mention of Azazel, I was hoping we’d see some cool theological horror a la Hereditary, but alas, that was just me getting my hopes up. The cover and the description really sucked me in, and will likely do the same to other women of a certain age (yes that is me! Turning internalized patriarchy/misogyny into a literal possession was a brilliant, well-executed spine for the story.
