I come to the same conclusion, Graham Masterton is an amazing writer. Even after reading it for a third time I do not find it boring or repetitive. She does not feel like the FBI are doing enough for her to get her children back and she turns to George Iron Walker who claims he I read this book as a read along with several people and this is now my third time reading it.
She does not feel like the FBI are doing enough for her to get her children back and she turns to George Iron Walker who claims he can summon the Wendigo, a Native American forest spirit, who will find her children and bring that safely back to her, but it will be for a pretty high price. This is a very quick read and a definite page turner even after reading it many times.
I read this in one sitting and still loved it just as much as the first time I read it. I love that it is based on Native American folk lore, the "Wendigo". I find it to be so engaging right from page one and it is very easy to follow. Some parts of the story are very graphic though so if you are faint of heart it might not be something you want to read.
I also have some favorite characters in the book. Both have great characters. Although there is not a lot of background to these characters and not the greatest character developement it is still enough to fall in love with them anyway. The main character Lily, my favorite character, has a lot on her plate to deal with, she goes through so much and never seems to give up. I love the strong, perservering type, not the defeated, whiny ones that you wanna kill yourself.
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves horror, mystery or thriller and wants a quick easy to read book that is hard to put down. It won't disappoint! View all 5 comments.
Can you imagine knowing something is there but you cannot see it? Well that is a creep factor in this good thriller by Graham Masterton. This was a buddy read and it was fun to talk with others about the main character. When Lily, a single Mother's children are kidnapped, she makes some very rash decisions and promises. In turn she is lead into a world that is beyond her understanding and is noway prepared for.

At one point Lily is driven to take drastic measures, which throw her and everyone who tries to help her into an impossible situation with grave, no way out consequences. The backstory of the Wendigo had an interesting twist which added depth to this ancient, mystical creature and the story.
A fast moving thriller that had good cadence until the end which, for me,turned a bit into more of a movie ending, but all in all a good book for October spook reads. Thanks Janie for introducing me to GM, I look forward to reading more of his books. Suzy James was a good voice for Lily. Apr 07, Matt rated it it was amazing. Great, fast-paced and gripping horror story with some fascinating Native American folklore.
Masterton manages to mix the horror and thriller genres effortlessly. It is refreshing to see a Native American legend such as the Wendigo given some mainstream attention and Masterton does not disappoint. I felt a connection to the Native American characters and could empathize with their position. Edgewise is a definite page-turner that provides thrills and some chills.
An entertaining thrill ride. Jul 26, Mary Beth rated it it was amazing. Great scary Halloween buddy read. Loved this book! View 2 comments. Mar 31, Kasia rated it it was amazing. Graham is my favorite writer. He is the one whose books I have discovered in my father's library during my teenage years and whose imaginative writing has started my insatiable taste for horror books.
No one writes like Masterton and his use of folklore and different legends, spirits and creatures mixed with the world of humans always comes out with shockingly dark results that somehow seem possible. Some of my favorite books by the author are the earlier ones, I still have a very distinctive me Graham is my favorite writer. Edgewise is his newest work out in paperback and this time the topic deals with Native American spirits and folklore.
I have previously enjoyed the Manitou books by Graham, especially Manitou 2, which had a banging ending that I still remember so this story line felt familiar and in Graham's hands it melted like putty. This tale begins with a violent intrusion to Lily Blake's house. In the middle of the night the action starts off right away before the reader gets their guard up.
Her children are taken away and Lily is left to die in a horrible way. Unable to locate her kids she waits for weeks for the help from FBI but when all conventional methods of search come up with no results, she turns to a darker side for help. A Shaman by the name of George Iron Walker helps to summon the Wendigo, spirit of hunt that smells like burnt electricity and appears to be a hologram of a deer man, standing on two feet, limbs twisting backwards, antlers with sharp points and black eyes, oh yeah did I mention that he's a cannibal, that's right, he kills by eating his pray.
He sniffs for tracks of her missing children and disappears to take his revenge on the person who took them. When things go awry Lily realizes she took on more than she could handle and the horrific invisible to some demon is out on a hunt for her and her family. The bodies pile up; people aren't as safe as they appear.
On top of that certain characters tracks though the line of morals and trustworthiness making the reader ponder the actions that are turning out in front of their eyes more.
It all happens in whirring snow storms, dark woods with grey wolves and quiet night houses that squeak when the hunter is in them. Graham was breathed great atmosphere to his novel; the visuals are very strong and stimulating. The deaths were also pretty graphic, nothing I couldn't handle but my eyes would open rally wide on some sentences, I simply had to read them out loud to my boyfriend who was near by and watched for his grossed out reactions. The ending as usual was great; he never fails to connect all the plots into one tight braid that sometimes leaves something to the imagination after the last page is read.
Edgewise was fast paced and easy to read, something that can be devoured in two sittings and thought of pleasantly after. I really enjoyed finding out what the title really meant as that is thoroughly intermixed with the story. Now more Masterton please View 1 comment.
