The Legacy of Old Gran Parks is a work of fiction in the thriller, suspense, and horror subgenres. It is intended for the adult reading audience, contains some scenes of peril and graphic violence, and was penned by author Isobel Blackthorn. In this truly chilling story set in the 1980s, we find ourselves in Southern Australia with four fascinating female protagonists. But what does a hunter, a fisherwoman, a young backpacker, and a stranded middle-aged passer-by have in common? They will all fall into the deadly path of a restless spirit seeking to cause havoc at the sinister Old Gran Parks, and not all of them may survive the experience.
I’m a huge fan of horror novels and thriller tales, and this is a novel that walks the fine line between both extremely well. The prose was never gory just for gore’s sake, but there were some very cinematically grisly moments that served to heighten tension, and – like all the best chiller fiction – the most terrifying moments are in anticipation of the reader’s imagination. Author Isobel Blackthorn certainly knows how to build tension through the different viewpoints and experiences of her narrators, and she makes readers truly care for each of these unique women and root for their survival as the plot events take increasingly darker twists and turns. Overall, The Legacy of Old Gran Parks delivers everything it promises, and I would highly recommend it to fellow fans of well-penned, suspenseful horror mystery tales. Let the legend come to life and give you nightmares!
