Four Native Americans kill an elk years in the past and live, and die, to regret it. After all, The Only Good Indians are vegan Indians.
The first part of the book has the pacing and the plot of a thriller. However, the middle slows down substantially to a slow-burn horror tale’s speed. Luckily, the ending once again picks up the pace leading to a slam-bam conclusion.
When I realized what the monster was initially, I thought it was silly. But the author convinced me by the end why it should be feared. I’m sure someone will option this book for a movie and I can’t wait to see it.
The Only Good Indians is defiantly not politically correct. If that bothers you, you should skip this book. I also wouldn’t recommend it to thriller fans due to the pacing issues I described above. However, if you love horror and are bored with the usual zombies, werewolves, and vampires, you must read this surprisingly fresh monster novel. 4 stars!
Thanks to Saga Press, Gallery Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
