Breathtaking and haunting, Rin Chupeco’s second novel is a chilling companion to her debut, The Girl from the Well.
The darkness will find you.
Seventeen-year-old Tark knows what it is to be powerless. But Okiku changed that. A restless spirit who ended life as a victim and started death as an avenger, she’s groomed Tark to destroy the wicked. But when darkness pulls them deep into Aokigahara, known as Japan’s suicide forest, Okiku’s justice becomes blurred, and Tark is the one who will pay the price…
I read The Girl from the Well last year and I also reread it this year. I enjoyed it so much both times and I couldn’t wait to read The Suffering. I really had no doubt that I would love this book as much as the first and I wasn’t let down at all.
The Suffering is everything you would expect if you’ve read the first book. It’s just as weird, creepy, and amazingly written as the first book.
The characters were all really well written. I think that’s what impressed me the most, how well written the characters were.
I loved the culture in this book! I learned so many cool things about Japan and the diversity of this book really stands out.
Overall, I highly recommend this series. If you like YA horror or if you’re interesting in the genre, this is definitely a book to picked up. Rin Chupeco is such an awesome writer and I’ll buy any and all of her future books.
