Blood Forge by Kathryn Meyer Griffith tells the tale of an ancient evil that is awakened after slumbering for many centuries. I have been a fan of the horror genre for as long as I can remember and Kathryn Meyer Griffith immediately pulled me into the story with her strong descriptions. Every emotion felt by the characters in Blood Forge practically poured off of each page. The thing that I loved the most about this book is that it has a little something for almost any book lover. There was a high amount of conflict that each character went through individually and the conflict that affected all of the characters' lives as a whole.
An ancient snake-demon lays trapped behind the stone walls of an Incan prison, for centuries demanding blood sacrifices and scheming to escape. Then it discovers a pathway into the world of men, forging itself into a malevolent 357 Colt Python, and making itself capable of incomparable destruction and misery. Through decades it torments, decimates, the unfortunate people whose lives it comes into until a loving married couple, Emily and Sam Walters, have enough love and faith–and the help of a mysterious priest who’s much more than he appears to be–to fight against and destroy it forever…and to send it back to hell where it belongs.
