story of five friends who are driven together for just one summer, and then when High School begins are driven apart again by well, High School That one Summer they had together, they discovered a box and each put a sacrifice in, vowing to never remove them, never visit the box alone, and never come after dark Of course, rules are meant to be broken.This sets off a chain of mysterious events that I guess never really get fully explained I would have liked to knowabout the box,about how the average person reacted to Kitty terrorizing the nighbourhood after getting hit by a car etc etc While I felt like there were moments where things could have been better explained and the story veered off course, it was action filled and very graphic writing.I ve seen a few reviews compare to Stranger things Stephen King, but this story holds its own too Four stars This is a dark and atmospheric supernatural horror thriller set in the 1980s The actual location is left mysteriously unclear although we do know that it is an island It is 1982 and the main character, September Sep Hope and teens Arkle, Mack, Lamb and Hadley have spent the summer together In the forest they find an ancient stone box

Arkle, Mack, Lamb and Hadley have spent the summer together In the forest they find an ancient stone box to which they each consign important sacrifices to cement their recent friendships They promise to agree a number of things, including to never return and remove any contents The disparate friends are no longer together in 1986 but reconnect when it becomes clear one of them has gone behind their backs and broken their pact Despite their efforts to rectify their mistakes, events begin to slide desperately out of their control as horrific repercussions begin to play out This is a tense and menacing story with many of the requisite horror tropes of crows, zombies, wicked dolls, and so muchIt touches on the issues of the nature of friendship amongst the young A creepy and sinister read, ideal for those who enjoy horror Many thanks to Penguin for an ARC I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.One summer 70 s evening, five boys discover a box in the woods To cement their friendship, the friends decide to make sacrifices to the box by giving up something meaningful to place inside, with the threat that if one of them opens the box, terrible things will happen.1982, and the friends have drifted apart Until terrible, wicked things start to happen Someone has broken the pact and opened the box.On reading the blurb for this I received a copy of this

Someone has broken the pact and opened the box.On reading the blurb for this, I immediately drew comparisons with IT, The Goonies and Stand By Me which unfortunately does not help the novel There s nothing new here, except a large portion of animal cruelty I believe the novel is aimed at young adults and children yet I found some of these violent scenes quite graphic in nature, and uncomfortable to read about They didn t seem to fit with the target audience at all.The characters, when comparing to these classic 80 s films and novels, are also rather underdeveloped We never spent enough time with one character with the possible exception of Sep to really understand their nature and get to know them It s also hard to understand how any of these children were even friends There s no emotional connection between them at all except for their link to the box This is proven by the fact that they ve drifted apart by the time 1982 comes around.The plot also suffers, as the author tries to pull the reader in several directions at once, not allowing you to concentrate on one plot development at a time This makes the story convoluted and confusing at times as I was constantly trying to remember what everyone was doing at any given time There was too much going on at once.Disappointing DISCLAIMER The Sacrifice Box probably doesn t even deserve the enjoyment it got from me Objectively

Sacrifice Box probably doesn t even deserve the enjoyment it got from me Objectively , it s not a good book It s pretty bad actually Subjectively, I had a ton of fun and it was just what I needed, right now If you are reading this review, you have caught me in a moment of weakness I ve had a really rough week maybelike weeks , and I was in desperate need of a little guilty pleasure Some people grab a horribly cheesy rom com, some O.D on chocolate and wine, I indulge in some horror More specifically bad horror Youtuber Chris Stuckman check him out if you enjoy film reviews has coined a term that is perfect for those type of horror movies hilariocity Something that is such an atrocity that it becomes hilarious The Sacrifice Box comes dangerously close to that territoryI said it in an update after 100 pages it reads like a B horror movie in bookform The further I got into the book, theI saw the resemblances We will get to those similarities in a second don t worry The book actually starts off with the potential to be a good thriller Read the synopsis and you know what I mean This first segment has some great eighties horror vibes and has the potential to be a pretty decent thriller Then around the same 100 page mark though, the novel completely derails and enters a realm of paranormal absurdity and eighties horror tropes At this point it basically asks you to either get off the train, or just roll with it If you roll with it, you are in for a treat Seriously, if you don t plan on reading this at all, I encourage you to click that spoiler button, just to see how hilarious this gets view spoiler There are zombie reanimated animals and killer toys THERE S A KILLER TEDDYBEAR I m actually laughing my ass off hide spoiler Besides taking that Stephen King approach to trying to make innocent childhood icons creepy, it takes inspiration frompopular horror tropes, which is why I said it reads like a B movie It relies heavily on gore and classic imagery crows, deer, the one mentioned in the spoilerpart for its scares, and therefore it getschuckles and eyerolls out of me than anything else.Even in its style it mirrors its movie counterpart For example, duringtense scenes the novel will sort of jump cut , where it switches p.o.v quickly to obscure what is happening Chapters will end in false jumpscares sometimes, where we are left with a creepy image, only to find out that it was just a friend scaring them.At times I was wondering whether the book was being self aware about it There is a scene where one of the characters tells the groundskeeper you know the dude that happens to be a veteran when it comes to dealing with the entity they are up against, just so he can conveniently give you some sweet, sweet expositional dialogue about it how he s supposed to act, according to that archetype I was really hoping the book would go through with that tongue in cheek approach, as it s really the only way you can go when your plot revolves around view spoiler KILLER FREAKING TEDDYBEARS hide spoiler Unfortunately, it takes itself very seriously and actually tries to claw its way out of guilty pleasure movie territory, by adding deeper layers to the backstories of the characters and their friendship To me, it didn t succeed at that It s all delivered in a way that is too heavy handed and againof the same clich s we have all seen before In all reality, it would have been so easy for me to pick this apart for all its faults clich s galore, gore, pacing issues, writing that is at times pretty clunky As an example of the latter I was at first confused about the gender of certain characters, because of the way the author uses pronouns In some scenes I thought the author referred to Sep as she , while he is supposed to be male Upon rereading a few lines I d realize the author was referring to his mother with she , but the way the sentence is set up is just very awkward This happened multiple times during the story Despite these flaws, I enjoyed myself too much on an eighties horror guilty pleasure level to judge it too harshly Would I recommend this book Probably not If I were to read it again, I d probably be a lot harsher That being said it was the right book at the right time for me at the moment, and sometimes that s all you need for a good time
