The Twins by Mike Minicky was an absolute blast with enough tension in each page to really make the whole setting and feel really immersive. The horror element was felt throughout and it combined into a really well told story. The Twins presence was really unnerving and you could almost feel the characters tense up when they were around, even if they weren't sure why. I loved the use of dialogue between them which was short and cold and bounced off each other well. I felt for the elderly grandparents being put in the situation and losing their daughter, but they did so much right for the twins that it was hard to see them suffer both the guilt and misunderstanding. I enjoyed the interactions with John and Clare and the use of John's traumatic past to drive a lot of the drama in the plot, particularly in the late stages. The ending was satisfying and left me cold. I would like to hear more about the dolls in particular, such as how they came about and what makes them the way they are. I hope this is possible in further books.
