Ultimate Sacrifice by S.E. Green Review

Ultimate Sacrifice
S.E. Green
Publication date: October 3rd 2017
Genres: Horror, Young Adult
Vickie has always lived a quiet, ordinary life in an equally quiet and ordinary small town. Yet one fateful night a child turns up dead in the woods behind her house in a ritualistic slaughter. Vickie and her family are suddenly thrown into a national spotlight. But as the investigation unfolds, she begins to realize her family isn’t so ordinary after all. Evil is inching closer to those she holds dear and Vickie isn’t sure who she can ultimately trust.

My Review
The last time a horror novel made me cry was Stephen King's novel Pet Semetary. Ultimate Sacrifice had me tearing up more than once over the loss of the child. She's not "just" a child. This is a small community and the child is close to the characters involved. Our main character Vickie is determined to uncover who the murderer is and along the way discovers many family secrets. I would say this novel invoked emotions more than tears and it will take a few days after reading for these feelings to fade. 

About the Author
S. E. Green (aka Shannon Greenland) is the award winning author of the thriller, KILLER INSTINCT, the spy series, THE SPECIALISTS, and the romances, THE SUMMER MY LIFE BEGAN and SHADOW OF A GIRL. She lives off the coast of Florida with her very grouchy dog. ULTIMATE SACRIFICE is her debut YA horror, due out October 2017.
