“Hikers – Part One: Power” by Lauren Algeo was not at all what I expected, and everything I could possibly want from a horror novel. The story is pretty original, but more than that, it’s terrifying fun. From the moment I picked up the book, I found it incredibly hard to put down. The characters are well-developed, the pacing immaculate, and the frights just plain perfect. Algeo created a supernatural hired assassin so believable that it makes me wonder if they are really out there. That’s exactly how I want to walk away from anything horror: wondering if something is waiting around the next corner for me. You can’t go wrong with the first book in what is sure to be an amazing trilogy.
