In Triana we trust. 

Considering Triana is an award-winning splatterpunk author, it's easy to think The Prettiest Girl in the Graveyard will follow in the stomach-churning footsteps of Full Brutal or Gone to See the River Man. And while you'll certainly find visceral scenes of flesh torn apart, the true strength of The Prettiest Girl in the Graveyard is the slow-burn supernatural dread surrounding Triana's skillfully crafted urban legend. 

Prettiest Girl in the Graveyard managed to do what very few horror books have been able to - scare me. Maybe not in the 'turn on all the lights while I run to the bathroom' level of fear, but I challenge anyone not to be pulled back to the days of being a kid dared to enter the abandoned house down the block. That jolt of terror and excitement is exactly what's waiting for you when you crack the spine of this novella. But you get more than chills as you're led through the catacombs. 

True to form, Triana creates an increasingly tense, atmospheric ride that teeters into the deep end in the best way possible. When you think you have it figured out, a new twist knocks you off your feet, and he makes it hard to regain your footing. 

Prettiest Girl in the Graveyard is perfect for fans of 90s horror, where things are a little bit campy, a little bit bloody, and a hell of a lot of fun.
