Last night I read a book straight through for the first time in years. I can’t find any mention of the book or its author on tumblr, and on places like amazon and goodreads it’s gotten mixed reviews, but wow I dug the hell out of it.
The King’s Evil by Will Heinrich, a look at morality and the meaning of life through the lens of a man who takes in an abused child. I don’t want to explain much more because the experience of reading and not knowing is, I think, essential with this story. I’ll just say that I was horrified and disturbed, which is really unusual for me. This one’s gonna say with me for a long while.
