This review does not contain spoilers.

"Something Is Killing the Children" delves into the harrowing tale of Archer's Peak, a seemingly idyllic town torn apart by a series of brutal killings. The story kicks off with the arrival of Erica Slaughter, a mysterious and deadly hunter who possesses a keen understanding of the supernatural threats plaguing the town.

As the murders escalate and fear grips the community, Erica embarks on a relentless quest to uncover the truth behind the sinister forces at play. Along the way, she forms an uneasy alliance with the town's troubled youth, including the traumatized survivor James, who becomes her reluctant companion in the fight against evil.

Together, Erica and James confront a host of terrifying creatures, from grotesque monsters to shadowy figures lurking in the darkness. As they delve deeper into the mysteries of Archer's Peak, they uncover dark secrets and hidden agendas that threaten to unravel the fabric of reality itself.

Throughout the story, the tension steadily mounts as Erica and James navigate the treacherous landscape of fear and paranoia that permeates the town. With each new revelation, they find themselves drawn deeper into a web of deceit and betrayal, where nothing is as it seems and danger lurks around every corner.

Against this backdrop of terror and uncertainty, Erica must confront her own inner demons and come to terms with the true nature of her mission. As the stakes grow higher and the danger intensifies, she must make difficult choices that will test her strength, courage, and resolve.

With its gripping storyline, well-developed characters, and atmospheric artwork, "Something Is Killing the Children" delivers. However, the pacing felt just a bit off. I felt like not enough happened in this volume but I will be continuing to the next volume in the series as the story is still very much worth reading.
