Publisher Description

A National Bestseller

The final installment in the most lauded trilogy in the history of horror novels picks up four years after Don’t Fear the Reaper as Jade returns to Proofrock, Idaho, to build a life after the years of sacrifice—only to find the Lake Witch is waiting for her in New York Times bestselling author Stephen Graham Jones’s finale.

It’s been four years in prison since Jade Daniels last saw her hometown of Proofrock, Idaho, the day she took the fall, protecting her friend Letha and her family from incrimination. Since then, her reputation, and the town, have changed dramatically. There’s a lot of unfinished business in Proofrock, from serial killer cultists to the rich trying to buy Western authenticity. But there’s one aspect of Proofrock no one wants to confront…until Jade comes back to town. The curse of the Lake Witch is waiting, and now is the time for the final stand.

New York Times bestselling author Stephen Graham Jones has crafted an epic horror trilogy of generational trauma from the Indigenous to the townies rooted in the mountains of Idaho. It is a story of the American west written in blood.

Loudly Crying Face“SGJ's style of prose may not resonate with everyone. But if you can persevere through the slasher-themed near stream of consciousness (and can stomach the wretchedness of the world that preys on Jade Daniels), you are in for one of the most rewarding journeys in horror literature. Say what you want about SGJ, but an author who can make my stomach churn, muscles clench, spine prickle, and eyes tear up in a span of a couple pages is a genius to my regard.”

Expressionless Face“The angel of Indian Lake by Stephen Graham Jones is my least favorite book of 2024 so far. The reason is because they were moments when it felt like a sure to read it. This book is a part of a trilogy. The first two books have a slow pace, but the payoff in the end is worth it. Unfortunately, this book starts off well and then drags on in the middle. Goal of reading this book was to see how it was going to end. Now that I read the ending I’m just disappointed. Jade Daniels is a character who grew on me, but it felt at times her narration rambled on and on and on. In the previous books, jades narration did not go off in tangents. I rated this book 3 stars out of five because I gave it a try, but unfortunately, the ending did not satisfy me because it felt anticlimactic.”
