Review of Nick Cutter’s Little Heaven

I just finished “Little Heaven” by Nick Cutter, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Talk about a twisted journey into the the deep, dark heart of the wilderness (literally)! The story revolves around a group of three misfit mercenaries who are hired to help a woman check on the welfare of her nephew at a remote religious cult called Little Heaven. What starts as a seemingly routine job quickly descends into a supernatural nightmare.

One of the standout aspects of this novel is Cutter’s ability to build tension and create an eerie atmosphere. From the very beginning, he expertly establishes an unsettling sense of foreboding that lingers throughout the entire narrative. The remote and desolate setting amplifies the feeling of isolation, adding to the growing sense of dread.

The characters in “Little Heaven” are well-crafted and complex. Each mercenary has their own distinct personality and backstory, which adds depth to the overall narrative. The occasional camaraderie and frequent conflicts within the group create an additional layer of tension, making the reader genuinely care about their fates.

Cutter’s writing style is both descriptive and visceral, effectively capturing the grotesque and macabre elements of the story. The horrors that unfold in Little Heaven are not for the faint of heart. The author doesn’t shy away from graphic and unsettling scenes, delivering a terrifying experience that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

The novel does move a bit slowly at times, but it is well worth the time and the ending is an definite payoff! Highly recommended!
