Maplecroft (The Borden Dispatches #1) by Cherie Priest lived up to the hype I was seeing online by friends and by other authors I enjoy. It's very classic Lovecraft, with a slow build, a bunch on confusing events, a complicated ending with the characters and reader only being aware of a small part and a good solid wrap up (with the possibility of more to come). There were a lot more survivors than I expected, and a surprising number of them were mostly sane as well. And the esoteric terms were lessen than anything from Lovecraft, which made for an easier read. Good solid horror.
