Plot/Idea: Kaine's aptly named horror novel centers on a newly eloped couple who find themselves being pursued by a terrifying killer on a motorcycle.
Prose: Kaine's writing has momentum, action, and tension, and unfolds in a cinematic manner, but is sometimes halted by an overwrought style.
Originality: Seasoned readers of thriller and horror novels may recognize tropes. While the work offers an intriguing blend of thriller, fantasy, and horror, the writing can come across as occasionally grandiose.
Character Development/Execution: The characters fulfill their roles within the intense, high-octane circumstances. Readers may crave a somewhat more emotional connection to them, even as character growth (understandably) takes a backseat to plot and terror.
