When a young woman clears out her deceased grandmother’s home in rural North Carolina, she finds long-hidden secrets about a strange colony of beings in the woods in this chilling novel that reads like The Blair Witch Project meets The Andy Griffith Show.

When Mouse’s dad asks her to clean out her dead grandmother's house, she says yes. After all, how bad could it be?

Answer: pretty bad. Grandma was a hoarder, and her house is stuffed with useless rubbish. That would be horrific enough, but there’s more—Mouse stumbles across her step-grandfather’s journal, which at first seems to be filled with nonsensical rants…until Mouse encounters some of the terrifying things he described for herself.

Alone in the woods with her dog, Mouse finds herself face to face with a series of impossible terrors—because sometimes the things that go bump in the night are real, and they’re looking for you. And if she doesn’t face them head on, she might not survive to tell the tale.

From Hugo Award–winning author Ursula Vernon, writing as T. Kingfisher, The Twisted Ones is a gripping, terrifying tale bound to keep you up all night—from both fear and anticipation of what happens next.

This book was crazy strange, I really liked it at first then it just turned into strange and I could not understand.

I loved this book! I find most thrillers, especially ones that feature elements of the supernatural, to be too far fetched to the point where it just becomes silly. I also tend to loose interest once "the monster is out of the closet" because it's either something ridiculous or something dull that's been done a million times. This was nothing like that. I was hooked from the start. I needed to know what the h*ll was going on! The protagonist was likable, she had a sense of realism and a "no b*llshit" attitude that made her very relatable and, at times, funny. the fact that her sidekick is a dog is a nice touch. Great and thrilling listen.

At first the narrator’s voice sounded like the automated voice on TikTok videos, but once she found her groove, she did so well!! She did a great job distinguishing between the protagonist, step grandfather, weird diary girl, and Foxy. Best thing I can say about this book is that I never felt bored!

I wanted to get into this book, I really did, but it wasn’t until after 19 chapters that I finally found myself interested in what was happening and what would happen next. Extremely slow build up to what could have actually been a very interesting story had it been presented differently.

I loved this book. It was funny and scary and I twisted myself around like the twisted ones.

Just didn’t do it for me. No suspense and anything truly shocking or frightening. Main character has an somewhat abrasive personality.

I love this book!! It’s scary, exciting, and original all at the same time. It’s been six months since I read it and I still think about it. It’s quite haunting and disturbing, but in a good way. I highly recommend it.
