Holy cow, the intensity on this is through the roof!
I thought the idea that you could trade your bad body parts for new ones intriguing, and I had a feeling Ash wouldn’t like the restrictions that come with the trade. The thing I loved about this one is that there were quite a few characters that had a stake in what was going on. They all had traded something or needed something from Snare.
Once things started going downhill for Ash, it only got worse. It’s all incredibly tense. You lose hope, then gain it multiple times. The storyline is super fun, and Ash is a great main character. I love her strength, and that she won’t take no for an answer. And to think this is book 1 in a series! I can’t even imagine where book 2 will lead us, but I can’t wait to find out. Nicely done.

A TOWN DIVIDED. A DEMON MADE WHOLE.
When rock guitarist Ash Hudson suffers a career-ending hand injury, she seeks out the only thing that can heal it–her hometown’s darkest secret.
For decades the residents of Hollow Hills, Pennsylvania, have offered their diseased and injured body parts to a creek demon named Snare. In return, Snare rewards its Traders with healthy replacement parts. There’s only one catch: if Traders leave town, their new parts vanish forever.
Ash wants a new hand, but living in Hollow Hills isn’t an option. Not when her band is one gig away from hitting the big time. Desperate, she bargains with Snare, promising to help the demon complete its organ collection in exchange for both a new hand and the freedom for everyone to leave town.
As her band’s show rapidly approaches, Ash teams up with her estranged father in a last-ditch effort to recruit new Traders. But not everyone trusts Snare’s offer, and Ash soon learns how far her neighbors will go to protect their precious parts.
With her family in danger and her band waiting, Ash must find a way to help Snare. But even if she succeeds, there’s no telling what Snare plans to do with everyone’s bad parts.
