“A tale of revenge, cultural identity, and the cost of breaking from tradition in this latest novel from the Jordan Peele of horror literature, Stephen Graham Jones.
_ _
Seamlessly blending classic horror and a dramatic narrative with sharp social commentary, The Only Good Indians follows four American Indian men after a disturbing event from their youth puts them in a desperate struggle for their lives. Tracked by an entity bent on revenge, these childhood friends are helpless as the culture and traditions they left behind catch up to them in a violent, vengeful way.” – Amazon

Kim’s Review

You can read The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones and enjoy it as a supernatural suspense or as a horror novel if you don’t read/watch a lot of horror or have a low tolerance for it. Or you can dig deeper and be amazed by the cyclical nature that Stephen Graham Jones incorporates into the story in regards to violence, a person’s heritage, and the destruction of animals in nature.

I read and watch a lot of horror so I wasn’t as disturbed by the gore as others. Although violence to animals is always hard for me to read/watch, so in that regard, it did make this book difficult to read at times, but I can see how it was necessary and an integral part of the story.

I was pleasantly surprised how this book has stuck with me. I find myself doing or seeing something and I’ll remember a part of the book. To me that’s what makes a novel so good, when you’re still thinking about it days later.

The Only Good Indians is a novel I will highly recommend to anyone looking to read something original and thought provoking or paranormal suspense/thrillers.
