It’s October 2023, four years after the events of Don’t Fear the Reaper. Jade is back home and working as a high school history teacher just as Proofrock is about to face another massacre. This Halloween will be Proofrock’s final stand against the secrets that have been hidden under the lake at the center of this cursed town for generations. Readers will get wrapped up in the action as bodies pile up, but it will be Jade who leads them through, as she comes to terms with traumas both personal and historical, uses her knowledge of slasher films, and learns to trust herself and her renewed connection to her Indigenous heritage. It is the perfect conclusion to this trilogy of ghosts and monsters, both earthly and supernatural, and of secrets that must finally be brought to the surface. A story masterfully told, but most of all, one that provides a final girl to cherish.
VERDICT Jones has given the world a gift, an epic tale for the ages, both a violent, high-octane slasher and a frank, thought-provoking indictment of the U.S., past and present.
