Sun holesby Nieves Mories, is an outstanding horror novel. An addictive, perfectly plotted novel that doses out information impeccably, constantly plays with the reader’s expectations, is written in brilliant prose, is inhabited by characters more complex than it might seem at first glance, and closes with a brutal climax.

It begins by describing a bloody massacre. And from there, we go back in time to meet those involved in the massacre, both victims and executioners.

It addresses, from a moderately original perspective, concepts already established in the horror imagination such as twins, the double or revenge from beyond the grave. It also pays explicit homage to Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, contributing her grain of sand in the process.

He devotes a considerable amount of his time to social criticism, attacking various evils (among which are, for example, the impunity of the upper class, the misdeeds of the Church, and the submission of women in families with a patriarchal structure).

In short: Sun holes This is a horror novel of extraordinary quality. It can be read in just a few hours with a mixture of amusement and disgust, but its well-crafted characters, settings and scenes will remain in our memory for a long time.
