The Quarry by DM Gritzmacher

As Germany wages war against France, a four year old girl is hidden away with other village refugees inside an underground quarry. However, the labyrinth of tunnels and shafts not only hold salvation within its rocks and soil but also an ancient kind of evil. Years later with suppressed nightmares, Jeanne heads back to her home land of France for solace and unanswered questions. What she finds will unfold the past and horrifically collide with her future.

DM Gritzmacher’s novel, The Quarry, is an extraordinarily disturbing story emanating from a dark subterranean maze. These tense thrills and grisly acts of violence are his doorway to Hell. It begins on page one and continues through a barrage of war-torn evil that roams the underground catacombs. From old wives tales to a very real unimaginable evil, Gritzmacher combines gods, monsters and myths to achieve an advance level of scariness.

Gritzmacher approaches horror in several ways. There’s the instant blindside jump scare that leaves you thinking…”did that just happen?” Then there’s the heinous slow burn moments that causes a feeling of anxiety leaving you thinking…”is this really happening?” These dark and terrible images of extreme disturbances speaks volumes. This author causes the reader’s mind to carry the burden of memories long forgotten. Not since Daniel Volpe’s Left To You has a book left such an impression on me.
Diving into this piece of dark fiction, I did not know what to expect, I was immediately submersed into the plot and how the author laid out the pieces of his perturbed puzzle. I might add that The Quarry is book two of the Skulldiggery series, but also can be read as a stand alone. It ranks as a must read Horror Bookworm Recommendation. Don’t miss out on this one my friends.
