I can t believe the Caskey saga is over This six book series was an incredible example of Southern Gothic literature Blackwater had everything you could want family secrets, ghostly visitations, river creatures, unexplainable phenomenon, and all of the drama you would expect to see in a soap opera The conclusion to this series was quite fitting, in my humble opinion, but a part of me wishes that

I can certainly see myself reading it again in the future.Highest recommendation for the entire series The Rain is the final chapter in the Caskey saga There was not a weak point in this entire series The drama was sort of like a Soap Opera Remind me of Dark Shadows a little bit The saga contained family secrets, river creatures, ghosts and muchThe end was very good in the way it was handled This

finally catches up with our brackish heroine and her brood as the vengeful ghosts of the men, women and children who died so that the Caskeys could prosper return to collect their pound of flesh from the surviving members of this wonderfully rendered cast of southern romantics, plotters, fools, madmen and madwomen, and literal monsters After 800 pages and fifty decades of narrative, it is painful to see so many once spry and capable characters now aged to decrepitude McDowell treats these characters with a melancholy dignity up until the moment they suffer deaths that are sometimes cruel and undeserved And with a torrent of water and pathos this long story comes to its satisfying conclusion, and the reader can t help but admire Blackwater s dense web of intrigue and incident, its patient and rewarding characterizations, and the air of insouciance it maintains as it sidesteps the heteronormative status quo by presenting positive portrayals of female autonomy and homosexuality A superb reading experience and thus I have came to the end of this phenomenal saga view spoiler I was a little let down by the ending because Elinor already told us when she goes, she s taking the town with her hide spoiler this has been such a wonderful journey and the Caskey s will always have a place in my heart my favorite out of the saga is probably the War and thus I have came to the end of this

prose that we would expect to find from southern authors like Ron Rash, William Gay, and Pat Conroy McDowell has a very matter of fact delivery that on the surface sometimes might appear dry, but it is somehow quite engaging I actually read the new 788 page single volume hardcover edition of BLACKWATER recently published by Valancourt Books Despite its doorstopper size, I never found myself disinterested in the book, nor did I ever have the urge to abandon it I know BLACKWATER is also classified as horror, but the horror elements were sprinkled in here and there We get Elinor and Frances Caskey, who appear as entirely normal women, but who in fact are shape shifting river monsters We also get some ghosts thrown into the mix, but we never really learn any details about them I found the handling of these supernatural elements to be rather confounding and too ambiguous I was really hoping forscares, as well asbackground involving the river creatures and the ghosts McDowell didn t have to spell everything out, but I would have loved to have knownabout this vague horror thread that was woven into the lives of the Caskey s For me, BLACKWATER is a little hard to rate because I felt it was a mix of 3 5 star sections I also thought the ending was a bit too abrupt, and I think an epilogue would have been quite fitting Despite my perceived shortcomings of this sweeping epic, I very much enjoyed the story and history of Perdido and the Caskey family In addition, McDowell does manage to pull off a few instances of delicious, quiet horror I liked The Amulet and The Elementals, better, but BLACKWATER definitely had its moments too 3.5 stars overall `Download Book ⇧ Blackwater VI: Rain ↿ As the Caskey family and their town of Perdido rode the crest of prosperty in thes,
