Description

It begins with a letter from a prisoner... As he attempts to rebuild his life in rural Oregon after a tragic accident, Malcolm Mays finds himself corresponding with Dusha Chuchonnyhoof, a mysterious entity who claims to be the owner of Malcolm's house, jailed unjustly for 117 years. The prisoner demands that Malcolm perform a gory, bewildering task for him. As the clock ticks toward Dusha's release, Malcolm must attempt to find out whether he's assisting a murderer or an innocent. The End of the Sentence combines Kalapuya, Welsh, Scottish, and Norse mythology with a darkly imagined history of the hidden corners of the American West. Maria Dahvana Headley and Kat Howard have forged a fairy tale of ghosts and guilt, literary horror blended with the visuals of Jean Cocteau, failed executions, shapeshifting goblins, and magical blacksmithery. In Chuchonnyhoof, they've created a new kind of Beast, longing, centuries later, for Beauty.

Professional reviews

"Stefan Rudnicki's full-bodied deep voice sounds like one might imagine the voice of God. So who better to narrate this tale of guilt and redemption? Rudnicki's tone is full of sorrow and anguish when voicing Malcolm Mays, who runs away to a small Oregon town to escape a tragic accident. His new life is quickly derailed when he receives mail from Dusha Chuchoonyhoof, a town legend who claims to be the owner of Malcolm's house. Dusha is about to be released from prison, and he expects Malcolm to perform a gory ritual to welcome him home. The novel draws on a dizzying blend of Kalapuya, Welsh, Scottish, and Norse mythology, and the listener's bewilderment is echoed by Rudnicki's Malcolm. The veteran narrator aids listeners by making the town's oddball denizens distinctive and the paranormal elements clear. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
