Yeates’ obvious flair for creating an immersive atmosphere had me hooked from the first page. I found his use of language to be fluid and beautiful, and I thought the story was evocative and horrifying. My main issue with Hell’s Teeth was an overwhelming problem with punctuation, the number of comma splices and inappropriate use of semicolons repeatedly distracting me from what was otherwise an amazing read. I did also find the constant barrage of darkness and horror a bit draining by the end, feeling that some kind of break from it all might have strengthened the final stretch. With that said, I found Yeates’ storytelling to be impressive, and even with the punctuation issues I rate Hell’s Teeth a solid four stars.
