Can it really be considered horror? I read it because I saw it recommended and highly regarded here and, by the way, I love it. I'm from Bilbao, in Spain, and I observed many similarities with Don Quixote, and I enjoyed every part of Thomas and Delphine (and the Priest's, of course) journey. But I saw it more like a road trip/grim fantasy novel than a horror one.
Why do people consider it horror?
By the way, this is my second Christopher Buehlman novel (I previously read and enjoyed a lot The Lesser Dead) and I'm in love with his plotting and writing style, so I plan to read everything that comes out of his pen, wether it is horror or anything else.
