They all thought it would make such a pretty gift, a simple pendant on a glittering golden chain. To the residents of Pine Cone, Alabama, it was the prettiest thing they ever saw. A gift of beauty.

It passed from the dead to the living

McDowell's writing style is so fluid and pleasing that even a far-fetched, drawn out plot such as is found in Amulet is satisfying. I did find the increasingly grotesque deaths getting tiresome, but still enjoyed the book very much. It's a shame this writer died so young and with such a sparse body of work; his later horror novels are among the best written.
