Review | The Only Good Indians

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones


It’s been a decade since four Native American men of the Blackfeet Nation walked away from a hunt with nothing to show but empty yet blood-stained hands.  They’ve all moved on but someone or something has not and it’s back for revenge.  The past catches up with each man in chilling ways, walking a fine line between the stereotypes placed on their culture by mainstream society and the haunting power of traditions.

I really don’t want to give too much of the plot away here!  I went in knowing little and it heightened my sense of anticipation.  The story struggles to gain a steady pace in the beginning; readers are introduced to each character and slowly given an explanation of what happened to the group on their last hunt together.  Despite the slow start, Jones delivers a fascinating horror story that manages to speak volumes on cultural identity while giving readers a violent rollercoaster tale!

The Only Good Indians is a captivating and inventive novel that I highly recommend to readers who enjoy horror.

Thanks to Gallery/Saga Press and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review. The Only Good Indians is scheduled for release on July 14, 2020.
