This is not one story - but a series of stories about a teenage monster-hunter who may or may not be insane. These stories are so atmospheric and heavy with poetic language that, at times, it's hard to figure out what's actually going on. But for all that, they are intriguing and delightfully creepy. The collection gives you just enough to want more.
Kiernan is an excellent writer, but this book is strange in that the stories are arranged mostly in reverse chronological order. It's a little confusing. To anyone interested in reading this, I would recommend checking out Alabaster: Wolves instead. It's the graphic novel version of this book, with gorgeous artwork, and incorporates the majority of the content of the stories in Alabaster much better.
Interconnected stories of an albino girl who is sent by an angel to kill bizarre monsters. Alabaster uses suggestion and ambiguity rather than graphic violence to create its dark and atmospheric mood.
