The cover attracted this reader to want to read what was between the pages. Thinking it was another zombie book,I was pleasantly surprised by the writings and incorporation of all sorts of characters from vampires, werewolves, ghosts, even the Sac squash creature, oh don’t forget the shift changers. The book borders on horror but there are comedic scenes in it. I read one to my teens and they went off to debate making up their own fantasy characters.
The sarcastic twist on life in general keeps the reader entertained and compels them to want to complete this short story. The lure of wild insane lusty sex about to occur and proof, The tricks and devices to contain the characters are genius; golden handcuffs, liquid portions, and other trinkets. The traitors following their enemies. The fighting scenes. The visions of horrific death, makes the reader’s heart race. The addition of other characters being hunted and the action scenes make this book worth the purchase price alone. The element of chase keeps the rider anticipating the capture or rescue of the heroes. as they are chased into hid-outs.
The conclusion is powerful yet leaves the reader wanting more. 4.5 stars
In the author’s words; The coming trial looked bleak. There were only so may ways that a you dismember a body, unless Mathyas was busy dreaming up new and crueler ways to deal the sentence out. Bo would not put it past him to try out new twisted torture to liven up the crowd.
This is a keeper and should be stored in your library. A book to take out to chase away the blues at the same time get your heart racing.
