Cydonia : Rise of the Fallen a Novel by Seyi Sandra David
Review by Andy Strutt - Author of "The Afflicted"
I have always been a fan of the supernatural and paranormal but unfortunately, Seyi's was not a name with which I was familiar. However, after being introduced to her through Arrow Gate Publishing Ltd I found the write up on her work to be most interesting. I therefore put her new book on my Christmas list and was I glad that I had done so.
Her novel is superb. It is written so well with multiple plot twists and such vibrant characters that I found myself totally unable to put it down until I had finished it, much to the chagrin of my wife and children over the holidays. I started reading it on Christmas day and through many hours of gripping reading, I had completed it by the evening of the 27th.
The protagonist Aaron Cohen (you really would not want to be him) is beautifully constructed and you find yourself on a roller coaster of a ride as you follow his exploits against the demon Tyrus. You cannot help but feel for his humanity as he faces challenge after challenge to save the day.
If thrillers or the paranormal are your thing then you are doing yourself a major disservice by not ordering this book immediately!
So as a parting gesture, my thoughts are as follows:
Negative: I wish I had read Seyi's "Feet of Darkness" first!
Positive: I now have added a superb new author to my reading list and cannot wait to get stuck into her other novels.
