1.0 out of 5 stars Veyr bad writing, 29 Oct 2008
I have to agree with most of the negative reviews of this book on Amazon. It is obvious that the author has only a rudimentary grasp of how to construct a novel. There is frequent repetition of phrases, a narrow vocabulary, lack of tension, poor character development, wooden dialogue and no plausibility at all (I know it's supposed to be paranormal but I'm not talking about the premise here - it's the characters that are two-dimensional).

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a mystery..., 23 July 2007
... why this supremely talented artist was dropped by his record company. He certainly had potential to be a mainstream success (look at Amy Winehouse). I really don't understand it.

I do hope he finds another record label, as I'm sure he is destined for greatness. Just one listen to this record confirms this. I seriously recommend Tyler James's debut, if you can get hold of it. Every track on the album is fantastic, absolutely no filler. This is music of the highest quality.
