A Riveting and Disturbing Read,
This review is from: Shadow Man (Lash) (Kindle Edition)It is the depression and most people are suffering hard times, but Lash, once dirt-poor boy from the swamp, is doing well. He has become bodyguard and friend to Abraham, powerful vampire ruler. But his horrific past catches up with him and he still has nightmares every night.
Shadow Man, the second in the Lash series, is a very dark book. It is the study of the evolution of a killer. As the story progresses, Lash becomes more and more cruel and merciless, no longer obeying even his private, admittedly very flexible, moral code. It seems there is nothing he is not prepared to do in order to survive, and he does some dreadful things just for his own pleasure.
Tara Fox Hall's superb writing draws you in, so that even when you are repelled by some of Lash's acts, you cannot help feeling some sympathy for him. And you find yourself gripped by a horrid fascination.
A very disturbing book written by a mistress of horror. Well done, Tara. You creeped me out again!
