5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I've read, 28 Nov. 2013
This review is from: The Offering (Kindle Edition)
This has got to be one of my all-time favourite Joanne Clancy books so far, seeing as I'm sure there is much more to come from this brilliantly talented writer and I can't wait to read them, being a huge fan of her work already. The Offering is the captivating and gripping story of a loving mother and child who move to a remote and mystical part of Ireland to start a new life and what happens when they come into contact with the wrong person at the wrong time. As the madman not only takes over their lives for a short while, but ultimately he commits the most heinous of crimes against them that it resonates within your mind and disturbs it slightly so you become entwined with the storyline as much as the vines in the forest. It takes a special author to be able to make you feel the kind of emotion that Joanne Clancy brings out in her characters, for if this skilled author can make you care about what happens to a man that everybody who knows him is literally scared to death of him and rightly so when you find out why he became the monster he turned into, then Joanne Clancy must be doing something right. Along with her vivid descriptions and wonderful writing to bring the whole thing alive and make it breathe of its own accord so it comes across as being very real and it could happen to anyone. Plus the pace of the plot was perfect and the way in which the insanity was portrayed was strongly convincing, while I also particularly liked the way it was broken up into parts and you got to read about how this affected everyone involved. It was at times heartbreaking to take in as you felt the hurt, the horror and eventually, the hope of a peaceful conclusion to this haunting tale that will stay with you long after you've finished it. For this is definitely a page turner and then some, so I think you should treat yourself to this fascinating novel and I bet you'll feel the same way too by the end of it.
