Once a year for the past decade Nicolas has been visiting Falledge, he has kept to the shadows, not wanting to see anyone, apart from the one he comes to see. Justina and Nicolas were the perfect couple when they were younger, until she died and Nicolas ran away from the area. He returns every year to place a Hellebore flower on her grave site.
Never has he had any problems, until this fateful year when he is leaving town he sees someone sneaking into a laboratory and chases after them to try to help. Only problem is he ends up dead, and brought back by a witch, who was only trying to help. Help isn’t quiet what happens and he ends up changing into the Black Hellebore, helping the sheriff to maintain calm, well he will if she allows it.
As Nicholas he was never able to move on, but maybe as the Black Hellebore he will be able to settle down and possibly find love again. Only time will tell.
It started out quite promising, i really liked the idea of said person gaining powers this way and kind of not wanting them. Which lasted all of about three pages, I like that indesicion that he had at the start of the book and I kind of wished the author had carried that through all the way.
One thing that I didn't particulary like, as it came to light that everyone he knew in the beginning was dead, and had ended up commiting suicide. I felt by the third person this had been done to, that it was more trying to be the shock factor, but it fell a bit flat and kind of irritated me. I don't want to come across as mean, or to try to take away from what the author wrote (am sure there were lots of hours gone into this) but I just kind of got bored with the fact every person seemed to have committed suicide.
I think the characters have potential, if the author decides to carry on (which I am assuming they do want to, as there was a book 2 at the end of book 1 with a title :) ) I hope that the characters get a bit more fleshed out and kind of worry over something a bit longer than two pages.
Overall not the best read I've had this year, but it certainly wasn't the worse either. I might pick up book 2 just to see what the author has done
Then Bam !!! It was suddenly fantasy witches and a comic book super hero ? At first I thought, oh what a shame, this has just spoiled a good storyline, but I am so glad Nicole Zoltack pulled it out of the bag once again. She has such a great talent as an author. Suddenly the super hero stuff made sense and enhanced the storyline greatly. It was written in each of the characters first person which personally I prefer. The plots and people was easy to see in your minds eye. You was given little bits of info about the other characters running in the background, which helped the story along. The main characters gave you, heartbreak, disappointment, delusion, jealousy alongside belief, friendship, laughter even love.
I wish I had my own Black Hellebore, I was swooning all over the place. Yes this book had tongue-in-cheek comic book status, but it also had a great real life storyline running alongside it. Brilliant.
It's well written and the characters are so likeable, mostly, that I felt as if I knew them as friends!
The storyline was a bit far fetched but totally brilliant.
Once I got into the story I couldn't put the book down...
