So the characters are fantastic, but then there's the writing. Sharp, witty in places, always making you want to know more. There's the crisp, authentic dialogue and just the right amount of description, perfectly gauged to create place and atmosphere, but never at the expense of slowing the action. In fact the pace of these books is, I would say, one of their strongest elements; you will certainly never be bored.
The themes of this series are unquestioningly disturbing, and it is clear that the author has done her research well. But alongside the violence and bleakness there is a feeling of hope, and the positive traits of humanity are all in there as well; loyalty, compassion and resilience to name but a few.
Another one of DJ Bennet's books that kept me reading into the early hours of the morning; no way could I go to sleep without knowing how it all worked out, and I recommend it without hesitation.
The villains are human and credible as is the whole cast, and the scenarios are expertly set up to hold the reader on the edge of his seat.
Although adult and graphic the content is never gratuitous; you will be shocked but not offended. Neither are you whipped into outrage; instead you become involved in Michael's tribulations, willing him to emerge unscathed from the twilight world - a measure of the quality of the writing.
Tip: read the trilogy from the beginning.
If I'm honest I didn't quite buy the lengths this person was prepared to go to for a screwed up 18-year-old, but that aside Calling the Tune fizzes with tension from the start and builds to a compelling climax.
If you've been following the series from the start this is a must read.
The concluding part to the series, and the author has done a magnificent job in keeping the reader fully engaged with the characters.
We catch up with Michael at the trial, face to face with his most ugliest demon; the man who raped him and threw his young life into confusion and chaos. Unable to continue, he flees from court - with young reporter Becky, in close pursuit.
The enigmatic but slightly chilling Lenny makes a reappearance and determined to get to the root of evil, Michael and Becky are caught in the traps of his past. I was rooting for all three of them as the final third of the book builds to a gripping climax. Does Michael finally get to call the tune? It was touch and go all the way but this is clever plotting and pacing.
Superb writing and characterisation, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Definitely a page turner.
