BEST BARGAIN EVER
I am completely surprised by how much I liked this. Yes, it definitely has a horror element that was pretty intense for me but that was actually secondary to all of the things I loved. It’s as though the author keyed into all of the things I love in other genres- pulp noir, mysteries, fantasy, thrillers- and put them all together in one complex, entertaining read.
The main character, Soren Chase, definitely has the “knight in tarnished armor” feel of Raymond Chandler’s Phillip Marlow. And there is a very original take on the usual fantasy monsters and other fantasy tropes. But best of all, the mystery really is a mystery which I couldn’t begin to figure out and the twists and turns just kept on coming- right up to the end. I won’t say another word about the plot- the constant surprise was part of the enjoyment. I will say that in a lot of ways this reminds me of the feeling I got reading “The Dresden Files” years ago.
I have a pretty strict self-imposed rule- I don’t give five stars unless I expect to re-read a book. And I’ve never given five stars to a fantasy book (If I had reviewed “The Rook” that would have been one). But it’s my rule so I can break it if I want to :) While I won’t read this again (intensity and as I said- surprise is half the fun), I am dying to read the sequel. (Write faster, Rob Blackwell) For now I’ll have to content myself with the short story, “The Last Blog” that I also picked up yesterday (free at the time). But I need to wait for my heart to quit racing…
The first thing that got me into the book was the blurb when I started reading it I knew it just had to be a good one. And I was right.
This book had something a bit fresh for me and that the fact there are "pretenders" which are monster who take on the lives of others you have seen them in Supernatural.
Soren his life was turned upside down eight years ago and he doesn't really remember much of what happened, but he has vowed to find the person who has killed his friends. This leads us to now where he hunts the paranormal. During one of his hunts he meets a girl named Annika who has a job offering for him from her boss. He wants him to go into this forest that has claimed so many lives for a missing girl, but this case is a big one. It is much more than he is expecting it to be. In this forest things are not what they appear. With a lot of researching from not only Soren but from his assistant as well he learns what the treasure is that is out there. He finally understands why people are searching for it. But has Soren's future already been written by the past?
There is action through out the book, there are other paranormal creatures besides the "pretenders." What is out there seems a whole lot more scarier than people that look like ghost.
I have to say the ending was a TWIST that I didn't see coming and I want to read more of Soren's adventures I want to know who else knows about him.
Definitely worth a read, I finished this in a weekend as was totally absorbed.
