A new master of horror,
This review is from: The Possession Legacy (Paperback)
If you like horror stories munificently laced with gruesomeness, brutal violence and plenty of sexy stuff then this is definitely the book for you. I had been looking forward to reading this book and I was not disappointed. I don't want to waffle on about the plot and subject matter but I will say that `The Possession Legacy' is a cleverly crafted story with some original ideas and well-drawn characters plunged into nightmarish yet believable situations.
I think that a great writer is someone who can take something incredible and somehow turn it into something credible. A great writer can paint a vivid picture in the reader's mind and fuel their imagination. With `The Possession Legacy', Trevor Dalton achieves this. Trevor Dalton is a great writer.
As a long-time fan of horror literature, having read works by many famous writers in the genre, I tried to think which writers may have inspired and influenced Trevor Dalton. To be honest, I could not think of anyone specific. Trevor Dalton is an original with a style all of his own.
Don't just take my word for it - buy this book. Read it... alone at night... if you dare... and if you suddenly hear a strange droning noise, be very afraid!!!
By the way, in the message from the author at the beginning of this book, Mr Dalton states that next time he will promise to do better. Well, on this evidence, this will be a difficult promise to keep and, if he does manage to fulfil his promise, his next novel `Open Tap' should be an absolute corker.
