Review by: Voice Spider on July 01, 2012 :
I picked this up because it was lovecraftian and a mythos story. The beginning of the story was well written. I enjoyed the characters and the story. The setting for what boded to be a really well done mystery story in the hard boiled fashion was set. Unfortunately the story suffers from some problems.

The first one is the editing. Throughout the story there are double words, issues with grammar and spelling issues. Most of these issues could have been solved with a couple read throughs. These errors detract from the story and tended to pull me out of the story.

Another issue was the way that the later part of the story went. Overall it felt rushed, a lot of the thought and planning of the earlier chapters vanishes and we're left with what feels like an afterthought. Where the opening chapters told a wonderful detective story chalked full of wonderful story elements, the later chapters don't flow as well. If he same level of detail and attention had been paid to this chapters, the story would have been far stronger.

This story would have gotten three stars, but these two elements dragged it down to two. Overall the story isn't that bad, and I did enjoy a majority of it. I would recommend this story to hardcore Lovecraft and Mythos fans, but otherwise I would say to pass it for the better edited ones.
