Reviews of Children of the Cross by Lawrence Van Hoof

solar storm reviewed on Aug. 4, 2013

Disclaimer: I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.

A supernatural novel that has original supernatural beings, but suffers from a confusing plot.

The cover is a bit off putting since I am not sure what it has to do with the story at all except for it being Cora who happens to be a prostitute. The summary talks about a supernatural mafia looking for the Light. Not much detail is provided which makes sense since the author doesn't want to give any secrets away, but a reader could certainly expect more detail in the book. Unfortunately, very little detail is given about the Light, Teresa, and her mafia are. I personally kept thinking of them as vampires.

Teresa is searching for the Light for reasons that were never made clear. Teresa is supposed to be a leader, but I felt she was more of a spoiled teenager with servants who had to cater to her every whim. She had very little self control. My confusion and uncertainty only increased as the novel went on. I started off enjoying the book, but kept expecting answers that never came. The ending only tells me that a lot of people died and that the Light was actually a real thing. I would have loved more explanation.
