A fetching story
In Fetch, Father Ian encounters something he doesn't understand...

Review by: Justin Lowmaster on May 25, 2011 :
I really enjoyed Fetch. I was expecting something about a dog or werewolf, due to the title, but what I got was a different kind of foe. That was actually nice. I didn't have to worry about a werewolf going shirtless or anything.

I do like both the main characters in the story. They have very different situations and viewpoints. It makes for interesting dialog.

My only complaint was that I had to read the first paragraph or so a couple times. I'm not sure why, but it seemed hard to register what was happening. The effect, however, does not occur again in the story, and it did not detract from the book past the initial confusion.

The story poses some interesting questions that the character must come to grips with. It is not only a fun and gripping read, it gives you a few things to think about, but without being forceful about it.

This is totally worth reading. I might even give it another read down the road.

Review by: Arlene Radasky on March 28, 2011 :
"The Twin I never had…." This was how Scott started our journey into the darkness of demons. After the death of a friend, we follow a priest, Father Ian, who was destined to try to fight his own way back into the world of love and light. It is a battle with possession, a battle with guilt, a battle with loss of confidence, and a battle with the loss of the recognition of important positive people and events in our lives. We tilt back and forth in this battle from darkness to light, each of us, hoping to weigh the scale just a bit more to the side of the light. Is the demon real or is he something in our mind that we must fight every day? What ever the battle, Scott reminds us to look at the love and light around us to win, to be victorious in even small battles, and conquer the largest demons in the constant war within ourselves.

Very well done. Inspiring.

Review by: David J. Avila on Feb. 06, 2011 :
Honestly, the beginning did not pull me in. Was I tired? Was I jaded? I don't know, but I keep reading and hoping for the best.
This is some kind of literary trick by Mr. Roche because I was quickly caught off guard and I tumbled through the entire story, my mind and sense of safety assaulted by Roche's storytelling. I was honestly creeped out by the honesty of horror for a man of faith.
Great Story and Great Price. I am excited for Mr. Roche's future as a writer.

Review by: J-P Losier on Jan. 24, 2011 :
Scott Roche has been writing about this for years, and it shows in the easy way he pulls you into the world of the characters and very quickly changes your perceptions of that world, and your own. It made me stop and think the first time I read the story, and every time I've re-read it.

A short read that rings like a bugle in the distance, familiar, haunting, echoing, and urging you to prepare for battle.

Review by: David Sobkowiak on Jan. 24, 2011 :
I have to say I'm more than a little moved by this story. It not only scares me on a spiritual level, but also on an emotional level. It speaks to a greater battle that we as humans often never consider.

There was a malevolence in the story that stayed with me every time I had to put it down. A nagging feeling of what was to come.

Five stars for being highly entertaining and thought provoking.

I would highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a dark /psychological/spiritual thriller, and really, to anyone looking for a highly entertaining story with impact.
