This is by far the most engaging, and most original, story I've read in quite some time.
THE TEMPLE brings metaphysical mythical into the realm of totally plausible, and does so with romance, intrigue, and exceptional good taste.
If you like visionary-metaphysical mythical-mystic romance-mysteries, read this one.
Despite being a little sad, "The 22nd and 24th President of the United States of America" is another good giggle-story in cool weird-twist McNally style ... while "Breaking Up is Hard to Do" is more thought-provoking rough-&-tumble. I like the twisty way EDDIE'S SHORTS unfold.
I liked this whodunit mystery in fantasy/paranormal garb. Even with a few potentially gruesome scenes, it managed to retain a cozy-mystery feel for me ... while putting some creative spins and twists on the creature-worlds of myth. And though the ending left some unfinished business as a series set-up, all the "Volume 1" business managed to get resolved.
I was hesitant to read a book about childhood traumas, because I don't enjoy reading tragic stories. But after being given a coupon for this one, then letting it languish in my To-Be-Read folder for several months, I decided to give it a go. And I'm glad I did. The attitude and presentation made this a story of hope and redemption, instead of the heart-wrenching tragedy it would otherwise have been. Nicely done.
