After coming back from the dead, Boller has a new intensifying supernatural ability. Is this new psychic power something he can use to benefit himself? Is it something he can use to help others? Maybe it's just a curse.
Zaden is not your typical vampire hunter. Where others may find and kill the demons, Zaden captures them to torture them for information. It all comes to a head in this story where Zaden catches up with his ultimate prize, a vampire with a soul.
I had a hard time getting into the book at first, probably because I'm not a golfer and that is what most of the first bits references are based on. After getting into the actual mystery though, I really enjoyed this book. Mike's writing style is unique, almost as if the main character is setting with you telling you everything over lemonade so some of his random thoughts pop up in with everything. The characters are relate-able, and although I had it figured out who did it pretty early in the novel, the reasons and details why came as a surprise. Very nice entry into the authors world.
This short story held all the aspects that I look for in one. I read short stories for 2 reasons; one as a palette cleanser after reading very long cerebral novels and to try out new authors to see if I like them. This had just enough character development for a short story, you didn't know the character, you just knew enough to be able to gain an understanding of what was going on (some short stories try to develop their characters too much, that can be saved for a novel). It had a quick plot line that kept you on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next, and it made me want more from this author. Very nice story of injustice.
Very well written story set within a modern world close to ours, but with some witchcraft, angels, and worship of gods in a caliber close to some of our mythological gods. I liked the story quite a bit, good character development, a unique plot line, and interesting mythology, but I hated the ending. I think it's supposed to be a cliffhanger, but really it's pulled off as seeming like the author just decided she was done writing and tied off the end abruptly. Interested in reading what's next and other writings from this author, but hoping the endings or cliffhangers get better.
