Enter into the violent world of the Cartel, Camorra, Belial's MC and Prydain where death and romance go hand in hand. AJ Adams novels are all self-standing and although some feature the same families, you need not read them all - although it would be awesome if you did!
A terrific read that
would make a good sensuous horror film
I thoroughly enjoyed
this story. The hero Conall is a nice, ordinary, decent
man, possibly one of the best moral men I’ve come across in ages. The child,
Shyla, is a great character too, sensitive and not mawkish.
The story itself built nicely, and there
was a good balance between horror and hope. Without going into spoilers, this
is a story you will probably want to read in one go.
One thing that thrilled me was that it’s
set in the UK after WWII and it mentions the bombings of Clydebank where the
shipbuilders were working. My father’s family are from there, and my father
used to tell me about those bombings so it was odd and yet familiar to see it
The one thing I felt was a bit awkward was the revealing
of the reason behind the haunting. There was too much information dumped in one
go, and some of it didn’t quite hook up for me.But overall it was a great read and I’d certainly put Brantwijn
Serrah on my Favourite list.
