Review

Brian Easton is a master storyteller who makes you feel like you are right there within the addictive storyline.
--angryprincessslashes.blogspot.com/2009/05/heart-of-scars-autobiography-of.html

From the Author

A sequel should not be the re-telling of the original story, but should re-invent the parts that worked. Heart of Scars is different from Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter in two important ways, mentioned here by way of introduction.
 
Heart of Scars covers a time period of about one year, whereas Autobiography spanned decades. Because of this the reader will detect, by necessity, a different rhythm from the first.

The second book also has a more somber tone than its predecessor as it explores the spiritual realm and its influence on the main character. This is a decidedly more violent novel as is unavoidable in the development of a character whose sense of hatred is as intense as Sylvester James.

Readers who enjoyed Autobiography should not anticipate a re-tread in this second book, and should be ready for a more solemn, brutal phase in the evolution of a werewolf hunter.
If you buy a new print edition of this book (or purchased one in the past), you can buy the Kindle edition for only $2.99 (Save 50%). Print edition purchase must be sold by Amazon. Learn more.

More About the Author

Brian P. Easton grew up among the hardwood bluffs of Southern Illinois, saddled between the banks of the Big Muddy and the Mississippi. His father, a horseman and preacher, taught him at an early age that werewolves were evil characters not heroes. Instead he encouraged his son to read about historic frontiersmen like Lewis Wetzel, or legendary gunmen like Bill Hickok. Small wonder the boy watched Gunsmoke and The Night Stalker with equal enthusiasm. Factor into this equation a 3-ton Royal typewriter given to him by his mother the year he turned 10 and the story just sort of writes itself. Most of his works include various occult and sub-cultural references, drawing both from decades of independent research and his own storied adventures; the majority of which are completely explainable. Easton's literary influences include the usual suspects: Lovecraft, Howard, Poe and Burroughs, but none have been as impactful as Cormac McCarthy and his masterpiece, Blood Meridian. He is currently engaged in the biggest adventure of his life: raising the son who will one day replace him.

In case I ever wonder why I never read books in a series back-to-back I'll have to look back no further than Heart of Scars, Brian Easton's sequel to Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter. For authors, a sequel may be a chance to develop a new voice or a different perspective on his characters or plotline. For the reader who reads the books soon after each is published, re-connecting with the characters may motivate them to overlook a sequel's flaws.

But for me, who read the books back to back, the differences betwee the two novels was jarring. For one, Autobiography had the real feel of an autobiography. It seemed the main character, Sylvester Logan James, was recalling his early life from a vantage point where he had attained some perspective. Such is not the case with Heart of Scars. In this novel the action again follows James, but it feels more like a filmed-as-it-happened documentary. It lacks the perspective that passing time and introspection provided for the first book. In fact the only introspection James is allowed in Heart of Scars seems to amount to little more than feeling he's a bad person who has done bad things and is destined for eternal damnation.

What it lacks in introspection, the book makes up for in violence and dreams/visions/hallucinations. The violence is pervasive and described in minute detail. In fact, there are fight scenes that seem to run on for page after page while Easton decribes in detail the sound of flash being ripped, blood gushing from wounds and bones not just snapping, but being shattered.

So, I stumbled across "Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter" a year or so ago and when I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. As soon as I finished the book, I discovered that there was a sequel, so I immediately bought it.

What we have here is the "Empire Strikes Back" of Easton's SLJ trilogy, one might say. Much darker and much more violent. Our hero is, page by page, becoming less of a hero and more of a putrid shell of a man as hate (and something else that I won't spoil here) consumes him. As SLJ takes his journey through this horror, and nearly loses everyone else he ever cared for, the book leads us up to a shocking twist at the end that sets up the 3rd book in a magnificent way.

When I got to the end of this book.... I was literally angry that I had to WAIT for the next book. I'm so excited to get my hands on the third book and find out what happens next.

This is a great book, especially if you loved the first one. Just be warned, it is violent and much darker - as I said before. BUT, that's part of this journey. Don't let it deter you.

This is Book 2, the first book is Autobiography of A Werewolf Hunter. The werewolves here are nasty creatures. Hunting them has it's effects on the main character, and it shows. I couldn't wait for Book 2, and I wasn't disappointed. It is much darker that the first one, but to me, almost even better. The first book was recommended, and I'm glad it was. I'm also glad that I could get my "fix" once Book 2 came out :). Enjoy!

Another great entry in the series.

Sylvester Logan James just might be the greatest anti-hero ever. Does he become more evil than the werewolves that he hunts? You'll have to read the book to find out......

Buy the book and read it. If you liked the first one, you'll love this one.

I think I love these two books because it's not what I expected to find between the covers. I enjoyed the first book more than this one, but not because of the quality.

First, this book takes a very dark turn into the mind of someone who has been broken and lost everything. I was often disgusted by the choices that James makes. I found myself rereading passages just to make sure that I had actually understood what had just happened. Sure enough, I had understood the craziness!

While it wasn't always pleasant to read, it was interesting. At times, I think that the violence was too much and seemed out of character for James. However, I suppose I should have been more surprised that he hadn't come to this before the opening of the second book!

What I appreciated about this book was the it did keep me on my toes. It's fasted paced and doesn't sit around making you wait for the next interesting thing.

I would like to see more of the Cheyenne Wolf Hunter in the next book, but who am I to judge what a character will make a writer do to a book.

Like all middle books in a trilogy, this book was darker, but it was an intrinsic part of his hero's journey. The writing was beautiful. I guess that's a strange thing to say about a horror novel, but it was. This man's craft is sublime. He makes murder and the grotesque an art--even better, it all has purpose to drive the story and the character forward.

I loved the first book, but this one really pushed me through the wringer and that's what I loved best about it.

If this man wrote a grocery list, I would sit down to read it eagerly.
