Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Robert Fleming ..In the grim reality of the Hood, young mothers pray to protect the demons of urban blight, drugs and crime. Evie Rhodes has turned the horror genre upside down by creating a haunting hybrid of Bram Stoker's mythical monster blended with the social and spiritual concerns of James Baldwin. Her writing is often terrifying, harrowing, finely written with more than a few soul-numbing frights. It's a roller-coaster ride of terror, wildly inventive, and ultimately, a well-tuned morality tale of our chaotic times. — Author of Havoc After Dark: Tales of Terror, The African American Writer's Handbook

This book was so horrible that I stopped reading it.
Amazon Customer
Secondly, so many (I'm sorry again for sounding harsh) ridiculous things happened in this book that I just started to feel outright insulted.

Character descriptions and depth could have been fleshed out more.

Format: Paperback
Newcomer Evie Rhodes has quickly established herself in the literary arena with her debut title EXPIRED. Known as an award-winning songwriter and music video scriptwriter, her foray into the literary world is sure to bring her to top levels of the media because of the genre in which it is written. Though a few horrific events occur, it's not necessarily horror, nor is it the typical contemporary fiction book. She has presented readers with a new type of read...a supernatural/psychological thriller that not only entertains, but evokes deep thought on living, life, and the good in each of us.

Tracie Burlingame is known around her Harlem neighborhood, mainly because of her successful beauty salon which caters to wealthy women across the city. Though she's a single mother, she has crawled to the top of the social ladder and established herself as an entrepreneur; sometimes at the expense of her four sons. With her main focus on acquiring money and more success, she's hard-nosed, self-centered, and a bit uncaring in her dealings with others. However, when two of her sons are killed, it soon becomes obvious that a serial killer is on the prowl and he has it out for Tracie and her offspring.

The killer, who isn't working alone, is on a deadly mission to milk the African-American community of Harlem of its history, heritage and hope for the future. Not only are Tracie's remaining sons at risk, but others are being singled out as well--those with extraordinary skills. The scariest part of all this is that there is a master plan in the works and the supernatural forces revolving around Harlem are set on exacting chaos.

The book is a terrifying, yet thrilling read which teaches that with just a little faith, unspeakable actions can take place.

Expired

Author: Evie Rhodes

Publisher: Kensington Publishing

ISBN#: 0758208707

Month Published: February 2005

Rating: 4 Stars

Reviewed by: Camellia M. Johnson

Evie Rhodes first debut book "Expired" makes a loud statement of how important our faith in God is in our lives. Not only our lives but our family and friends. Expired is a journey. It's adventurous journey into the unseen world. At times the scenes were so captivating that I felt I was in the same room. Evie captures all the emotions involved with life, death and the supernatural.

Tracie Burlingame is the woman we all want to achieve to be. Her business is flourishing and all but one of her sons is doing extremely well until her faith or lack thereof is tested. Souljah Boy is the divine friend of the family who proves to be the intercessory covering the family needed when attacked. Even though Tracie's boys, Dre, Michael, Randi and Rashod didn't have a strong background in Christianity, Dre knew to call on the name of Jesus. And when you're in trouble the name of Jesus will calm and correct your situations and circumstances.

Expired is an overwhelming storyline that brings fear, pain, anger, grief, comfort and faith to the readers. The insight that we need to pay attention to our faith, friends and associations is key as you read Tracie's life unravel in Expired. It's a shocking page-turner.

Format: Paperback
Evie Rhodes is a new fresh voice in Speculative Fiction. Her debut Novel "Expired" has all attributes of a classic novel, and omniscient point of view, well-developed characters and a suspenseful plot.

Set in Harlem, the story unfolds all of the sounds, smells and sights of the city. The reader quickly meets our heroine Tracey Burlingame, who faced with a spiritual battle leads the reader on an explosive journey

Evie Rhodes has skillfully demonstrated her ability to survive and standout in a crowed world of literary fiction.

Format: Paperback
I like some of the readers picked this book up on a whim. Figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. And I stuck by this book through thick and thin just to give it a fair chance. Normally, I can finish a book within hours if it is truly interesting, but I found it took me days to finish this book as I kept on having to put it down to give myself a break, before forcing myself to pick it back up again. I eventually had to ressort to skipping over sections that had a tendency to repeat themselves.

My major problem with it was the pacing of the story. It was too fragmented, sometimes going fast, sometimes dragging on. There was never really a steady fast pace that would make it an easy read.

Character descriptions and depth could have been fleshed out more. It was very much a one-dimensional book, where you couldn't really connect with the characters at all. You knew what they thought and how they felt, but you just could not connect with them, which made it even harder to really digest the underlying message being driven in this entire novel. This message was lost too much in the murky and stagnant pace of the story, before being somewhat fully revealed towards the end of the novel.

The idea was a nice concept, but probably could have been executed a bit better.
