Larry Neuhaus is an artist who is on vacation with his lover. The hope is that Larry will get back to his painting once again. He is recovering from a mental breakdown after his former lover killed herself. Larry blames himself. One night while standing on his balcony, he thinks he sees a woman attacked by a shark. Is it his mind playing tricks on him or is it the real deal? It turns out she is not alone. Her young lover turns up dead also and is none other the son of Roger Hays. Roger is hell bent on finding the killer of his son and will stop at nothing until he exacts his revenge. He just may open a Pandora's Box in the process.
Larry and his new friends must join forces to unravel a mystery and fight a battle that is as old as time. This is the first book in the urban fantasy series, Legacy of the Gods. It is a phenomenal read that had me riveted from the start. It is a mixture of horror, fantasy and myth that takes you on a roller coaster ride from the depths of the ocean to above the ground. The story is extremely well developed and takes you smoothly from one scene to the next. The description of the characters is so well defined that you can see them in your mind while you are reading about them. I find this to be a rare talent. Most authors are descriptive; but not all can paint an actual picture of what you should see. I am a cover person and I love this one. It is right on with the story. I also have to mention that the book contains a couple of pictures that absolutely make the story. My only complaint is the book ended and now I have to wait for the next one to be published.Read more ›
This is an intricate story, with lots of action; characters that become friends (even some of the bad guys!); and many surprises along the way. The story is told from several of the character's viewpoints, giving the reader a well-rounded view of the action, and creating empathy for all involved.
Set on a romantic New England island, there's no disappointment in the love story, either. There's plenty of horror, humor, mystery, fantasy, and camaraderie. Michael West blends it all perfectly, creating a very believable world of monsters that live among us.
This book is a great read, and left me with many images that will play in my mind for years to come. I love this story, and I can't wait to read more of it in the next book.
Check out the book's trailer:
Colonial Bay is one of those quaint seaside towns along the New England coastline. The island on which it sits is a nice little tourist trap just off New Hampshire's shores, but things turn bloody after a supposed shark attack and a young couple goes missing. Sound a bit like Jaws? Well, maybe if Jaws had a baby with Jason Vorhees, because what artist Larry Neuhaus saw from his balcony didn't look entirely like a shark--it looked more like a man.
Meanwhile, off the coast of Portugal, scientist and explorer, Carol Miyagi has discovered what she believes is Atlantis, relics of a long-lost city shrouded for centuries in a giant cavern beneath volcanic rock. The place is a veritable paradise for anyone in her field, but her claim on the spot is threatened as her team is running out of funding from their billionaire benefactor, and she doesn't want to risk having to leave the place unattended searching for more backers in case another team swooped in and takes the spoils. The billionaire in question, Roger Hays, however, is distracted from his business dealings because his son is one-half of that couple who went missing in Colonial Bay.Read more ›
You know what books I am talking about, the ones you read which stay with you, like my Hemingway moment. That have grabbed you in some way with some `hook', dragging you along for the ride. The ones that a month, a year or even five later you see something, or read something which brings you back to that moment in the book, where you are, what you are doing, what you are eating... Some of you have a handful, some of you, like me, have different handfuls that I cycle through because books are part of a central core of my being. Poseidon's Children and the rest of the Legacy of Gods series may possibly come to be one of those books. Let's talk about why, this definitely will not be a normal review, perhaps more of a discussion on passion and why I feel passionate and so excited about talking about Michael West's latest experience in words.
Earlier this week I asked Michael West why Urban Fantasy? I tend to not read reviews or synopsis' because every time I do I get thrown completely off and at times I go off on a tangent because these labels that are forced upon authors in order to sell the book at times screws the pooch.Read more ›
