Editorial Reviews

Review

"The characters are well-drawn and we sympathize with them as their loyalties are torn between two worlds. Because the story spans such a great deal of time and introduces so many characters from different generations I did at times forget the genealogy, but the threat to the characters was always high. Often the effects of the curse were gruesomely described. I would recommend The Black Act to readers who enjoy epic fantasy. I'm looking forward to the next book from this author."

-Kate Jonez, author of Candy House and Ceremony of Flies


"Louise Bohmer has created a powerful story, set in a captivating world with a host of compelling characters. The author meshes elements of fantasy and horror with an ease that is inspirational. The Black Act is a thoroughly enriching read."

-Rio Youers, author of Mama Fish, Everdead, and End Times


"The Black Act is very, very good! It sort of walks a literary tightrope between Octavia Butler and Orson Scott Card.... I find high fantasy of any kind difficult to keep my attention over the long haul, and once a book starts getting into high magicks my eyes usually start glazing over, but this is doing an admirable job of keeping me fixed on it."

-Karen Koehler, author of the Mrs. McGillicuddy series

"The Black Act is a beautiful tale, beautifully written. Louise Bohmer places her pot squarely on the pile and begins cooking immediately. The aromas in her kitchen are familiar--a hint of J.R.R. Tolkien, a trace of Geoge R.R. Martin, and a whiff of Ursula K. LeGuin--ah, but when you taste this delicious stew, you'll find a fresh recipe with plenty of meat and potatoes. There's a new Chef in town, and I'll be the first in line for seconds!"

-Michael Knost, editor of Writers Workshop of Horror

Louise Bohmer is clearly an author who has taken the time to plan out the details of the fantasy world in the Witch Twins Saga in her mind. While the author is an expert of her world, the reader may not immediately be. While the book does not just throw the reader in the middle of the action without some sort of explanation of the magical world Claire and Anna live in, it does not detail every aspect of the society. I got a vague idea of some sorts of going-ons, but to really get an idea of what was happening, I had to continue reading. The world slowly opened up to me and it became easier to learn individual's roles and homelands and histories as the book went on, but they were not the clearest things to understand, especially in the beginning. I feel like more would be explained by reading the second book as well and maybe also rereading the first book.

That being said, the characters are great, especially Claire and Anna, twin sisters. They interact just how sisters do, fighting and arguing, wanting their privacy from one another, but caring for each other at the same time. Their relationship is very believable and realistic. The bond between them is strong and the reader can attach to it and relate to it instantly.

The plot is also good. It's got drama, it's got twists, and it's got romance - all things all readers want and love. It contains your typical star-crossed lovers plot, but with an interesting twist: they're not so star-crossed after all.

The piece is pretty short for it to be called a book by itself. It ends with a cliffhanger, but has no real resolution. The second book should immediately follow, and I believe the two would work best shoved into one piece to create something that is more the length of a typical book.

*A Note for the author- it's started, not starting. You make that mistake dozens of times in both books so far. Example Erik started to do something, not Erik starting to do something. Sorry that just irks me...
