5.0 out of 5 stars Better by far than I expected!!!, August 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Raven's Child (Paperback)
I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. I had read Sniegoski before and I am a huge fan of Brown's "Hopeless, Maine" series. I read the blurb and thought that perhaps it would be another alien attack story. It is.............and it isn't. I won't do spoilers but this almost raises the alien attack story to the stature of mythology. It's a much more complex story that I am used to, and the characters, while somewhat basic are drawn well enough to make them interesting and to make you care for them. The artwork is wonderful!!! I highly recommend this book as a great addition to your graphic novel collection. An excellent story and great art.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent second volume in the Wicked Souls Saga., June 7, 2015

A worthy successor to the Wicked Souls Saga. Well plotted and a joy to read. As with the first one, I don't always agree with the theology but this is a great "take" on the war in Heaven. I definitely recommend it!!!

A wonderful first effort from someone who will undoubtedly write many more good stories. I am not usually a "romance" fan, but this novelette was a joy to read. Good characters, a gripping story and a hopeful and uplifting message as well. Highly recommended reading!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging take on the war between good and evil, April 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wicked Souls (Paperback)
First, I am a true Agnostic. I have no idea what comes after death or whether there is a Heaven or Hell. With that in mind, I enjoy other takes on the afterlife, including Sartre's bleak dead following the living around. This novel is a very interesting take on Heaven, Hell and the war between good and evil. I found it easy to read and very engaging. This is a highly recommended novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars True horror with no blood, gore or sex, April 12, 2015
If you want today's typical horror, don't read this one. Today's horror is so overblown with blood, gore, spewing entrails, heads lopped off, graphic sex scenes that you miss the actual horror of the situation. Shirley Jackson didn't write that kind of horror. Hers is the sweet, seemingly innocent horror that suddenly punches you in the stomach, not with blood or sex but with the realization that something really really scary has just happened, even if we don't know what the hell is was. This is her best novel and, in my opinion, the only absolutely perfect haunted house story ever written. If you want to be disgusted, keep reading King, Straub and the rest of the modern writers. They can be good, but the blood and gore is always close at hand. If you want true fear, read this novel.
