As the plot thickens (and by this I mean it just keeps getting more sick and twisted) the entire town of Prominence falls under an unholy influence that threatens to tear the community to pieces. I was open-mouthed and gasping as the townfolk went on their respective wicked warpaths. I haven't seen such lunatic (and guiltily riveting) rampages since, well, ever.
Over all, The Angel Alejandro has everything I like in a good book and I rate it a 5 full stars based on plot (compelling), pacing and execution (both top-notch) lifelike characters (the kind you can really sink your teeth into and care about) and the kind of atmosphere that comes to life and fully pulls you into an intriguing new world. Easily one of my all-time favorites and I can see myself returning to it again and again. Recommended for anyone looking for an epic tale of good versus evil with a unique brand of romance and more than a little screaming mad terror along the way.
Fans of Stephen King will love Alistair Cross, and The Angel Alejandro is the perfect place to start.
When a handsome and mysterious stranger saves Madison O’Riley from a fatal fall, little does she realise that her life and that of the inhabitants of the town of Prominence will soon descend into the depths of the Twilight Zone. It is not long before Madison and others start to realise that the amnesiac who calls himself Alejandro, has powers which defy comprehension…
When the strange and compelling Gremory Jones and his associates arrive in town the book gets increasingly darker as Gremory’s intent becomes clear as he begins to ensnare the townspeople in his machinations. Add to the mix a psychic, a local priest, and the new chief of police, who is a recovering alcoholic, and the scene is set for a series of dastardly, dark and depraved scenes. The town succumbs to chaos and carnage, with its inhabitants merely collateral damage in a battle between good and evil. Rest assured though the read also contains plenty of scenes of humour and romance giving relief from the ensuing horror!
I just LOVED this thoroughly gripping and entertaining read and I was on pins waiting to discover if Alejandro would remember his true nature and protect himself, the town and the woman he is growing to love before it is too late.
The author’s characterisations are brutally honest, insightful and full of dark humour as he explores the human condition, lifting the lid on the private desires and personal hang-ups of the characters. The romance between Madison and Alejandro is a sweet one and due to Alejando’s innocent disposition there are plenty of scenes where the author exploits this for comedic value. The new Police Chief Nick Grayson, who has come to Prominence to make a new start and to clean up his act, certainly has his work cut out with the temptations and increasing body count that the town throws at him from day one of his arrival! I enjoyed the pivotal part he plays in the emerging plot.
If you are already familiar with his author and/or you enjoy the work of Steven King and the cinematic genius of David Lynch you will savour this read as much as I did. Highly recommended! Please note that a copy of this book was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair ad honest review.
