However, the fact that the three sisters are chosen by fate for something bigger, now, that is something out of the ordinary. Being a woman, a mother and the only provider of my family, I can greatly empathize to what these ladies are going through - at the same time, thinking that, there must be something greater that's meant for me as well. So, never stop hoping and searching for that elusive "there must be more than this Provincial life" magic that will change your outlook.
Reading Bad II the Bone would surely stimulate one's imagination, especially those who think that they are stuck to the daily grind they call life. I believe, based from personal experience, that fate and destiny is in one's hand, and all one has to do is find it. This is what the ladies of Bad II the Bone did - they sought their destiny, grabbed it with both hands, and held on to it for dear life.
A highly-recommended, fast-paced helluva ride for anyone interested in fantasy mixed with urban suave.
His lively descriptions really pull you into the story and it makes the book hard to put down. The action just never stops; all of the characters are constantly moving. I didn’t hit any slow spots that pulled me out of the reading. I enjoyed how sympathetic and relatable his characters were. I don’t want to give anything away!!! But his descriptions surrounding Voudun are hauntingly authentic and homegrown. It’s nothing like the pop culture caricatures of this culture that people are used to seeing. It also isn’t too often that we get 3 (COUNT ‘EM! 3) STRONG female characters who are just as much individuals as they are sisters. I am very excited to see what this author comes up with next!
When I come across material which depicts characters in my image, taking center stage, my interest is automatically perked. The reason being is the world is giving another example of the African diaspora; shattering the capsulate view, that we are all the same. “Bad II The Bone” accomplish this feat, in spades, introducing you to modern Jamaican and UK’s outlook, which is heavily steep in voodooism.
As an African American, I’ll have to admit, even I was set be back on my heels, figuring out the lingo, as the wording shifts from standard to slang. After the first few pages, I quickly adjust, and dove right into a hell of a story. The characters are likeable. Patra, being my favorite. The action scenes are graphic. And the flow of events are not predictable, in anyway. I dare not say anymore, and spoil a great story.
Every author’s first book has at least three to four areas that may need refining. Anton Marks, from my perspective, only has two.
When it comes to the actions scenes I want to see more. And once in play, explained them in crisp detail. A fine example is R.A. Salvatore. Read just one of his book and you’ll know exactly what I mean; especially his latest novels. Never just mention an event. [i.e. The Bank] In other words, show… don’t tell. And most importantly, do not lead up to a moment, and not go all the way in. [Ambush at the park]
Description = His use of words are effective; be it for scene, or character. If I were to see these people in real life, I would know them, instantly! However, excessive usage can sometimes hamper the pacing. Granted, certain scenes require that extra touch, but should be regulate to those settings. Anything beyond that may discourage some readers.
After what’s been mention, does this detract the potency of the story? Absolutely not! I will recommend this novel to anyone, who wants to see three bad females taking on odds, which will leave most men scarred for life, or dead. Good Job, Anton! My hat is off to you. I look forward to many tales in the near future.
Marks put it all out there. He shows the strength of these women in good and bad times. The action moves along and provides very vivid visualization for the mind as you read along.
