The author does a wonderful job of giving us real life characters that you can relate to. I liked the small town setting of Cedar Falls, Iowa. Thee main character, Tad McGreevy has powers, several, one of which allows him to see whether a person is good or bad. This could be a blessing or a curse. A curse for him with the continuous night mares. He lives the crimes of the people he has visions of. It's hard to imagine what that would be like. The author gives you a terrifying ride, the ride of your lifetime. The trilogy consists of THE COLOR OF EVIL< RED IS FOR RAGE< KHAKI KILLER. The author gives the reader so much, a bit of mystery, thrills, unbelievable powers and great characters. I did find a bit of repitition which to me, I just wanted to get on with the meat of what was going on. I, myself, felt this was more for the adult audience.. I liked the similarities to John Wayne Gacy in the first book. Was this possibly a take off of Gacy, aka, Pogo the Clown, the Clown Killer? I liked using the clown since who would think of a clown as being evil? Takes you by surprise. I also liked the way the author used colors to represent the evil. Like with the clown, the color Tad saw was a greenish gray, the ultimate worst color. In the other two books, we have RED and KHAKI.
This will take you for a ride that you won't soon forget. You may even have those nightmares yourself. If you do read, read during the day, have someone in the house with you and lock your doors. If someone knocks and you take a peak through the curtains, Pogo may be standing there. DON"T OPEN THE DOOR! I was about to give up on this series during the first part, but once it grabs you, it grabs you and there is no turning back. Just when you think the nightmares have stopped, they begin again. You get the feel you have it figured out and as you turn the page, you are totally taken aback. You're wrong! You only know that danger lurks, evil lurks and it is lurking in the entire town. It's right in front of you but you don't see it. The suspense is building and you are getting closer to the edge of your chair. I loved the way the author left you hanging with some questions to be answered, perhaps leading into the next book of the series
There are three books in this set and each one delivers the same amount of thrills and chills, however, each are also distinctly different in various ways, even though a common theme and storyline run throughout. The main idea, that Tad McGreevy can see colors around people, auras if you will, that allow him to determine what type of person they are, I found to be very unique. I was almost just as horrified as he was each time he saw someone with the dreaded gray-green color surrounding them.
Yes, there are unexpected twists and turns you won't see coming. And yes, I definitely recommend this set to anyone who enjoys good, old-fashioned horror. And by that I mean, back in the golden age of horror, when Dean Koontz was writing as Leigh Nichols, and Stephen King was just getting started, along with the likes of Ramsey Campbell, Doug Clegg and Clive Barker. If you are nostalgic for some no-holds-barred, white-knuckle ride, keep-the-lights-on horror novels, then rejoice with this set, because you have three that you'll want to read one right after the other. And keep an eye on this author, because I can tell she'll have many more thrills to bring us in the future.
**I received The Color of Evil Boxed Set from the author at Premier Virtual Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book**
I enjoyed revisiting Connie's books! I was right back in again and as frightened and horrified as if I had never read the books before. Connie is a master storyteller and creates characters that grab on and hold you throughout the telling of the story.
The opportunity to read all the books without awaiting the next installment of the story was a huge plus! Read them in a well-lit room!
