A pretty basic thriller that struggled with pacing at times and unfortunately was a little clichéd and bland for me. I was hoping for a more dastardly killer and bigger reveals. It ended up just ok.
Strangely enough the bonus story in the paperback version “Gloop!” was really good. While the first story was a bit elementary, the second showed much promise and was well thought out and realized in a short format. Well done.
*Please note that I purchased the e-book version of this one prior to receiving the paperback copy and it does not contain the bonus short story which is too bad because it is clearly the star of this one. 2 Stars for “The Damnation Game” and 3.5 Stars for “Gloop!”.
I enjoyed this one. It was short, to the point, and packed a punch.
We have a serial killer who's targeting priests due to his past abuse by the clergy. A woman and her husband happen to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, and things go from there. When things look bleakest, things take a turn for the supernatural.
Overall a strong piece of fiction with well developed characters, especially for a shorter work.
I recommend this for any fans of supernatural thrillers. I'll be checking out more of Mr. David Brian's work soon.
As the book description says, this book is an ‘unsettling slice of darkness’. The story does indeed send a shiver down one’s spine. A sinister presence is felt both by the characters and the reader throughout the course of the story. I was not very satisfied with the opening of the story but I’m glad I decided to read on. There are certain conversations which, I felt, didn’t quite fit in. Also, the characters didn’t appeal to me. But these factors aren’t essential when this book is concerned because it tells a frightening story and tells it well. The language is good and the suspense is maintained perfectly. Style of writing is quite important in thrillers and fantasies because it is what affects the reader’s experience. A brilliantly written thriller will force one to turn back and check for some mysterious creature lurking there. The thrill will not be felt by the reader if the writing is sketchy and drab. David Brian has done a great job of penning a story that scares even after it ends. There are many lovers of the fantasy genre and I’d recommend this book to all of them. The only reason why I’m not giving five stars is the presence of certain unnecessary conversations and my disappointment with the opening as I’ve mentioned before. Otherwise it’s a good read!
This is a short read, not very time consuming and well worth every minute. There is certainly material here that could have made for a larger story. I did, howerver, find myself literally engaged hoping that Kate would do, or not do something, or hoping for someone to help at certain points. Very fun for this to happen in a short story/novella/novelette. There is plenty of suspense, twist, and a surprise ending that kept me reading.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a new author to read that you may not be familiar with. I will be reading more from David Brian in the future.
