I give this book 4 1/2 stars only because I found myself asking a couple of questions about some parts, and the storyline just did not seem to fit for me.
The first part of the book had me from the get-go I literally cringed with the details of torture that the young women went through.
Desolace starts off as a mystery. where there is a serial killer loose in Ohio and the police do not know who he is. The serial killer named George kidnaps, tortures and eventually kills the young women. One night two young girls Kate and Julie play with a quija board and that is when they conjure one of the victims. With the ghost's help the girls find out who the killer is, and in the process he founds out about one of them. When Julie is taken, Katie hopes to find her before it is too late. George and Katie both lerarn about an alternate dimension, called Desolace, and are working for opposite sides. One being good, other being evil. Katie is on a quest to fight the darkness and had to find others on Earth to help her. While George is helping the darkness and has to being slaves to a factory. Who will succeed in their quest?
The parts that got me questioning are as followed:
Katie's mom seems very very troubled with the information about the killings. She is very worried about Katie which is understandable. She passes out about the news she hears on the T.V. Why? Is it because it is close to home? Does she know the victim? I found that trouble since there was no explantion.
Katie enters in another realm and seems to be gone for hours and her mom doesn't notice? Weird.
I felt as though the author was trying to combine two different genres one being a murder mystery and another being fantasy. Two different storylines trying to come together too quickly was hard for me to believe. Maybe if he slowly but not too slowly introduced Desolace into the first storyline it could have worked.
Where the books ends, definitely makes me want to read book 2. Desolace is for a more mature audience in my opinion.
Character development with relationships, past to present transitions, friendships (Julie/Katie) and spirit (ghost) appearances are all well developed. Some authors struggle with that character creation-but really, check out George, Lucian's got characters down! Lucian captivates his audiences with the wild, unexpected spins and you truly are left wondering what's going on in Misty Hollows and whose next in George's list. Come along for a spook-filled, horror adventure to learn what is going on, where Julie could be, and enjoy a true horror story-like horror was meant to be written-in detail!!
