There were two reasons I didn’t give this five stars, and they’re reasons that probably won’t bother anyone but me. First, there were a handful of editing misses—not many, but I noticed them so I have to mention them—but they were only the occasional typo, not grammar or punctuation issues. As far as grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and all the things that make the narrative flow, the book is spot-on and Fleming has writing skills that will only continue to get better with the books I hope he’s writing even now.
The second reason is that there was some odd instant attraction thing going on between two of the characters, and there was no reason for it. I wouldn’t go so far to say insta-love, but the two didn’t know each other at all, and within a short span were suddenly full of feelings for each other. It didn’t feel genuine because we, as readers, literally knew nothing about any of these people yet, and they knew even less about each other. They hadn’t even had time to experience any personality quirks, much less learn anything more substantial than each other’s first names.
That said, those things may or may not matter to anyone, and though they did give me pause, the rest of the book—plot and execution—was definitely a win. I would recommend it to the non-squeamish. The imagery is pretty solid.
AND . . . the end? Never ever EVER saw that coming. Excellent, Mr. Fleming. What a way to twist it up.
Great premier for Mathew R. Flemming
Overall, I liked the premise and a lot of the imagery. There are not a lot of books or movies that have actual creatures anymore, so I liked that I had a "monster" to fear. Matthew's writing style is clear and he is able to get his point across very easily. He's a very descriptive writer with a wild imagination that I believe will grow and take him far the more he writes.
Now for the bad.
I remind you that everyone's preferences are different and just because I may not like this particular aspect of the book, doesn't mean my word is the end all be all.
Most of these I find annoying simply because I am a writer as well in the horror genre.
This book isn't scary for me, but rarely a book is. The characters were easily forgettable and cliche, very 'horror stereotype characters, but I think that was somewhat the idea he was going for. The plot was easy to figure out pretty early on in the book, but once again, I'm a writer so thinking outside the box is something I try to do daily. The 'twist' could surprise everyone. It just didn't surprise me. The romance felt forced and was unnecessary, like he felt he needed it, just like Amber's character felt like she was just there to be the mean girl, but like I said before, he could have wanted the stereotypes that way.
My final conclusion of the book is that it isn't bad. It's a quick read, very straightforward, and you know what you're getting when you start. I think Matthew Fleming is a good writer who will get better the more comfortable he gets into his writing and begins to find his style more.
