Anyway, Eighth Note is a bit different from Roam as it slides a bit more into the horror genre then being a straight-up PNR. And when I say horror, I mean it’s creepy; think The Grudge style not Texas Chainsaw. This is the kind of horror that’s totally up my alley. In Eighth Note we are introduced to a world of binaural beats, sound waves, entrainment of brainwaves, frequency, possession, and the paranormal. Basically we learn how certain sounds, or frequencies, when overlapped, can influence the brain thus making us open and susceptible to some freaky shizzzz i.e., demonic possession and the like. Ummm yeah - creeeeepy.
It’s been a while since I’ve read any horror but I wasn’t really skeptical. I knew from reading Kimberly Stedronsky’s previous works that she was a super-de-duper talented author. And if all else failed and I didn’t like the story, then I knew I would have applauded her writing skills in the very least. Well, I won’t keep you in suspense and longer. After the first 10 pages I was hooked, and finished the book in 1 day! It was that awesome!!! I love Eva Reed even more now then I did in the Roam series. And I just adore Cole Mathison. Cole didn’t have a very huge part in the Roam series so it was nice to see his character really take shape and come to life. The banter between the two characters (Eva and Cole) had me laughing out loud so may times that I received the funny looks and curious glances from both kids and husband. The comic relief was a welcomed reprieve after reading some of the disturbing events that take place in the book. Yep, I was grateful for that. Otherwise I would have been sleeping with the lights on, and then, being too afraid to open my shower curtain the next morning.
Honestly I can’t say there was anything that I didn’t like about Eighth Note. The cover art is brilliant, the writing top notch, the premise unique, witty, and captivating. There was resolution in the end but enough of an opening to further continue the Fire Ballad series.
So if your a fan of movies like The Grudge, and Constantine. Love heroines that kick demon arse, spout out snarky retorts, and have a bit of fiery passion then you must read Eighth Note! I promise you will love it.
Kim has done an amazing job right off the bat with giving a quick run down of Eva's life, which is helpful for anyone not having read the 'Roam' series. (I advise reading the entire series as it gives you a detailed background on all the characters and you'll have time to fall in love with them- well, MOST of them, too).
This story is unique in the sense relating to Eva and her magical powers. I haven't read a book that comes close to the plot of "Eighth Note." There are so many spine-chilling moments in the book and with Kim's descriptive writing, I could visually see everything she was laying out there for the reader. It has a lot of macabre, horrifying events that take place and chilled me to the bone more than once, but I read on and on! (Quite a few 'Holy Sh*t' moments).
Eva helps Cole out with a job- a murder mystery- that only these two could possibly solve, due to them being immortals. The evil and torturing moments Eva endures is terrifying at best. It's a well-rounded story that, even amongst all the scary-creep-factor going on, still has some 'hot/lust' scenes with sarcastic wit tossed in the mix.
There is so much that goes on in "Eighth Note" and I do not want to spoil anything but I assure you, it is the perfect read for getting into Halloween!
