Although this book wasnt what I anticipated and wasnt thought through long enough, I enjoyed most of the book and did get teary eyed at 2 particular parts.
Cant say I would reccommend this it unless like me you are in between books .... I needed something to read while waiting for the next book in my series (dark erotica 😆) and saw this book and thought why not try a horror book ...
This writer has potential
There are a few places throughout the book where the wrong characters names are used leaving the reader confused and wondering if the book had an editor.
Also, I felt like some things in the plot were too juvenile to swallow. For example - according to the book, if you tape a page from a dirty magazine to a broom handle, it can be used to ward off angels. Also, angels can't enter a pub because they're EEEEEVIL. (WHAT!?? LOL) If it weren't for excessive foul language, the sheer number of gross over-simplifications about "good" vs "evil" would make me think the book was trying to convert 13 year olds into Christianity.
It felt like a huge let down for something that had a lot of potential.
I mean, angels that can't be touched by porno mags? Not to mention their hyper anglicized appearances; flowing golden hair and cyan blue eyes? It was like the second half of the book was written by a middle schooler in the deep south who happened to find an unattended laptop. A little harsh maybe, but overall a disappointment I spent five dollars and a few hours on that I can't get back. Would not recommend.
I was impressed from the start. I love the reference to the master of horror, Stephen King. I liked the characters and got immersed in the book fast. I am one of those people that has to know what is going to happen next, so I hate when most books end. I always have questions left and no one to ask them about. The thing that really, really impressed me about this book was the bonus scenes at the end. It was awesome!!
Now, I have read some of the not so nice reviews of this book. I don't understand what they didn't like. Typically I read romance/erotica, so most people wouldn't think I would like horror too. Maybe the wrong audience? I don't know, but this book is a great read and it makes you think long after you are done reading the book.
I am not going to give you a book report of the book I just read. Plus I know I would spoil something. What I can tell you is that the writing is very good and the storyline(s) are easy to follow. Yes, more than one storyline, but Wright pulls it off brilliantly. I could picture the book in my head like a movie and the cutscenes were just where they needed to be.
Note to Mr. Wright: What you revealed as the villain. I just LOVED that. Bravo Mr. Wright, Bravo!!

Despite this I found it fairly gripping and reasonably enjoyable. The plot is about a 50/50 split between the Winchester bits of Shaun of the Dead and The Mist by Steven King. If you're looking for something that you can read on the plane or by the pool without too much concentration, this might be for you.
