Looking forward to more Finn McCoy
on July 28, 2014
Missing people, Fey, Demons, and a small town under siege. All the ingredients for an engaging story. However...
Finn McCoy is a paranormal handler. He doesn't investigate, he "handles" the problems caused by the paranormal. He can see and converse with ghost, demons and other paranormal entities. Finn is called on for help by the sheriff of his hometown of Shallow Springs, VA. People are missing or turning up dead, and the numbers are increasing. Here's where the however comes in. I really hate reading stories out of order. The author would keep referencing a back story about Finn and his girlfriend Amanda without expanding on the information. This is a key factor if you want a book to be a stand alone read. I actually stopped reading this book to check on the authors previous work. And there it was, The Grass Monkey and Other Dark Tales by Scott Langrel. I downloaded it and got the back story of Finn and Amanda. I also came to some conclusions about the book, Homecoming. Although this book maybe a homecoming of sorts for Finn McCoy, it is actually the conclusion to Cynthie's story which was also introduced in The Grass Monkey.
I do recommend this book, as I found Finn McCoy to be a highly entertaining character. I would, however, suggest reading The Grass Monkey first (free on Amazon and B&N) as it will give you the information to make the book even more enjoyable. I will be reading more Finn McCoy in the near future.
