But maybe someday Lucy won’t yank that pigskin away, and Charlie Brown will have a chance to prove himself. And if you’ve already finished reading The Lost Castle, this will make a world more of sense to you.
Our first impressions of someone are often not our last impressions, especially when we dig a little deeper into their background. And that’s exactly what we get from Cole in this book. We see Frank with a different set of eyes. A much younger Frank. Yet still a Frank I wasn’t enamored with. Even when I learned everything I could about Frank’s background in this book, I still wasn’t a fan. But I could understand and empathize much more with the man.
Then near the end, when things are crazy and bleak as they often are in a Nick Cole book, and you aren’t sure who will live and who will die, Frank has a thought, and the floodgates open and my face is so wet that I have to stop reading, wiping off eyes and cheeks, and I realize that this is maybe the truest statement in The Lost Castle, something that would make this world a much better place, if only everyone would think about people the way Frank Romano does. And this makes every minute of reading worth it, and I never want to forget the feeling it sent through me, and the wish that everyone would think like Frank does about other people at that moment.
That said, this was a action packed novel. We get more of the story line with the group defending the Vineyard, Braddock and his mission both for and against Mr. Steele. A look into the mysterious castle. Also a backstory to Frank that was quite touching and motivational.
I've read each first book in what was to be the Apocalypse Weird series and since the beginning Nick Cole has had the strongest story, combined with well developed characters. Yes, it lives up to the name weird. Or I guess I should say Wyrd. So be prepared for strangeness in this wonderful installment. I look forward to many more.
One of the reviewers asked how many books till the end. Maybe it's changed but the Apocalypse Weird website seemed to indicate that there would be ten volumes.
This is by far the best of the Wyrd series to date. Holiday grows up and gets the approval he's seeking from Frank, who is so much more than a lounge singer who can cook a mean steak. And the scenes, written so well, that I was right there bashing zombies with the rest of the castle residents. And hanging on to truck for dear life. Nick Cole does here in this book what he does best: imagery. I swear I can smell the burning flesh of the zombies... and the damn eucalyptus trees. I think my eyes are watering. Maybe its allergies. Maybe its for Marie. Or maybe even a tear for Braddock.
At the beginning I thought Cory would have a bigger part in the book, and after a few chapters I was wondering if he would even have a small part... but in the end Batman is just as stoic and strong as ever.
Things don't always go the way you want them to (it's a freaking apocalypse, after all), but it's easy to get invested in all the characters. The multiple story lines are awesome, and we get a good dose of character development back story, along with current events. Quite well done.
Only downside is having to wait for the next one(s).
Yeah, that's a subtle hint for the author.
Nick should charge more - his work is worth it.
The author's style has improved to the point of fine polishing and smooth silk. The first book on Nick Cole's that I read was Soda Pop Soldier. While I loved it dearly, the marks of a very young author were present in a lot of the writing. This was refined in some of his subsequent works. In Lost Castle, his writing style has become fluid and remarkable, truly growing into his voice as an author. If this guy wrote a grocery list on a bar napkin, I would preorder it.
Certainly don't go into this book looking for full resolution of the story. Rather, look to it for resolution of the past, and an exciting path forward into the future of this franchise. May it be long and fruitful, because I'm enjoying it.
