Esmé Snyders is an occult-crime investigator. She is called in to examine scenes brutality painted on the world using the blood of innocents.
She knows someone is inflicting pain and mutilating the bodies of their victims for power, but she doesn’t understand the scope of what she’s up against. She doesn’t understand that she has been targeted by the man who is using muti to become a god on Earth.
Esmé is attacked by unseen…things in her own home, but she doesn’t let that scare her away from hunting down the truth.
Her love life gets in the way of her handling things, but it doesn’t stop her from finding the answers she’s looking for.
Monique Snyman knows how to get her hands bloody, and she has no qualms finger painting her readers’ brains with her dark visions. She pulls no punches, and I love and respect her for that. After all, that’s what the horror genre is all about.
Muti Nation was a fun read, and I enjoyed it, but there were a couple things that bugged me. The main character, Esmé was referred to as an “expert” multiple times, but I didn’t feel she did any real “experting” in the book. She seems somewhat knowledgeable and capable, but that’s about all.
There were sections of the book that were nothing but news reports with social media comments and victim interviews. I personally didn’t care for them, since they weren’t directly connected to the actual story as far as something the characters were doing. The characters didn’t sit down and read the reports or anything. So, for me, it was jarring. But, if you’re going to do something like that in a book, it was done well. I consider this a personal preference issue, since others might not mind it at all.
I give this book: 4 of 5 Stars
Fans of paranormal, supernatural, thriller and suspense novels will love this novel, but even those who usually do not dive into such novels will be taken in by Monique Snyman's sharp and edgy writing, as well as her quick-tongued protagonist and relate-able characters. Adding to the appeal of this work is its setting on the continent of Africa (again, specifically South Africa) which, regrettably (and despite the day and age), there do not seem to be very many mainstream novels set in these days. I look forward to Ms Snyman's future work.
Esme is an Occult Crime expert, she investigates "muti murders" in Pretoria, South Africa. She starts a case and it escalates to more dead than she could have imagined. She realizes she is up against pure evil. To find the murder victims so savagely mutilated is disturbing, but she will put herself in danger if that is what it takes to find out what is happening and catch this horrible murderer.
I loved the attention to detail, the references to witch doctors, and all that it involves. I also enjoyed learning more about South Africa and its culture (although the story is fiction), the details about Africa are accurate.
Esme is very likable, she takes her job seriously and she is willing to do anything to solve crime. The plot is original, compelling and intense at times. I could not put it down. I was hooked from the beginning, and drawn in (to the story) quickly. Overall I found Muti Nation very enjoyable and highly recommend this great read.
