A gripping tale, with words so elegantly placed, it will hold your attention from start to finish. This author has a certain way of writing her books - like a perfectly conducted masterpiece preformed by an astonishing orchestra. The elite of the elite. It's emotionally moving, flowed so eloquently, and each sentence painted such a picture, it's as if you stepped right into the book.
This is the second book I have read by this author. She has yet to disappoint me. Absolutely wonderful book.
Writing historical fiction in any form takes work. Writing historical fiction and incorporating the paranormal is even more work. Lucille Moncrief does a great job with her second volume in this story. Even though this is the second volume in the series, it reads as a stand alone. The entire Nefarious series explores human empathy and temptation. This volume shares the back story of one of the main characters during the Battle of the Somme during WWI. Talcott Henderson and his companions are stuck in a bunker during the heavy bombing of the battle, but they aren't the only ones. Moncrief's stream of conscious writing creates a vivid picture of how horrible war is on the people fighting. I felt like I was in the bunker next to these guys either playing cards with them or just observing as a fly on the wall. She did a good job weaving historical details throughout the story instead of relying on major info dumps. It was worth the read as it is short but packed with a lot of power and insight.
I was gifted a copy of this title by the author and voluntarily both, read and reviewed it of my own free will.
