Like all the books in the series, this one is different and has its own pacing, plot, and craziness. With Ochse's military background, and based on his writing strengths, it's no surprise that the military plays a big role in Red Palm. There are some scenes here that may bother the squeamish, but whoever said that an apocalyptic event would be easy?
This series continues to ramp up the excitement, and adding a heavy-hitter the likes of Weston Ochse just confirms that Apocalypse Weird is going places.
The problems I found with the story are as follows:
1) I didn't find a single character that I could connect with. Not once did I feel for a character when a loved one died or went missing. Also, none of the characters had any sort of backstory, so the novel felt incomplete.
2) I found several errors, including misspellings, words missing and punctuation mistakes galore. This was very disappointing, especially because I didn't come across these issues in previous AW works.
If you are a fan of Weston Ochse or Apocalypse Weird, pick this book up and give it a read. It does have some great moments and is darker than any of the other AW books, which is a nice palette cleanser.
This novel is probably the weirdest of the Weird Apocalypse novels thus far. The actual onset of the Apocalypse doesn't really seem any stranger than anything else in the story. As in the other books, mists can transport characters between worlds. One of the worlds in Red Palm is populated by creatures such as chupacabras, sasquatch, kraken, mastadons, and giant flesh-eating worms.
A boogeyman-like character called the Black Bishop snatches children and molds them to do his bidding. Some think the Black Bishop is a mythical character from a fairy tale, but Blane and his associates in the League of the Red Palm know better. The good guys use what appear to be black magic techniques – blood sorcery and the creation and deployment of zombies – in their struggle against the Black Bishop and his followers. Then an even more dangerous sorcerer emerges, in an apparent alliance with the Black Bishop. The Rook and his followers recruit cutters (persons who self-harm by cutting their own skin) to help generate enormous amounts of power. Will the League of the Red Palm be able to stop them?
Red Palm is a great addition to the Weird Apocalpyse collection. The characters are compelling, and I can't wait to see what happens next!
I received the book in exchange for an honest review.
