Today, I’m reviewing Rogue Mountains, by Joshua Tarquinio, a novel set in the small town surrounded by mountains, where demonic creatures lurk. Twenty years since mysterious events of Pittsburgh, see these hellish abominations growing in number and attacking whoever dares to step foot in their territory.
There were a lot of characters in this book and it was sometimes a chore to remember who was who. Our main figures are Jessica (a seductive local), Del Balentine (professional monster hunter), Jeremy (a young musician), Ariana (a future monster hunter), and lastly Mara (a supernatural being that dwells on Witch Mountain.)
All of these characters possess unique skills that serve them in this land of monsters, but it is their sense of strength and determination to be rid of these hellish creatures that binds them as friends and allies.
Tarquinio paints a vivid picture of how the locals have become accustomed to such creatures. Most townsfolk act in a casual manner, as though their circumstances were a normal, everyday thing to experience. We see the town’s meagre population dwindle as they strive to evolve, to adapt to their dangerous new world. The tension hardly ever lets up and kept me reading, eager for more bloodshed.
Nymphs, witches, demons, and incredible monsters are just some of the dangers the townsfolk face. Overall, this made for an intriguing story that made good use of imagery, kept my attention, and took my imagination on a rollercoaster ride.
Rated 5 stars.
Recommended to lovers of urban fantasy and dystopian novels.
