Fellow author, Cynthia Fridsma has started her own series of novels. Take a look at my reviews below to see if you'd also enjoy them, though I must mention that her works have a much more mature tone than my own, and may be more suitable for adult horror fans than for children:
Hotel of Death: The Chosen One
"Hotel of Death: The Chosen One" is an interesting read, starting with a writer and his inner fight between his profession and his love for his publisher's wife.
The story quickly moves on from these every day activities into a fight between the heroic "Nightbirds" and the villainous hordes of the "Reaper".
How are these two threads linked? You'll have to read it to find out, but suffice to say, you won't see it coming!
The characters are fully fleshed out and most of them have a chance to develop over the course of the story.
The locations are brought to life through some very immersive descriptions.
Even the timeline is accurate, from the events of the American Civil War through to the modern day.
I hadn't really read thriller stories before, but this is a brilliant introduction to the genre. I hope the next entry in the series will be just as exciting to read!
Hotel of Death: The Black Widow
We begin the story at the Boston Marathon, where two of our heroes stand at the finishing line.
Little do they know of the horror that will strike just as the runners begin to cross the line.
As the regular human law enforcement agencies get to work, Sybil and her team at Nightbird intervene when one of their own is killed by a new foe; the Black Widow!
How is she linked with the attack? Will the bombers be brought to justice? And what are the Black Widow's true motives? You'll have to read the story to find out!
The story is fast paced and the action is well described. Zombies, werewolves and even time travel feature in this intriguing tale of two teams of vampires locked in a bitter struggle, and the fate of the living world hangs in the balance!
While the writing could benefit from a subtle re-draft, the core narrative shines through.
I can't wait for the next story in the series!
