Histories of the Void Garden: Pyre of Dreams. #bookreview

POD+New+Mockup

 

 

Have you ever wondered why some people never age? Did you ever think that leeches are the key to staying young and healthy?  I’m so glad that this is a work of fiction because I’m not sure if getting close to a leech is worth eternal youth. There are a few gory scenes and some cursing so this book is probably more appropriate for those who are sixteen and up.

The book begins with David and his daughter, Stephanie, attending an event in which the president and several other political officials are assassinated. Within a day or so, David becomes a suspect. He and Stephanie go on the run with the assistance of West, Charlene and Stanwick. West and Stanwick know more than they tell anyone until almost the end of the book.

 

The tone of the book reminded me a little bit of the show, “The Strain.” There are conspiracy theories and people whose bodies are evolving into something not quite human.

I thought that the pace of the book was good. There were a lot of details but I didn’t feel overwhelmed with information.

The characters were well-written. My favorite characters were Stanwick and Stephanie. Stanwick is like a ninja superhero or maybe the anti-hero. Either way, she is a tough lady. Stephanie has so much curiosity and energy. She also loves “Les Miserables” – probably more than most people.

I don’t usually read books in a series but I did enjoy this book enough to want to read the next one in the series. The follow up,”Princess of the Infinite,” will be out later this month.  I think that if you like science fiction with a few conspiracy theories then you will like this book.

 

You can find this book here or on Amazon.
