The only bad part was that it ended. An old romantic tragedy based on class differences of the old South in the antebellum period in New Orleans, leaves a mystery, legends, spirits and a beautiful home in ruins.
Fast forward to modern day where a Boston lawyer breaks his engagement and goes to New Orleans to by the home and restore it to its former glory. He meets the most interesting people in the process of restoring the home. In the process he begins to hear, see and dream things that happened 100 years ago. Can he solve the mystery, renew the house AND get the girl?
The characters are rich in creole tradition, the phrasing and behaviors are spot on for the area. Each character is believable and charming. An excellent read
I very rarely read nonfiction but stories I had heard of the Code Talkers were so intriguing that I really wanted to read this book. The book was incredibly interesting as Mr. Nez shared not only his story of being a code talker but also of his upbringing, how his Navajo traditions and beliefs often conflicted with his military duties.
This is a great story filled with pride, sadness and compassion. A wonderful memoir rich in tradition and history.
Having read the previous 2 installments of this tale, I was eagerly awaiting the release of the final chapter. I was not disappointed. I am also sad to see the story end. A witch and a vampire in a forbidden relationship on a quest, their special children, the witches, vampires and demons who object to their relationship and finally, a crazy vampire son out to terrorize his sire.
It's really a young adult book but those are my guilty pleasure. I was really disappointed when the tale finally came to an end.
This was a little different than I expected. The pace is a little bit up and down, sometimes fully captivating, others bordering on boring. Overall I enjoyed it.
One of the best Koontz books in a while. Captivating from the beginning, interesting and unique characters, wrapped in a good story.
The story kicks off with a bang and doesn't stop until the end, and I see potential for a sequel. A husband and wife social worker team take their infant son and 6 troubled teens who are in their care for a final camping trip on a secluded island. When a campfire ghost story starts to become reality, the twists and turns are unexpected.
I really loved this book. It is a great story, not gory for those who avoid King for that reason. A retired detective is taunted by the murderer who got away. In the process he meets a woman who brings new hope to his life.
One of my favorite things about this book is the way the main character interact with each other. Sometimes it makes you smile, other times it makes you want to cry. The characters of Bill, Janie, Jerome and Holly all interact so well and interestingly.
Loved the book.
But this book dies a slow painful death from the very beginning. Don't waste you time or credits.
I found this book hard to follow due to the number of subplots. It was constantly jumping from one scene to another, many of which either had such a thin connection or the connection was so deep in the book that it was irrelevant.
The book also ended suddenly without resolution, so it you really get into it, you have to continue to buy the rest of the series to get to the answers.
Less a zombie book than one would expect. The plot focuses more around a fictional area of the government focused on bringing down terrorists who are trying to bring the zombie creating plague down upon the world.
Not your average zombie tale, less ravaging of humans than normal. More the tale of a zombie baby rescued by a family and kept hidden. One day, he realizes that he is not the only one. Then Stony grows up to become a zombie activist.
