Featured Book Review: Killing Your Boss

Killing Your Boss
Author : James DeSantis

Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…

His Father's Son

I am a fan of P.N. Elrod so I ordered this book and “Keeper of the King”.  But I found I didn’t enjoy reading the book - it seemed slow and sometimes dull.  Maybe because I am not a fan of the TV show, having only seen a few episodes.  Or maybe because I had to read the second book first as the first book has yet to get to me.  It could be that I just don’t have knowledge about the background, what type of vampires I am dealing with and no real information about the characters.  Richard is not like ANY other vampire in any of P.N. Elrod’s other vampire series, so I had no real idea when he was in danger or when he wasn’t.

But even taking that away, to be honest, I found parts of the book felt slow, with flashbacks that I didn’t think added to the story, and a surprise ending, a twisted ending, that I didn’t really believe in.  In other words, even if I was a fan of the TV show, I might found it hard to plow thru.

In the end I had to take away three points.  Please remember, that I am not a fan of Forever Night, because I don’t watch it daily, and fans of the show, or of Nigel Bennett, might enjoy the book more.  PLUS I have yet to read “Keeper of the King”. But I won’t suggest it for P.N. Elrod fans UNLESS they also like the show or have some knowledge of its setting.
