The Nightwalker Horror Book Review
Featured Book Review: Darkbound
Darkbound is an amazing book. Michaelbrent Collings outdid himself with this book. It is not at all what I thought it would be. I took three nights to finish this book because I stayed up way past my bedtime. Darkbound was so suspenseful that I just kept on reading to…

I really appreciated Tessier’s new and refreshing approach to the werewolf mythology. While I don’t think all the historical elements came together as cohesively as they should have, I had a good time reading this. I would have preferred to not even know what the book was about since the werewolf idea doesn’t come into play for quite a while into the story.
Tessier’s technical and creative writing is excellent, but like many of his other books, his tempo is completely off. Certain scenes are nicely slow and atmospheric and then, without warning, events happen very quickly, leaving out what I feel are crucial details, mood, and tone. Then things abruptly slow back down before spastically speeding up again. It almost felt like Tessier writes every day and then takes a few weeks off and can’t quite get back into the groove of the story.
My only other issue is the slightly unsatisfying ending. Tessier managed to pull everything together but I think it felt too short and rushed. Regardless, I enjoy his writing and ever since reading his amazing book, Finishing Touches, I’ll always pick up his work.
