Featured Book Review: Killing Your Boss
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…
The Nightwalker - Thomas Tessier Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
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.
