This is the first time I’ve read a book within this genre. Undying Love is a book unlike any other that I’ve read. It is a murder and horror story that provides an excellent build up that hits you with an unexpected punch. The formatting alone will be a draw for many readers.
Undying Love was written in a very different style. Almost poetic while at the same time putting you into the mindset of the character. As the story gets more hectic, so too does the way you read the story. That would be my one not so great take away from this. The writing style, for me, was not the easiest to follow at times. That isn’t to say that it didn’t work for the story and other readers might love it more than I did. However, that is just my take as I was reading the story. As for the story itself, it is gripping and imaginative with little to slow it down. Even when the story is in a slower part, the suspense given by the foreshadowing is in the forefront.
Something is constantly brewing but that isn’t always obvious. Some of the action that is coming out flows so slowly that you’re caught off guard. Mason, in one example, is so set in his mind from the start that his role really had me unaware as I continued to read. The characters are painted in a broad swath that helps to let you as the reader feel them in short pieces before any major events spring forth. You might not like one character at one point but then come around to see later that your opinion has changed. This is helped with the complex relationships that the author has established prior to the novel with snippets of backstory. Once the horror comes out, you’re taken for a wild ride within the imaginative mind of terror and guilt that will leave you breathless. Nothing is quiet right or wrong and some of the events need to be read slowly, possibly twice, to get the full scope.
Overall, this is a great story with a unique style that will have readers’ hearts racing. It might be a tough read at times but worth the time.
4 out of 5!!!
