Not for me. Should appeal more to horror, mystery/thriller and grimdark fans.
Dead Things (Eric Carter #1) - Stephen Blackmoore

I'm abandoning this one.

 

The writing and worldbuilding are very good.

 

The story and the main character are just not for me at this time.  Too dark.

Reading progress: 18%.
Dead Things (Eric Carter #1) - Stephen Blackmoore

Well, so far, this is well written with potentially interesting worldbuilding.  Anyone else read this seris?

 

It's rather grim and violent with a main character who says he's done stuff like bleeding out black Rams as sacrifices, lines of cocaine, and sees detailed murders.

 

I may switch, but nothing on the shelf called for Bookshelf BINGO was really grabbing me.

 

I sympathize with Eric Carter based on what his life seems to be, but I don't like him yet and am not invested in his story.  I like finding a new series and I like the writing style--that's why on the fence about DNF or continue.

 

It is making me want to go buy some Johnny Walker Black (no liquor sales here on Sundays though).  I really don't need any because well stocked with bourbon for Derby ... just not Johnny Walker Black.

 

I will DNF if the book starts doing detailed animal sacrifice (at least the main character says it's too extreme for him to nail a dead cat to the window to ward off the haunts -- if that changes and any pets are harmed, I'm out).

Just starting for Bookshelf BINGO
Dead Things (Eric Carter #1) - Stephen Blackmoore

Today's call is shelved as Necromanvers.

 

New to me author and first in series.  Some reviewers say remniscient of Harry Dresden (I can take it or leave it when it comes to Dresden Files so we'll see).

Engaged in Death
Engaged in Death - Stephanie Blackmoore

Underwhelming. I was really looking forward to reading this, but it just didn't do it for me. Although the plot was intriguing, the characters didn't appeal to me and I skimmed most of the book just to see whodunit but overall, I wasn't very impressed.
