A series of suspicious deaths draws investigative reporter Deanne Mulhenney and medical examiner Sara Poole into a deadly clash of modern and ancient worlds.

Deanne and Sara soon find something sinister and very, very powerful may connect them all.
Plot/Idea: 10 out of 10
Originality: 10 out of 10
Prose: 10 out of 10
Character/Execution: 10 out of 10
Overall: 10.00 out of 10

Assessment:

Plot:  Reading this book is as entertaining and riveting watching a film. However, the author should consider fewer POV characters so that readers can focus on the plot, especially at the beginning of the story.

Prose/Style: The prose flows well, and word choice is exquisite.

Originality: Again, the prose elevates this novel. Deanne and Sara are strong characters, but the book would benefit from less points of view so that readers can focus.

Character Development: The characters are believable, and this book is worthy of a wide readership. Focusing on a few main characters would keep the plot and perspectives structured.

Blurb:
Powerful prose and strong characters make this supernatural mystery a satisfying read and a page-turner.
