NGGiant 9 Panel KU 1024x1024 - How fierce? Book Blitz and Review

Review:

As I like Nicole Snow, I had picked this up from KU as soon as I knew she had a new book out.

It was, as she says, different, with a young boy who pulls at your heart strings with his camera and how he sees the world.

And then we have this very large man, who is very protective of his son, and has the nickname of Alaska, because that was where he lived. and also because he looked rather like a large bear who might live in the wilds of Alaska!

We also have a somewhat damaged heroine who needs help, that Alaska provides. And of course, there is a love story in the end, complicated by the need for the child to be protected and loved.

I always like her stories and this was no different. it is heartwarming to see the father’s love and his determination to provide the best life he can for his son. Good style and nice phrasing.

No friend of his

I don’t read Horror stories much – my imagination is too wild – and I get nightmares, but this one I couldn’t put down.

And what this is really, is the battle between Good and Evil – as is common in fantasy novels, with a child/ren at the core of it. But who is really the Good? And who really the Bad? That is the stark choice that the children have to make – at an age when their brains are still very malleable and have yet got to the age of knowledge.

I found myself cheering for the boys and their defence of having a tree house – but what it did to the boys’ brains was spooky and eerie. And then there was the ‘luck’ or payment perhaps and..

I liked the style of the author and found it easy to read, clear and whilst not a short book, the story didn’t get boring. An amount of editing out of some of the scenes might of helped, but still excellent in its genre.

Ghost or Hallucination?

Is this a ghost story or a murder mystery? It is up to the reader to decide but it encompasses both. We have a ghost – a very persistent and quite forceful ghost; but we also have a murder and mystery. Who is the ghost? And what happened to him? He was murdered, but how and by who, and where? Set in small town USA with a very small policeforce and not much money, we have female police officer with stickability and persistence and curiosity. All of which gets her into serious trouble as she tries to find out about the ghost boy. As she delves into his case, the FBI find a graveyard and that is where things begin to get strange for our heroine – and a professor (college lecturer) with his own mental issues that having a ghost visit doesn’t help I thought the suspense was well carried and it isn’t until the final stages of the last chapter that it all comes to be resolved and the final pieces of the puzzle fit together. The issues with schizophrenia were well narrated and explored and it was refreshing to find a character with these flaws who wasn’t a psychology expert as so many books seem to write them up as. The story is a little short and we should really have found out more about the other children –  the live ones as well as the dead ones. It would have helped fill out the story – perhaps someone could have list of lost children, ages, sexes; surely the FBI would be involved before the graves came to light?  What about the FBI officers? Could we know about them? This novel seems rather like a preliminary / prequel tale for a series that is  longer and more involved. It is good – as far as it goes. This is the first in a new series with our female detective and I look forward to reading further books.
