HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Michael, a now ex-cop, thought that he had faced his darkest hour a year ago when he found his son dead in his wife’s arms and his gun in her hand, within seconds she was dead too but now he faced a more horrific thought. The Devil was stood in front of him with a deal. Michael’s son and wife were not in heaven but in hell being tormented for eternity unless he agreed to do the Devil’s bidding. Then he would release their souls so they could enter heaven.
This is an incredible story from debut author Shervin Jamali, a story that literally rips into your heart and plays with your mind. I ashamedly felt little pity for the victims but I felt compassion for Michael for what he had to do. The more he did the harder the next task was. I really doubted that he would be able to complete what he had begun.
This is a very descriptive and graphic story that holds back on nothing but wow what a story it is. Superbly written it is a very quick paced read that packs what feels like a lot of story into a novella of under 200 pages. It flows beautifully, is very original and for the best reasons possible, as I didn’t want this story to end, I needed Michael’s torment to continue because it was such an awesome read, even though he had suffered for the last 5 years! Ok I aren’t a good person. The good news is there is another novel out now, which I have just got and a further book in the making.
One of my favourite characters has to be God, yes the big fellow himself puts in an appearance, he did make me smile, a brilliant character, in fact a perfect creation, sheer perfection!
HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Also, my favorite punctuation mark is the semi-colon; it’s often used incorrectly, but it’s always winking at you!
