Who? What? Where? When?

Horror Fiction : The Black Apostles - Tony Keegan

I kind of feel bad just giving this story two stars, but ratings are supposed to reflect enjoyment level, right? The story could have been good if the writer would SLOW DOWN and set the scene, give the reader some idea of where, when and who within the first few chapters. Grammar was fine and the dialogue was even good, but I started the story feeling like I came into the middle of it and had no idea what was going on or who was who. By the third chapter, I went back to the book description to try to remember what it was supposed to be about.


What I would advise this author is to learn to set the scene, introduce your characters and don't be in such a hurry to get to the next thing that happens. It's a 71 page story according to Amazon, but reads like a 200 page story told my someone high on Meth.


Fill in the detail, bring the readers into what you're seeing in your head. We're not already there!
