Présentation de l'éditeur

Dale Bruyer and James Sandover were huntsmen: monster hunting heirs to a secret legacy, self-appointed defenders of mankind, students of magic, warriors and—in James’s case—occasional chess opponent of the Devil himself. Until James died and left Dale all alone on a self-destructive path through alcoholism to an early grave.

Then one stormy night, the giant tree that had marked James’s grave uproots and Dale finds footprints walking away from the hole beneath it. A killer begins ritualistically murdering young women in the small town of Solagrove, Louisiana where he lives, and though the man in the long black coat sounds a lot like James, it can’t be James. James is dead; there is absolutely no question about it.

Dale is reluctantly dragged into the investigation by his neighbor, the mother of the first victim. He’s not so sure the killings are really his sort of thing, but there’s something very familiar about it all anyway and someone has to stop it. Though why does it have to be him?

In the midst of all this chaos, he suddenly finds himself with a house full: a werewolf in the kitchen, a god crashing on his sofa and a punk rock fallen angel riding shotgun.

This novel has its flaws: the author has chosen a difficult topic and has developed it into an even more difficult plot and he does not manage to keep his writing everywhere as sharp as it should; plotting sometimes unduly releases tension and not all transitions are managed as they should so that the following paragraph might be unexpected and not for the right reason.
Besides, in 2014 one cannot expect the reader to accept chain-smoking to be a bad-*** behaviour worth mentioning. To me it looked like another way for the lead to self-destruct only not as censored by his friends as his drinking habit. Another big no-no there.

That said, this work has a lot to recommend itself.
It is gay-themed in that its lead is gay and in love but it is love more than gay-love that is the motor of the action. His love interest could have been a woman and little would have changed. I am not completely happy about that: on the one hand it makes homosexuality everyday, on the other I still think that if a author chooses a gay lead he needs to make this choice meaningful for the plot.
There is just one full-fledged sex scene that is well done but could have been cut; readers only interested in the story need not fear.

The story itself is a strange, interesting mix of horror and dark urban fantasy. The author seems not particularly interested in creating a gloomy, oppressive atmosphere; what he does is taking judeo-christian religious imagery and reshaping it in a original, interesting new form. Other reviewers say this world may be derivative, but I have not seen "Supernatural" or any other recent fantasy TV series therefore I am not in a position to judge on the issue. The first-book syndrome is there in that the author needs some "asides" to describe his lore and those asides do indeed contribute to some of the unwanted tension releases.
Religious readers may -or not- be offended by this lore; not that I care.
Personally I appreciated the lack of sermons about good and evil, an absence that allowed a non-believer like me to appreciate the setting all the same.

Characterization is interesting even if the side characters are not as involved in the plot as they might have, had the plot been more complex.

All in all I think this author has much room to grow but this output of his is already well worth a read.

P.S. As the author only uses initials and I could not find more details elsewhere, I have written this review using a general "he".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great! Awesome! A newly found "favorite"! 24 août 2014

Great! Awesome! A newly found "favorite"!
The love between Dale Bruyer and James Sandover was breathtakingly beautiful. A love so strong that it defines the characters.
I really loved these characters! All of them!
The cast of characters include a punk-rock-loving fallen angel, Uriah, A trickster Native-American god, Coyote and a loyal Werewolf, Lloyd.
Toss in residences of a conservative small town and you got some action right there.
I do not want to spoil the plot for you. I will simply say, think the TV series Supernatural + Gay Romance.
I caution future readers of two things,
First, the book starts of extremely emo. Had I not had my hands busy at the time I would have moved on to the next book, however around chapter 3 there is a serious kick in plot and excitement level.
Second, There is adult content (on page M/M sex) so it is not for Young Adults or Sensitive readers.
Other than that, I encourage you to give this book a try.
