James Decker just won’t stay dead. Slain while rescuing a young woman from a would-be rapist, he finds himself in a pseudo-life, caught between two realities, belonging to neither.
Haunted by the ghosts of his father and grandfather, he learns that the woman he rescued is in fact an Innocent, the physical embodiment of hope. As it turns out, seeing dead people is the least of James' worries. It's the trolls, goblins, vampires, and other assorted creepy-crawlies that make being dead a living nightmare.
When a Madness Demon kidnaps the Innocent to sacrifice at the Blood Moon ritual, it's up to James and an odd assortment of Otherworld companions to rescue her. If they fail, humanity will be without hope for the next thousand years.
To succeed, James must first battle his own inner demons, and come to grips with who and what he has become. After all, when you're dead, wishing you were is kind of counter-productive.
Overall Feedback: Perry delivers and absolutely hilarious paranormal/urban fantasy/adventure all rolled into one. This is a non stop page-turning, rip-roaring adventure that begs for your attention and takes you into the perfect fantasy. Go ahead and take the chance. No regrets here I promise.
Point of View: Perry does great with showing you the world he created from Decker's side.
Voice: The humor is what will keep you going. The paranormal will keep you thinking. The adventure will stop your breathing.
Character Development: Spot on as you wander/adventure through half death (my words) with Decker.
Plot: Perry paints a world that you know has to exist. Or at least like to believe it exists.
Dialogue: Top notch and flowing. Really adds to the storyline and character development.
Pacing: Non stop, heart pumping and amazing.
Setting: Perry does very well to describe a place no one has been but able to make it a reality in our minds and make it seem familiar.
Continuity: Perry is obvious in wanting this to be a series (my opinion) but he gives enough to make this stand on it's own.
