This story is an interesting one, especially if you like the horror genre! Starting off in the present and then bouncing to the past and back again, finally showing how they relate to each other. While this is a horror story of violence, I get the feeling that it is more intended to be a suspense thriller. That in itself can also keep someone on their toes.
The story is written in a way that right off the get go, you feel even just a little bit for all the characters involved. I like that in the story, it creates great character interest and a desire to see where this will go. While I don’t subscribe to the horror/suspense thriller genre, I can see this story keeping people on the edge of their seat with all the lights on!
The cover itself is well done and already starts you off thinking about hidden rooms and dungeons with how dark it is. There really isn’t any indication what the book is about unless you open the book and look inside, but as I stated before, if you are into the horror/suspense thriller genre, then this wonderful cover is done in a way to cause intrigue and inspire the imagination.
The interior artwork is well done and is a nice blend of what the criminal is doing, versus what is happening in the hospital. The contrast between dark and light is an easy transition and doesn’t distract from the story. Making it easy to follow which character is doing what.
One of the nice things that I like about the segway’s, is the inclusion into the past history of the doctor, and how it is presented. It is well done and defined, as to clearly indicate what is the past and what is the present!
Overall the book has what appears to be a good story, followed up by good artwork!
