Desolace ~ Review

Desolace by Lucian Barnes
February 25, 2012 
Revised and edited edition April 2014

A serial killer is loose in Misty Hollows, Ohio and Katie Johnson is sure that her friend Julie has been abducted by this madman. As she searches for her friend, Katie finds an unexpected ally in the ghost of one of the killers victims and soon finds herself transported to a completely foreign time and place. She only hopes that she can find Julie before it's too late.

My Review:
4 Stars
 A great introduction to this series!, April 1, 2013
*For Mature Audiences Only as this book Contains Adult Material*
A great introduction to this series! I have enjoyed the story from the start, but I believe the revisions made this even better than before. We start off with a murder mystery involving a serial killer & bump it up a few notches adding fantasy & paranormal awesomeness.  I will tell you that while I'm not a fan of violence & torture this is a great series that develops more & more through the following books. Obviously dealing with a serial killer is not going to be all lollipops & unicorns, so I was aware this would start out dark. Just be aware that sometimes it gets darker than some might like. If you enjoy a good mystery & can handle the paranormal additions then this series is sure to please you! I am a big paranormal fan, so I loved seeing these 2 worlds meld together! And...I have read all of the books thus far ... they just keep getting better & better.

I spent most of my youth in rural Ohio and began writing stories at an early age. Many of these early attempts at story-telling were inspired by mysteries, such as those found in the old Hardy Boys books and the cartoon antics of Scooby Doo. As I entered my teenage years I began to drift away from writing stories, instead picking up my pencil to compose lyrics for heavy metal songs because my new dream was to become a musician. That vision remained hopeful for many years after my high school graduation, but like most dreams of this nature it died out as I became older.

After working several menial jobs through the years that followed, my thoughts again began to turn toward writing books. Inspired by my favorite author, Stephen King, I took an online creative writing course and slowly began to develop my skills. In late 2010 I was given a violent shove, both by the job market (which was horrible to say the least, and still is) and by the persistent encouragement of close friends, to pick up my pen and begin writing again.

In early 2012 I gave birth (that's almost what it felt like) to my very first published book, Desolace. Finally having a completed novel in my hand was the best feeling in the world for me, giving me a sense of accomplishment I had waited a lifetime for. Since then it has gotten easier for me with each book I have published. Since the initial release of Desolace two more of my novels have been published and another has just been completed. This last work is the first book I've written outside of the Desolace Series, an occult horror novel titled Destined for Darkness. Also in production is my current novel, City of the Dead, which will be the fourth installment of the Desolace Series and is projected to be released in September of 2013.
