Or, the further adventures of Watch This Space…
I’ve recently been accepted into a Google+ community called Alliance of Self-Published Authors. The group reads and reviews each other’s work. For my first assignment, I read a terrific book called The Dead Dance Faster by Julie Ann Hacker.
I know what you’re thinking. But Pandora, it’s not erotic romance. I know. But it was a really good read and I gave it 5 stars. Here is my review from Amazon.
I just finished reading The Dead Dance Faster by Julie Ann Hackner. Holy cow, what a ride! It’s a dark, twisted, unpredictable story.
Jael breaks up with her on again/off again boyfriend Shane, quits her job, and moves to an eery little town where her family has questionable and mysterious roots. She wants a break from her dysfunctional family and Seven Hills seems like the right place for a fresh start.
I really don’t want to tell you much more than that because I don’t want spoil the story. But Julie Ann Hackner has created a dark world of family ties, tragedy, religious fanaticism, and “screaming egos” by using sensory atmospheric descriptions that call to mind Stephen King. Along the way she drops hints and clues like a trail of breadcrumbs leading to a shocking finale.
I understand that Book #2 will be out in September. Count me in!
If you’re looking for your next great read, and you’ve finished Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over (just sayin’), check out The Dead Dance Faster. It’s even free on Kindle Unlimited.
