KING OF THE DEAD
It isn’t often that a sequel surpasses expectations, but this is a rare exception. Once again, Nassise has written a thoroughly engrossing story that blends supernatural terrors with heart-wrenching depth and narrative wizardry. Fans of Mike Carey’s Felix Castor or Richard Kadrey’s Sandman Slim will revel in Nassise’s blending of “ghostsight” with vivid real-world descriptions, and his protagonists’ wisely sarcastic insight into the workings of both. Though this is a series to be savored, new readers will have little trouble becoming immersed in this tense, thrilling adventure.
