BLOOD AND RAIN by B.L Morgan, reviewed by BL Kennedy
Blood and Rain
Stone Garden.net Publishing
There are reasons for all the things that I do. You may not understand them. Hell I might not understand them, but there are reasons. It’s Saturday night, raining lightly. I’m driving in my car, a tan Olds Delta Eighty-Eight. Just driving, watching the streaks made by the streetlights and the blinking neon lights from the taverns.
What can I say about Blood and Rain: A John Dark Shocker? Just that, I wish I had something to say about this book. But I don’t. Oh, I can tell you its well written and very entertaining, but overall, I felt like I was missing out on the mythology of its main character, John Dark. I feel that anybody who comes across Blood and Rain without having read the previous John Dark books will be just as lost as I am. Its that place where a critic never wants to be that I find myself in; part of me really likes this book, and part of me wants to dropkick it out my living room window. Either way, its going to up to each individual reader. So, yeah, purchase a copy of Blood and Rain. Or better yet, figure out which book is the first in the series and start there.
