Fear is real and it is in form of a John Hennessy Book
I was introduced to the series by none other than the author himself and what a tremendous introduction. So much that i am almost like a crazy stalker of the author now. The kind you would see searching the trash bins …yeah that kind of crazy stalker.
If you love horror fiction then look no further but pick a John Hennessy and you will quiver with fear and still wouldn’t stop reading his books. That’s the kind of writer John is. Dark winter is one of the first books that I had read from John Hennessy’s works and needless to say that ever since picking up dark winter #1 I haven’t left any book written by John. Each book had been far superior and impressive than the previous and keeping you hooked to his writings.
Horror is what John does best and the proof is seen in works especially the dark winter trilogy. The entire series follows impressive journey of its central characters and a plot that is weaved brilliantly and in a very addictive fashion. The greatest strength of the series is its strong array of characters and is none that you will see so easily in any books. John has a very unique way of making his books all about the strength and weakness of his characters and that is one of the things that lure you towards the book
Each book in the series, from the very get go grabs you by the throat and keeps you jolting with the things that is happening in the story. Along with its wholesome plot, each character of these books is strong, interesting and perfect match. The author has maintained them very real and not larger than life personas. I felt, making them show their weaker sides helps readers to understand and relate to them easily and effectively .It’s one of those series whose plot itself uplifts the whole book, rather than having to spice it up with anything else. Dark Winter is a good spine chiller with a very spooky plot as its base and the book grows on you, keeping you intrigued.
