Desolace by Lucian Barnes
I received this book from the author in turn for an honest review ~ WaAr
I was hooked from page one. The book started out strong and intriguing although I picked up a problem with the fact that the second victim relaxed under the touch of the serial killer, that seemed impossible and I was wondering if that part of the story will not offend sensitive readers. But the progress from that point onwards convinced me that the story itself is strong enough to carry the reader past some minor misgivings.
Soon after however the book turns away from the original story line much as if the author felt that he wanted to write a different story in a different genre but liked his characters well enough and did not want to start over. This confused me and I found it troubling. The direction the story takes from then on is not a strong story line, or it actually might be, I was prejudiced and could not get a take on the story at that stage any longer. I actually loved the first 35% of the book, and I think the author could have done a massive success had he carried on with that part and wrote the story as a murder mystery with elements of the paranormal. If he started a second book with the rest of the story line I would have most probably enjoyed that as well. But the combination did not work well for me.
I can't emphasize enough how great the beginning was, and how much hope I had for the story. I don’t like writing negative reviews but I feel that this author has major potential and that he might need to hear what readers think in order to live up to that potential.

Read information about the authorI 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, I have published nine more novels as well as an omnibus edition ebook of the entire Desolace series. My next book, a collection of short stories called Fractured Reflections, is scheduled for release in February 2017.
