Review: Mr. Monster

   Posted by: Garrett   in Path

I liked this one even more than the first. Partly this was because the supernatural element ran through the entire thing, so it didn’t feel like a genre shift right in the middle. But, also because the tension was ratcheted up several more notches in this one.

I thought that Dan did a great job of plotting this one and keeping the story moving the entire time. I didn’t want to put the book down (indeed, I read it in two nights).

John Cleaver got a little more sociopathic (which made me identify with him less), but I could still commiserate with his teen angst and family issues.

I kind of knew who the "new" serial killer in town was, but I was not expecting the why and how.

I also liked the way Dan left it hanging for the next book in the series. Very cool!

So, if you like to be thrilled and shocked, then this book will raise your blood pressure and leave you gasping.
