My Review of NorthWest

by JH Glaze: *****

Please let me know what you think of my first attempt at a full review. I haven't tried this before and I'd really appreciate some comments and feedback.

Book Blurb:

John Hazard is back on the trail of danger! After a life-altering event, he has resigned from the police department in small town America and enrolled in a Paranormal Investigation course at Bay University, a community college in San Francisco. For their final grade, the class ventures to the Pacific NorthWest to film a documentary on a mysterious phenomenon they call “The NorthWest Triangle,” where scores of small aircraft and people have gone missing without a trace. Professor Macy Renner believes the answer lies in an unsolved mystery from her own past and is determined to discover it, no matter the cost. Emily Sparks has her own reasons for going, and it’s not just about the money. She is about to jump from the frying pan into the fire as she signs on for a journey that will transport her into the veritable jaws of hell. Can a rag-tag team of misfits succeed in uncovering the source of the supernatural anomaly, or will the terror that lies in wait consume them in the process? Come along on an adventure where you will learn that you don’t have to outrun the creatures behind you. You only have to run faster than the person beside you!
 
 
 
 

 

 

 My Review:

There was no fear or trepidation at all when I started reading NorthWest by JH Glaze. I had already read and enjoyed The Spirit Box so I had an inkling of the authors writing style and macabre ideas and the premise was one that truly interested me anyway. I mean alien sci-fi horror, It doesn't get much better does it? All it was missing was vampires but hey we can't have everything at once can we! I was mildly intrigued with John Hazzard in the first book so it was nice to be further introduced to him in this one and to get a closer glimpse into his psyche, and yes he is a character one could easily fall in love with girls, the strong sexy hero type.
If you have a week stomach, it might be best if you skip this one, graphic blood and guts galore but if are a horror fan then this one is definately for you. If you haven't read The Spirit Box though don't worry, you won't miss anything by reading this first as there is nothin more than a few obtuse references to Johns past but it works perfectly well as a stand alone. Personally I loved it, edge of your seat suspense and lots of action, all I really have to say about is "Stephen King, eat your heart out" get this one while you can. It's definitely a 5 star read.
