5.0 out of 5 stars Very original, great characters, excellent story..., November 25, 2011
By RSP SciFi-er (Staten Island) - See all my reviews This review is from: Chasing The Trickster (Paperback)
Instead of recycling old tropes (vampires, werewolves, witches, et al), Chasing the Trickster is a very original interpretation of horror/fantasy using two largely unexplored mythologies: those of the Southwestern United States and Central Europe. So, the first part of the good news is that, as you read, there is absolutely none of that feeling of, "Wait... didn't I read this before?" No, as your gobble this up (I found this book very difficult to put down), you won't harken back to a previous read and say to your yourself, "Oh yeah, this is like that OTHER book!"
The really good news is that the characters are extremely well drawn and executed. Throw in an unorthodox approach to treating time and plot, some really nice plot twists and genuine surprises, as well as an ending with epilogue that ties everything up into an excellent and satisfying conclusion and you have one of the best books I've read all year. No real bad news! Great job, Ms. Grey!
