The characters are compelling and you can definitely see the author s favorite influence, Stephen King, honored by references to Misery and Cujo without actually taking away from the unique world Brooklyn Hudson has created.The form problems could be easily corrected The narration switches points of views mid scene for no story moving purpose There is one POV we should not be allowed to see at all the autistic mute teenager s and yet we are occasionally abruptly dropped into her head It is a pet peeve of mine to be immersed in one character s point of view and then suddenly be thrown into the other s Telling the story from Julien s POV is brilliant and I wanted it to stay there When Rachael s POV is essential it could be extracted in dialogue or in her own chapters.There are also some logic holes in the story and a lack of cohesion between various events and characters but there are very few typos and the grammar is pitch perfect which is a big issue for me when reading indie authors and if it is too far off, I don t make it through I fully intend to read the next installment because my curiosity has been sparked The bonus chapter on the author s web site has me wanting a lotThe magical premise is very creative and I will never look at a baked chicken in quite the same way again
