Full of Suspense

4.5 out of 5 stars

I went into this one completely blind. I had no earthy idea what it was going to be about until I was almost 3/4 of the way through it (when I decided to sneak a peak at the synopsis). I’m glad I did it that way though since I had absolutely no assumptions as to what was going to happen. Even after reading the synopsis – I was not fully prepared for the level of storytelling I was going to get in a three-hour novella.

I find it fascinating that in the amount of pages that Lorn had – he was able to pull off something this interesting and downright suspensful. The last 45+ minutes were agony as I was trying to figure out what was going to happen.  He was able to put in so much into such a small package.

I also find it interesting that outside of the one element – this was extremely realistic. The main character had a very real and very realistic drug addiction, and Lorn’s understanding of this is, a bit scary. He goes into real detail about what the next fix is like (or even the knowledge that your next fix is coming).  He’s able to capture that “high functioning” junkie point of view very well.

Overall, I thought this was a fascinating book, a book full of suspense, and an absolutely awesome introduction to Lorn as an author. I can’t wait to start another book soon!

Also, I was in a slight reading funk and I’ll tell you – Fog Warning snapped me right out of it.  It ended up being the perfect palate cleanser.  That short book that you need to re-light that reading fire. Ironically, watching a youtube video of Edward talking about how he writes so much and so often is what sparked me to finally read one of his books.  He mentioned something about always be doing something.  It allowed me to realize that if I put a book down for a moment, I needed to pick another one up. And why not pick up one of his novellas that I’ve been sitting on for no reason?!
