PDF DOWNLOAD The Hunted The Darkest Hand Trilogy #05 ´ Tarn Richardson
The shadowy world he clashes with is made up of horrid characters that have little redeeming value fortunately he drinks Tacit is not the most obvious choice for a hero but in the world of The Hunted you have to take what you get This short story is a compelling set up for the next novel I am eagerly awaiting the release of The Damned and this preuel has whetted my appetite wonderfully It is a short taster of what is to come but when the pace is fast you have to react uickly and decide by instinct if you are going to survive This is a strong introduction to the main character Poldek Tacit He is well defined as being tenacious ruthless single minded and most importantly flawed When you read this and you really should read it imagine what the full length books are going to be like Original Review 35I wish it had been betterI do wish that this had been betterRichardson has created an amazing set up within The Hunted a beautiful story of paranormal hunting priests going after demons and such A wonderful premises one that in my opinion isn t written enough Then he discovers a whole new incident he needs to deal with and the action kicks in even The description in this book was definitely 55 I don t think Richardson could have done any with the description in my opinion It was stunningly written and really caught my attention to the point that I couldn t put this down at one pointThe main character is well written he feels three dimensional like someone you would meet in real life and it s a wonderful thing to see Two dimensional characters in short horror stories are all too commonSo why only three starsI felt the ending was very weak compared to the "rest of the book It all wrapped up but it ust didn t seem to fit right at all We "of the book It all wrapped up but it Reckoning The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment just didn t seem to fit right at all We from 100% action to about 2% action and it was uite disappointing It s always disappointing when a book starts off really well and then the endingust Doesn t work out It s a good book I d still recommend it to anyone who
Likes A Short Horrora short horror but the ending was a bit of a disappointmentRe review 45So after I posted my review Richardson commented on my review and informed me why they had ended the book as they had and I went back and read the last chapter again with this information in mind Being able to relate to what Richardson wanted to portray and to realise my frustration at a weak ending was meant to be felt at that moment in time really made me realise that this wasn t a weak ending at all but very much an extremely well written ending that made the reader feel exactly like Tacit was feelingKnowing this information has opened my eyes to this book a little bit and I can t wait to sit and read it again with a new point of view on the bookThank you Richardson for taking the time to explain it to meRereview after reread 5 5 06th May 2017Tarn asked me not to write a new review for this so I ust wanted to add on that I really enjoyed this the second time around I knew what was coming but still waited with baited breath for each detail The ending was much enjoyable this time around This was absolutely brilliant I can t wait to delve into the rest of this series.
