Lydia Allison Cantrell Appears To Live An Idyllic Life She Is The Daughter Of The Richest Man In The Small Town Of Sherman S March And Has Access To Everything Money Can Buy But There Is Something Wrong In The Cantrell Household An Evil Dwells Within That Goes Against The Laws Of God And Nature What S , Lydia Has Just Learned That She Is Pyrokinetic, And The Voice In Her Head Is Pushing Her Towards A Vengeance Of Biblical Proportions In his debut novel, IMMOLATION, Sam Reese tackles some pretty taboo subjects child rape and incest and it is a credit to his ability as a writer that he handles them so well He chooses to tell this heartbreaking story within the horror genre, couching the real life terror of his protagonist s life within realm of the supernatural Lydia is the daughter of the town s most prominent citizen Her life is ideal until her tenth birthday when something unleashes the monster that has always lived, suppressed, within her father The result is a nightmarish existence for the young girl Ashamed, guilt ridden and frightened, she retreats from her friends and from the world she once so innocently embraced.Add into the mix, inherited pyrokinetic abilities and an ancient curse and you have the makings of a real page turner that also conveys a strong message of love and compassion.I won t say anything about the plot, as I don t want to spoil the unveiling for the reader However, Mr Reese does leave the door slightly ajar that end, so, maybe, we will see a continuation of this absorbing tale in the future Highly recommended for adult fans of horror or for those who genuinely enjoy a good read This was an enjoyable and well written story from an up and coming writer I expect there is a lot to come The story revolves around Lydia who at 13 is experiencing both neglect and abuse at home Due to a 150 year old curse on the female members of the family she develops the power to control fire, which she uses to seek revenge upon her tormentors I must be honest and say that although enjoyable, this book is at times over written with slightly odd similes that detract from the flow of the story 4 stars because I couldn t give 3.5 In my opinion, which is probably worth nothing, Sam Reese will give you better in the future, but you should still read this
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Immolation book, this is one of the most wanted Sam Reese author readers around the world.
