About this deal

What I liked the most was how the author was developing the characters, especially the one who lived through the war, and it helped to understand (not justify) why he had become so inhumane like this. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Interred in the Majdanek concentration camp for (reluctantly) bringing food to the Polish resistance, starvation drove him to eat the flesh of corpses.

Cora is also mildly into BDSM which apparently gives other characters the right to use and abuse her. From what we actually see, Halloran thinks of nothing but being a professional and perfect bodyguard, acts in the most professional manner, and the only thing he works to prevent harder than security breaches is actual character development.Our Liches Are Different: Kline, whose custody of the preserved heart of Bel Marduk transfers his bodily ageing onto an ancient, unnamed "Keeper", and requires periodic shedding of his skin, may indeed be considered an undead sorcerer. That stated, Herbert tends toward more 'conservative' horror and this could be read just as much a thriller with mystical aspects. God of Evil: Bel-Marduk, otherworldly visitor to ancient Sumer, demanded regular human sacrifice, venerated corruption, and advanced humanity with intent to enable us to wipe each other out. From a tension heavy thriller to a vicious supernatural horror that has been carried over hundreds of years, the tale’s journey has somehow amounted to one hell of a ride, ending in a truly dramatic and fitting finale. Yet there were also areas of dazzling light, the sun bursting through leaded windows with a force intensified by thick glass; these were cleansing places, where Neath's dank chill could be scoured from the body, although only briefly as other rooms, other corridors, were entered, brightness left behind like some sealed core.

Pretty typical Herbert, and by that, I mean a decent story and characters, the obligatory sex scenes, and a decent denouement. After a point, it's just too clear that there's a man behind the curtain doing the splatter painting. The tale just seems to keep on expanding, with more and more puzzling questions being raised around every corner. new mineral resources; he will combat men who thrive on the worst of physical corruption; he will find love of a perverse nature; he will confront the darkness of his own soul.

I loved the references to the Sumerians, and I thought all of the storyline's angles made for an interesting premise. Halloran will combat men who thrive on physical corruptions; he will find love of a perverse nature; he will confront his soul's own darkness. Not just horror, it also has all the elements of a good hard edged thriller with a cast of characters who really are amongst the most loathsome and sick you could find in any book. It is a very dark read revolving around Halloran, whose specialist security company has been hired to provide protection for Felix Kline, an individual who believes he is in danger of being kidnapped or murdered. and surrounds himself with various detestable characters and may be far more ancient than he appears.
