What to say about this really great read?
Well written? yes, brilliant in fact, Mr Marquitz (Tim Marquitz: Author Page) manages to put you right inside his main character.
The premise is brilliant, a store of murdered skulls which gives the "holder" a trip into their lives and deaths, murders actually, as the collector likes to add to his morbid assortment.
So whats wrong with it? In my opinion, I think Mr Marquitz missed a trick by not putting you inside the victims, giving their PoV, maybe even some more victims? (yes im a sicko) and the story most definitely needs more of the background to Jacob, why was he new in the village? why did his Dad hate him so much? what is Ann's story? why does Jacob become so addicted?
All that said, its a great read and I will continue to be WOW'd by this brilliant story teller.
