HALCYON: Raised by God Never Told to Lay Down

We rated this book:


Sacramento author Michael Holder has published a supernatural thriller based in the Sacramento area, dealing with a multi-generational occult plot to release a demonic force into the world, a Vatican investigator – the eponymous Halcyon, and a Sacramento Sheriff’s officer Hunter Musgrave. Halcyon and Musgrave have to find the human host of the demon Confectororis and his summoner before it is too late for mankind. The action takes place in easily identifiable areas around Sacramento, making it fun for local readers to follow the story as it takes place around town.

The story has high points, and some surprises (including the actual identity of Halcyon and his relationship with the church), which make it a pleasant read. It does have some rough edges with dialog and structure that could be smoothed out with either editing or more experience writing. For an initial release, Halcyon is a good book, and leaves enough room for another story about Father Thaddeus Halcyon.
