Deep within the bowels of an abandoned Cornish mine a covert occult group, known as the Network, protects the living from the dead. Their mediums host a plethora of abilities — from telepathy to astral projection — because of their connection to an energy source called the frequency.
I am so grateful to Books of Match Media, Pennard Press, and the author for a physical copy in exchange for an honest review! This book was a well executed paranormal thriller that kept me peeked until the very end!
This book was such an epic paranormal read that I was NOT expecting, but ended up loving!
When the read started, I was expecting to follow Rasha and her dark story through healing from a tragic loss and experiencing some creepy dark vibes. However, as the story goes on, more characters and their dark stories are added into making a story that is much darker and much deeper than I expected. So I got all the creeps and thrills of a paranormal, but with some very well developed and unpredictable characters. I was obsessed, but it also took me a minute to readjust and get into it.
The author goes VERY in depth with explaining the dynamics of the Network and how the frequencies actually work. It was a LOT of world building and I actually had to take some notes to get some of the vocabulary down! (maybe the author should have a glossary in the back… just saying) BUT…. there is NOTHING wrong with world building especially if the author created such a unique and creative world that I don’t know whether to be scared of it orrrrrr amazed by it.
The writing style and the storyline reminded me a LOT of reading a Stephen King book because this author’s attention to detail is spot on and very well done. The author, like Stephen King, also took a very spooky horror movie like concept, but gave the characters a much better depthness which almost explains how they got to where they are. This book takes the concept of grief to a whole new level as well and almost gives it a physical appearance. These characters are very real and what they’re experiencing is dark, but relatable. The story is told through multiple perspectives and I enjoyed ALL of them. They all added something to the bigger picture of the work and I never found myself skimming to get to another character.
Note… THIS BOOK IS BEYOND HEARTBREAKING SOOOO GET SOME TISSUES PEOPLE!
The plot had so many crazy and bumpy moments and I never knew what was going to happen next. However, make sure you PAY ATTENTION because there are a LOT of small details that come back to haunt you later.
Overall, this book was FANTASTIC and I can’t wait for the next installment.
