I’m grateful of receiving a free copy from the publisher/author in exchange for an honest review of this book. –
Today I’m delighted to be on the ‘Ragman’ blogtour, organised by Zooloo’s Book Tours.
To promote this book I’ll be sharing my review, but first I have some information
About the Author :
A life-long resident of New York’s haunted Hudson Valley, JG Faherty has been a finalist for both the Bram Stoker Award® (THE CURE, GHOSTS OF CORONADO BAY) and ITW Thriller Award (THE BURNING TIME), and he is the author of 8 novels, 11 novellas, and more than 75 short stories. He writes adult and YA horror, science fiction, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy. He grew up enthralled with the horror movies and books of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, and as a child his favorite playground was a 17th-century cemetery. Which explains a lot.
About the Book :
If you love a great horror tale with ancient mummies, a deluded priest and two oddball cops, then you’re in for a treat…
In 1882, a group of British soldiers plunder an Egyptian temple and kill the high priest. The priest vows revenge, and is finally revived in the present day.
He finds the great-grandson of the man who killed him, but they form an uneasy partnership to get back all the stolen artifacts and send all the descendants of the other soldiers to the Underworld.
Two police officers, former partners who had a falling out, must put aside their differences as they go from trying to solve gruesome, unexplained murders to risking their lives to stop the supernatural mummy the priest has called forth.
And now it’s finally time for my
I’ve always been very interested in everything (remotely) related to Ancient Egypt so when I saw the cover of ‘Ragman’ by J. G. Faherty I was immediately excited.
After reading the blurb I knew it would be right up my alley as it contained not only mummies, murder, mayhem, … but also a couple of police officers with a past.
Thrilled about all of this I started reading and became hooked from the very first pages as it made for an intriguing beginning that left me wanting for more.
Needless to say that I flew through the book as I enjoyed the Ancient Egyptian theme and I loved the characters who tried to solve the problem at hand and the ones from their own past.
However, I also must confess that this story wasn’t a perfect one for me as I would have liked some things to be more extensive or maybe told in other places to have a better connection as a whole.
Maybe this can be seen as a bit of nit-picking from me or a way to say I would have loved to spend more time with these characters as I very much believe the main quartet are worthy of many more adventures together!
