Stormi's Review: Roam by Erik Therme
PUBLISHER: Thecker Books
RELEASED: February 21, 2017
GENRE: MYSTERY, THRILLER, SUSPENSE
LENGTH: 244 pages
FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
Three strangers, each searching for something out of reach. Sarah Cate, celebrating her twenty-first birthday, is pushed over the edge after car trouble strands her in the middle of nowhere with an angry, unstable boyfriend. Kevin Reed, a troubled adolescent abused by a loveless father, roams the night in his black Camaro, looking to pay forward one of the few acts of kindness he’s ever received. Scotty Mason, plagued by profound guilt and completely detached from his world, is haunted by the unshakable fear that something inside him is dangerously broken and cannot be fixed. When their lives intersect in an unsavory hotel with a bloody history, all three will struggle to exorcise their personal demons, unaware that a bigger threat is looming . . . and waiting for the right moment to strike. Like Joshua Gaylord and Daniel Kraus before him, author Erik Therme explores the angst of disconnected youth in his enthralling and powerful Roam. Therme’s darkly tinged novel is an unforgettable tale of three errant souls brutalized by life’s cruel circumstances, and a remarkable night of discovery and violence that will change them forever.
THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
This book follows Sarah, Matt, Kevin, and Scotty. Sarah and Matt are broke down on the side of the road when Kevin comes by and picks Sarah up after she begins walking. Sarah decides to find her friend Scotty, while Matt decides to come for revenge. Who is in danger here is anyone's guess? Will it be Matt or Sarah? Scotty or Kevin? Read and find out. This book was ok. I liked the way it ended, but most of it was a bit repetitive and jumbled. At times I got a bit confused as to what was going on. The characters were interesting and they held a lot of promise, but the story itself lacked the action and scare that I was expecting. All the action came right at the end. I have always enjoyed books by this author, but this one just wasn't my favorite.
