Stormi's Review: The Golden Bulls (A Life of Death #2) by Weston Kincade
KINDLE UNLIMITED PUBLISHER: Weston Kincade RELEASED: May 31, 2017 GENRE: YA, HORROR, OCCULT LENGTH: 350 pages FORMAT: EBOOK
Fifteen years of ritual sacrifices that began before Alex Drummond joined the force have become an anomaly in Tranquil Heights. For most residents, anger at the unsolved murders has turned to disappointment with the small police force. Now citizens hope this year’s sacrificial lamb won’t be one of their loved ones.
Alex Drummond’s ability to relive victims’ traumatic murders has not been enough. There are misguided links to Egyptian funerary rights, but without evidence and the murderer’s identity, no one outside of Drummond’s tight circle will believe him, let alone make an arrest and stop the vicious killings. After an anonymous tip, Detective Drummond discovers an annual visitor, a local who moved away years before with a similar flare for murder. He follows her to Washington DC after watching the woman burn her husband alive. His high school friend, Jessie Arturo, who settled in the large city after a failed baseball career, assists with the investigation. In such a large place, unsolved murders abound like cobwebs under abandoned guest beds.
September 20, the serial killer’s anointed date, is only days away. How has the murderer proven so elusive, even from Alex’s paranormal abilities? Is he in over his head, or can Detective Alex Drummond save the ghosts calling to him and decipher this network of brutal, ritual sacrifices before someone else is burnt alive? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This is the second book in this series and It was just as good, if not better, as the first. Alex is a detective now and for years his town has been plagued by annual murders. He's on the hunt to find the killer. His visions come in handy in his job, but at times it brings trouble as well. This book is fast paced and keeps you guessing as a murderer is on the loose and Alex is racing to find them before the new deadline approaches. This book was full of mystery and history. The killer in this book is performing ancient Egyptian rituals and killing people in horrible ways. Along the way, you get a lot of ancient history. The one thing I love about this series is that the characters are real, likable, and easy to connect with. This book is emotionally gripping and really grabs at the reader. Jamie, the son of Alex, now has the ability to help his father. He has an amazing ability to. This helps him save himself and his mother in a very dramatic, action packed ending. All around, this was a great addition to this series and I can't wait to read these next book.
