✱✱Book Review✱✱ Devil's Bane by Glenn Williams

Devil's Bane: A Paranormal Thriller 
The Port Hollow Witches Book 1
by Glenn Williams 

Bodies are turning up in the Olympic Peninsula. Each victim shows unmistakable signs of being murdered with dark magic. It’s clear that the most forbidden and dangerous of the black arts are still being practiced in the town of Port Hollow. Ancient sorceries that allow power to be stolen from innocent life. And Kathryn Silk plans to stop it, no matter the cost.

Rory Garcia harbors deadly secrets. He has committed the ultimate betrayal against his coven, crimes that cannot be forgiven. And someone already knows the truth. It is only a matter of time before he pays the price.

But keeping secrets in a town like Port Hollow is dangerous work. And it might be the undoing of them all.

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Devil's Bane is an action-driven story, and there is nothing wrong with that. Except that the story is so busy, it didn't really allow time for character development, which made it hard to connect and really become invested in the characters. I'm all for a fast-paced thriller, but there is a limit, and this one is so busy that it is detrimental to the other necessary elements of a good thriller. That said, it's not a bad story by any means, and the rapid-fire action certainly works for some people. In fact, I think this story would work very well on the big screen with so much going on. Glenn Williams does have talent and quite the imagination, so I would say if you like paranormal thrillers, I would say to give this one a shot. In the end, I found myself somewhere in the fair to middlin range. It's not exactly what I was hoping for, but it was worth the read.
