Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

A Latent Dark

A Latent Dark - Martin Kee

by Martin Kee


This one had a little of everything; ghosts, vampires witches, anything Horror related, but the main focus apart from the protagonist being a witch was on demons. A teenage witch sees the demons get her mother and has to hide not only from them, but from the local people who would burn her house down.


It started out very good, then got slow enough that I considered abandoning it, then got better again and kept alternating like this. It had an odd mixture of elements; religion, a gollem, soul eaters and even airships! The protagonist, Skyla, was okay but her name irritated me.


All things considered it was an okay read but inconsistent and the demons weren't really scary.
