Blog Tour: From the Depths by @jamesharoldson - #Review #Giveaway

Date Published: January 17, 2014

When Cameron Bishop III encounters something inhuman and horrible while working as a pool boy, he is suddenly tasked with saving the world from an evil older than the Earth itself. Working against him is the Order, a cult of unimaginable power and wealth led by an enigmatic madman. With his friends and family starting to believe that Cam may be going crazy, can he stop the plans of an ancient evil and its worshipers before they resurrect a living, breathing god bent on the destruction of life as we know it?

My Review

An unexpected, dare I say Treat? It seems weird to call it that being that it is a Horror novel, but I was truly pleasantly surprised by the way James Haroldson drew me in.

I particularly liked the flow and progression the story followed. Everything seemed to unfold naturally and nothing seemed forced. Along those lines, I didn't feel like I got lost. Everything was fast paced enough to keep me flipping pages without feeling lost. 

In my short time on this ball of rock and water hurtling through the infinite blackness of space, I've worked as a pizza delivery guy, a manny, an ESL teacher, a headhunter, a pool man, a sushi delivery guy, a journalist, and a second mortgage intern, among other things. Currently, I shill video games to over privileged children in Burbank, CA, so that I can pay my bills and still have a place to go home to and work on my writing.

I read a lot, but my greatest influences would have to be HP Lovecraft and Stephen King, both of whom I've been reading since I was but a wee lad who only understood half of what he was looking at. Despite my gruff exterior, I'm desperate for people to like my books, so my books.
