“Author Charles French has created an adventure driven horror novel. This book presents loveable good and moral heroes and pits them against horrific evil. As a reader, I enjoyed the author’s detailed and polished writing style. The beautiful friendships between characters was my favorite part of this book. Looking forward to reading books 2 and eventually 3! Gallows Hill (part 2) is now available! I scooped it up and its next on my book list to read!

A Wonderful Review of Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 1

Standard
Maledicus
I want to thank Robbie Cheadle for this wonderful review of Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 1 by Charles F. French. Please take a visit to her site: https://robbiesinspiration.wordpress.com/
“Maledicus is the right hand man to Caligula, Emperor of the Roman Empire, and they are equally despicable, inhumane and outright evil. Maledicus has plans, great plans, whereby he will ascend to the top position of Emperor but he underestimates the incumbent, Caligula, and his many eyes and ears. Maledicus never achieves his aspirations and is dispatched to the afterlife in an unpleasant and painful way.

In the non world between Heaven and Hell, Maledicus lurks. He is not reconciled to his unnatural death and believes his chance to aspire to greatness will come. He sets about manipulating events and circumstances to achieve his ultimate goals of greatness.

Meanwhile, time has moved on and in the 21st century, three elderly and retired men, Roosevelt, Sam and Jeremy, have formed a ghost-investigating group, with the occasional help and support from Roosevelt’s nephew, ex-US Marine, Patrick. They have all suffered personal losses and this is a great way for them to keep themselves mental and physically active and to indulge in an interest in ghosts and the supernatural. When their Investigative Paranormal Society (“IPS”) gets its first really legitimate case, they find themselves up against an on-going evil that refuses to die. Can the IPS go up against an ancient and expanding evil and expect anything other than untimely deaths?

I enjoyed the characters of Roosevelt, Sam, Jeremy and Patrick and learning about their individual losses and life experiences, all of which weave together into the fabric of this well planned story.

The idea behind this book is fresh and clever and the ending was superb. I was really impressed by the author’s unique and thrilling ending.”

I am honored to be able to post this review of my horror novel Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society Book 1 by Charles F. French.

Maledicus

Maledicus follows the plot of a horror story, which is the first horror novel I have ever read. This being said, I had low expectations since I have never truly been one to want to read a book focused around horror, or even mystery. However, contrary to my mindset prior to reading the novel, I found this book hard to put down since the story was captivating and the characters were intriguing. The characters were specifically fun to read about since they were relatable. One character I particularly enjoyed was Roosevelt, even with the age difference since I am 18 years old in comparison. Also, the author utilized a casual tone and adolescent-like language in the dialogue of the novel, creating almost a comedic undertone that I thoroughly enjoyed. Another aspect that I touched upon in my earlier reviews was the use of description and scene-setting. This was particularly interesting to me because the description added an element of fear and anticipation that I have not experienced in a novel before Maledicus. On top of this, I found that the descriptions of the settings were especially important to the overall tone of the story. The descriptions allowed for clear developments of images in my head, which articulated the author’s image very effectively. The outline and overall structure of the book were also very intriguing since it had a pace that was easy to digest the information, but also maintains the reader s attention. The outline also had smooth transitions between the different storylines, from Maledicus to Roosevelt, and locations, from Rome to Pennsylvania. Therefore, this element maintained a clear story, but also kept a pace that did not muddy the fun and anticipation of the book. After reading Maledicus, I am upset that I did not delve into the world of supernatural novels until now. However, this provides me with a new genre to delve into and learn about.

I truly enjoyed reading this book for many reasons. First, it was easy to read and understand exactly what was being said. I also enjoyed reading and knowing more about all the characters and was wondering how they will all relate to later on. Reading this book kind of reminded me a bit of the movie crash, in regards to learning about the characters and how they will all relate to each other. I also got the chills at different times when reading the book. I loved the fact that I thought I knew what was going to happen and I was all wrong, great twist. Lastly, I liked that it has short chapters, and each chapter introduced a different character or setting; this made it very interesting. Excellent book, highly recommend for all audience.
