Acolyte is the first book in the Wildermoor Apocalypse trilogy.
A big thanks to TBC and the author for allowing me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I awarded four stars as I found it took me a while to get into the story and get use to the switching between the years throughout. I also found that I had to concentrate throughout this story otherwise I would miss a part that was major for the plot. BUT once I got into the story I could not stop reading. I devoured this story in 2 days and really enjoyed it, its very different from what I would usually read but surprisingly I loved it. It is written well, fast paced and i found it addictive. Parts were a bit ‘brutal’ with very descriptive horror parts that I found grim but that to me is what makes a horror GREAT! I just thought I would warn you. Anything I did find confusing was cleared up by the ending which explained all and finished on a cliffhanger (dun, dun, dun..) But I get the pleasure to now read the second story (and review) in the trilogy which I am going to dive into right away… Would highly recommend this trilogy so far.
Acolyte is perfect for readers who enjoy a spooky suspense, mystery, fantasy and horror. I would recommend to read it in day light though and not alone in bed at night, I didn’t risk that one this time. Enjoy, I did.
