Mark’s investigation is soon overwhelmed by a series of unnerving events, plunging him into a nightmare of vampires and devil worship. Can he make it back home to his family in one piece?
When I was given a link to this book about a month ago I was very intrigued by the sound of this book and also I was a bit wary, as this book and new series are a bit different from the D.C Scott Cullen series of books that I have come to really enjoy by author Ed James. Now having finished the first book in the Supernature series I can happily say that my doubts about this have been washed away and I have become a fan. It is obviously not a police procedural but I could still see this novel sitting happily alongside Eds other novels, as nowadays the Crime novel genre includes Mysteries an thrillers of which Shot through the heart is definitely.
As It is a thrilling adventure novel set in the Scottish Highlands that cleverly weaves the supernatural with history. It will have you griped right through its white knuckle ride of nevers and emotions right through to the books shocking conclusion. It just leaves me to say if you get a chance to buy or download this book then I urge you to do so as it is a cracker of a book, you won’t be disappointed. So it looks like 2014 is going to be a great time for fans of Ed James books as we are looking at a new Scott Cullen Book, number 5 called Bottleneck and a new Supernature book called Crash into my Arms.
