READ AN EXCERPT!
This one is difficult for me to review. I took a long time to get into it, which meant I read it in short blasts, inbetween reading other books. Bear this is mind when reading my review.
Reading the blurb, Devil Music sounded just my cuppa tea . Set in the 80’s (when I was growing up), it had a dark thriller plot with supernatural and horror elements, all of which made me eager to get stuck in.
But something fell flat for me straight away.
The writing wasn’t the issue, though I think it could do with tightening up in the first half so things move along faster. The characters were okay, if a little two dimensional at times. I never attached, which usually means I drag myself through a story. And the plot was thrilling, though I wish it had started sooner. It’s the culmination of all of these ‘okays’ which means, in my opinion (not necessarily yours) that it was only ‘okay’ when I’d expected awesome!
For this reason, I give it 3.5/5.
