King of the Dead by Joseph Nassise

A blind man, a witch and a changeling walk into a bar…..   So many endings but none as intriguing as Nassise’s story.  Jeremiah Hunt is blind to the mundane world due to a pact he made with a mysterious entity called the Preacher.   He and his companions, a witch and a changeling are arcanely summoned to New Orleans to stop a plague.

Nassise does a nice job crafting characters that you care about.   His characters are flawed and quite human for the most.  Jeremiah finds himself questioning his own character and his mores in this book.   The prequel to this book, Eyes to See, will give you Jeremiah’s back story.  

Denise and Dmitri are important characters but we don’t get a lot on their background.  If recollection serves me they were provided with a better back story in Eyes to See.

There is plenty of action in this book.  Most of the action is of the arcane nature but some is brought by an obsessed FBI agent.

I like the plots and the intricate nature of the stories from Nassise. 

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
