Vine: An Urban Legend by Michael Williams

Michael Williams’ Blog Tour 

This book is self described as wedding of Greek tragedy and urban legend.  Apparently I am not a fan of Greek tragedy.   I know I like urban fantasy and have even written myself about an urban legend.  I just could not get into this book.   I made multiple attempts and failed miserably.   

I don't admit failure easily so this post isn't easy.   I can't even say I didn't like it as I couldn't even get a handle on it.  It will no doubt garner an audience but sadly I'm not one of that group.  This is why they make more than one flavor of ice cream, the world needs chocolate and vanilla and once in awhile rum raisin.  This book may be your rum raisin. It is quite different and it may be your cup of tea so I would suggest doing a personal evaluation.  

I am proud to be on the blog tour and to help promote a book that you might like even if I am not enamored with it myself.   Gasp! I have even gotten bad reviews on my own books so I am well aware how fickle the reading public can be.  And really fickle isn't appropriate, referring back to ice cream (You probably have noticed in the past how often food metaphors appear in my writing.), sometimes a flavor that is well loved by the rest of the world doesn't ever make your top ten.  I suspect that is the case here as I have read some glowing reviews of the book by people I respect.  I feel I may be out of step with this book but hey! marching has never been my forte. 
Good luck with the book Michael!
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
