Overview

Joseph Nassise shook up the urban fantasy genre with "Eyes to See," a novel "New York Times "bestselling author Jonathan Maberry called "heartbreaking, deeply insightful, powerful and genuinely thrilling." In a devil's deal, Jeremiah Hunt sacrificed his human sight in exchange for the power to see the hidden world of ghosts and all of the darker spirits that prowl the streets. Hunt uncovered a world of murder and magic that took his daughter from him and nearly cost him his life, but that was only the beginning....

Now Hunt is on the run from the FBI, who have pegged him as a mass-murdering dark sorcerer. His flight from the law is diverted to New Orleans when his companion, a potent witch, has a horrific vision of the city under magical siege. When they arrive, they realize that the situation is more dire than they could have imagined: the world of the living faces a terrifying attack by forces from beyond the grave. """King of the Dead," the second book in this groundbreaking series, promises more of Nassise's electrifying writing that will enthrall readers looking for a supercharged, supernatural thrill.

Nassise follows Eyes to See with a thoroughly average supernatural thriller. Jeremiah Hunt is hiding from the FBI, holed up in New Jersey with hedge witch Denise Clearwater and berserker Dmitri Alexandrov. The last thing he wants is to go dashing off in response to one of Denise’s nightmare visions, but New Orleans is on fire and full of comatose magic practitioners, all slowly dying. Nassise has dabbled in writing fiction to be read on smartphones, and that sensibility shows in his penchant for capsule descriptions, bite-sized chapters, and novel monsters shallowly described. The heavy hand of foreshadowing is invoked a bit too often, and while the writing lacks notable flaws, it also lacks notable strengths. Still, the pacing does not fail, and the oddball trio provides a refreshing change from the usual petulant-yet-kickass paranormal heroine. Agent: Joe Monti, Barry Goldblatt Literary Agency. (Dec.)
