What did I think about it?

Loved this book!

William Massa is still a relatively new-to-me author. I read his Dracula based crime thriller (Fear The Light) earlier this year and really enjoyed it.

Massa’s writing style is intelligent but easy to read. He has a good understanding of how to create an engaging story and obviously carries out hours of research. However, I never felt bogged down in background information. Massa allows his readers to get to know the characters he creates – he shows us their personalities.

What a great premise!

I enjoyed the mix of paranormal and science fiction in Damnation Cade. Massa laid down the backstory without ever slowing down the pace of this action-filled techno-thriller. Giving us enough information to know what makes our hero, Mark Talon, tick and his extensive experience as a lethal warrior.

The plot moved smoothly with a good balance of tension and action. There were a couple of surprise twists and turns that I loved. You don’t really want to know what’s going to happen next in stories of this genre although we all love to guess. 😉

Damnation Code had me gripped right from the first page to the last. It’s an excellent start to Occult Assassin series. I can’t wait to read more.

If William Massa is new for you too, keep reading to find out more him.
