Review & Giveaway: Mathieu by Irene Ferris


Mathieu
by Irene Ferris

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: paranormal/romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

When Mathieu followed his king to war, he knew the Crusades were holy, that God went with him, and that he would return to the arms of his truest love. 800 years later, enslaved by the demon Gadreel, all Mathieu knows is pain.

After winning his freedom, Mathieu emerges from the dark void of captivity, only to find himself facing the soul of the love he left behind, in the eyes of Jenn Bartlett. Can he do the terrifying thing she asks of him, and still save her from the monster he has become? Or will the darkness
overcome them both?

My Review:


The paranormal genre is not my favorite, sometimes I have read some books about vampires but the cover and the plot of this one struck me and I decided to read it. And I was not at all disappointed. It's a particular book, very intense and strong. We perceives so much the suffering, the despair of the various characters.
Mathieu was captured and enslaved by an evil demon, he was violently tortured. The demon sent his demonic abilities. After many years he managed to have his freedom but to save someone very dear to him he is likely to lose it again. What will decide? It is really worth?
It is not a simple story to read but very engaging and well written, it does not seem written by a debutant author. It's full of twists, suspense, mysteries and many dangers. It's  represented in an original way the classic struggle between good and evil. Mathieu is a great character, very well developed. It describes perfectly his struggle, even the loss of himself. We suffer with him, fight with him,
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.

I received an advanced reader copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

EXCERPT:


The door opened easily, dragging across the floor in a groove that had been scraped down to rock.

She paused when she saw what was inside the small building.  It certainly wasn’t what she’d expected.

It was a chapel.  A small, bare, empty chapel but still a chapel.  A simple wooden cross hung against the far wall, worked to seem as if it sprouted from the side of the mountain. The lines were clean and simple, but the wood shone in the shafts of sunlight that hit it from high slit windows that she’d not been able to see from outside.

The wood had been polished until it gleamed, she noted with a distant part of her brain.  The rest of her noticed the two small benches that seemed to fill the rest of the small building. They were just as well made and cared for as the cross.

“I should have known that they’d send you when no one else could get through.”  The voice was as she remembered, low and soft, with an accent that was almost French but not quite.  He’d appeared somehow by her left elbow but she was too tired to jump or scream or even wonder how he’d done that. She just sighed as he closed the door behind her.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Irene Ferris wanted to be an archaeologist paleontologist astronaut when she grew up. Instead, life pushed her into insurance claims to expiate her past life sins. Obviously, she was a horrible person. Writing dulls the pain, has less calories than alcohol and is (mostly) completely legal.

She lives the dream in the humid paradise that is Florida with her exceptionally patient husband, daughter and two extremely stupid cats. She is well on her way to her retirement goal of being a crazy cat lady. All she needs is thirty-seven more cats.

Look for Irene's debut novel Mathieu in Fall 2015.
