This book is written in a unique style that Cynthia Fridsma took the time to develop each character. The book is divided from multiple viewpoints from the different characters in the book, allowing the reader to develop a complete picture of what is going on and why. It was exciting to see how each life intertwined into the others and how each character was thoroughly developed.
The Hotel of Death is a mix of a few genres which keeps it fresh and interesting compared to some other books that I have read recently. During the first few chapters you'd never expect vampires or any other crazy additions to the book, but then events unfold and escalate sucking in the reader.
I admire how Cynthia took the time to get locations factually right, especially when Richard visited the Freedom Trail in Boston. I walked this exact trail only a few years ago and was able to picture exactly what she was talking about and where. It brought back some great memories and pictures from my trip there.
Overall Sybil was likely my favorite character, she was extremely well-developed and played a creative role in the book. The author maintained the unique perspectives throughout the book which was exciting to see. The only minor complaint I have about the book is it seemed to have some superfluous sections that were a bit drawn out, but being so entertaining it is not a big deal. If you are into action/adventure/spy/vampire style books, this one is certainly for you.
The story quickly moves on from these every day activities into a fight between the heroic "Nightbirds" and the villainous hordes of the "Reaper".
How are these two threads linked? You'll have to read it to find out, but suffice to say, you won't see it coming!
The characters are fully fleshed out and most of them have a chance to develop over the course of the story.
The locations are brought to life through some very immersive descriptions.
Even the timeline is accurate, from the events of the American Civil War through to the modern day.
I hadn't really read thriller stories before, but this is a brilliant introduction to the genre. I hope the next entry in the series will be just as exciting to read!
I had a hard time getting into the book, but once I did I enjoyed it.
Richard is an author on the cusp of writing his third and final book. However, things get a little waylaid when the truth comes out. He flees to Boston, to lick his wounds, heal and unwind. However, the Hotel he is staying at isn't so quiet. Richard is a pawn, who is moved around the board, with someone always telling him, you can trust me. But who can Richard really trust? After all isn't everyone out for their own interest and self promotion? He's just a pawn in the game.
It was a good book, but some of the characters for me fell flat and needed to be developed more. Sybil, she was a great character. I fell in love with her and wanted more from her. There were some long winded parts, that I skimmed. State it once, move on, stop rehashing. All in all, it was a thrilling read, that I did enjoy.
Hotel of Death is a fantastic read! When I started the book I didn't realize completely what was coming, and this made the book so much more enjoyable!
It added to the suspense, and the mystery!
Once you start reading you see that the story will come at you from different view points from different characters. After you get the hang of this, you will see that it gives you a more complete story line as you go. Typically this type of reading has confused me but the author really nails it!
