Christopher William’s ingenuity consists of a collection of short stories that are enthralling. He narrates tales of unusual nature, beings that will expand ones’ imagination and incidences that are inexplicable. He taps into humanity’s unconscious terrors, urges and desires; buried deep in our subconscious minds.
Strange creatures veiled as human beings stroll the earth. Revolting and dreadful to the human eye. Times when men’s minds are crazed with dreadful thoughts forged from hell other than the human brain; the creatures appear. The unforeseen comes to life and one is not able to believe that such events could ever exist or happen. Men are shocked at such occurrences as they run for their dear lives to escape the sight of such beings. Question is will they make it out alive ones marked? Get ready for a stupefying experience to receive the answers.
I was elated into a world of different thoughts and imagery, as the author brings out the stories in a clear and defined manner in his narration. The tales keep one guessing and anticipating for what will happen next. I enjoyed the unexpected turn of events on The Lady in the Woods and was amazed at how things took a turn at George’s life. I did not feel much connection with the characters because of the summarized history of the life they lived. The author could have expounded on this.
The stories contain profanities, sexual scenes and horrific creatures. Audiences under the age of eighteen are not eligible to read the book. Audiences who enjoy horror stories with bizarre endings will enjoy the book. Interested audiences should also know that some of the characters in the story exhibit psychopathic traits and murder is prominent in the stories.
I would rate The Devils Eclipse by Christopher William 3 out of 4 stars for the way he builds engrossing stories on the minds of readers. I would have given the author a rating of 4 out of 4 stars had he expounded more on the characters’ lives. A deeper explanation on how the characters lived their lives would have created a deeper connection with the reader, which would have brought a sense of care on what happens to them. Personally, I did not feel any care for the characters however, the author painted a clear picture on how the events occurred in a fascinating way.
