The BookViral Review:

A fiendishly subtle horror thriller, Terrain of Lost Souls proves a goosebump-inducing exercise in suspense that uses your imagination to scare you silly. It’s an elegantly crafted read, balanced between the psychological and the supernatural and as with previous releases in the Nightshade Chronicles Hains gets extra credit for his underpinning research.

Far too often novels that deal with the supernatural feel artificially manipulated with authors jerking their readers’ chains as a lazy substitute for constructing an intelligent plot. Terrain of Lost Souls however is so well written that its narrative sits right on the edge of insanity and carries us along with it.

Beginning with Cole’s bloody battlefield experience in Vietnam Hains achieves the difficult task of creating believable and sympathetic characters in graphic and gritty detail whilst at the same time suggesting dimensions that readers can only guess at.

What Hains wants to do is to evoke the feeling of a psychological state in his readers so that we can feel what Cole feels and as with his previous releases in the Nightshade Chronicles he achieves this with ease. He wants us to know Cole’s turmoil, his feelings of sadness and despair, his highs and lows. This is what makes Cole Nightshade such a strong protagonist and one who would transfer well to motion pictures.

Another superb release in the Nightshade Chronicles series Terrain of Lost Souls sees Hains delivering another corker of a read. It is unreservedly recommended!

Ignition 2084 is an angry beast with a crazy collide-o-scope plot that bristles with intelligence. A kinetic combination of visual style, amazingly detailed characterizations and original combat tech in ‘Hanzo Gear’ and the Reikiken “Aura Sword” that practically jumps off the page!
