The BookViral Review:
Dark, edgy and compelling Dusks and Dawns proves an imaginative read for Supernatural Fiction fans with Ralph not only telling a superb story but ably managing to avoid the spectre of predictability which seems the blight of the genre.
There are few things more rewarding in Supernatural Fiction than good plot twists, but get it wrong and authors risk leaving their readers feeling swindled. Ralph, however, pitches it just right through multiple character perspectives, giving us just enough to ensure momentum doesn’t falter whilst narrative elements of gore and demonic scheming are nicely balanced.
Central to Ralph’s plot is Jacob Miller and it’s through him that Ralph give us something different. And these days, that’s the sort of thing all readers should be demanding. He’s caustic, conflicted, disenchanted and energetic and through Ralph’s nicely nuanced prose we feel his sense of isolation amongst the pious population of New Hope.
Perhaps more important though is that Ralph has a firm grasp on his genre material. There’s no outlandish silliness that flat out annoys many of the genre’s readers and when you stand back it’s refreshing to find that his plot stands up to scrutiny to give us a tremendously entertaining read! Not only maintaining psychological tension but encouraging a little reflection on the true nature of evil.
A powerful start to Ralph’s God-fearing People series, Dusk and Dawns with its nail-biting cliff hanger ending is highly recommended!
