SUMMARY: Things are looking up for twelve-year-old Cole Nightshade. After surviving a deranged nurse’s attack in Saint Edwards Mental Asylum, he’s discovered family he never knew existed. Cole’s cousin saves him from another potentially disastrous foster-care placement by inviting him to stay with her and her young son in the small town of New River. His living situation settled at last, Cole hopes he can put his traumatic past behind him.

The BookViral Review: Genre – Occult Horror

Readers familiar with Hains will know he writes genuine horror stories. Not manufactured ones made up from the recycled plots of other best sellers. He writes novels in which the horror grows out from the characters themselves and Sins Of The Father is up there with his best to date.

We were first introduced to Cole in Nightshades Requiem, an atmospheric and genuinely chilling introduction to his Nightshade Chronicles series and fans will find much of the same in Book 2 with Hains again demonstrating his gift for narrative and character development.

Cole isn’t another stereotyped product of the horror production line with a tacked-on crisis. His story does more than thrill, frighten, and captivate; it sends the imagination into overdrive, reminding us of everything a horror story should be. A harrowing story of unthinkable family tragedy that veers into the realm of the supernatural where resentment, trauma, guilt and long-held secrets seep into the roots of a tight-knit community to threaten it from the inside out.

With its galvanizing plot and the promise of more to come, Sins Of The Father suggests Hains is onto a winner with his Nightshades Requiem series. It is recommended without reservation.

How Science Fiction Authors Are Shaping Our Future

As fantastical as science fiction seems, there is often something familiar about the incredible concepts dreamt up by its writers. In fact, not only familiar at times but eerily accurate about future advances. Is this some kind of scientific prophesy? Is there something sinister going on?
