There really weren't very many moments that let up from an unrelenting pace driving us to a final showdown of human vs the supernatural; both equally determined to come out on top.
The villain of this read, Moloch, was steadfast in his goal of obtaining his wife and dishing out his brand of vengeance along the way. I felt that things never really varied and that there was no real conflict put in his path to at least make him stumb ...more
Unfortunately that's exactly the feeling this one left me with.
This is the only John Connolly book I've read that I can say that of and the first I haven't given at least 4 stars.
I'll no doubt soon return to the brilliant Charlie Parker series but this one seems equally highly rated and to me was underwhelming.
This book is similar to Connolly's Charlie Parker books (Parker even makes a cameo appearance), and it had the same dark feel and supernatural ...more

I really wanted to like this book but, half way through it, I started getting uneasy. The story was confusing, head hopping between dozens of different characters, many of whom were so flat out crazy it wasn't possible to believe that people this sick could walk down a street without sending every dog into complete freak out mode. The paranormal stuff wasn't adding up and made even less as the book progressed.
Six sociopaths, including one c ...more
Well, that was the plan. Until sun came down and I get to the last chapters in this book. In that moment, the silence became something creepy. So, so creepy. This book literally made my skin crawl and sent shivers down my spine. The ghosts... John Connolly invokes a trully scary scenario here and, at the same time, he has an unique way to evoke something scary and tender at ...more
Marianne dreams, as well. Dreams of running. Dreams of being chased by her past. Dreams of escape.
It is all going to come together on the island, where there are forces greater than either of them can imagine that have awakened and are hungry. Hungry for vengeance.
John Connolly does it again with another excellent supernatural thriller. This one ...more
Ok the story is quite a simple one - historic tragedy - restless souls - modern day repeat of events - restless souls rise once more. Ok so why the high praise if that is basically it - well I think this book was ...more

Hi characters are fleshed out with just the right mix of action and backstory that the whole book feels like an ensemble piece. His "Bad Men" reminded me of the those low-down bastards that makes Brian Azzarello's 100 Bullets such an kick in the pants series. Their quick wit ...more
As with some of his other novels, he entwines the supernatural with the unnaturally evil. Calling the chief bad guy Molloch is another of the biblical / devil references he seems to love.
The ending (or most of it) is never much in doubt. In fact it's fairly ...more
The title first.
- the french title ( mine) talks about the very old colonial people who were murdered in 1693.
The ghosts in this story. They are important in that story => If they weren't there, no actions in here.
- Bad Men (original title): as says Richie are the Moloch and his band ... they are bad men.
or .. i have another idea: Marianne and Moloch (from now) are .. Mmmhh how to say => The current "souls' from the murderer and his ...more
