A Perfect Mesh

Anybody can take a mystery and throw in some magic or cram a romantic subplot into a shoot-em-up thriller, but it takes serious skill to truly blend multiple genres into one cohesive story. Robert Duperre has done that here.

Soultaker follows brothers Abe, Meesh, and Shade on an unforgettable adventure that has all the fantasy, horror, science fiction, and action you can ask for. The post-apocalyptic landscape is unlike anything you’ve seen outside your worst nightmares, and yet the

What I didn’t like:

The story moves slow in the beginning. Really slow. It’s not only the speed of the story either, it kind of wanders a little. I’m lead from place to place never knowing if anything that I’m reading is ever going to have a place anytime

I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.

I had two attempts at reading hoping that it would improve but in the end I just gave up.

This was not for me.

Disclosure: The reviewer received a review copy of this book via Netgalley.

I admit it: The cover art snagged me. It just looks like a thrilling sci-fi adventure cover. There’s one of the Knights Eternal in his armor, with his railgun, ready for action. Mr. Duperre’s writing lives up to the promise of the cover.

Soultaker takes place about a thousand years after the apocalyptic "Rising" event wiped out modern civilization. Three "brothers" comprise the Knights Eternal who keep the peace in the
