it was amazing

Written in a style reminiscent of Stephen King/Peter Straub collaborative novels "The Talisman" and "Black House", "Discoredia" is a book that gets the heart pumping, and the pace increases, transporting the reader to a night out at a top-notch rave.
The characters are well-developed and typical of the kind of people one would expect to see frequenting a rave.
Dodgy business practices; drug dealing; gut-wrenching violence; murder; heroes; people you would happily punch in the face all day if you met them; ancient supernatural forces; a mysterious serial killer, and so many unfortunate, innocent victims. "Discoredia" has it all.
All of the elements in the book combine wonderfully to create a delicious and very deadly cocktail that has a mind-altering effect on the reader, not unlike the mysterious Pandemonium pills central to the story, and the New Year's Eve finale is deserving of a screen adaptation.

J.C. Michael I was wondering, was there a particular character you'd "punch in the face all day" if you met them?

David Eccles Definitely Wendy, James, lol.

David Eccles Definitely Wendy, James, lol.

J.C. Michael She's certainly one of the less likeable ones. Unfortunately there are a lot of Wendys around.

Really pleased you enjoyed it, and thanks for such a great review.

David Eccles Oh god, yes. Lots of Wendy-type annoyances here. I'd say it's one in three where I live, lol. And they sport cowboy hats too! Also pink!
I loved it, James. M.C. O'Neill is reading it at the moment, and he's loving it! No doubt you'll be getting a glowing review from him too.
