The overview of the story had an element of mystery and intrigue, hinting at something different about an ancient evil. This kind of plot always appeals to me, so I’m glad I requested a review of the story.
From the beginning, I was thrown into the plot which commenced in a time from a few centuries ago. All the characters were solid despite some having a short appearance in the story. The reason they felt solid and established is because the author enriched his story from their POVs.Although I wasn’t scared as I read the pages, I found Unknown creepy and intriguing enough to read throughout the night. My goodness, there were some ruthless blood thirsty “creatures” in the story, so be aware. *wink.wink*I can imagine this story as an evening TV series with spectacular visual effects where ancient evil beings are actively seeking humans for their survival. Let’s put it this way…After reading this story I’m striking out my dream to visit the Himalayas and a few other places… hehehe.
The romance in this gruesome and eerie story added a new depth to the story, albeit I was given me some breaks at times, so I like the roller coaster journey of reading Unknown. In between feeling spooked as I chose to read the story in the middle of the night when everyone was asleep, I couldn’t help but smile at times because of the cute romance. I truly enjoyed myself.
Great plot, intriguing rich POVs, well established characters even though some didn’t survive the whole story, an immersive experience, all contribute to Unknown becoming a good story for escapism. Would I recommend this story to eerie paranormal thriller readers? Yes, I definitely would.
