Thief of Souls by J.G. Faherty

Thief of Souls - JG Faherty

I received a free copy of Thief of Souls from the publisher in return for an honest review.

Thief of Souls didn't live up to my expectations, I was really looking forwards to this one after reading the blurb. The blurb promises a demon inhabited idol, scary goings on at night, nightmares and a demon terrorising and playing games with Perry.

I was expecting a creepy atmospheric and scary read, it didn't happen. What I got instead was a book where most of the story was spent accompanying Perry breaking into houses and visiting the pawn shop, rather than the scares and atmosphere I was hoping for. Nothing really happened that had Perry considering it was something more sinister till the very end. Right up until the very last moment he didn't even realise there was a demon and even then, those final scenes were a bit of a let down. Spaghetti sauce, really?

I feel like this one had potential but it just didn't get there.
