Geek Chocolate Reviews Hendrix & Nelsen’s The Book

Geek Chocolate recently reviewed The Book, which comes out in December, and it looks appears they enjoyed it! Read an excerpt from the review below, and be sure to CLICK HERE to read the review in full.

The dialogue especially is well written, and considering the number of characters involved each of their voices, as with their art, is distinct. Conversations feel believable and, despite the requirement at times for it to be expositional in nature exchanges never feel forced, which is of great credit to Hendrix’s script.

Once into its stride the story reads as a chase, like a superior teen slasher film with all the required elements present such as young lust, teenagers trespassing on creepy settings and very gory ends. These combine well and help make for a fun and bloody read.

Thank you to Geek Chocolate for the review and, again, be sure to CLICK HERE to read it in full.

ARCANA LINK: http://arcana.com/view_issue.php?id=457
ISBN: 978-1-926914-68-8
DESCRIPTION: En route to Italy, a group of American tourists learn of a series of DIY travel guides, nicknamed “The Book”. These unofficial guides are collected and updated with first-hand experiences by the travelers themselves. Different “Books” scatter the continent, telling of the best lodging, deals, and “off the grid” adventures from sight seeing to local folklore for anyone clever enough to find them. A local cult, practitioners of Sanctus Letum, the Holy Death, disrupts the American’s plans for adventure when they hide pages from the Dark Book, Shaitan, in one of the travel guides. The friends are lead down a path of secret religion, death, resurrection, and demonology.
