Flight of the Tarantula Hawk - A Lance Underphal Mystery by Michael Allan Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The best part about being a beta reader is that you literally get a sneak peak into the author's next book. When Mike Scott approached me about reading the second Lance Underphal book, I was thrilled. Was I disappointed you ask? Not a single bit. If I were to compare Book 1 and Book 2, I'll say Book 1 was my favourite story and character wise. Where writing is concerned, Book 2 is definitely the better of the two. He plays more mind games with the reader and I abso-bloody-lutely loved it.
Secondary characters were a bigger deal in this book as the plot focuses on the characters instead of the other way around. As the plot comes to light so does Lance Underphal's ability as the main character. Letting go was an important theme in Flight of the Tarantula Hawk. Lance is more tolerant of his 'curse' than in the Book 1 but will he completely ever accept it without any reservation? Book 3 and more to come I guess. *hint *hint
Would I recommend this read? You bet. However, if you are someone who is easily perturbed by murder and psychic occurrences, then this MAY not be the best book for you.
Offensive content?: Based on language, violence and settings I would say recommended for readers 15 years and older.
