“Reign of Evil”

Weston Ochse

I called the previous books in this series goofy but fun and compared them to comics books.  If the earlier books were like the comic books of my youth, this one is more like a modern, dark, comic.  The dark turn — the fiancé of a major character is brutally murdered in the first chapter — took away a lot of what I liked about this series.  It’s a decent horror novel, but not as much fun as its predecessors.
