Story Flow: 5 out of 5



Where to begin with this one? Hmmm, well let's see. Jess is a young woman who has been haunted for years with recurring nightmares. This one image that plays over and over in her dreams that both frightens her and intrigues her. With the encouragement of one of her teachers, she decides to have hypnotherapy so that she can travel back through time with the help of Past Life Regression.
It is after this she gains a little clarity, but this new information she has takes Jess and her friends a little further than she thought it would. To Ireland.

It is while in Ireland that things really spin out of control and shit hits the fan for Jess and her friends. An innocent night out after a strange day sightseeing puts our group of friends into freefall and starts the ball rolling in the upcoming fight.

This is a tale of love, loss, murder, betrayal and getting a healthy dose of 'exactly what you deserve'.

The characters are well thought out and there are some amazingly animated ones like Fr Jack (whom I love! - and if you do too then you will most certainly want to check out this author's short story Christ On A Bike.)

The setting is well described and leaves you feeling as if you are walking with them as they take the steps towards their fate.

The plot moves at a steady pace with next to no dragging and if I had to pick one hole in this it would be that I would have wanted to see more of Fr Jack and the Lads.

An excellent 2nd novel by the very talented D. J. Doyle.

Highly recommend.
