Review: Night and Chaos by Naomi Clark

Ryan McCarthy fled Applied Paranormal Theory and Tactics, her father, and her lover six years ago, desperate to build life away from the weird science and supernatural experiments of her childhood. But everything she hoped to escape comes back with a vengeance when she's kidnapped and tortured by a possessed APTT employee out for revenge on the man responsible for his possession: Ryan's father.
Now, reunited with the lover she abandoned, Ryan is forced back into a world of danger and darkness she no longer understands, pursued by enemies with powers she can't fathom. But Ryan's not entirely powerless herself. She'll have to use every trick she knows - as well as the mystic gift she hates - to stay ahead of those enemies. And that will be easier said than done
My thought
When I got this eBook and looked at the number of pages, I said to myself, this book was too short to be a book. I wonder what kind of story that the author gave to the reader and ended in 152 pages only. I was just too naive. I never thought that I would find "To Be Continued" till I reached the last few pages. I can't help myself but disappointed. Because I have been hooked since the first chapter.

This book is a quick reading. It kept me wonder what happened next. I liked Ryan and what she had in her thought but not with the way she handled her relationship with Van. I have no idea why she made everything become so complicated. I almost lost my passion on this book because of it. Fortunately the few last chapters brought me back to the line.

I loved the idea about deva and asura. They have told me what those two things but Ijust found small portion. I wanted to know more. All part of this book which connected with APTT was my favorite . I also enjoyed every chapter with Ryan's shape-shifting. But again, the process was not detailed and I just found few of them.

Blood and Bones is the next title. I hope there will be a way to grab and read it. Too many question and I am just too curious with its ending.

Cover
I find no correlation between what they put in the cover and the story inside.

Author:
Naomi Clark lives in Cambridge and is a mild-mannered office worker by day, but a slightly crazed writer by night. She has a perfectly healthy obsession with giant sea creatures and a preference for vodka-based cocktails. When she's not writing, Naomi is probably either reading or watching 80s cartoon shows, and sometimes she manages to do all three at once.

She is the author of the acclaimed novel SILVER KISS, first in the Urban Wolf series from Queered Ficion, as well as the Shoregrave series, starting with AFTERLIFE, published by Damnation Books, and has just taken the plunge into indie writing with the novella NIGHT AND CHAOS.
