    From the first sentence of this book, I was hooked…and the more I read the better it got.

    How Mr. Franklin could come up with such a new and fresh story is just amazing. I love the way the book starts with the curse and then it explodes. What a great mind Mr. Franklin has…to not only imagine such a exciting adventure but to also put it into a book that makes you feel like you are in the middle of all that is going on. This book scared me but I couldn’t put it down wanting to know what was going to happen next.

    t is brilliant the way that the author has woven together so many monsters and it works. If you like vampire stories it has it, if you like werewolf stories it has that also, or demons or witches or voodoo hoodoo it has all that also…and it all works/flows together seamlessly.

    I loved this book and can’t wait for the next story.

    I enjoyed the book also when I read it. I think the story has a great new spin on it which I sometimes find hard to find…a new twist, new monsters. There isn’t anything wrong with a rerwrite on a famous story or characters as long as it is good…and with new twists.

    Don has written a great story and I have been waiting for Volume 2…since completing this one. You can tell that Don pays attention to detail and I am sure with this storyline it takes time just insuring that no details are missed.

    It is a wonderful read don’t miss it.


    • Thanks, Melissa. I’m delighted you enjoyed Don’s story. It’s a fantastic thrillfest with an edge of darkness that makes it stand head and shoulders above the crowd. The story of the Reaper’s Walk is far from over!
