“When three lives intersect in an unsavory hotel with a bloody history, each will struggle to exorcise their personal demons, unaware that a bigger threat is looming . . . and waiting for the right moment to strike.
Like Joshua Gaylord and Daniel Kraus before him, author Erik Therme explores the angst of disconnected youth in his enthralling and powerful Roam. Therme’s darkly tinged novel is an unforgettable tale of three errant souls brutalized by life’s cruel circumstances, and a remarkable night of discovery and violence that will change them forever.”
If you are looking for something different then I may have saved you a search, this is so different from my last Erik Therme review of ‘Rest Haven’.
It’s not the way I would want to spend my birthday as Sarah’s evening goes from bad to worse. But through an unlikely ‘knight in shining armour’ Sarah embarks on a night she will never forget for quite some time.
The other main characters in the story are Kevin who gifts the biggest act of kindness he ever has. Then there is Scotty, what is wrong with him? Even he doesn’t know. There are a few other minor characters who pad out the story nicely.
The teller of this tale is Joe Hempel another new name to me and tells the story well, a name to watch.
A brilliant mysterious book, that your really not sure what is going to happen but makes you want to keep listening to find out.
