URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Death's Disciples - J Robert King

Release Date: 06/01/11



When she woke up in the hospital, she could barely remember getting on the flight, let alone the terrorist bomb of which she was the only survivor.

But she can hear the voices in her head, for they are the spirits of the dead passengers. They cannot rest until they have delivered their terrifying message: the terrorists know she survived.

And they’re coming for her!


J Robert King is the type of author who lets you think that you have your finger on the pulse and know what’s coming, just before he pulls the rug out from underneath you. That’s exactly what you get with this title and the author makes no apologies for keeping you up in the air.

It is beautifully written, it has some great prose and backed with a story arc that really does leave you wondering where you turned into the Twilight Zone from the Outer Limits. Whilst this is absolutely amazing what King does well is create characters that you care about and once he’s gotten his claws into you, its pretty darn hard for him to let you go. All in a fun read and one that really played with the imagination so much so that it just has to be made into a film.
