I am delighted to be part of the blog tour for The Sowing Season which is the second novel in the Wildermoor Apocalypse trilogy. You can see my review for Acolyte which is the first novel by clicking here.
Seeds of change will grow. Just add blood.
The chilling sequel to Acolyte – Wildermoor Apocalypse: Book One.
After witnessing her lover’s brutal ritualistic murder, Katrina Childs returns home a shell of her former self. Her only hope is of the child growing inside of her.
A mysterious old man appears in the village one night with a warning for her brother, Ewan: Protect Katrina and her child at all costs. Lucas Stamwell will return to claim them both.
Jacob Crowe is living a simple life, surrounded by the tranquillity and protection that only Wildermoor can bring. Until the night that his wife is torn away from him by dark spirits, as he is stalked by a hooded phantom. Jacob is saved from The Reaper’s clutches by Truman Darke, who has returned to Wildermoor ten years after he was abducted by The Council of Eternal Light.
The Council’s plans for a new world enter the next terrifying phase as The Reaper grows his demon army, by setting his umbras free to claim souls to add to their ranks…and feast on those that are left. A process that He refers to as ‘The Sowing Season’.
DI Thomas Laing is forced to aid their case, having had to choose between his family and his future.
As the planned apocalypse rapidly approaches, the Council’s own security is compromised by a rookie journalist interested in the whereabouts – and importance – of the mysterious Patient 29; a man said to be housed within the walls of St. Dymphna’s Research Facility.
To find the answers to save their future, they must all look to their past.
The Sowing Season is the second novel in The Widlermore Apocalypse trilogy. I really enjoyed Acolyte which is the first one and would certainly recommend reading it first to see how it all started.
I have to say I was well and truly hooked right from the start with this novel. The first couple of chapters are just brilliant and all I can say is that I am glad that I hadn’t just eaten!
With chapters that flick between 1684 and 2012, the reader is well and truly transported to two very different time scales. The whole story is steeped in darkness and felt very eerie.
Wildermoor is certainly not a place that I would ever want to find myself living in. The police can literally not cope with the amount of cases of missing people that is occurring there. It’s as if they have just vanished into thin air.
I really felt for Jacob, he hasn’t had the easiest of times but is happily settled with the love of his life. Unfortunately for him he doesn’t seem to be destined to live happily ever after. Not only does he need to cope with his wife being taken from him, he has to try and come to terms with the darkness that seems set to take over his life.
This really is quite a fast paced and gripping read. The tension that builds throughout the story is just brilliant. There is quite a lot of action in the story and it certainly has you on the edge of your seat.
Really can not wait for the last book in the trilogy to come out now as The Sowing Season has re ignited the fire inside of me and left me wanting more.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
The Sowing Season is out now and available from Amazon.
