Beware the Spider didn’t win The BookLife Prize for 2019, but their reviewer gave me a great write-up, calling it “exciting … something different … a fun and quick read.”
Here’s the entire review.
Plot: The plot of Haase’s story is quite exciting. It’s something different, especially with Sebastion’s secret power that everyone wants to use, and the memorable events that happen to him throughout the story.
Prose/Style: Haase does an effective job describing his settings, characters, and plot. His writing style makes for a fun and quick read.
Originality: Haase’s story is original, from exotic locations, demons, and a curse/power that its main character Sebastion possesses.
Character Development: Haase’s characters are well developed and interesting. The main character, nature photographer Sebastion, is likable, as is his girlfriend Amanda. Minor characters like T add more to the story, with his sensible but sometimes jealous personality.
Mr. Haase’s recent book BEWARE the SPIDER pulled me right in to the paranormal world of scary! I enjoy descriptions of the characters and their environment…especially if it has to do with travel and this recent read has all of these. Loved the plot and am not an arachnophob and am rather fascinated by insects so his setting,time travel, plot and character development were hits for me. Looking forward to the next black orchid adventure!
