Goddess of the Wild Thing by Paul DeBlassie III – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really didn’t know what to expect when I picked up Paul DeBlassie III’s Goddess of the Wild Thing. It stands out from other books I have read as a rich paranormal fantasy that draws on spiritual and psychological ideas to create a fascinating world and gripping story.
DeBlassie’s descriptive writing particularly caught my attention, with the level of detail and vivid language used really painting a picture. At times, I felt this slowed down the progress of the story or made it hard to keep up, but at others it really painted a picture for me.
The central characters are a group of four women – Eve, Shirley, Tanya and Samantha. It’s nice reading a book where the characters are a bit older and have experienced more in their lives. The characters are strong and not afraid to disagree with each other which leads to some interesting conflicts. Although it’s a story about love, it’s good to have such a focus on friendships that outlast the ups and downs of romantic affairs.
For me, this is a four star book. I found it very interesting, and it was good to read something a bit different! I’d recommend it to fans of the paranormal who are after a book that will keep them on the edge of their seat.

Winner of the Independent Press Award and the NYC Big Book Award, Goddess of the Wild Thing is a dramatic tale of one woman’s spiritual journey where magical happenings, unexpected turns of fate, and unseen forces impact her ability to love and be loved. Eve Sanchez, a scholar of esoteric studies, is driven into unreal dimensions of horror and hope as she encounters a seductive and frightening man, criminal lawyer Sam Shear.

Sam introduces Eve to a supernatural world in which the wicked powers of a surrogate mother’s twisted affection threaten love and life. Struggling to sort through right from wrong, frightened yet determined, Eve nears despair.

In the mystic realm of Aztlan del Sur, a mythopoeic land of hidden horrors and guiding spirits, Eve, with three friends and a wise old woman, is caught in an age-old struggle about love—whether bad love is better than no love— and discovers that love is a wild thing.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Paul DeBlassie III was a completely new author to me when I picked up Goddess of the Wild Thing. I was drawn in by the eye-popping cover art and the minimal but gripping description of the novel. I will not lie, I really wanted to love this book. I had high hopes but it just fell short for me. I had a really hard time wanting to push through the first 30% of the novel. It just was very slow to build up and get to that point where I was hooked. Once it did though, it was a solid four star read.

In Goddess of the Wild Thing we get the story of Eve. Now Eve has not had much luck in the love department. She struggles with the day to day monotony that most can relate to. Everything will change when she meets Sam. Will Sam be the one that will break her bad luck with love? What will happen to her everyday life when he introduces her to a whole new supernatural world?

Overall there is several different things going on in this book. We have the love triangle of sorts, fantasy and sci-fi type scenarios, and of course the ideals of good vs. bad, and good love vs. bad love. What will ultimately win out in the end? You will have to read for yourself to see just how it all comes together in the exploding final chapters.

The Unholy by Paul DeBlassie III – Review by Jenni Bishop

The UnholyThe Unholy by Paul DeBlassie III
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Unholy by Paul DeBlassie is psychological thriller about good versus evil. The story is mysterious due to its Native American and Mexican lore and mystical nature. The twisted religious cult was intriguing and there is a lot of action and suspense, evil and darkness to keep me reading because I needed to know what happened.

A delusion of grandeur is a person’s belief that they are someone other than who they are, such as a supernatural figure or a celebrity and that is exactly what is the basis of this story.

If you are looking for a book that includes psychological thrills, twists and turns then grab a copy.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The Unholy by Paul DeBlassie III is an urban fantasy with mystery, suspense, drama, American Indian beliefs/culture, religion, good vs evil, and some supernatural elements.
Claire is on a journey of discovery- hoping to find herself as well as tracking down her mother’s murderer. Along the way she finds a lot more than she had bargained for- secrets are revealed, truths are uncovered, and darkness and horror are confronted.
I was very intrigued by the elements of this story, having read some of Mr. DeBlassie’s work before I was curious about where he would lead us on this adventure. He piqued my interest right from the get go and I zipped through the pages reading as quickly as my eyes would allow to discover what would happen.
I liked Claire and was rooting for her the whole way through. All the characters were well developed, and all contributed to the overall storyline.
I wonder what Mr. DeBlassie has in store for us next?

Thank you, Mr. DeBlassie!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Goddess Of The Wild Thing by Paul DeBlassie III is a paranormal fantasy psychological thriller. The synopsis had me intrigued and I liked the concept because it was full of everything I enjoy reading and I must admit the story was not what I thought it would be. The story is full of witchcraft and mystery, darkness and evil vs good, folklore and the mystics. For me the book was a little too busy and it took me a little while to connect to the story and with the characters. Once I found that connection I had to keep reading until I knew the outcome. This story is certainly full of surprises and many twist and turns.

If you enjoy something a little dark, evil vs good, magic and witches then this one’s for you. Keep and open mind……

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Goddess of The Wild Thing by Paul DeBlassie III is a fantasy-thriller story with some romance mixed in. This is my first story by this author and I can’t wait to see what else he has for us. I enjoyed his writing style that pulled me in from the beginning. His attention to details where descriptive and made a situation or item stand out more. His characters where creative and interesting. They will take you on some twists and turns that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat just waiting to see what will happen next. You never know what you might find lurking in the next page. This is the story of Eve who has had some bad experiences with men and has pretty much given up on love. Then she meets him, will he be able to change her opinion on love? Eve and her three friends go on a journey of discovering if one should just take what they can get good or bad. They meet some wicked witch who has a obsession with a man that could be threatening and put lives in danger. Eve struggles with deciding if she should take a chance on love but a battle between good and evil just might make it an easy choice for her. I enjoyed the characters in this story as well as the secondary characters. These four women has kind of a strange relationship with each other as they are friends but don’t always seem to like each other. They each have their own qualities that make them strong characters. They will just take you on a journey to find love that will leave you wanting to know more. I highly recommend this story as it is an easy flowing story that you won’t be able to put down until the last page. Find out if these four women find the love they are looking for.
