Four ‘Til Late – Tomorrow Comes Book Tour
by Eric Garrison
Book received free for an honest review.
A paranormal, sort of tense yet at times kinda campy roadtrip story.
It is funny, this book started out kind of silly and easy going, I thought it would be a paranormal light, with ghosts and crazy things happening on this road trip with guys named Gonzo and Jimbo and Brett. (one of these things is not like the other…) I think the cover also led me to thing that it would be more of a scooby doo-type of story. They even drive a van they dub “soccer mom”.
Anyway, it starts out that way. The guys have known each other a long time, there is history there. They see some strange things, make fun of each other and drive, drive, drive. They are going to New Orleans for a few days, are going to pick up Brett’s ex-girlfriend and Jimbo’s girlfriend keeps calling and harassing him for leaving her behind.
But it isn’t long before the things they see begin interacting with them and a very real possibility emerges that these ghosts aren’t entirely friendly. In fact, one of the characters seems to be the main target and the results can easily become deadly. So it gets pretty serious, while surrounded with a little bit of crazy. So since that little bit of bizarre is there, you are pretty sure things will never go south…pretty sure anyway. I was a bit upset that things could get deadly, but it was a super fun read. The characters have a great comraderie, the eerie bits are explained, and the paranormal fits within our mundane world. Makes it a bit freakier because there are reasons for this stuff that work in our world. Creepy yet charming in a way!
Anyway, a fun easy paranormal kind of horror story and I just read that a second story with the same characters is in the works, fun! Enjoyable and and well written with an interesting take on some paranormal goings on and it never loses its sense of humor, it just starts offering more serious consequences. 3.5 stars of ghostly fog that try to lead you astray into the middle of a cornfield.
