M.J. Hudon’s Review of The Van Helsing Paradox

Wow! What a lovely review from M.J. Hudon for The Van Helsing Paradox. This is my latest dark fantasy release that follows the life and times of Clara Grey, a child who grows up to hunt things that go bump in the night!

Her review is simple, straight forward and beautifully done. The following is an except from the review:

Clara Grey notices things. Things nobody else will allow themselves to see. It is this ability, this willingness to believe, that makes Miss Grey the perfect candidate for training to be a monster hunter.

This one is my favourite:

Well written and smart, The Van Helsing Paradox is a fresh take on monster hunting and monster hunters.

Four-Star - Well written with a great plot -I enjoyed reading The Van Helsing Paradox. It was very well written and the plot kept me interested throughout.

5-Stars – 23 May 19 – Entertaining and delightful story

This is a very creative, well thought out story

4-Stars - The Van Helsing Paradox, A Review - This is a very creative, well thought out story. The author has captured the flavour of the time well. It must have taken a lot of research, as the descriptions of people and places are almost like you're there. But there were parts of the story where the author seemed to leave out explanations of what was happening. Other than that, an interesting story with a great main character.

4-Stars – 23 May 19 – The Van Helsing Paradox, A Review

If you enjoy vampire tales, Indiana Jones, detective mysteries and all of that with a slice of horror, this book’s for you.

4-Stars - Horror meets Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones - With a strong female lead, The Van Helsing Paradox is a complex and detailed read in which the character investigates and fights against paranormal activity on Earth in the early part of the 20th Century. I enjoyed the story, despite being a little confused about genre and the flow of events. I am enthusiastic about picking up the next book to continue to follow Clara on her adventures, and also to see if any of the characters that make cameos, such as Evelyn, return. If you enjoy vampire tales, Indiana Jones, detective mysteries and all of that with a slice of horror, this book’s for you.

4-Stars – 27 May 19 – Horror meets Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones

Of note, two of the reviews were removed from Amazon.com. The reasons for which are unknown, and only found out when making this post, because my screen captures of reviews found, did not match what exists on the site now. Either way, I can’t complain. These are unsolicited and positive reviews, what more can a writer ask for?
