Series: Demon Squad
Author: Tim Marquitz
Rating: 1 of 5 Stars
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Format: Kindle digital edition
Trig gets tricked, manipulated and whatnot into stopping a necromancer from raising Longinus, the soldier who stabbed Christ’s side. Only Longinus was a demon, so he got a butt load of power from that act. If he comes back, he’ll be top dog.
The first book was crass. I figured Marquitz was just seeing how this whole writing gig worked. This time around, his writing was just as crass, if not more and it is very apparent that this is a style choice by the author. So if you like your 500 year old half demon commenting on every pair of breasts and butt that he sees, running commentary on the state of his genitals at any given moment, and unrestrained lewdness and lustfulness, then this book is for you.
If, however, you have even an ounce of taste, restraint or class, this book will either secretly titillate you or disgust you. Considering the juvenile tone of everything, I’m betting on disgust.
The only positive is that now I can clear this series off my kindle and make room for another. That is damning praise indeed.
