Private investigator James Hurts, who prides himself on not being bested by any other man, is happy when his former partner Tom Taylor decides to work with him again. Tom’s mother, Amanda, and the vampire Mr. Williams are a happy family, except Hurts does not like Mr. Williams much. Together, after dealing with leprechauns who love nothing more than gold and repairing shoes, they embark on the adventure of saving The Chosen One from vampire children who want to increase their power after sacrificing her on her birthday, Halloween. However, it is the start of coming events that involve vampires, leprechauns, and Satan himself. Can they stop Satan from impregnating a child, or is he too powerful for them?
The 13th Hour, Again, by Alan Zacher is a chilling story that combines mystery, suspense, occult fantasy, and an eerie plot. The author’s writing is smooth, and the dark suspense kept me on edge. From the intelligent and headstrong Amanda to the lonely but goodhearted Hurts, the characters are well-written. Zacher provided great detail so that I was able to clearly imagine what was going on. I thoroughly enjoyed the character of Mr. Williams and would have loved for him to have a bigger presence in the book.
Zacher takes readers on a roller coaster ride with the battles and fights. Just when you think there is no hope, something will happen that changes the course of things in the blink of an eye. These characters are survivors and will not go down without a fight.
The 13th Hour, Again, is a gripping fantasy horror novel that young adults and adults interested in mystery and detective genres would find interesting. The writing style, character development, and the air of mystery maintained throughout the book will keep readers hooked.
