Review: Fractured Time by Alan Draven

4 Stars
Fractured Time

Author: Alan Draven
Pages: 388
Book Description from Goodreads
"Donovan Vicar is a "feeler"-a man who feels the vibrations of people around him. One October evening on his way home, he bumps into a man that he senses to be particularly evil, and he embarks on a late bus ride to seek him out. As the empty bus leaves the station in foggy Bitternest, Louisiana, Donovan falls asleep. When he wakes up, he is disoriented by what he sees-he is still in Bitternest, only his surroundings seem more primitive and unfamiliar. He is shocked to realize that he has traveled back in time to the year 1957 and that the city is plagued by the mysterious disappearances of numerous young women.

Everything points to Timothy Crane, a man alleged to have many shady associations and rumored to be dabbling in black magic. Aided by Ritchie Campbell, a young man with his share of dark secrets, and his old friend Edgar Ward, Donovan finds himself caught up with the events unfurling in Bitternest. He is slowly coming to terms with his gifts as a "feeler" and only begins to get a glimpse of all the power brewing inside him.

The stakes are raised and everything culminates into one fateful night leaving them less than a week to figure out what Crane is really up to and how to stop him. It might also be Donovan's only chance to ever get back home..."

This book happens to have a mixture of things that I like: Time-travel. It is always interesting to see how an author will deal with it, what he or she will bring to the table and I have to say that after mostly reading novels where a woman is sent back to 1800s, ect. that this was a good change-up and I loved the way the author built around it.

Horror. This is something that I am really getting into at the moment; I have bought at least 15 horror books in the last month or so. I really liked his concepts the 'monsters' so to speak and I have to say that while I was reading, I got the willies a couple of times; like when your watching a good horror movie and you think what if I turned around right now, what would I see?

Paranormal is another thing this novel had that I liked. Magic + wizards + monsters = Paranormal horror to me. Again magic like time-travel and creepy monsters (lol) is something every author can do different and I really liked how the author explained the gifts that his characters had, it made them much more believable to me.

You definitely see character development with our main characters, Vicar, Ritchie and others in this novel also. The only thing that I have to say kind of bothered me was how the ending, before the epilogue, felt kind of rushed to me.

I have also learned that Alan Draven had another novel that is centered in Bitternest named Bitternest. I did not know this at the time I started reading and I am curious now if this is the second book in a series or if the just happen to be set in the same place. Though there was no reference that I could tell to a first novel.

I really enjoyed this book, it was overall a very good novel and I am curious as to what will happen next. The author definitely leaves it open at the end so that we know more is to come in Bitternest, Louisiana or 'might' come in a next novel.

I think I would recommend this novel to anyone who is interesting in anything that involves horror and time-travel along with I think paranormal as well.

*I received an Ebook copy of this book for free to review from the author.
