Curtain Call: A Death Metal by: Nathan Squiers
Life was good and the future was bright for up-and-coming heavy metal band, Bloodtones. With a steadily-growing fan-base, the five members looked forward to a promising career in the music industry. And then things went to hell. Soon after a strange sighting, the Bloodtones' lead singer, Bekka, finds herself capable of the impossible and in mortal danger from otherworldly forces that catch even the non-human members of the band off guard. With their rock-solid future rapidly crumbling before their eyes, the Bloodtones find themselves struggling for not only their music... but their very lives.
I received this book from the author to give an honest review.
Nathan has once again wrote an amazing story. This is the first I have ever read about a rock band that deals with the paranormal and I truly enjoyed it.
The rock band Bloodtones is not your average band. There is a werewolf named David, a vampire named Will, a sorcerer named Derek and two humans Bekka and Brian. What a very unique set of friends and band mates who are coming up in the death metal scene. With Curtain Call you not only get the story but some wickedly disturbing poems as well.
The way Nathan describes David's change into a werewolf and the way he described the people who changed after the evil were inside of them, was terrific. A lot of detail was written in and it had me cringing!
Bekka (which I love the spelling of the name) while performing gets a glimpse of shadows from the other side. Which starts off the adventure of Bekka's friends not only stopping at nothing to protect her but also helping her find a way to get rid of them.
The characters were very likable and I found myself loving the sarcastic talk between them all. One part in the book that had me laughing was on page 162 when Will was being sarcastic to Brian.
"Will shook his head, "You're going to take her word on that just cuz you two are bumping nasties now?" That is one term I have not heard in years.
Curtain call is very fast paced, with great twists that will make you keep reading.
If you like the paranormal, evil, romance, friendship, ass-kicking then this is the book for you.
My rating: 5 wine glasses
