Divine Scream, by Benjamin Kane Ethridge, was a jolt of a read, with a deadline of August 31st. The story was about Jared Kare and his death. A Banshee or Utumm Resona, decided she was going to rescue him from a dreaded, predetermined eternity with a group called The Assembly. The Assembly are known for taking souls before they're expiration date, to devour and torture for endless years. And there is such thing as more...
Jared is chucked into a world where souls aren't just carried to Heaven or Hell, they're snatched and sometimes ripped apart. Even those on earth can be used on a whim, as long as the user follows the rules. With a sort of Overseer named "Banch", Jared is attacked by scouts, forced to reach into another dimension for green dirt and so much more.
This book was a fun yet knobby of a read. I loved the action right from jump. The story has our protagonists on the go from beginning to end and that makes for a fun ride. Banch's light humor was off yet workable but her use of pet names and endearments was confusing. Later that's explained, but then there's Jared.
He's as annoying as a wasp in your enclosed vehicle while driving 70 mph! He's weak, both emotionally and physically! He sees danger smack-dab in the face, yet he still whines like a baby and doesn't fight for himself! He faints, but he's got a back ticker- but no spoilers, yeah? Anyway, the stories fun, crazy, annoying and fast- all the things that make for a good read. Pick it up and give it a whirl! Have a great weekend and pick up an even greater book!📚
