Book: Acheron Highway - The Second Jonathan Shade Novel by Gary Jonas
|4.7 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Gary Jonasabout this book: Acheron Highway is the second of the Jonathan Shade urban fantasy novels. In this one, a woman wants to hire Jonathan to deal with a necromancer who's been stalking her. The guy wanted to win her heart and when that didn't work, he stole it. Literally. Miranda asks Shade to find the guy and steal back her heart.
There are plenty of fun things in the book--zombies, an army of skeletons, a remote viewing club, wizards, and of course Esther the ghost and Kelly Chan.
Writing this book was quite an experience. I wanted to explore the nature of friendship as the family we choose, and how far we'll go for the people in our lives. In the previous book, Jonathan had lost someone close to him, and when I wrote this novel, my father had just passed away. Part of this book was an escape from my own reality. But my real goal here was to write an ending that nobody would ever forget. In my own humble opinion, I think I nailed it.
