In The Full Moon Slayer by Michel Vamrell, Alice loses her whole family and her dog when they are killed by a huge beast. This happens after she moves her husband and daughter to a small town on the outskirts of Indianapolis to be an art professor at the local Community College.
She was not aware that for the past 18 years, someone has died at every full moon in her neighborhood. The police claims that these deaths began when 18 wolves escaped from a research facility in the area.
A local news reporter, Nicole Richards, tells Alice that she does not believe that the slayings were done by wolves.
Although I found the story interesting, Vamrell’s writing style made this read unappealing to me. The level of detail when narrating the actions and movements of the characters was such that it was excruciating to follow.
I imagine the author’s intention was to create suspense, but as a reader I felt unpleasantly teased instead; in short, although interesting story, it was not an easy and enjoyable read for me.
I find it very hard to rate The Full Moon Slayer as it could had been written better so that its interesting plot moved faster instead of getting lost with insignificant details.
I give it three stars out of five.
