Junior Inquisitor by Lincoln Farish

According to author Lincoln Farish “…this [writing books] isn’t about making money, it’s about the fame and glory and hot bodied female fans chanting my name…”  I get that… the making money part, not the hot bodied female fans chanting my name…

Publisher’s DescriptionBrother Sebastian is halfway up a mountain in Vermont, hell-bent on interrogating an old woman in a shack, when he gets the order to abandon his quest for personal vengeance. He has to find a missing Inquisitor, or, more likely, his remains. He’s reluctant, to say the least. Not only will he have to stop chasing the best potential lead he’s had in years, this job—his first solo mission—will mean setting foot in the grubby black hole of Providence, Rhode Island. And, somehow, it only gets worse…
If he’d known he would end up ass deep in witches, werewolves, and ogres, and that this mission would jeopardize not only his sanity but also his immortal soul, he never would’ve answered the damn phone.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (in other words, SPOILERS!)

First things first.  I recommend this book so highly that I get a nose bleed.  The author warned me that this story was “a little” dark.  I quirked an eyebrow at that message and thought, in my best Bugs Bunny voice, “Huh – he don’t know me very well, do he?”

We hunt monsters straight out of Revelations.

The protagonist is a monk.  The heroes are from an Order of the Catholic Church.  They stay hidden and eliminate witches and their minions.  In this book, witches are not good in any way, shape or form.  They prey on the innocent by sacrifice and they call on ogres, werewolves and Jotunn to “take care” of all of those who would oppose them.  I learned that magic has a very high price – kind of like taking meth – a witch’s (or warlock) body breaks down and all that is left is rot and the smell of corruption.  Those that can “see” can look through the glamour and notice the true self of the witch or warlock.

The protagonist talks to the reader and paints a picture so clearly that I was right there being tortured with him.  Um….yeah.  There is torture and it is viciously wicked.  I DO NOT wish learning that skill whatsoever.  This story, in some places, is not for the faint of heart.  It’s not scary where I had to skip over parts like in some other books, it has parts that are a vibrant description of excruciating persecution with agony and misery mixed in for good measure.

badge4v4I read several online interviews that featured Mr. Farish, and I will tell you that his experience will give you authenticity in the weapons and battle scenes. His writing is first rate and he has done his research on all the things that really make a story pop.

This is not a happy tale, but if you want a kick ass adventure told by a master of story telling, you NEED to try this book.  There is no cliff hanger, but there is a lead in to Book #2, of which I am looking forward to being released very soon.

Mr. Farish is very generous with his readers as he is offering up 3 autographed Junior Inquisitor books for giveaway via Rafflecopter.

Please enter to win because this is one darn good book!  I loaned mine out, so fair warning to the person who is borrowing it – you’d better return it or I will hunt you down!! 😉
