THE DEEP ONES: "Buried in the Sky" by John Shirley em The Weird Tradition (Dezembro 6, 2023)

Resenhas

This was surprisingly hard for me to stay engrossed in.......odd, considering vintage horror is one of my favorite reads. The characters and storyline were exactly what I usually enjoy reading. Maybe it was just me and I was too preoccupied, but I didn't love this one.

I enjoyed this novel very much. It felt like an episode of Grimm and gave me the urge to rewatch the series.

Yes, there were a few mistakes here and there, but the characters were true to their nature which is portrayed in the tv series.

The story kept me nailed, and I loved how they give more information about the Grimm bloodline.

A reluctant three stars.

Three complaints:
1. Lack of motivation for one dramatic moment ... which was unfortunately the climax

2. One dramatic moment glossed over for no reason

3. Two parts where Shirley seemed as if he lost track of what was happening

But I like the world and the characters and the wackiness of working game mechanics into a coherent story. There's no point in applying too much critical thinking to this one.

Much better than the first one. More fun, more character, more action.
