The Hangman is a paranormal urban fantasy story. This is book one of ‘The Hangman Universe’ series. The story begins with Kente Cromwell being murdered by his neighbours. He strikes a deal with Leechdon, the Soul Eater, a powerful demon and the new leader of the underworld, to come back seeking revenge over the people who lied to him and betrayed him. However, Leechdon has a plan of his own and plans to attack Earth by bringing four of his own allies. This creates a problem for the Hangman as he now has to pick a side.
I found the concept of the story to be fascinating. As this was book one, I expected a solid foundation and a decent character introduction throughout the storyline. The author managed to execute a delightful thrilling plot with many twists that kept me guessing.
Enough material was left to carry on for the future, and enough was discussed to satisfy the reader. The pace of the story was steady, and the descriptive writing added to the intensity of the fantasy.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read urban fantasy material.Tweet
