Book Review – “Anon” by Peter Giglio
Have you ever lost someone you loved? Did your life feel like a shell of what might have been? What if you were offered and opportunity and the power to get that person back, would you take up that opportunity no matter the cost? Rory Ellison lost the love of his life in a moment he regrets and has wanted another chance with her more than anything else. When he is given the means and opportunity for the reunion by his company’s Executive Director of Operations, he accepts. The offer doesn’t come without a price, however. Anon, the company granting him the ability to make his desire come true, wants the woman’s daughter and the ability she possesses. Death and destruction of a family ensue.
I liked this book quite a bit. The plan used is methodical and, even without the magic, something that is believable. There were a couple of spots where it felt a little more difficult to follow, but outside of them it had a good flow. This story is a mixture of psychological and supernatural horror and the company, Anon, makes me think of Wolfram & Hart in the Angel television series. I found the ending to fit and leave the reader wanting to continue into the next book. I give it a rating of a 4 out of 5. Check it out when you want a good rainy day story. The book is available via Amazon.
