Poet At Large Reviews, Book, I Am Not a Serial Killer   Leave a comment

Dan Wells manages to mix both the disturbingly real with the frighteningly Supernatural in his horror novel I Am Not a Serial Killer.  The young sociopath vs the demon is an angel that appeals and appalls at the same time.  It is well written and draws one into the intrigue and the struggle of the protagonist is so real and easy to believe.  It is clear that Mr. Wells has done a great deal of research on the subject of Serial Killers and Sociopaths.  It is also easy to see why the Acknowledgments state that Brandon Sanderson told him to stop talking about serial killers and Write The Book.  Readers should also note that the Acknowledgments states that the book is in no way Biographical, which is a relief to those of use who listen to him and his friends on Writing Excuses pod casts or run into him from time to time at conventions.   I have every intention to read and review the sequel I don’t Want to Kill You.  Though I will have to read something else on my list first so that I can let my heart recover from the race this book put it through.
