    I absolutely loved Chris F. Holm's debut, DEAD HARVEST, so I've

    I absolutely loved Chris F. Holm's debut, DEAD HARVEST, so I've been eagerly anticipating the sequel. What I never imagined was that THE WRONG GOODBYE would impress me even more than its predecessor. You know how some books are impossible to put down? That's definitely the case here. Holm's sharp, vivid writing is addictive, and his pacing is swift and sure-footed. I found myself tearing through pages at a frantic clip, then stopping suddenly because I just didn't want this story to end. Seriously, THE WRONG GOODBYE is that good.

    Sam Thornton, Holm's soul-collecting protagonist, is in fine form, and he's as sardonic as ever. (Really, I should call Sam the hero, since he's already saved the world once, but Sam is a damned soul and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't go for that.) The cast of characters around him, whether demon, human, or something in-between, is completely engaging and endlessly fascinating. I'm not a reader who gravitates to novels about supernatural beings, but what I love about Holm's work is that he grounds his characters in human emotions that are recognizable and real. His supernatural characters are far less notable for their special powers than they are for the eternal sense of loss they experience, and for what they're willing to do or sacrifice to escape it.

    Highly, highly recommended. I can't wait for Holm's next book!
