    This review was originally published on Invincible Love of Reading under Kurt's Frontier.




    Synopsis: 
    Drew is a hardworking family man, whose life is turned upside down by a visit from the spirit of his deceased grandfather and the murder of two coworkers. Ravna is a demon hunter on the trail of a Gaki, also called a Preta, or Hungry Ghost. Drew’s grandfather was possessed by the Gaki, and now it has Drew. Ravna has to track Drew and the Gaki down before they kill again. Meanwhile, Drew is being forced to submit to the Gaki’s control.




    Review:
    J. Thorn’s Preta’s Realm: The Haunting takes eastern demonology and drops it into North America. The Gaki proved a formidable antagonist. While frightening in concept, the effect of the Gaki was more of suspense than fear as I read the book. The writing style itself is good and the pacing was fine. The dialogue is believable. I often say “characters drive the plot and the plot drives the story.” The character development was lacking so that it was really hard to care about the people in the story. We start off with hints of Drew being a better person, but the onset of the possession happens so quickly that the Drew the audience sees is very hard to like. Ravna doesn’t get enough development for the audience to develop feelings for him. I would call Petra’s Realm a story with untapped potential. It ends without resolution, and I am curious to see how the trilogy develops.
