Overview

The Cult of Me by Michael Brookes

In my youth I developed a talent for reading other people's minds and with practice, forcing my will upon them. I have never encountered anyone capable of resisting my thoughts and for a time I enjoyed the fruits of my power. A terrible tragedy led me to darker place and then I wielded my ability not simply to satisfy my desires but to torment and judge the throng of humanity around me.

Years passed until I realised that my life lacked meaning and I lived without purpose. It wasn't a difficult change to make. And with that choice I have one final act to inflict upon the world and they will remember my name with fear for ages to come.

About the Author

By day I work as a Producer for one of the leading UK independent game developers. I currently live in probably the flattest place in the world in the east of England, although over the years I have lived all over the country. I've always been interested in writing it is only recently that I've really pushed myself to finish a complete book. That effort has now seen the light of day and I'm looking forward to starting the next book. I'm also an avid reader with Clive Barker, Ian M Banks and Terry Prachett being amongst my favourite modern authors. My favourite story of all time is Paradise Lost, a tricky read, but a sublime story.

R2R: The Cult of Me (I received a free copy, in exchange for a review) A talent that is quite unusual. To be able to explore others minds and to bend their wills, for his own games. Quite unlike anything out there, until he is arrested and placed into prison. There he realizes that he is not the only one with this talent. 'It did matter to me though. I wanted everyone to know what I had done. Not only that, but to worry what I could have done. One day there will be another like me and I wanted everyone to fear that day as that new version of me arises and sees my example and strives to be far worse. A satisfying thought.' One of the more interested books I have read in awhile! Interesting take on a supernatural power and how it can corrupt a person. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in dark, psychological read. It took me a few days to write this review, since I was still digesting the story. Great job!

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This story is told in 1st person and flips between the past and the present. The narrator is a telepath who can influence others to do his bidding. He uses it for any number of reasons, but eventually settles on causing people to kill themselves. He tires of the game and decides to *go out with a bang*. His plans are thwarted in prison when he encounters those he cannot influence and becomes a part of a covert operation to take out Lazarus - as in the man Christ raised from the dead. I enjoyed this book. The idea of using the anti-hero for the book is a new premise for me, and I found the book engaging. The action at times lagged a little bit, but overall was well written. I look forward to more from this author.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely loved this. Its a fantastic psychological thriller, quite dark and thought provoking. I could write an essay about how amazing this book is, just wow.
