During October’s Something Wicked Tour, you heard from C. S. Boyack’s spokesperson, Lisa Burton about his latest release, Viral Blues. Having read and enjoyed The Hat, I was eager to read this one and learn more about the adventures of Lizzie and The Hat.
Someone knows about the hat. The creature from another dimension that helps Lizzie fight against the creatures of darkness.
They are summoned to a cryptic meeting with a secret society, where they meet other people with enhanced skills. It turns out someone, or something, has been tampering with the world’s vaccine supply. The goal doesn’t appear to be political or financial, but biblical pestilence.
Can this group of loners come together in time to make a difference when even the proper authorities are obstacles?
Check out Viral Blues, for your dose of paranormal adventure, with a strong sample of dark humor. And in recent superhero style, don’t miss the secret last chapter after the back material.
My Five Star Review:
Lizzie and The Hat are Back…
And this time they bring a cast of characters with them. Fans of C. S. Boyack’s work will recognize several characters— including Jason Fogg, Gina Greybill, Mohan Gupta, and my favorite, Lisa Burton.
Someone has tampered with the world’s vaccine supply and this mixed group band together to stop whoever is responsible.
The action is fast paced and the storyline highly imaginative and entertaining. Throw in a little music and you have the elements to keep you turning the pages.
A note about ratings. I consider three stars and above as positive reviews. I reserve five stars for books that keep me turning the pages and that I would read again. (Yes, I’ve been known to do that.)
5 Stars: Awesome story! Couldn’t put it down – Highly recommend.
4 Stars: The book kept me interested – Check it out.
3 Stars: It was okay. Not my favorite, but I didn’t dislike it enough to discontinue.
2 Stars: Book didn’t hold my interest, problems with the plot, characters, poor writing, etc.
1 Star: Don’t bother!
