Spellbound by Christopher PikePike at his best: cunning and creative. I try to guess what the end will be but I dont find out until he leads me there personally.
It starts a little slow and the mystery doesnt seem that urgent or strong until later in the second half, but meanwhile I had some good writing to keep me focused, an interesting circle of friends whose different personalities sometimes complement, sometimes clash. There isnt a primary main character but head hopping is kept to a minimum. There is a false death scare or two, but its forgivable since it gave me my happy ending.
I didnt guess what the villain would be, or who, until later. Even when the villain is revealed, the unveiling of how the villain is accomplishing the deaths is unique. Where Pike comes up with this stuff, I have no idea, his imagination seems endless at times.
The ending pages had a neat twist as well to give a nod of the ironic hat. Fans of Pike will probably enjoy this one.
