MY REVIEW

This is the third book in the series, and the finale, so I will do my best to not include spoilers. Just make you want to run right out and buy this mystery series. If you are a creature feature lover, like me, this will be a must read collection you want on your reading shelf.

It’s nice to be back in Point Pleasant, with familiar friends and monsters, waiting for the next adventure to begin.

Book II left me feeling so sad for Mothman and I worry about what will become of him. He has lived for A Thousand Yesteryears, the only one of his kind.

The Ouija Board had foretold QM would become a part of Sarah’s life. WTH is QM?

The curse brought HIM to Point Pleasant.

Caden is a cop in Point Pleasant and knows the Mothman, and others, that I won’t speak about. You’ll have to meet them all yourself…and you might want to have someone with you when you do.

Lach is back and there is always trouble when he makes an appearance.

Stone amulets…a deadly blade…a curse

Shawn and Preech will play their part as the curse rises from the past, demanding retribution. You can never escape the past…innocent or guilty, it just doesn’t matter.

A Desolate Hour, great title by the way, has an aura of menace from the beginning.

“A Desolate Hour when a tear in time renders past and present in one.” How can that be anything but bad news?

When Mothman vanishes for long periods of time and everything is normal in Point Pleasant, I wonder where he goes, what he’s doing. He didn’t ask for his fate. Alone. Isolated. Angry. Suffering.

As the people and forces in Point Pleasant draw together, it is ‘the culmination of A Desolate Hour’, and the door closes on the Mothman’s story. Mae Clair did a bang up job with the ending, leaving me satisfied, but…

I am so sad to be leaving Point Pleasant and the marvelous characters and adventure I have had, but I do not despair. I know Mae Clair has another marvelous story up her sleeve and I aim to get my hands on it.

If you are a creature feature lover, if you crave reading about myths and legends, if you like to be scared and surprised, run and soar through the air, this is one series you don’t want to miss.

GOODREADS BLURB

Sins of the past could destroy all of their futures . . .

For generations, Quentin Marsh’s family has seen its share of tragedy, though he remains skeptical that their misfortunes are tied to a centuries-old curse. But to placate his pregnant sister, Quentin makes the pilgrimage to Point Pleasant, West Virginia, hoping to learn more about the brutal murder of a Shawnee chief in the 1700s. Did one of the Marsh ancestors have a hand in killing the chief —the man who cursed the town with his dying breath?

While historian Sarah Sherman doesn’t believe in curses either, she’s compelled to use her knowledge of Point Pleasant to uncover the long-buried truth. The river town has had its own share of catastrophes, many tied to the legendary Mothman, the winged creature said to haunt the woods. But Quentin’s arrival soon reveals that she may have more of a stake than she realized. It seems that she and Quentin possess eerily similar family heirlooms. And the deeper the two of them dig into the past, the more their search enrages the ancient mystical forces surrounding Point Pleasant. As chaos and destruction start to befall residents, can they beat the clock to break the curse before the Mothman takes his ultimate revenge?

  1. The Mothman! I may add this to my tbr! 🙂 I can’t say I’ve ever read a novel with that character before. You know, I’ve actually been to Point Pleasant and have had my photo taken with the statue downtown! 😀

    • Hi, Lauren! I have to chime in to mention I visited Point Pleasant and the TNT area twice while writing this series. And, of course, had my photo taken with the statue. 🙂

      If you do decide to read the book (or any of them in the series) I hope you enjoy the tale(s)!

  2. Sherry, thank you so much for your review of A Desolate Hour. Naturally, I’m delighted you enjoyed the story and the series. I’m sad to see this come to an end too (I’ve spent so much time with these characters), but I’m already working on a new series to ease the passing 🙂

    The Mothman and I both thank you!!

  3. I remember your other reviews and so thrilled the finale wowed you, Sherry. I k now I’d love these since you sure did. The Mothman has fascinated since I watched some documentaries and watched the movie with Richard Gere in it. I hope I can buy these soon. Just had to replace my Wii so I can keep watching Netflix, so they’ll have to wait a bit. Dang!

    • I know you are a fellow creature feature lover to and you would definitely love these. I hope you get a chance to read them. Sorry to hear about your Wii. I know you watch a lot of Netflix. Be talking at you soon.

  4. I’ve yet to read a book about the Mothman legend (I didn’t greatly like the Richard Gere film!) but I just might try a sample of the first book in this series to see what it’s like.

    • There’s more going on in the book than just Mothman. I never saw the Gere film, so I can’t comment on that.
