Feature THE CULT OF ME


Another feature is here today since, as you may know, I like being supportive. I believe that we need to help each other and writers a little bit more.  So, following The Puppet Spell, today I am presenting you…THE CULT OF ME, which by the way, is FREE until 28th February, meaning tomorrow, so go grab a copy. And here is what you should know about THE CULT OF ME.


Book Description:
For too long he dwelt apart, watched those who passed him by. With his unique abilities he entered their minds and inflicted terrible suffering upon them. They didn't even know who he was. The game has lasted for years, but now the game has become stale. On an impulse he decides to make a final and very public last stand. After surrendering himself to the police he enacts his plan to seize the prison for his final bloody act.

There he discovers that he's not as unique as he once thought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitively unusual, 15 Feb 2013

I got this book from the author as part of a blog tour. I found this book unusual and original. The main character is not exactly a likeable one but I was intrigued by his mental powers and his back story about how he develops them. At times this character is a bit of a monster and yet has weaknesses we can relate to. I've never come across such a character and I found him very interesting.
I liked the Christian references and Lazarus' story, and the ending is coherent with the character's personality. I enjoyed and recommend this book to anyone looking for an unusual read.

This book is so hard to define. It's a dark, psychological thriller but also philosophical, metaphysical and totally unusual. Our protagonist displays mental powers from his youth and he teaches himself to use and enhance them. He believes he's alone in these abilities and abuses them to punish or damage people he dislikes. He decides to make a `last stand' in prison and deliberately kills 5 people to get there. Eventually, he finds he isn't unique.

The story includes some early Christian mythology and treats the story of Lazarus in an intriguing way. Was Lazarus blessed by his return from the dead or was he cursed by his loss of the bliss heaven? I found the beginning of the story a little slow but the second half of the book really enthused me. Michael Brookes has some amazing ideas and I shall follow this series with interest. This is definitely for you if you like to be made to think. A very good four star read.

The thing I like about reading indie authors is that no one has messed with their story. This one is great. The author has real talent. I don't often read this sort of fantasy so can't say how unique this story is, but it is certainly different to anything else I have read recently.

The main character is not a particularly likeable person but you want to know what happens next and how he will fair.

Well done, Michael.

Having been recommended this book by a few friends I picked it up not knowing a thing about the plot or the author. After reading the first chapter I couldn't put it down and managed to finish it off in a couple of afternoons.

The writing is accessible and leaves you wanting more. I really can't recommend this book enough and look forward to future releases from the author.

An absolute bargain.

Didn't know what to expect, as I didn't read anything about it before I bought it. But from the first page, it got me hooked, What a fantastic book, couldn't put it down.

Well worth buying.

Brought this book not really knowing much about it but it's turned out to be one of the best books I've read this year.
Lots of twists in the plot and always kept me thinking about what would happen next. It's one of those books that kept me hooked and wanting to read 'just one more page'.

And here are few things about the author Michael Brookes. 


Biography:

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 Ian M Banks and Terry Prachett being amongst my favorite modern authors. My favorite story of all time is Paradise Lost, a hard read, but a sublime story.
