Legacy

by

Craig Edmonds and his young family are awoken at 2 AM by someone banging at their front door. On their doorstep they find an unexpected delivery… a large crate with a generic label addressed to his family.


Their remote house, the lateness of the hour, the unexpectedness of the delivery… something feels wrong to Craig, a sheriff in the high desert of southern Utah. It has taken him years to recover from the psychological trauma he’d undergone as an elite Marine sniper, but his life was now simple and complete.

But then he opens the crate to discover an intricately carved wooden mirror. Now Craig must fight an enemy far worse than any he’d encountered in the Middle East. Only this time he is battling against time and the embodiment of evil in a desperate attempt to save his family. His mission will take him twenty five years into the past and six thousand miles from home in order to defeat the reanimation of a 16th century English witch in this spine-chilling time travelling horror.

Chris Coppel is a master of this genre. Spooky and adventurous with characters developed with emotion and grace. You can’t help rooting for the retired sniper turned cop as he tries desperately to reverse time and kill a witch whose hunting his wife. This could be a start to an incredible series. I want to read more. Awesome!

Overall I would say that I enjoyed this one. It was an original concept (snipe in the head the creepy witch who has kidnapped my wife for her soul but in 1996 with a time jumping aboriginal) haha but it was a fun and action packed adventure.

I really fell in love with Craig’s character and thought that Coppel expertly used his back story to draw on that sympathy and empathy, but he is probably the only character in the book I found mildly believable (and at times that was a stretch).

This is one of those books that is better taken with a pinch of salt and an open mind - it’s def set up for a prequel and I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t read it.

With six new novels publishing in less than one year the author is perhaps making a challenge to the current grand masters of horror - Stephen King in the USA and Graham Masterton in the UK?
There are echoes here of the horrors of H.P. Lovecraft and Algernon Blackwood in a plot carefully blending the tropes of classic horror with the new.
There's everything one could wish for in a good horror novel from deadly portals to other worlds, rabid creatures in the attic, a centuries-old witch, to a picnic at Hanging Rock.
