Lych Way (The Undertaken Trilogy)
Book three of the Undertaken trilogy, Lych Way was unique, pulling from death as its source of storyline. Starting a bit sluggish, it eventually got better; however, it just seemed like something was missing. Possibly the first two books? Not having read the prior books in this series, it was obvious that this wasn’t really a good stand-alone book and will affect how a reader sees the overall book.
The story is written with great emotion and it is easy to get caught up in the suspense and folklore that runs through it. Silas’s character is extremely well written and you get the feeling you have known him forever and want to help him. The world of the dead can be a formidable topic to write about and this book explores the world of folklore, ancestry, and devotion to loved ones exceptionally well. You certainly build a connection with this story. By the end, you are left asking unanswered questions as you realize many things encountered are never explained, but this keeps the book full of twists and turns. I would urge those thinking about reading this book to do so, but definitely to read the first two books first.
