Damned is the third book in The Castle Chronicles by Michael S. Vassel. Mark Castle’s life had reached a standstill. He had no idea what he wanted to do, so he left Cleveland in the hopes of finding a direction that made sense to him. Moving to Santa Fe was a distraction, but his job at a hospital made him come face to face with a creature that would become his next target. He managed to scare that terrible creature off, but the job was far from done. He arrived in Las Vegas where he received a very interesting job offer that he was reluctant to turn down. Could he manage the new job and finish the creature off once and for all? Or was it going to be the end of the road for him?
I fell in love with this author’s writing style when I read Bits & Bites, so you can imagine my anticipation when I picked this book up. Michael S. Vassel didn’t disappoint. The pace of the story was perfect; it gave Mark room to grow and make sense of what was going on around him. Mark was a perceptive character, one that thought with his mind and didn’t let his heart lead him astray. He thought analytically and didn’t let conditions sway him. He used his powers, trusted them, and understood that they were his best guide. I enjoyed the thrills and suspense. The chase to find the creature was the right way to bring the story forward, while giving a purpose to Mark was great for his character development. Reading Damned was an absolute pleasure.
