MJ Preston is an author. But besides all that, he’s also a retired solider, artist, and ice road trucker. MJ, has used his experiences in life to create stories. Stories that if his this book is any indication, will be well worth tracking down and reading. While I’m sure he will be the writer of many great books down the road, let’s focus with the NOW. And the now is his book, The Equinox.
And what is The Equinox about?
It has existed for centuries. A dark curse held captive by ancient ritual, a creature of insatiable hunger possessing the ability to change shape at will. During spring and fall equinox it would break through the walls separating our worlds and roam the spirit woods of Chocktee to feed. Now it walks among us-unrestrained-and it’s hungry. Banished from the Chocktee Nation, and obsessed with vengeance, Daniel Blackbird has been chasing the “Walker” across North America for over 14 years. Bearing a scar from his first encounter, he feels its telepathic pull and is drawn in whatever direction it moves, but it always seems to be one step ahead of him. Until now.
If you like well crafted books that are a pleasure to read, you need to check out this book. I’ve stated it before, I’m not much of a reader, but this 385 pager was a book that I found to be a page turner. I dug his style, his wording, and the story. I’ve found that a lot of times with books, you hit these dead sections where things seem to kinda be dragged down and not be as interesting as the rest. I didn’t see one of those spots in this book. It reminds you of some classic horror tales. The Thing, Dreamcatcher, and so on and so forth. You can find shades of that all here. And it’s here mixed with new and original ideas that will stand out to you as you read.
If you are bored with the current state of horror movies, you might find that reading is a great alternative. And this proves that people like MJ Preston may be at the head of this new alternative way of getting your thrills and chills. You’ll never be bored with The Equinox. And I highly recommend it.
