My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was my first time to ever review an audio book. I mean don’t get me wrong, but I rarely get read to. Reason being, is because I read at a pretty fast pace. But let me tell you something, when the book is read to you, it makes it a lot easier to take notes. However, it also makes it a lot easier to get scared. It is relaxing, and a lot like a movie, I mean if you have an active imagination like I do.
I stopped taking notes at one part. I closed my eyes, I was there. And then I was grabbing my cat and dropped my phone, clicked something, scared the cat and the dogs, and just messed up my train of thought and had the dogs barking at what- they didn’t even know. I looked around, because Brian, the author is a jerk and told me to turn the lights off. He said I honestly needed a storm too. There wasn’t one here, but I swear the temperature dropped in the room, and it was like someone was there with me.
And the thing is, I wasn’t even sure I was actually going to ever get to review this book. Brian is a man of little words. He sends emails like this: “Hi.” From the email address “Rhinehoth.” I think he thought I would know or recognize the name. So with his very informative email, I decided to do some research. I seen he was an author. I mean, don’t get me wrong, eventually he did inform me he wanted to know how my review process works, or something, but again, it was one sentence. I’m not kidding. I’m guessing he only has a lot to say when he scares the heck out of people and gives them nightmares. Then, he makes sure you remember his name.
This book was published on October 12, 2009. I think he purposely gave birth to this book around Halloween. The timing was impeccable. It’s only 196 pages or 760 KB. Then reading Brian’s bio where he attended both public and private school, whereas sometimes it was Catholic I know why the ‘scary’ decided to make an appearance. (Joking!!! )
We all know Germany has a bad rap, do we not? Thank you Hitler. Well you see, centuries ago in Germany’s black forest back in the mountains there is a castle. It holds many ancient secrets, and within its dark creepy walls, are ancient guardians who attempt to guard and keep those secrets. Within this castle is being held an enemy that can ruin their very existence. Within this very book, holds the story of a warrior willing to step up and free the captive Vampire Prince.
The way this story comes to pass will amaze you, or “trip you out”, if you will, speaking in modern slang. But the way it is foretold, will amaze you even more.
“Rhinehoth” is prison in Germany where the worst criminals were sent. Simon Roberts is a petty thief, who escaped the Scotland Yard, where he was being chased for many crimes.
Afterwards, Simon gets recruited to drive the getaway car in Germany, and provide look out. This he is sure he can handle without getting caught, and making and mistakes. The heist ended up getting screwed up, and Simon ended up being the only sole survivor, and getting caught. So guess who gets sentenced to “Rhinehoth”? You got it!
Now “Rhinehoth” is great German castle, unfortunately, today the criminals are tortured, sleep deprived and starved. As we all know, things like this can cause delusions. And when the delusions get the best of you, this is when you let them take control, and the guards become werewolves, and you become a warrior, and you can help someone, or so you think.
You will see through Simon’s own eyes what he see’s and feel what he feels, like you are Simon. And you will actually think that maybe, just maybe….he isn’t delusional after all. He just might be telling the truth. I mean, you never know.
I mean, maybe it’s just a dream. Maybe it’s real. Is it, or isn’t it? Maybe you should read and find out. In the dark, during a thunderstorm, like the author suggests.
Brian is an amazing story teller, honestly. This book is five stars. I will listen to it many times over. I loved being read to, and I loved being scared to death. I loved every minute of this. “Rhinehoth” is an amazing read, I wanted to own the hard back, until I seen the price. Then I almost died. Brian, I am so glad you sought me out, please write another book, I want to read more! And get someone to make this into a movie! Five stars! Go buy a copy! You will be extremely satisfied, I promise!
