The horde was eager to attack. They knew they would win with their superior armaments. In their impatience to engage the enemy, they reached the field of battle first. They prepared to engage with confidence. They would eviscerate their opponents.

“Hark!” said the leader grinning fiercely at hearing a noise. “They approach!”

With weapons raised, they readied themselves.

Their eyes flew wide and their mouths gaped as the enemy appeared. They began dropping to the ground their weapons useless as the smiling, gurgling babies surrounded by tiny fluffy kittens and frisky puppies came toward them–and killed them with cuteness.

Tennessee Murray, out of college for three years, has realized his ambition to teach and his dream of publishing a book, and is preparing to marry the love of his life. Things can only get better, right?

He thinks so. That is, he does until the morning he awakens and his fiancée is not in their apartment. He steps out into an unexpected and unusual fog to go looking for her and finds himself in a waking nightmare. Something has happened. It is sudden, it is deadly, and it is inexplicable. It changes not only his life but that of everyone on Earth.

 

Rise of the Discordant: The Complete Five Book Series by [McMullen, Christina]Available at Amazon

Once again, I find myself reviewing a book by Christina McMullen. Or rather, I should say “books” as this is a box set. I’ve never done a review of a box set before and I’m still not sure exactly how that should be done but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Each book builds on the previous one and segues flawlessly into the next. For me, reading them this way was an enjoyable experience and it kept the magic going in this tale of good vs. evil. Or rather, it is a tale of order vs. disorder.

The story takes place in a small Midwestern town and is told in the first person using the POVs of different characters, a method for which I usually don’t care, but in this case, I felt it worked quite well because it afforded greater insight into the thoughts and motives of each individual.

As you might expect, some folk are given the task of fighting this, er, fight.

There are the agents of Order, chosen by the Creator to be such after they’ve met their demise in some violent way. There are psychics and witches fighting alongside them, and then there are what I would call some gray area folk who also join the brouhaha, including a decidedly different bartender in a bar that’s central to the story. They don’t always agree or get along and there was my occasional thought of, “This is a good guy?” but they’re determined to keep at bay the denizens of Chaos who are hell-bent on causing mayhap and mayhem, and major disruption in the world. Theirs is a tough job and all isn’t necessarily as it seems (wherein I had the occasional thought of, “This is a bad guy?”) and the outcome of the battle against the denizens of Chaos isn’t clear.

The take on the Creator of Everything is unique but I found myself nodding and thinking, “Yeah, that makes sense”. There is a dark thread that runs throughout (I mean, there are all sorts of dark creatures such as vampires, werewolves, etc. which means there’s bound to be some maiming and killing) but, after all, this wouldn’t be a proper McMullen tale without some chuckles and believe me, they’re there. Still, the story makes you stop and think.

And I stopped and thought – several times – and in the end, what I thought was I was sorry to get to the end! I wanted more of this never-ending story! Anybody that likes paranormal fantasy will love this!

Five stars because Christina McMullen has done her usual job of entertaining the heck out of me.
