The King of Winter By Andy Monk
This book paints a vivid and detailed picture of life in London, circa 1704. From words; to scenes; to the culture; you truly feel as though you have been brought back to look in on a time when the world was new. Caleb, the main character, has a dark past, grim future, and bleak life filled with gambling, women and booze. He befriends Defane. Defane is an over dressed, pompous, and seemingly wealthy man living a life similar to Caleb. But what is Defane hiding? Maybe Defane’s acquaintance Dr. Rothery knows. All the while, Caleb begins to wonder about his new friend nighttime behaviors.
After reading for a while you are held in suspense, waiting for the climax, when its realized this is only part 1 of the story. "Arrgggh!!! I am now in a hurry to find the next part of this book. Pick this book up for a detail story of man vs. beast, who will win?
