Caligation *****
By Brhi Stokes

Ripley told college he’s through, missed a bus head home, and met a woman with a tail. Then things started getting real weird. He awoke in Caligation, a town he can’t seem to escape. Before he can get the lay of the land he is coerced into working for the mob and entangled in a four way war between the police, the mob, normal humans, and people with animal strengths. Will Ripley live long enough to learn the secret of Caligation? Read for yourself, this book rocks!

I like theme of asking what it means to be a person. It’s something I like to visit in my own stories. Stokes does a great job getting you into both sides of that question as the inhabitants of this secluded city fight it out.

I was given a free review copy at my request and have voluntarily left a review. Any review. That fact that it’s a good one is because the book is good. Which has nothing to do with how awesome I am. You’ll have to find that out for yourself at LARC-SciFi(dot)com.

As I sat in my jeep, trembling slightly from 4:30 gridlock on the George Washington Bridge on the bleak side of the Big Apple at rush hour, I imagined Caligation playing out with a bit of fog, in sepia colors. 

The story looks great that way (in my head of course), made greater looking by the abyss of Friday afternoon commuters. I’m not crazy, I was listening to the GPS lady read the book to me with eReader Prestigio app.

Read this book if you liked the Adams Family, urban fantasy, books with vampires, the Goon comic books, Halloween, or that eighties movie Monster Squad. Or just because I suggested it.

It's a link to the book that gives me part of Amazon's commission. It won't cost you any extra, but it will show me you enjoyed my review!

I like Stokes's work so much that I took over one of her short stories! Check out Writer Battle: Woman in Wolf's Clothing. Its a ten minute read. Brhi Stokes and I also recorded a Book Club Chat for Caligation and she appears in VFC 2017 Prehistoric Fantasy at Shane's Book Club.
