My Thoughts on Lost Oblivion by Katherine Silva –
After spending some much-needed time with his daughter, Hank gets a disturbing voicemail from his friend. Fearing the worst, he rushes to get help to search the woods, hoping to find his friend alive. But once in the forest, things take an unexpected turn.
I would happily read many more tales centered around Hank. He’s such a gem of a character! His struggles are so real-world, and so relatable even if you haven’t been through something exactly like it. Even when faced with dilemma after dilemma that would break many people, Hank may be affected, but he doesn’t let it change the path of his inner guide; his love of people and wanting to help is just incredible.
In this tale, I was so nervous to see where Hank would end up. Seeing his inner thoughts play out and seeing how much he was struggling with the trauma of what happened on Halloween paired with the fear of what he was about to find in the woods was so unsettling. With each step he took, I was ready to scream through the pages for him to turn back.
I cruised through this tale, just waiting for Hank to get back to safety. I had so much fun reading, especially where the darkness and suspense were paired so wonderfully with the lighthearted joking that Dan and Andy brought into the mix! This made me want to revisit Dan and Andy’s Scary-oke Holiday immediately!
When I hit the final pages, I let out a gasp, recognizing the scene. I LOVED that the tale brought us where it did! Readers of the series so far, you’re going to love this as well!
My Favorite Passages from Lost Oblivion by Katherine Silva –
He struggled to swallow the lump in his throat. A feeling coated his skin like oil then, the feeling that something was wrong. The feeling that he’d missed something, that he hadn’t been paying attention when he should have been.
Hank froze. His heart was in his throat and he couldn’t swallow it, its steady beat drumming harder and harder.
Trepidation was the tickle of a hundred ants crawling on Gerard’s skin.
A snarl trundled over the fog from deep within the trees. It was distant but the dread it ushered forth in Gerard’s body was like a tide steadily rolling in.
