#BookReview: A Maze of Glass by @thesrhughes

Synopsis: Zoe Briar solves problems. As sister to a heroin-addled genius, as operative and agent for a secret society, and as something most people would understand as a “monster hunter,” it’s essentially her prime nature. But not every solution is a clean one and not every problem can be solved…

In 1997, cut off from family and desperate to get sober, sister Gillian Briar convinces Zoe to participate in a dark and dangerous ritusal. In a middle-of-nowhere house, the two siblings strain against both each other and a dark, nascent presence as growing mistakes warp the ritual around them.

In 2006, Zoe drags a survivor of a supernatural attack into a world of magic and monsters. Together, they search for the mystical mad scientist responsible for the assault as he accelerates into full-blown terrorism. But even after recruiting help, their quarry always seems one move ahead…

And in 2016, Zoe faces her toughest challenge yet: protecting her sister Gillian’s illegal supernatural school from being wiped out by her own employer.

The world of A Maze of Glass writhes with shadow; its dead-ends shred and slice.

Can Zoe escape its uncertain corridors?

My Review: I never hold out much hope for indie published titles.  Ive had a lot of bad ones over the years.  But every once in a while there are a few that just come your way and blow you out of the water.  And this one lord was it one of them!! This was an epic story with everything I was looking for in a new paranormal/science fiction story.  I loved the characters and the plot, the pacing was perfect, and I just couldn't put it down.  This 359 page story was one edge of your seat story! 

S. R. Hughes inhabits the glittering dreamways between blackened stars; but, corporeally, inhabits a tiny apartment in dozy Fairport, NY. He writes dark fantasy, horror, and diet sci-fi.

S. R. Hughes has been featured in Sanitarium Magazine, as well as in the Wild Hunt eZine, and on the Have You Heard the One? podcast. His first Oceanrest novel, The War Beneath, was released in October 2019 and his second Oceanrest novel, A Maze of Glass, released in October 2022.
