“I am Gold, the marauder with a taste for the theatrical, and the talent to pull it off.”
The Moon Eater is a dark crime thriller with supernatural elements, it drops you right into an epic battle between two supernatural serial killers. Gold is a half werewolf with a penchant for sugary baked goods, classical music and of course gruesome murder. While The Moon Eater is a minotaur who is already on the police radar after a series of grisly victims arise.
Part American Psycho, with a plotline to rival Dexter vs Trinity killer with John Wick level action, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat. It does take a while to get the right pieces to build the world and understand the evil but if you stick with it, everything does get fleshed out well. I’m not sure we needed the detective, Curtis’s POV even though he is a foil, he himself was a bit bland in the face of the other characters. Also, it is a series so while the “case” itself wraps up it is called Gold book one so there is an open ended ending for Gold himself. Would be interested to see what other confrontations this character has.
Apologies to the author, this one sat in my Netgalley queue for way too long. I am grateful for gifted access. All opinions above are my own.
This was the oldest book in my Netgalley queue (from 2019)… what’s the book that’s been waiting for you the longest?
