Lifetimes by Chris Coppel
Many thanks to Carola from @HenryRoiPR for a review copy.
"Lifetimes" is the sequel to Legacy, the story of time-travelling ex-Marine Craig Edmonds, and his battle to save himself and his family from the evil witch, Beyath.
The story doesn't disappoint, it's a solid sequel and kept me entertained, we find Craig Edmonds trying yet again to save not only his family from the dreaded witch Beyath but also his timeline, this time the author introduces multiple timelines because of failed attempts of getting rid of the witch.
I enjoyed that part of the story of Craig living different timelines, but I would have liked to find out more about Beyath's domain, i.e Craig passing over to her realm, finding more about the place.
Overall I enjoyed it and will check his other works.
I was raised the son of a writer. My father wrote plays, films and novels. He was successful and suffered constant wanderlust. I was born in America when he was there writing Vertigo for Alfred Hitchcock.
I give that familial insight so that you can understand that had the genes, I just needed to find my footing and get up the nerve to put pen to paper (or to be more accurate...open my laptop). Many would say that having a successful parent should make it easier to follow their path under the protective shadow of their parent’s success. Not so! Writing is difficult. Writing in the hopes that you will be read and your works appreciated is terrifying. In my case, the fear of failure kept my ideas and stories buried in a back closet within my brain.
It is only now as I enter the latter part of my existence that I have been able to calm the fear and share my stories with those who may wish to read them.
I would like to think that it was my choice to write about things that go bump into the night, but it wasn’t. I had no idea that I would one day write tales of horror, but that is now what I do. With each new book, I feel drawn further into the dark void that we feel but rarely see. I hope you will join me.
