Book Review Eidolons

eidolons-coverTitle: Eidolons

Author: Harrison Fountain

Genre: Literary Fantasy

When TK dies in a car accident, the Grim Reaper gives him a second chance at life, but he says it’s more fun being a ghost. As he haunts his small Iowa town, his sleek shell of sarcasm cracks to a terrified lonely inner self. Find out why he’d rather be dead.

I don’t want to spoil anything (the blurb is short, so basically just about anything outside of that is a spoiler) but some very unexpected things happen to TK once he’s dead, and I never really quite knew what direction the book was going to take, which I loved.

The writing was the strongest part of the book for me. As an editor, I’m always on the lookout for errors or clumsy sentences, but the writing here was great.

If you think you’re in for a standard, stereotypical “person dies, becomes a ghost” story then you’ll be surprised at what Eidolons has to offer.
