Ghost busting aint easy, sometimes a lil queasy

Sgt. Janus, Spirit-Breaker is a mysterious figure in the mystical world who goes around breaking spirits. No, I don't mean shattering people's wills, I mean as in putting down rampant and rampaging ghosts, revenents, and spooks. Like Ghost Busters minus proton packs and more mystical. Actually, this is nothing like the Ghost Busters, and I want to point out that this is a fairly serious story that is well paced, excellently written, and full of excitement. I did find that Janus disappearing for stretches was a little disappointing, I would have liked to see more of him in the book, but then he would be such a conundrum. I like that the book leaves a lot of stuff unanswered, I hate it when a writer blows his wad all in one book, there look to be more coming, and so the mysteries will reveal themselves in time.

I have a couple other books by Beard, including his Captain Action, Monster Aces, Black Bat, Occult Detectives, and Purple Scar to name a few. He has such a refined writing quality that has clearly come from years of honing his craft. He has a real appreaciation for the characters he writes, ahd seems to love pulp style books. I would sincerely say that this style is obviously his forte.

Formichella fulfills his duties as narrator in a powerful manner. He seems to be effortless as he navigates the story, and knows how to build tension or ease a moment. His voice is nice to listen to, and he plays each character's personal sound wonderfully. He helped to make the story fun! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
