(Caveat: We received an Advance Reader Copy of Derek Vasconi’s forthcoming horror novel, Kai, in return for an honest review.)
Derek Vasconi’s Japanese-inspired horror novel Kai was a delight to read. The author’s intricate plot gives the reader a slow build to its simmering climax and his attention to detail shows a true love of Japanese culture. He’s woven a tale of two disparate girls, Seul-Bi, an orphaned Korean girl in Chicago and Satsuki, a despondent teenager in Hiroshima. His imagery is vivid and he pulls no punches. Fans of Japanese horror would do well to give Kai a chance.
Kai is scheduled for publication on January 6th, 2016. You can check out more reviews on Derek’s Goodreads page at: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27069020-kai
We hope you’ll give it a read. Happy New Year!
