Marshall Montgomery, a troubled newspaper reporter, is shocked when he learns that one of the young women he interviewed for an internship position has been found dead in the middle of the road near Wakan Canyon. It’s clearly no hit and run incident: her wrists and ankles have been slashed, and she’s been completely drained of blood. Even worse, her murder mirrors that of his younger sister, who died mysteriously years ago. Determined to solve the mystery of her death, the well-meaning Marshall is soon swept up into the path of a war that has secretly been raging for centuries.
Bad Land is the literary equivalent of a summer action movie. I found myself a little bored at first, flipping through the pages and following what at first seems to be a standard cloak-and-dagger plot peopled with two-dimensional characters. However, the further I got into the book, the more I was intrigued by the turn of events, and—to my surprise—found myself interested in the possible sequel to follow. It’s not an outstanding book, but it certainly isn’t bad, either. Recommended for fans of the action/adventure genre.
