FINAL THOUGHTS | Complete transparency, we’ve got some world building early on, and it makes for some LONG first three chapters. BUT! Those are free. That said, I was hooked before the end of the first chapter!
Johnson’s voice is so eloquent as she rotates across POVs of multiple characters who are so intricately different. Her prose naturally generates a level of suspense and interest as it highlights the familiarity of our own world while simultaneously building Telanthria.
I binged the first three in one sitting, I could not let it go. That said, what I love most, is her infusion of mythology and lore from our world to develop the supernatural elements of Tenebrous‘, making it intrinsically digestible for readers from the get-go.
I can’t decide if I’m just going to try and consistently read Tenebrous each week or if I will wait and binge it, but either way, I will 1000% be coming back!
