The Eidola Project team is called to investigate a series of gruesome murders that are occurring within a black community in the south when the pastor of the church reaches out to them and fears there is something supernatural about these murders. The year is 1865 and the South is very heavy with racism so the team thinks the killings could be linked to the KKK but if there is the possibility of anything paranormal being involved it is their job to try to learn, understand and solve any type of paranormal happenings that are brought to their attention since paranormal research is fairly new there is nothing that could have prepared them for the horrors they will encounter and the horror of humanity as well.
This was a very enjoyable, clever and entertaining story about early paranormal researchers who take their work very seriously. The are a team of five, a professor of psychology, a doctor or science, another professor who is a recovering alcoholic, a woman with medium abilities and another woman with more psychic talents who also seems to have a bit of secret drug addiction. The book tackles racism throughout the story especially since the doctor also happens to be a black man so there are plenty of cringe worthy and horrific incidents that were sad, anger inducing and appalling. One would think with all the ugliness this wou!d be a bleak and depressing book but the writer handles many situations with a light touch of humor that makes this story very entertaining and a lot of fun. This book is part of a series so I am looking to reading more about this eclectic paranormal team's adventures in the future. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys something different with great storytelling and a touch of humor to lighten the tension on difficult topics.
I want to thank the publisher "The Rose Tree Press" for th opportunity to read this book and any thoughts and opinions expressed are unbiased and mine alone!
I have given this story a rating of 3 1/2 Adventurous 🌟🌟🌟✴ Stars!!
MOONLIGHT BECOMES YOU (An Eidola Project Novel Book #2) by Robert Herold is an intriguing and entertaining historical paranormal horror story set in rural Virginia twenty years after the Civil War. The Eidola Project team come together in Book #1 “The Eidola Project” and while each book has a complete paranormal investigation, I feel it is best to read these books in order due to the continued character revelations and interactions.
Dr. William James and the other paranormal investigators on the Eidola team have been asked to investigate a series of mutilation murders within a small black community in Petersburg, Virginia. The team does not know at first if they are dealing with human monsters riding as the KKK or a true werewolf. It soon becomes apparent they are dealing with both.
This book is such a wonderful mix of paranormal horror and historical reality. The author does an amazing job of mixing and balancing both throughout the entire story. The Eidola Project team is an eclectic group that take their research seriously, but also each have their own very human foibles and weaknesses. All the team members and secondary characters are fully fleshed and time-period appropriate. This book kept me captivated from start to finish even though it is not your typical paranormal werewolf story.
I highly recommend this historical paranormal horror story, series and author!
This is the sequel to The Eidola Project, which I read quite a few months ago. The Eidola Project is a group of people who formed to seek out paranormal activity and some of which have paranormal powers themselves. This time they discover the truth behind the murders of what seem to be a racist slaughter.
I loved that I was able to pick up the storyline rather quickly, and I was able to fall in love with the characters all over again.
Herold doesn't shy away from horror at all and throwing historical fiction into the mix is just pure genius. Having the Ku Klux Klan - KKK and a werewolf in the same story - yeah sure why not?! Only Robert can pull both elements off amazingly once again.
Book is already out and I am hoping to read book 3 very soon.
Thankyou Netgalley The Wild Rose Press Inc and Robert Herold for the gifting of the ebook.
This is an entertaining historical paranormal horror story, it is well written, with likeable characters, the end is a bit predictable, but I still liked it.
This is the 2nd book for the The Eidola Project team, which I didn’t know when I got it, and I have not read the first book, and there seemed to be a few references to the previous book, but it still works by itself, I think it would be better the read the first one before reading this one, but it’s not essential.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes a good old fashioned werewolf story.
*Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for a honest review.*
First time in reading this author with the content drawing me to it. A Project doing a investigation that there are attacks against a particular race by "werewolves". Throw in KKK into the mix and it gets one step weirder. Set in a era in the past before civil war. On top of that there is also romance in this which makes this have the ingredients to a one you must turn the pages to find out the answers to the intrigue.
As in the first of this engaging Paranormal Historical series, this author has a distinct gift of bringing to extraordinary vivid life the deeply ingrained and complexly rooted racism, sexism, and bigotry of the latter 19th century. Reading this Series is to feel part of the victimized characters struggling against institutionalized bigotry and prejudice. All this, set to a backdrop of Supernatural terror and revelatory character arcs, involving some actual historical personages and events, brings an engrossing perspective.
