The Turning, Phil Price

Horror & Occult, Supernatural & Paranormal

He had escaped the horrors of the last few months. Started a new life, with his new family.

His life was returning to normal, his scars healing.

Until they found him.

After his loved ones were taken to their world… to their horrors. Now, Jake must follow, hoping it’s not too late.

But will he reach them in time… before they are turned against him?

A short while ago I reviewed an incredible novel called Unknown written by the well-accomplished author Phil Price. Unknown is book one in The Forsaken Series and is a supernatural story that will take its readers on a thrilling ride across many strange and terrifying realms. The story captivated me from the start thanks to the compelling and exciting nature of the book. When I finished Unknown I was desperate to get my hands on The Turning, which is book two in The Forsaken Series. I was desperate to be reunited with the protagonist of the first book who I have grown to admire and respect. I have now finished reading The Turning and wow, what an incredible sequel! Now that I have finished reading The Turning I can happily write that this is one of the best sequels I have had the pleasure of reading so I would implore all of you lovely readers to read book one and book two as you will not regret it!

The Turning takes place after the final events of Unknown. The reader is once again reunited with the dear protagonist of the novel, Jake Stevenson, a man who in the first book had lost everything, including his wife and his child. Jake in Unknown is thrust on a journey which leads him to investigate the strange disappearances of people all over the world; his trip will take him through terrifying realms and this is the premise of Unknown. In The Turning Jake has now settled into a new and comfortable, happy life. He has remarried to a beautiful woman called Katherine, and they have a baby girl who is equally beautiful so it is safe to write that Jake has escaped the supernatural world that haunted him for so long… well, so he thought. Jake will soon discover that he is still being hunted and Elias and Eddie, two Vampires want Jake and his family. The two evil vampires kidnap Katherine as well as their child to lure Jake back to them. What follows is a terrifying mission in which the reader will witness the extreme lengths Jake will go to, to rescue the ones he loves before he loses everything all over again and this book lovers is the premise of The Turning.

When I think of The Turning and what a brilliant story it is I genuinely smile as it is sensational and highly entertaining. Straight away Phil Price reunites his reader with the protagonist and makes them feel comfortable as well as welcome in the new story. Price has a beautiful ability to slowly draw the reader back in so far that they won’t be able to let go… well, until the book is over! Price has managed to accomplish the almost impossible, he has written a fantastic sequel that is just as good, if not better than the first book! Never before have I read such a well-developed sequel, I was slightly nervous that The Turning would not live up to my expectations of the first book but once the story kicks in and gets going these thoughts disappeared.

Not only is Phil Price excellent for being able to draw his reader in quickly as well as write a phenomenal sequel, but he is also brilliant for expanding on an already vast supernatural universe. I thought that the story could not be developed further as the story in Unknown was already so well established so I was impressed by how he managed to develop on the world he had already created! This is a sign of a pure literary talent and so I am incredibly impressed with his writing ability.

As The Turning is another brilliant book written by Phil Price that will engage, excite and entertain its readers I, of course, am going to award this novel five stars too! It is quite simply incredible and I would implore all of you lovely readers to read The Turning as well Unknown!
