Venom… where do I begin book lovers? Venom is undoubtedly a novel that should not be missed by anybody because the story that unfolds throughout it is genius, flawlessly written, and wildly entertaining. When I read the premise of Venom, I knew instantly that it was a book I had to read as well as a book I would love, and this is thanks to the themes alluded to throughout the premise with a strong one being a fast-paced thriller adventure. Adventure/thriller novels, in general, are my go-to read but I love even more when they feature more themes than just an adventure and so when I started to read Venom and learned that the book has this, I was thrilled, and it made me turn the pages even faster!
Venom is a fast-paced thriller that is haunting as well as thrilling, and the novel bewitched me from beginning to end, and I still don’t know how Ty Mitchell, the author of Venom managed to do this! I think it is a combination of his flawless literature and his fast-paced narrative that had twists and turns galore. It could be these two attributes and so much more but what I do know for sure is that Mitchell managed to keep me hooked and racing to the end thanks to his literature that was spiked with adrenaline from start to finish.
Venom is a compelling novel that will introduce readers to the protagonist of the story, Jake Penny, a homicide detective who recently made a huge mistake, one that has cost him nearly everything. Penny is still trying to get over his mistake that revealed America’s bigger secret, but he focuses on a new mission, to stop and take down ‘government’s adversaries’ from retrieving and revealing new secrets. However, this is hard to do when he is being watched like a hawk by the NSA and while he struggles with his own past and demons and this book lovers is the short premise of the incredible Venom!
The story of Venom is an intriguing one and one that left me shocked at many points. I am not talking about a small amount of shock to book lovers but rather a massive shock because Venom provides a host of them and they are big ones! The twists and turns and the numerous shocking moments throughout the story thrilled me from start to finish and kept me entertained and turning the pages with haste. It is tough for an author to keep their readers engaged, especially when writing a thriller, so the fact that Mitchell was able to do this and so effortlessly shows us that he is an incredible author whose work should not be missed.
What unfolds throughout Venom is genuinely shocking, and I was always shocked and surprised because although I thought I knew where the book was going to go, it didn’t go that way and instead took a U-turn and it was exhilarating! The themes combined and laced throughout Venom perfectly compliment the atmosphere of the book and story; the reader will experience mystery, action, and thrilling moments and many more exceptional themes. As I read Venom, I found myself racing through it, turning the pages with haste thanks to the addictive nature.
Ty Mitchell is an author who has written a fantastic story and come up with a brilliant plot. Mitchell, from the very start sets the tone of the novel; he lets his readers know that this is going to be a dark and atmospheric book thanks to his literature and wow was it! Mitchell is an exceptional writer because he grabs his readers attention from the start very quickly and keeps them engrossed until the end. There are no long build-ups that drag in Venom; instead, the reader will be thrown into the thick of the story quickly, and the result of this is exciting (and slightly terrifying!)
Overall Venom is a superb novel that has everything a reader would want in a story; it has a thrilling narrative, magnificent plot development and excellent characterization that will thrill and excite its readers so of course, I have to award this impressive piece of literature five stars!
