#BlogTour Mime by Chrissey Harrison

It’s the last day on the Blogtour Mime by Chrissey Harrison and also my turn.About the Author

Chrissey Harrison – Author of supernatural thrillers and other spec genre fiction.

What can you expect from my books? Monsters, magic, action and adventure, and fragile human characters trying to muddle through as best they can. They make mistakes and bad choices sometimes, and they have to learn to recognise their own strengths and weaknesses and turn to their friends and loved ones for help and support.

My debut novel, “Mime”, released June 2020. Working on this book has been an epic 10 year journey learning how to be a writer. Although Mime was my first project, it has routinely been on the back burner while I worked on other projects. You can discover the published ones in the books section of my website, and novelette “The Star Coin Prophecy” is available as a free download for subscribers. Subscribe to her newsletter for free bonus content

I’m a science geek, gamer, fan of sci-fi and fantasy, and wearer of many hats. Metaphorical hats, that is, not so much real hats. At the moment I mostly wear my writer hat, my designer and my crafter hat. I also used to wear my film maker hat when producing movies with my amazing colleagues over at The Great Escape.

I live in Clevedon in a creaky old Victorian terrace with my partner and my 17 year-old goldfish Ambition. One day I will own a cat… one day.

About the book

There’s a supernatural killer on the loose…

Elliot Cross didn t believe in monsters. At least, not until his brother died at the hands of something unnatural. Four years later and a string of impossible deaths leave the police baffled. Consumed by a desire to shine a journalistic light on the supernatural world, Elliot sees a chance to make a difference. Enlisting the help of his (only) employee, Samantha, he quickly identifies the culprit a demonic mime artist whose invisible creations are fatally real.

Way out of his depth, Elliot’s only hope is renowned demon hunter Gabriel Cushing. But tracking down Gabriel is only the beginning The search for a way to end the demon forever will take Elliot and Sam across the country, uncovering lost history, buried secrets, and a few new truths about themselves.

Review

Elliot and Samantha report the news, but not just any old news. They go looking for stories that seem a bit peculiar, the things that don’t appear to have a logical explanation. They are on the hunt for the supernatural occurrences that everyone else dismisses as accidents or freak ones at that.

Elliot and Samantha report news, but not just any old news. They go looking for stories that seem a bit peculiar, the things that don’t appear to have a logical explanation. They are on the hunt for the supernatural occurrences that everyone else dismisses as accidents or freak ones at that.

But Elliot knows when something isn’t quite right, even when the police are willing to just sweep odd deaths and accidents under the rug. There is something or someone spreading death around like butter on hot toast. It’s glaringly obvious to some that something evil is up, but others prefer their bread without a dip in the toaster.

I think this is a nice little juggling act of magical realism, the supernatural, the macabre and the secrets that live in the shadows. It’s one thing searching for something not quite of this world to blame and focus your energy on, but it is quite another altogether when your suspicions become a reality. The next mystery you solve or stone you look under might just be hiding a doorway to hell, a gaggle of demons – is it a group, swarm or perhaps just a gang? Is it true or are they figments of the imagination? Or is it all simply just an over-active imagination. Welcome to the world of demons and portals.

It has the quirky charm of Butchers Dresden Files. The kind of characters who just happen to have a penchant for the inexplicable, whilst the world around them has to remain completely oblivious to that fact. A little wit and a pinch of horror, which goes well with psych thriller and killer vibe.

I enjoyed the way Harrison played with all the different elements of this read. How the mind is programmed to evaluate certain oddities in a way that excludes anything other than what we consider to be the norm. This appears to be the first in the series, it will be interesting to see where Harrison takes Weird news next. Just how dark are we going to get?
