Publisher's Summary

Three lovers. Two demons. One mystery.
When a shadowy Baron asks three fearless demon hunters to find a lost collection of jewelry, little do they know that the gems might be owned by the daughter of Satan himself.
Their hunt leads into the distant past for clues about a lost woman who leaves a trail of destruction wherever she goes. Beautiful, deadly, and immortal, she moves through the world making chaos and converting humans to the ranks of evil.
But not all of her converts are happy, and an ancient succubus will side with the hunters, making the search for Elizabeth a race against time as the bodies pile up under the Florida sun.
If they lose, they'll serve Elizabeth for eternity. If the hunters are smart, they might live, and if they're lucky, they might even win.
Come stalk the night with the fearless.

Immortal Hunters

The Forest Bull is the story of a group of immortal hunters in a world where many of these immortals are the creatures of nightmare, preying on the innocent, unless stopped. From various walks of life, people have risen up that have chosen to hunt those of these creatures, and like in the TV series Supernatural (a favorite of mine) there is a loose affiliation of these hunters.

Just a note on the audiobook version - the book itself is written from the first person of a male, but the narrator is female. This is a bit disorienting at the start, as when the story starts, you haven't been introduced to the narrator, so initially may draw the assumption that the character is female, but be advised, it isn't. I haven't come across this setup before (female narrator of a first person male story).

On the narration however, Rebecca Cook is fantastic, and does a great job on all the voices, male and female. Initially when I was listening, I thought the book was narrated by Katey Sagal, and prompted myself to check, Needless to say I'd recommend her narration to anyone, and will definitely be looking for more books narrated by her.

Another note on the story, the summary describes the trio of hunters as "Three lovers". This is accurate, but in all honesty was a little off-putting to my male preconceptions. When I see the term "lovers" in the book summary I immediately think of books that usually feature unarmed, topless, buff, beefcake dudes on the cover (as opposed to the Conan-type books with armed, topless, buff, beefcake dudes on the cover). Anyhow, yes they are lovers, but any of you males like myself who may think, 'oh gee, this is going to be full of steamy romance etc", be advised that this is not the case. Yes there is some adult material, but not too much, and actually not between the "lovers".

All these notes out of the way, what did I think of the story? Loved it. Every so often I read a book that doesn't seem to be treading the same safe territory with concepts and mythology, and manages to inject a lot of new slants to things, and you feel like you have someone describing a unique vision of a world. It is a great feeling when you come across one of these. I felt this book met that in spades. The characters are well written, and a lot of the interplay between them is fantastic. I also like that the "baddies" weren't really one dimensional, or "demonised" for want of a better term, and everything was a straight black and white. It isn't like a lot of books where the author makes you hate them, and then perpetually drags out their existence and tormenting of people in the book to the point where you want them to just get it over. They are all dealt with fairly, and quickly. And in at least one case for me, you may actually start to like them.

Spellbinding

Would you consider the audio edition of The Forest Bull to be better than the print version?

I thoroughly enjoyed the audio of this novel. I haven't read the print version but enjoyed being able to indulge in a good storyline whilst going about my day.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the character development, especially that of the three lovers. The author shows real insight in being able to write so skilfully from the minds of both men and women.

What about Rebecca Cook’s performance did you like?

She was a great choice for the reading. I loved her accent changes for the different characters and her pronunciation of quite difficult European words.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was absolutely horrified by the description of the predatory wasps. It was so well done that even though it was awful to contemplate, I couldn't stop listening. I felt as though the author portrays vulnerability exceptionally well.

Any additional comments?

I listened to an audio version of this novel and found it very hard to switch off. I felt as though I was dropped instantly into the action, scrambling to keep up with the strong male patriarch of the strange little family, as he went about his killing occupation. It was gripping and at times, so graphically explained that it felt real and made me fearful of actual monsters disguised as humans, who could potentially jump out at me. I was powerless to second guess the plot or the direction of the storyline, led like a lamb to the slaughter at every turn, forced to go around corners where surprises would jump out at me without warning. The descriptive elements are so strong that the reader is there, in the centre of the action, smelling the aromas, hearing the sounds and experiencing everything that the writer is conveying. It’s a masterpiece which utterly took me by surprise, not because I wasn’t expecting it, because a reader always hopes, but because it wouldn’t be out of place on a lofty shelf with Edgar Allan Poe. I felt desperate when I got to the end of the novel, because it isn’t completely resolved and I will have to buy the next one. If I could give it ten stars, I most certainly would!

A well-crafted supernatural fantasy

Any additional comments?

A well-crafted supernatural fantasy with impressive use of language and imagination.
I haven’t read much fantasy since my teens for some reason, but I will be rectifying that now and will definitely delve into more of Terry Maggert’s fantasies!

Hero's with a delicious twist.

It's not easy to find a conceptually new set of hero's but Terry Maggert has created a gem of a team. A team you wish to be involved with be it beating horrors or their unique home life.
The story kept my interest throughout and although I was happy at its finale, I was left wanting more. Narrated by Rebecca Cook the story came alive in its horror, sexualisation manner. Superb and well worth the journey.
