Review of Edgar Wilde and the Lost Grimoire – Paul Ramey

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It’s reasonably short (no idea what the page count is because of the Kindle format, but it took me about 80 minutes to read), but it sucked me in quickly. It felt like a YA version of a Stephen King or F. Paul Wilson novel (Wilson actually has a YA series about New Jersey that had a similar feel), which is a strong endorsement to me. The mysteries weren’t profound, exactly, as is typical of novels in this genre, but the characters were compelling, and it was well-written and well-paced. I’d love to see more stories with these characters, to develop them more deeply – for example, I’d like to know more about Shelby’s background. She’s not a MPDG, but knowing more about her backstory would make her motivations clearer. 

Excellent first novel – more!
