To celebrate the official release of Broken Branches, by M. Johnathan. Lee, I thought we’d take another look at the review I gave it a few months back.
Published by the unique Hideaway Fall comes Broken Branches, a remarkable tale of an ancient family curse. Ian Perkin’s story is told through a reliable third person perspective. As a loving husband and father, he seeks to uncover the truth of the curse that has plagued his family for generations.
Author M. Jonathan. Lee has a way with expression and imagery, drawing particular attention to the gnarled tree in Ian’s family garden, which becomes a character in its own right. It acts as a sinister metaphor throughout the novel, a symbol of the family’s curse.
At times, Ian’s character appears vulnerable, left emotionally scarred by the loss of family members over the years. At other times, he stands as a courageous father figure, hell bent on solving the mystery of the family curse and any obstacles that may arise.
This was a dark and sinister tale that held my attention from the first page. If you enjoy stories shrouded in mystery, deeper meaning, with sudden twists and good tension building, then I would recommend Broken Branches.
Rated 5 stars.
Thank you for joining me in celebrating the official release of Broken Branches.
I honestly cannot recommend this book enough.
