Book of the Week: Breed by Owl Goingback

Besides having one heck of a cool name, Owl Goingback is also a very good writer. He knows how to craft a nice ghost story, with quite a bit of historical information about the location of his story. That happens to be St. Augustine, Florida for this book. There's something astir in the historic old Tolomato cemetary and the spirit of none other than Chief Tolomato enlists the help of a tour guide to aide him in stopping the deadly force that's been unleashed. There are some good comic moments between the deceased Chief and his helper, Ssabra Onih. Owl is also very adept at creating inventive and detailed ways for his characters to bite the dust. Breed is a very entertaining read from a relatively new writer who has alot of promise ahead of him. I give it **** out of *****.
