Heraclix & Pomp by Forrest Aguirre

Heraclix & Pomp by Forrest Aguirre

A Novel of the Fabricated and the Fey

That’s what this little book is being marketed as. Heraclix is a Golem. Who for the life of me I pictured as a cross between Frankenstein’s monster and Shrek.

Pomp (my favorite character) is a fairy who Heraclix saves as his creator tries to kill her.

They begin their journey to find out their real life stories. Forrest Aguirre writes beautifully-bringing alive all the destinations that these two characters take you to.

My favorite site in the story and one he writes well is our heroes trip to hell.

They walked up out of the sharp-ridged maze that they had been in since their introduction to Hell, up a smoldering mountainside, black with ash and white with smoke. An occasional burnt skeletal hand emerged, groped around, then disappeared again under the ash. 

Yeah..I don’t think I want a trip there anytime soon.

I’m giving it a three star because I did get lost at times in the politics of the story.

I did receive an arc copy of this book from the author-who is my Goodreads friend. In no way did that affect my review of this book. An honest review was done.
