Zack Fortune is a successful lawyer and a down-to-earth man who knows what he wants. He’s cold, rational, and he certainly doesn’t believe in the supernatural. His life revolves around his career, his best friend, Sam, and the women who he dates for short periods of time and then dumps when he loses his interest. Zack lives in the real world, has everything under control and he likes it this way. So, when Clarissa, Sam’s wife, asks him to be her subject for a past life regression session, he decides to do it only to humor her. Hypnosis never harmed anyone.
Against all odds, the unexpected happens, and Zack goes into a deep trance. But what he sees doesn’t seem to have anything to do with a possible past life: a terrifying demon claws its way up his lying body to clutch at his throat, telling him that he has finally come. Scared out of his mind and completely disoriented, Zack jumps up and runs out the door. He doesn’t understand his vision and he’s not even sure if it was real. The only thing he can do is go on with his life and forget what happened. Unfortunately, he will soon realize that getting out of the trance so suddenly caused unbelievable and horrible consequences.
It doesn’t take long until Zack witnesses the first of many terrible deaths he will have to witness without having the slightest power to act and save the victims: a girl jumps off a roof right after she calls his name. When her feet leave the edge of the roof, Zack feels how his body becomes paralyzed, making it impossible for him to scream or even breathe. He can’t control his reactions and he cannot save the girl. Soon he will understand that he is doomed to go through this over and over again, even when he might have a chance to help the dying ones. He feels lost, helpless, and ready to break down.
DEATHLOOP is so brilliantly written that the reader will experience each and every emotion at the same time with Zack. While he is going insane with trying to find an explanation and stop these bloody deaths, the readers will go insane with putting the pieces together and solving the mystery. Why did Zack have that vision? Why do these people call out for his help before they die? What are the connections between the characters? DEATHLOOP will keep you turning the pages, desperate to find out the meaning of what’s happening to Zack.
G. Brailey created a dark, intriguing novel with a very original storyline, and complex characters. The story jumps from one character to another, but in the end you will see how everything comes together and makes perfect sense. I’m not going to spoil it for you, but I will say the ending is completely unexpected and it will leave you drained. You might even start questioning your own beliefs regarding life, death, reincarnation, and everyone’s role in this world.
