Review of HAUNTED CRUISE: THE SHAKEDOWN by Tanya R. Taylor
HAUNTED CRUISE: THE SHAKEDOWN, by the author of CORNELIUS and REVENGE OF CORNELIUS, is populated with some really strong characters, and alternatively some distinctly off-the-wall and/or repulsive characters. I almost think the plotting takes a back seat to the characterizations, which is fine with me as a reader. Definitely the horror element is on the gory side, but when the reader discovers the proximate cause of the manifestation, she or he will nod wisely thinking, "Oh, so that's why!" Ms. Taylor ties up that effect and cause neatly, in a taut retribution scenario. Perhaps best of all from my point of view, there is Character Evolution!
