Josh Aterovis has upped the suspense factor to a new level in The Truth of Yesterday, in both the natural and supernatural realms, while at the same time, offering readers an element of romance that brings everything into a wonderful balance. Each new character who is introduced has a distinct and compelling voice, particularly Tad Yoder, a teen runaway who Killian rescues, as well as Chris Silver, a young woman who helps Killian on his investigation. I sincerely hope they will each make appearances in the books to come.
Danger and intrigue from the present, as well as from the distant past influence Killian, his choices, and the outcomes. “Like echoes returning from a great distance or ripples in a pond, the past can come back to haunt us with truths we tried to ignore, tormenting us with losses too great to absorb.” How Killian handles those distant truths remains to be seen. One thing is certain: I’ll be there to find out.
