Wolf, Adam: A Pale Horse – Installment I (2013)

A Pale Horse - Adam Wolf

Poor Eugene. His curiosity is as mine – incorrigible. You just know he is going to get himself into trouble with it. And he does. Does he ever.

This is when he should have stepped from the restroom, allowed the door to swing shut behind him, this is when he should have made a beeline to his brother’s Volvo and never looked back, purged his memory of what had transpired, of the stench, of its source, that wraithlike man who he felt with near certainty was not a man at all. But alas, …

And so the apocalysm begins – with a visit to the bathroom.

The characters were great. I got a pop-idol (not mentioning names) sensation with “perfect” Priscilla describing Lukey Grail. And then we have her little brother Warren! What a wonderful description of just how obnoxious 10 year old siblings can be.

Eugene and the siblings were my favorites. All three of them are incredibly pains, yet somehow likeable.

Luna Perez is the kind of person who has seen the underbelly of life and survived all it has thrown at her thus far. Whether she survives what Eugene brought into the world is difficult to say.

A Pale Horse perfectly illustrates what modern transportation can mean when it comes to disease. The swine-flu comes to mind.

Adam Wolf has stated that A Pale Horse will come in installments. The ending of episode 1 was in a perfect spot. I did not feel as though I was left hanging at all and actually thought it was the end – albeit an abrupt end. Now I know better and will probably get the second installment.

The author warns of R-rated content. There wasn’t – not in Norway anyways. But if you do not like “bad language” you will be in trouble.
