It’s getting close to a certain time of the year now and being a devout disbeliever I don’t really take part in the usual preparations, celebrations or general brouhaha associated with it. Because of this fact, I decided to save my last Badger Supernatural Special until today in a bid to redress the balance a little. This title is by Bron Fane which is a pen name used by R. L. Fanthorpe writing on his own for a change. Let’s cut to the tagline shall we;
Man had raised a fiend which nothing could chain
Badger regular Harry Fox turns in a stellar cover for this one depicting three cloaked men carrying a cross in a hopefully disastrous attempt to ward off a giant demon which has materialised before them. Their fiendish nemesis is great – all pointy teeth and talon-like nails although he does have a decidedly worried expression on his face.
Time now to read on and see who wins this eternal struggle between good and evil, I know who I’ll be rooting for!
And with this book, I have sadly reached the end of the Badger shelf in my library so this post will be the last entry in this long running series. I hope that you’ve enjoyed the multitude of covers presented along the way as much as I have reading each novel, your frequent comments seem to suggest that you have. Thanks for sticking with me and sharing your thoughts each week, it’s been a pleasure to have you all along for the ride. I’ll just have to find an alternative reading source for my lazy Sundays during 2016 now. Last chance for your comments on this final Badger book or the series as a whole.
