Amateur theatre director Stephen Thorne plots a sensational production of a Greek tragedy in order to ruffle feathers in the small city where he lives. Accompanied by an eccentric and fly-by-night cast and crew, he prepares for opening night, unaware that as he unleashes the play, he has drawn the attention of ancient and powerful forces.

Michael Williams’ Vine weds Greek Tragedy and urban legend with dangerous intoxication, as the drama rushes to its dark and inevitable conclusion.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This story had a unique concept as it reads like an ancient play, not a novel. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to connect with the set-up, or the characters.

I felt that the story jumped around without a central plot. Just as I was beginning to understand and become interested in a specific character’s story, the book jumped away to someone else entirely and seemed to start over. This disconnect led me to give up on reading the book.
