|The Consecration of Jacob Jordaens|
by Michael Brown
Genres: Paranormal, Thriller
Jake Jordaens moves from New Orleans to Providence, Rhode Island with his adoptive mother Lexis. At the tender age of 19 Jake is struggling with paranormal visions, college admissions, and his own identity - due to being adopted and also confusion as to his own sexual persuasion. Combine all this with falling into an underground ring of mafia run illegal activities primarily consisting of child pornography marketing both videos and children to pedophiles, and poor Jake has quite a lot on his plate.
This was a very quick read, most of it in one sitting as it was a bit hard to put down. This book is not for young adults nor the faint of heart as to the illicit subject matter that it does cover. While the descriptions are not entirely graphic, the author does a good job of providing the reader with mental images that could be hard for sensitive or squeamish readers to deal with.
