Finn McCoy is a paranormal handler. He handles things that ordinary paranormal investigators can't or won't, and he often ends up cleaning up behind them.
For fifteen years, McCoy has turned his back on his hometown of Shallow Springs, Virginia, and the dark secrets the town harbors. But now an evil, unstoppable force has been unleashed on the unsuspecting residents of the town, and McCoy finds himself the only thing standing between the town and total destruction.
Homecoming, is a well-paced, well-written suspense horror. The main character Finn McCoy is down to earth and home-grown which makes him likable. He and his beat-up pick-up truck named Boo make a perfect pair. Mr. McCoy even has a girlfriend he apparently picked up on a previous case. Her name is Amanda and she seems to be the right temperament for a paranormal handler: smart and stubborn.
I enjoyed the way Langrel created and described McCoy's world. Much like our own, but the a few more shadows and a little less light. The story was uniquely presented, has a few twists and an overall happy ending for almost all (well someone has to die, it is after all a horror!). I didn't find the book scary at all but then again it takes a lot to give me goosebumps.
Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Amy Romine
