Andrew pens "Bloodbath Ritual", a murder mystery, in a plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. I found great character development throughout the book with a main character that is totally likable. My only problem was that I kept looking for the ritual, which doesn't come into the story line until the end. Also the character descriptions were a bit long for my taste in the beginning of the story, but by the time I reached the end, I did understand why. All in all this was a good read and enjoyed reading it.

I give "Bloodbath Ritual" a 4 star rating.
