Review: A Being Otherwise by Chris Kassel

 Wayne Hrovat is a quintessential cog-in-a-wheel; at forty-one, he has worked as an accountant in the bowels of Ford Motor Company for fifteen years. He is unmarried and lives with his ailing eighty-something mother.
He is also mildly schizophrenic.
When downsizing costs him his position, he takes a consulting job at a manufacturing plant in rural Michigan and discovers that the town has a dark history of unsolved murders and lost persons. He soon finds that he is both an outsider and an integral part of the continuing nightmare.
As the story progresses, it becomes clear that his damaged psyche has been annexed by an opportunistic demon, and the two mental states joust inside until the climactic ending.

                                                                My opinion:
                                I received a copy in exchange for an honest review  

 A Being Otherwise is a horror/fiction story based on the crazy experience Wayne Hrovat had at Creston. The plot is mindblowing with so many twists. The storyline has a slow steady development. It is told from a third POV in the present time with a few references to the past as an explanation to recent events. There are a few gruesome scenes but nothing extreme. The author's writing skills are incredible. He described the scenes with such a great detail that makes them come alive in front of your own eyes. I am impressed with the professional language that is used and the referrals to religious, medical and judicial information.  This novel is captivating,
I enjoyed reading it and I will rate it with 5 stars.
