Review: The Inferno Collection by Jacqueline Seewald.

This is a well written and enticing book that could be read in one sitting. Being labeled a paranormal romance, I don’t see really much romance but there is some familiarity to a character having paranormal feelings, which I perceive as a gift of strong ESP. The story is justified to keep the reader turning pages. It’s more of a whodunit story, which makes it intriguing, interesting, mystifying, throughout the book, which entices the reader to the end results.

It’s about an English student, Lorette asking her friend, Kim who works as a librarian at the University if she knew of any Inferno Collection of books exist and are they locked away in some room off from the library. Kim has no knowledge of such a collection but Lorette goes on insisting they do exist and what she knows about them has place her in a dangerous situation. Other than that, Lorette could not tell Kim anything else because she feared she would be putting Kim in danger. Than a murder does take place but the police are calling it a suicide, but Kim, who has a paranormal gift senses more is going on, and she starts her journey into the unknown existence of an Inferno Collection of books….

Kim’s investigation brings her attention to professor Don Bernard, who she was attracted to when she was a student, plus psychic detective Mike Gardner fears Kim is getting herself deeper in trouble when some attempts on her life start to happen. These are the two guys in her life trying to keep her safe, or are they..?

Jacqueline Seewald continues with all the mystery behind the Inferno Collection of books while holding the “whodunit” murderer in the shadows, and going on creating an assortment of characters for the reader to follow and blame for all the creepiness and cold chills that keeps you reading…

This was a great read. I home there is more with these characters. Interesting lead players and a surprise ending ( )

An interesting book of the librarian sleuth genre. I would like to read the next book in the series to learn more about Kim. ( )

I liked the characters in this book, and of course, I liked the setting with a university librarian as the main character. The only thing I didn't like was the obvious "clue" that the librarian missed, at least it was very obvious to me. No spoilers here - but it did keep the book from being great to me instead it was just good.

Kim gets involved with murder when her friend, Loretta, is found dead of a drug overdose even though she had been clean for many years. Not believing it is an accident or suicide Kim sets out to find out who killed her Loretta. She also needs to find out what an Inferno Collection has to do with her death. Inferno Collections are something that old public libraries used to have, they are materials that are not considered "proper" for everyone. Sometimes they contained blue materials, something things with unpopular ideas but they were always locked up and only certain people had access.

I'll be moving on to the next book in the series. ( )

After reading The Drowning Pool by Jacqueline Seewald, I wanted to read the first book as well. The Inferno Collection was different although the main characters were the same. This book is a mystery thriller, a page-turner, darker in nature. Just like The Drowning Pool, the characters have real depth and the mystery is original and complex. I wouldn't categorize either novel as romantic suspense. More like romantic mystery; they are both mystery novels with a hint of the paranormal. The Inferno Collection is of literary quality. It's set at a university and anyone who's attended a university or taught at one can certainly relate to this novel. It's a very honest book, well worth reading. ( )
