Blind Isolation by Henry Basset

Feelings of depression, loss, and defeat hit us when we least expect it. But, in this world, if someone walked down the wrong alleyway, they disappeared without a trace. Martha Railer struggled to cope with her loss, whilst her private world was invaded by the struggles of others. Meanwhile, a mysterious rider arrived in the town yet, despite his apparent confidence, was forced to battle new challenges brought about by his own loss. (taken from Goodreads)

Thank you to the author for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion. This is available now on Amazon Kindle and Kobo.

Blind Isolation is the second book in the Dead Chronicles of Martha Railer, the first being The Dark Stalkers. As with the first book, I really can’t compare it to anything else. Part of the reasoning for that is that there is no dialogue at all. This could be a little jarring at times, but it was also an incredibly bold choice.

I do feel that it worked better in Blind Isolation than it did in Dark Stalkers, although it could just be that I was expecting it and was less surprised. I also thought that it allowed the author to explore grief in a more introspective way. I do wish that there was a little more revelation regarding the mysterious addition, however.

While not a long book, Blind Isolation requires more of a commitment than shorter novels generally do, simply because of the nature of the story. It is an interesting and creatively told story.
