Duncan P. Bradshaw is demonstrating himself as a storyteller unbound by genres and refusing to be pigeonholed as someone who writes a particular type of book. He has written stories about zombies, missions to Mars, and now, with Hexagram, he delves into history with a twisted tale that could only be spun by Duncan P. Bradshaw.
I was initially drawn to Hexagram by the ancient Incan ritual, wondering where he would go with this story. How would Duncan Bradshaw play this one out? Sometimes the best part of a book is not the final destination, but the journey to get there.
Hexagram was a complete departure from what I have grown accustomed to from this author. His previous works have really highlighted his unique sense of humor; Hexagram had a small sprinkling of it here and there. Additionally, it is a book where the characters were devices to move the story forward. The author spent the necessary time to make the characters tangible and interesting, and while I didn’t really connect with any of them, I don’t think I was supposed to.
Hexagram was an engaging story that was woven together with care and attention to detail. Duncan P. Bradshaw has left me pondering over a couple of things - How do I categorize this book? And what is he going to do next? I am anxious to see what kind of twisted world comes from him next.
