Review of Anon by Peter Giglio

Rory Ellison, victim of his own misdeeds, wallows in misery. Then a door opens. Now he's got a new job, a dream assignment to rewrite the darkest mistake of his past, and a strange new companion in his head. Wielding powers beyond his comprehension and control, Rory returns to Faith.

She possesses the perfect husband, kids, and home. But when Rory falls back into her world, old wounds open wide, shattering her ideal life. 

At the center of the mayhem stands Anon, a seemingly benevolent organization with a sinister past of its own. "Helping you realize your dreams sooner," the company promises. But what do they stand to gain? How far will they go to get what they want? And if they make dreams a reality, what about nightmares? 

Only Michelle, a young girl with a strange gift, can defeat the evil threatening her family. But she must face fear, work with the ghosts of her enemy's past, navigate a maze of terror, and make the tough choice to grow up too soon in a world filled with evil and indifference. 

Hold on tight! Anon;a tale of corporate and familial terror that is unlike anything you've ever read.

So this happens to be the second novel that was graciously allowed to receive for review from Hydra Publications and like Andraste by Marisa Mills was not just an amazing book but also in its own league. It falls under Horror although truly think to enjoy it think of it as in the paranormal or supernatural arena. Its not really Horror as to more of the occult -Paranormal.  As an avid reader reader occasionally read some Horror novels and so found this something filled with the supernatural along with some new elements. Basically contained quite a premise to begin with and a magnificent story in the end.

At the center of Anon lies the organization of Anon. A company of sinister beginnings with a damning agenda. Rory Ellison a man who has made mistakes in his past is given the chance to reclaim what he has lost and what he most desires. Anon really is everything Rory could've asked for but the company has started to weave a dangerous web of misfortune and ultimate evil on the lives of people. Michelle who's the daughter of the woman Rory has always loved along with her twin siter , Dawn, may be the only two who can perhaps stop Anon's long-going evil corporate hold on society. Anon aware of Michelle and Dawn fights back revolving its sinister self.

As you can tell its a pretty fascinating book. Peter Giglio writes vividly and makes you go into a corporate Horror Paranormal powered novel. There are nightmare dreams and horrible revelations giving it a kick. The characters themselves carry their own distinctive mark against the backdrop of Anon.

Anon actually has a sequel to be titled Beyond Anon. Not at all surprised considering Anon was a thoroughly enjoyable Paranormal novel. Highly anticipating Beyond Anon!
Overall: Amazing read!
Genre: Horror 

Contains: Blood and Gore Scenes, Sexually-Charged Scenes, Foul Language
