    One thought on “No Vacancies Vol. 1”

    1. No Vacancies, Volume 1, is a collection of engaging short stories and poems by talented author and poet, Lucien Black. In “One More Sunday”, Detective Arkwright stumbles upon the journals of Gary Tenet, an ordinary beat cop who led a secret life as a superhero, the Protector. Arkwright’s pursuit of the man behind the goggles leads to several sad and stunning revelations, finally inspiring the detective to pick up where Tenet left off.“High Stakes” and “New World” are the stories of [...]

    2. No vacancies is a very light read, very smooth to go through, but a lot of fun as well. This is a book where each story keeps you turning the pages, and the supernatural, the superpowers, are brought to a more realistic feel, like the person can actually be beside you all along.It is a perfect light book for that casual day, or a perfect gift to an adventure seeker. Definitely one for the bookshelf.

    3. Lucien Blacks collection of short stories is entertaining to say the least. His story lines are fascinating and intense. He guides you down a path of visual adventure which I couldn't help but access my creative mind, drawing my own interpretation of the characters and the conflicts they faced from chapter to chapter.These stories were originally penned for the comic book genre which actually helped a typical non-fiction reader like myself stay glued to it's pages.Great storiesGreat bookI've alr [...]

    4. More like a 3.5 for me. Well written, interesting concept-like reading a graphic novel without the illustrations. I appreciated the inclusion of poetry. I will definitely recommend this to my husband who is both a comic book geek and a poet-this is right up his alley.

    5. Very enjoyable book. I have purchased the others in the series to find out what happens next. The stories are well written and keep your attention.

    6. A very detailed world, no question about that, and the stories are well structured, only hinting at a much larger world. The stories One More Sunday and Devotion are probably my favorite. The latter reading like what you would get if Alan Moore wrote an episode of Criminal Minds.My only complaints is that the stories are shorter than they need to be, and can feel a little rushed sometimes. All in all, five stars.
