Title: Hellrider
Author: JG Faherty
Genre: horror
August 8th 2019 
After being burned alive by a gang, the Hell Riders, he used to belong to, Eddie Ryder returns as a heavy-metal spouting ghost with a temper that's worse now than when he was alive. At first he is nothing more than a floating presence, depressed he has to spend eternity watching his teenage brother, Carson, and ailing mother struggle without him. Then he develops powers. And he can control electricity. He can conjure the ghostly doppelganger of his motorcycle, Diablo, and fly across the sky, but he can't escape the boundaries of his hometown, Hell Creek. Eddie decides to exact his revenge on the bikers who killed him. Before he can do more than scare some of the bikers, however, he discovers something even better: he can posses people. He uses this ability to get the gang members to attack each other, and to deliver a message to the current leader, Hank Bowman: Eddie's Coming. Spouting fire and lightning from his fingers and screaming heavy metal lyrics as he rides the sky above the town of Hell Creek, he brings destruction down on all those who wronged him, his power growing with every death. Only Eddie's younger brother, Carson, and the police chief's daughter, Ellie, understand what's really happening, and now they have to stop him before he destroys the whole town.

My thought
Rating: 2
Would I recommend it? no
Will I read anything else by this author ? maybe
Will this did kind of  remind me of the movie Ghost Rider  in  a way that was the only thing I actually liked about it, there was times i just couldn't get in to the book which is sad because I love horror but this one was a let down, it just didn't work for me, it just didn't feel like it was a horror book .With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read it and review it.
