The Catcher’s Trap is about Andres, a lonely guy, who follows a stranger and his friends to a party where he’s kidnapped. He’s taken to a new dimension that looks and feels like hell itself.
When I finally turned that last page, the first word that came to my mind was “wow.” Like wow.
This book was amazing! I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did, but it literally took me on a ride. I could not put it down! It was way darker and graphic then I thought it would be, but I still loved it.
Henriquez, the author, has a gift when it comes to storytelling. His use of description was brilliant. His words latched onto me and captivated me to the very end.
At the start of the story, Andres, the main character, is a suicidal introvert with many inner demons, and I liked him. He’s a bit sad, but complex and realistic. I loved how much he grew and progressed in the story. The reader could definitely see him changing as the story went on and I felt myself rooting for him at the end. The other characters, like Claudia and Steve, were endearing and realistic and I instantly liked them as well.
Overall, this is a well-written dark fantasy that is a must read! It has unique story elements that make it standout from other books on the market and I think that’s what I loved most about it! I hated that it ended on a cliffhanger, but I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series. I highly recommend this to dark fantasy and horror fans.
Andres never lived up to his potential. While young, handsome and smart, his life-long struggle with anxiety turned him into a recluse, afraid to step out of his comfort zone. That is, until the night he is kidnapped — seized into an alternate universe and sold into slavery.
Soon enough, he discovers that his only chance of survival is to slay his own inner demons in order to fight the monsters ruling the world of The Mist.
Torture, death, and brutality will lead Andres on a journey foretold in ancient prophecies.
