Pandemonium by J.C. Michael

I received this book to give an honest review.

Title: Pandemonium
Author: J.C. Michael
Published: Aug. 4, 2018

As the year draws to a close, a mysterious stranger makes a proposition to club owner Warren Charlton. It’s a deal involving a brand new drug.

The good news: the drug is free. The bad news: it comes at a heavy price... promising much but delivering far more. Euphoria and ecstasy. Death and depravity.

One big night. One new pill. It all awaits those who try Pandemonium.
My Rating: 

So I have to say this book started off good and then I kind of got bored then about 65% in it started picking up and I was intrigued on how this was going to end. So we mostly are in a club which is brand new and owner Warren Charlton ends up passing out a new drug that was given to him. Yet what he doesn't realize is that this drug is not going to be as good as everyone will think. It seems what will be causing the havoc is not human.  If you are not into the scene of drugs being used, graphic scenes then this may not be the book for you. 
I will say this I kind of wondered what the Painted killer had to do with it as that just was one of those characters you could have done without. For me, the plot just dragged on more than it should have and I didn't enjoy any of the characters. I will say the whole killing scenes towards the end of the book made it worth me sticking with it and finishing it.
