HELLEQUIN – Hell of an adrenaline-filled ride

Koos Verkaik is back and he is back with yet another amazing and adventurous read that promises to keep you hooked, informed and above all glued to the book. We have lost count of times that we have read his book and have fallen short of words to write proses in its honour. So that is why we decided not just to give you a quick take on his new book, Hellequin but revisit the Author’s work too. So get ready for an adventure


We can’t put enough words into how grateful we were to get an exclusive advanced copy of the book shared personally by the author just before it is slated for its release. The New book is adrenaline infused as this time, Koos Verkaik not only mixes science, mystery and thrills but manages to thread in a lot of folklore elements that not only blew our minds but in turn ended up educating us a lot. So not only does this time, he brings mystery but there is the allure of a whole new world that he is introducing us to – The world of Hellequin. We are enchanted with this world.

So the book brings a very interesting chase-against-time kind of ride with this secret society and mysticism along with a wonderful well weaved plot that brings the captivating feature of Verkaik’s writing out.

In our previous reviews too, we have mentioned that Verkaik’s writing is completely different. This Netherland-based author has a unique way to combine science, mysticism and thrills to create a unique blend which is unlike anything we have ever seen. The Author’s range of books has been amazing and wowed us each time. No wonder he is nicknamed “The Dutch Stephen King”
