Review of Fear of God

As I told you during my last post, I've been reading a book called Fear of God. I finished it yesterday and wanted to share with you what I thought.

Lucas Bishop is a college kid, living in a small town by the mountains. He has a loving mom, who takes care of him and their household, and a workaholic Dad who doesn't spend much time with the family. He lives a normal live, only disturbed by very real and constant nightmares. From one day to the next, his life shatters with a phone call, and the world around him collapses. The town becomes a war zone and the people he knew all his life turn into killing machines, without conscience or remorse. He finds himself hiding with a group of people, not knowing what has happened and trying to survive. Little by little, he discovers what has happened to the town, forcing him to make a decision: whether to remain a kid and hide, or become a man and fight on.

Written in the first person, the author Matthew R. Bell, involves you in the story from the first chapter. His characters are well defined, making you care for them from the moment you meet them. The dialog is entertaining and shows each character's unique personality. The story is full of action which he depicts in a way that makes you feel you are watching a movie. The plot is fluid and doesn't stall with unnecessary explanations or descriptions.

The writing could use some polishing, however this is not a distracting factor. This is a page-turner that kept me hooked. I've already gotten Book 2, Child of Recklessness, and I can't wait to start it.

You can get this book in Amazon and if you don't have a Kindle, you can still read it in your phone with he Kindle Cloud Reader.

Hope you give it a try.

Be safe!... and keep reading

It's been a while...

Hello there! It's been more than a month from my last post. A few things have kept me away and, unfortunately, I cannot promise this won't happen again. Until I write a best seller to make me a millionaire, my alter ego needs to keep holding a full time job. She also likes working out so, there goes a couple more hours a day. I keep telling her that I need to sit and write but lately she's not been paying too much attention to me.

To keep me entertained, I've been working on a promotional plan for Home by the Sea which will unravel in the next few months. On a previous post I mentioned that there was something in the works for which I would need your help. Well, this is it. Basically I will need you to convince all your family and friends to download Home by the Sea during a period of time that I will communicate later. The promotional plan includes some free videos and giveaways for all of you. I will providing more details as days pass, so keep checking back.

The other thing that has kept me busy these past few days is a book by a young author called Matthew R. Bell. He was kind enough to write a review for Home by the Sea which you can read here. He has an action/adventure series of two books called Trials of Strength. I'm half way through book one, Fear of God, and I'm having difficulty putting it down. I will share with you my final thoughts on the book once I'm done, but if you want to start checking it out, you can visit his blog.

As my friend Porky Pig would say "That's all, Folks!" I will do my best to update you sooner than a month but don't wait standing up. In the meantime, be safe and keep reading.
