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
