  • Such great potential, but disappointing. 2.75 star

    I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. First off, I give this novel a solid 2.75, and that’s because I greatly enjoyed the fact that many of the characters had distinct voices despite all of them being in first person. Each narrative is labeled, but I would have recognized Peter, Ria, Gwen, and Hamza without the labels. These characters have depth, and I really wanted to know what happened to them. My first big problem with this novel is the lack of editing. The story jumps back and forth between past and present tense. It doesn’t make the novel unreadable, but it can be a bit jarring, and it gets worse the further you go in the narrative. This book is nowhere near ready for publication. My second big problem (and the one that disappoints me the most) is the fact that the author seemed to be trying to write three different stories. There’s one that’s sort of a thriller involving ghosts, revenge, and organ-stealing. There’s another one about a man and his dog and their journey. The last is about self-discovery and adventure. On their own, these stories would have been great to read about (especially with the characters the author created), but together it makes one giant mess. Third, Peter just drops out of the story, and I really wanted to know what happened to him. The last you see of him he is in a terrifying situation, and then another of the characters gets an email from him, so you assume he got away. But how? Where is he now? What’s he doing? None of these questions are answered. Then the story just stops. It has no proper ending. I don’t know if the author was going for a cliff-hanger, but if he was, it wasn’t well executed. That left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Overall, the three stories in this book have great potential, on their own. It isn’t a bad read, and the characters are fun to read about. But this book will frustrate you. Advice to the author: Outline better and stick to one story. You have a knack for writing in-depth characters that the audience wants to follow and invest their time in. Also, practice more with tenses. When you nail all this, you will write stellar novels.

    Thanks for your feedback!
