I recorded my 3rd episode of Walks & Talks where I give an update on my writing and talk about imposter syndrome.
It’s release day! Into the Storm is officially out! We have a ten episode season one planned for you, all available on Kindle Unlimited.
Odd number episodes follow my MC Jakobe and even number episodes follow Lauren’s MC Lexa.
It’s been a fun experiencing co-authoring for the first time, I hope it’s even more fun for you all to read.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I might go closer to 3.5 but I’m gonna round up to four. My favorite story was the first one by a long shot. The Polaroid man was such a cool concept for a villain. I wish I could’ve learned more about his history and about the metal that made his camera, especially at the end when the melted metal spoke. It almost sounded like the voice of Sauron in my head. Like the one ring was melted down and turned into a camera.
The second story was disturbing but was also incredibly well written and politically charged.
The stories in order of favorite to least favorite goes 1,2,4,3. I just couldn’t get into Aloft. It had some vivid imagery and great backstory but I just couldnt get into it. It was the only story that had a moment where I was bored.
Snapshot, Loaded, and Rain were non-stop action and thrills.
Loaded had the best characters of the three. Snapshot was the most original with the most potential and the coolest villain concept.
Rain had its ups and downs but I was never bored.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Okay here we go Mr. John Smith. I know you have this strange ability to see into the future but did you see this review coming? Well, did ya? You feeling lucky John? Cause I sure as hell am after reading this. I’m not as sad to finish it as I was the dark tower series (because i poured so much emotion into finishing those damn books) but this was quite an enjoyable read; one I could really sink my teeth into when given a full day to do so.
The development of John, his relationship with his family (and Sarah) and the progression of his ability/the perception of his ability by others, was the driving force of this novel. In fact, it was more entertaining than the ultimate climax of the text, which dealt with the question of “if you could stop Hitler before he rose to power would ya?”
John felt an inordinate amount of pressure from his gift, which I thought serviced this book well. Rather than making him a superhero, his gift became more a question of mankind and morality.
Just another lovely King book that makes him the legendary author he is.
