The main character, Dylan Cold, accidentally finds himself in the middle of an international crime ring.  Theses criminals are determined to find a historical document, known as the American Lease, which could drastically alter the future of America.

The writer did an excellent job portraying the emotions of the characters.  The story is well written and easy to follow.  It is filled with suspense and a joy to read.  I highly recommend this book.

The Girl in the Box Series

The main character is a teenage girl with superpowers.  Her mother kept her locked in the house for over a decade.  However, the mother goes missing and various organizations are determined to capture the girl.

My review of this book series is mixed.  I enjoyed the way the writer described the characters and the scenarios.

My main complaint about the book was it didn’t seem logical.  There were to many things that were not explained and certain situations seemed excessive.

Dave the Depressed Alcoholic Superhero by E.D. Wallace

This story is an interesting twist on the superhero genre.  Dave has superpowers, but he also has family issues, work drama, and a major drinking problem.  His life is a mess.  He is nothing like you would expect a superhero to be.

Instead of just being a disappointment to everyone around him, Dave decides to start using his powers to do good in the world.  However, he makes a lot of mistakes and ends up being investigated for murder.

I enjoyed reading the book.  I found it to be funny and entertaining.

All Together Now by Robert Kent

The government and a soda manufacturer team up to create a drug that will make people passive and agreeable.  The drug is believed to be a cure all for societies problems.

However, the drug has a major side-effect.  If used excessively, people become sick and turn into zombies.  Also, anyone that has traces of the drug in their system will turn into a zombie upon their death.

This is an excellent book.  It’s entertaining, as well as thought provoking.  The characters are relatable and it’s easy to feel wrapped up in their stories.

 

Cell Block Z by Matt Handle

The zombie apocalypse starts when a new lethal injection drug is given to an inmate.  The inmate dies, but quickly turns into a reanimated corpse and goes on a killing spree.  The guards, witnesses, and the warden become his first victims and also turn into zombies.

The story is enjoyable and the characters are entertaining.  My only complaint is the abrupt ending.  It leaves the reader with a lot of unanswered questions.

Next Afterburn by Scott Nicholson

Massive solar flares soak our planet in radiation and bring about an apocalyptic event.  Millions die from the blast.  Most of the remaining population (human and animal) become mutants.  There are only a small number of humans left and they are fighting for their survival.

The story is captivating at times and full of interesting twists.  However, the ending leaves the reader with to many questions and puts a damper on the entire book.

All Good Deeds by Stacy Green

The main character is a former social worker, turned private investigator.  She became disillusioned with the criminal justice system, so she stated killing murders, kidnappers, and child molesters that were able to avoid prison.

The story is full of mystery and plot twist that will keep you guessing.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it.
