Overview

Expect everything to change . . .

Having escaped the storms of Betelgeuse and the schemes of Jannah's inhabitants, Sandfl y and HardCandy make their way back to Earth. They have a message to deliver. A society to free. And A~A3 is with them. Their mission is simple, and just. What could possibly go wrong?

They reach Earth, only to fi nd a diff erent world, an unexpected domain. One they can no longer connect with.

They are stranded, hopelessly separated beneath a wasteland of death and a planet of rules. Ulti mately, Sandfl y is alone, and Earth's freedom relies on him and his newfound faith. But does his mission even matter anymore?

He's seen as a misfi t and a throwback. A symbol for all that's evil. Will anyone listen to the message he's come so far to bring?

Perhaps he's the last freehead.

    Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

    "Freeheads" is the third book in 'The Dark Trench Saga'. I definitely recommend reading these books in order. "Freeheads" takes place in a society where some people are implanted with a sensor making it almost impossible for them to disobey a command. Tthey have instant access to all the information in the world.. Their owner can track them and bring them great pain if they do not obey. In book 2 Sandfly and HardCandy are on board the DarkTrench, a space ship. His mission is to explore Betelguese. They discover an Earth-like planet with an advanced civilization. Kerry Nietz wraps up this series in book 3. She ends this trilogy just as boldly and strongly as she began it. Once again we meet up with Sandfly and HardCandy. Sandfly is a debugger; that means he is forcxed to serve his master. The masters are Abduls. A Freehead is a person without an implant. Sandfly discovers the true identity of A3 and who A is not. Sandfly plans to return to Earth to see if his message was delivered. While he thinks he has been gone less than a year he has been gone over 40 years. A was sent to Earth to enslave the people but A3 is the one who bent to Earth to free man.

    This book has strong Christian undertones. I found it fascinating. I am not giving anything away by revealing that A3 is the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The essence of this plot is good vs evil. While the story is very entertaining it has so much more to offer. There is a strong message in this book, a message you will not want to miss. I love this series! You won't want to miss this one.

    When I got this book to read, I didn’t realize it was actually the last book in a trilogy. The author did a great job of filling in enough detail that I never felt lost or had a hard time picking up with the story. I do, however, recommend reading the books in order since that’s how the author intended the story to be told.

    But WOW! What can I say? I read a lot. I find a lot of books I enjoy, and I’m not stingy with my five star reviews, but books like this make me consider that maybe I need to be, because books such as this really belong in a different category all together. From the beginning of the story I was enthralled with Kerry Nietz vision of the future. Sometimes I was a little terrified. So many of the issues -- faith vs indoctrination, freedom vs control, truth vs deceit -- are utterly relevant for today, and even serve as a warning when we consider where our future may lead. While the setting was a little different, it was easy to envision how technology, such as iPhones and the global network, could evolve into the ability to directly stream information via a chip implanted within the brain.

    This story is both captivating and thought provoking, with characters who gripped me from beginning to end. The action is fast-paced and the plot is wrought with tension; yet there are tender moments that allow the reader to experience new emotions, new lines of reasoning and discovery right along with Sandfly. Amongst the turmoil and chaos of Sandfly’s world, we find beauty. I could gush for another couple of pages but I think you get the point. I absolutely loved this book and am loving the series as I read it now. I’ve been enthusiastically recommending it and will continue to do so. I even bought the series for my mom! Freeheads , and the entire Dark Trench trilogy is a definite must read. The story will stay with you in unexpected ways long after you’ve put the book down.

    Well worth reading.

    January 9, 2012
    Jerry R. Curry, author of "From Private to General."

    FREEHEADS,book 3 of the DarkTrench saga, scoops up all the loosed bits and pieces of the first two books anjd brings them to a more than satisfying conclusion. Nietz has done well in crafting a trilogy where each book can stand on its own and yet, at the same time, he builds believably on the preceeding book. It is a significant effort. Creting new worlods and vocabularies is not an easy task, but Nietz presses on to a fitting conclusion.

    The writer, with no smasll amount of effort and dialog, creates a reasonable world for the reader that is modern yet makes sense. The protagonist, Sandfly, seems to have a touch of Henry Kissinger in him. He needs it to complete the task he has chosen for himself.

    Theere aren't many of us around who read Azimov's Foundation Series when it first come out in pulp science fiction, but that is what Nietz's writing reminds me of. It is an intelligent series written by an intelligent writer who has much to say.

    Awesome!

    Love, love, love this book! I read the first two in The Dark Trench Saga and anxiously awaited the third - it did not disappoint. The characters are so very real and find their way into your heart and mind. All three books made we wonder "what if..." Rails, Freehead - it could be scary! Kerry delivers a wonderful message in a very entertaining way. Definitely recommend this book!
