About the Author

R. James Stevens, born in a small, sleepy town in Western Pennsylvania, had always taken a deep interest in reading and creative writing as a young boy. While focusing primarily on Sci-Fi and Fantasy as a child, he also found reading historical novels fascinating. Several of his literature teachers throughout his academic career encouraged him to pour his mind out onto paper when doing assignments, which freed his ability to write stories they way he imagined them, rather than sticking to strict conventions of storytelling. During his time in the US Air Force, he met his wife. He happily put writing on the back burner for nearly 15 years while he worked at his career to support his growing family, hoping that some day he would find a reason to put pen to paper once more. That day came when he and his son-in-law put their heads together to try to produce a comic book series. While that effort fizzled due to the pressures of everyday life, it did give birth, eventually, to the story contained within these covers.

This one's a tougher read than average. The author chose to use explanatory flashback sequences, and while that can be confusing to some, after a few chapters I found myself getting into the rhythm and almost expecting/wanting a flashback prior to or after a section. Flashbacks can be a great device, and Stevens has figured out the formula perfectly, IMO. I liked the author's usage of imagery and foreshadowing throughout - it set an ominous tone that framed the story nicely. It's a gritty story, and I have to admit that it was gut-wrenching at times to witness the downward spiral of the 3 main characters, but at the same time I found it to be an addictive page turner (I wound up reading 16 chapters in one day just because I had to know what came next). The story itself - what can I say without spoiling it. Stevens neatly connects the first chapter with the last, but left me wanting more in the 2nd book. Better than most I've read in a long time! Mazel.
