I think since school is out for the summer, I'm going to get back onto themed blog posts. Saturdays are a good day to have Lazy Saturdays and in this particular post, I will talk about what almost every other blogger in the blogosphere is talking about: Summer Reading.
I've actually had the pleasure of reviewing two books this summer. I am a member of Reader Spoils, a website which introduces new authors to readers who are interested in reading their books. I'm always up for a good book and since I'm sitting on a very rough manuscript myself, I'm always interested in helping a fellow writer get the word out. So, in short, I jumped at the chance.
The story unfolds into a dark background, spanning over 30 years, that eventually connects the past with the present. Preacher, a serial killer who uses Christian propaganda to control others, eludes police at every turn. Eventually, FBI Agent Travis puts the 30-year puzzle together to corner Preacher and end the murder spree.
The story is quite short (just 128 pages). Truth to tell, I would have loved to see McDaniel develop his characters more fully; I only got a "taste" of the characters when, deep down, I feel there was more to learn about them. All in all, I'd recommend the book for a quick read (I read it this past weekend when we went up to Atlanta to watch the Braves game).
I look forward to McDaniel's newest book in the series: Like a Thief in the Night: Stolen Soul Book II which comes out later this month. To learn about Stolen Soul: In the Beginning or the second book in the trilogy, visit McDaniel's website.
