The first Amazon review of the book says, ‘I was mesmerized reading this book and finished it in one sitting.’ It has been an absolute pleasure working with you, and I learned a great deal from you too.Darren Franklin – author of Escaping the Empire
The challenge was to expand the narrative in a way which added texture and nuance to the story, not just add bulk for the sake of it. I wanted to give readers more of an insight into Darren and the other protagonists’ inner lives as they navigated the events he described on the page.
I think we successfully combined ‘page-turning action and suspense’ with real emotional weight.
As one Amazon reviewer put it, ‘I was not ready for the crashing emotional undertone amongst the high paced and dangerous mission that he takes you on. Full of tense twists wrought with danger and trepidation.’
Mission accomplished then!
