Today I am privileged to have another author here. Well, her book anyway. In this post will be a review, some nice graphics, and a giveaway! First, I’d like to share what this book is about.
Recommended ages: 13 & up for gang violence
The characters were usually easy to relate to. I liked Bryan the best, even though he was a minor character. Virginia and Shawn were good, too, but Bryan just struck a cord with me. Maybe because we’re both the oldest. There were a few times when the characters seemed a little forced or two-dimensional, but that didn’t happen often. The good characters all had flaws and the bad characters had some good aspects, especially the villain.
Tialla did a very good job with the dialogue. Each character had a unique voice and always said things realistically.
Let’s just say, I’m glad I don’t live in a city like the one Shawn lived in. And I wouldn’t want to be Virginia or Shawn. But, the plot and storyline was very well done and intriguing. Even to someone who usually reads historical fiction. 🙂
There were a few typos that diminished the reading, but nothing awful. Other than that, the writing was very good.
There were a few times when the story dragged a little and other times I didn’t want to put the book down, but had to.
If you like stories about redemption, mystery, and don’t mind some violence, this book is for you. The violence isn’t awful and certainly isn’t graphic, but it is still there for the imagination to pick up on if you allow it to.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
