Want to read this book?Five Gold Stars“P.S. Bartlett and Ronovan Hester’s historical adventure novel, Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling, The Razor’s Adventures Pirate Tales, is an exciting and fast-paced story set in the early eighteenth century. As I read of Captain Wallace’s trial and expulsion from the Royal Navy and his decision to turn to piracy, I was reminded of Sabatini’s classic pirate adventure tale, Captain Blood. The action scenes in this novel are vivid and filled with sounds and images, and the plot is compelling and complex. The authors’ characters are marvelously portrayed, especially that of Miles Jacobs, whose loyalty and concern for his friend prompts him to put everything at risk. Amber Wake is well-written and the plot is a delight. Anyone who’s ever enjoyed a good pirate movie (and who hasn’t?) or found themselves wrapped up in a classic adventure novel will have a grand time reading this authentic and suspenseful tale. It’s highly recommended.”

Book Review – Ronovan Hester – Amber Wakes by @PhantomGiggler

Ritu read my book! And then left a review and even posted it on her blog. Thought I would share.
Please click through and support her original post!!!

But I Smile Anyway...

Ron Book

In the spirit of the evening, I must also write a post about another great book I just finished the other day. Ron, you know, Lovely Ron, of Ronovan Write’s fame?

Well, he wasn’t content with inspiring us weekly, first with his Weekly Haiku Challenge, and then more recently with his Friday Fiction With Ronovan Writes fiction challenge. Oh no!

That Ron had been busy writing a book himself! Amber Wakes, written with P.S. Bartlett, is a swashbuckling pirate tale, and if I am honest, not the kind of fiction I would usually read.

Here is the review I left on Amazon…

Pirates? Not my usual cup of tea, but reading the reviews, I thought I’d give it a chance.
What did I think?
It took me a little while to get into the swing of the story, but once I was in, I was engrossed! I forgot this…

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling by PS Bartlett and Ronovan Hester

“Now, I want to warn you… this is not your typical pirate tale! It’s BETTER!
When the raging sea battles ensued I found I could not put the book down. I had to know what was going to happen next! I discovered many surprises along the way which made the book totally unpredictable, a real plus. Always present was the battle that raged between good and evil leading you into an adventure on the high seas filled with risks and peril, and the struggles of men.5 Star Review

“A Story to Fall in Love With
Hats off to the team of Ronovan Hester and P.S.Bartlett for breathing life into this swashbuckling tale, that put this reader in mind of Errol Flynn! I enjoyed meeting the characters, kept turning the pages to see what was happening next and am looking forward to more great adventure tales from these two authors.” 5 Star Review

#BookReview of Levant Mirage by @OliverFChase

 

Levant Mirage by Oliver F. Chase

You all know I don’t often cross my two sites over with each other. LitWorldInterviews is its own beast. I could count on one hand the times I recall having shared a book review here on RW, as it’s known behind the scenes. Today I wanted to share this one that I wrote for Levant Mirage by Oliver F. Chase. Why? Read on and you’ll see.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review and I’m glad I did. After having read it, I almost want to send him a check.

Levant Mirage takes snapshots from the headlines of the past few years to build a character and combines it with frighteningly realistic levant miragepossibilities to give a story you pray never happens.

35 year old U.S. Army Major Adam Michaels is no James Bond, nor did he ever set out to be. What is he? He’s a man who rejects the easy path that being the heir to a shipping empire gives him in order to join the military, serve his country, and be a father. Right, no money other than what he makes as a Major in the Army. You don’t see jet flying, limousine riding, womanizing and all of that. I would trade in the 10 year old Corolla for something a little better though. Tap into the trust fund already.

Finding himself used as a scapegoat for a foreign relations nightmare, Michaels works out his days in the Pentagon pushing papers, and paying alimony, child support and the mortgage on his rising political star ex-wife’s house. You see the everyday life to some extent leading up to the changes in life the military can throw at you. You don’t control you in the Army. And there are times when that twists the guts out of Michaels.

Michaels is of a dubious parentage, with his father not being who he thought he was, but upon finding out explains a great deal. This in part leads to his choice of path in life. He wants to be his own man. He doesn’t want to be identified with a past that isn’t really what he thought it was.

But part of that past comes back in one night and changes a quiet world into a search to find the defense against a missile guidance system he created that is now in the hands of terrorists. Which terrorists? Who is the enemy? You won’t believe it. Or you will believe it but be surprised.

The believability of Levant Mirage is what makes it so freakin’ scary at times. Perhaps the guidance system isn’t real, or I hope it’s not. But I’m sure there is something like it out there. The enemy Michaels must fight against is out of this world. If he fails, billions die. If he succeeds?

Chase writes with detail and a knowledge base that gives the story realism. You are able to submerse yourself into Levant Mirage and you don’t get pulled out by oddities and unbelievable scenes. Some scenes are high energy and amped up, but still possible.

Being honest, the amount of detail is incredible at times and I could have done with a little less of the technological speak, but it doesn’t take away from the story. In truth, it adds the believability—you don’t have these leaps from action to intellect in the span of a few seconds. Okay, maybe you do but for a whole different reason, but I’m not giving those parts away. Ah, that does remind me of one scene that did cause me pause and have to reread in order to get it clear. In part, that was due to the surprise of those involved.

I enjoyed the handling of the terrorists. As you read you’ll develop ideas but never get to comfortable, you never know what is going to happen next, who is going to happen, or what the truth is until it’s almost too late. But there are clues along the way.

RECOMMENDATION

I would recommend Levant Mirage to those who like believable action thrillers. Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt and other NUMA series books come to mind, but not that fantastical or off the charts. Where Cussler takes you over the edge of believability at times, Chase keeps you here on earth and scares the life out of you with reality you can find in your neighbors living room.
