This review is far and away the most satisfying I’ve ever had. When I set out to write a series or saga following characters through their lives, I wanted to involve the reader and give them a reason to continue through the series as they grew ever more familiar with the protagonists. I wanted them to befriend Daniel, Lauren and Bonny and share the drama of their lives. The big challenge was to do this with an original voice. I tried to step outside the expected and challenge the reader to think about the novels subjects and see things afresh. There are new and challenging perspectives on national identity, history, sexual roles, society and politics.
I was ambitious and I knew this unconventional subject mater and approach would not please all readers but I hoped it would intrigue and thrill others.
This review was the first to confirm I’d achieved success. I’m delighted. Bless you AngieB, for even if I get other such reviews, I’ll always cherish this one. The first to see the work as I intended it to be seen. That is priceless.
LOVE this book which was so new and interesting to me having never read anything like it … it captured my attention immediately and I was desperate to learn more and more about the well-written characters of Daniel, Lauren & Bonny and how their story unfolds… I have since ripped through all the available books in the Daniel Series and anxiously await the next publication “Pyramid” (6th in the series). This series has intrigue, danger & excitement, feeling, love & sensuality … had my emotions all over the place!
