I have been hearing good things about the Author Brent Jones and his serial thriller book Afton Morrison series . So when I got the opportunity to buy this book, I took it on and read through it in a single sitting.
I like vengeance being wrecked on a man when he shatters the life of a woman. This is what I get from this book, the need for revenge burning bright in me as in Afton from the get-go. The book starts with a bang, with the main character Afton surveilling Kenneth as she is sure he is going to attack again. Afton then discovers a lot many things including a dead body, writing on the wall framing her, a witness, and stolen evidence.
My first book by author Brent Jones, saw me stuck to my iPad, turning the pages fervently hoping to come to the end. At five feet two inches, Afton packs a punch. I could identify with her need for revenge, to prevent more women from being hurt. She had Animus, her soul sister, who was the vengeant part of her, egging her on. Her psyche was complex, and I loved that Brent painted her grey. Those are the shades that stuck close to me. The dichotomy in her character clung to me as mine does, on most times. I loved the fact Afton hates being called as a victim, I hate that too. We are survivors. Women who live by our own rules now.
And then came my niggles, the book ended in a cliffhanger. I generally don’t mind those if I am given a complete story. Here I was given only the appetizer without much of a backstory. I do understand that it is a serial novel, but yet it left me unsatisfied. A complete value for money, it is not. But a great start to the series, it sure is. But since the book has been free for some time, it is a great read.
I bought the digital copy of this book, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart.
