Today’s team review is from Shelley, she blogs at http://shelleywilsonauthor.com/
Shelley has been reading October Rain by Dylan J Morgan
5 out of 5 stars.
October Rain is the second book I’ve read by Dylan Morgan, and I found it to be as captivating as the first. I shall be rushing out to purchase his entire catalogue shortly.
Steele is an assassin for the Martian Interstellar Correction Agency where he is employed to hunt down the names on a hit list. His ‘work’ is set to a deadline, and once the last name is crossed off that list, Steele and his family will be able to leave and start a new life.
I need to take a moment to appreciate the impressive cover of October Rain. It’s one of my favourite covers of the year so far.
I liked Steele, he was a vivid character who you could bond with immediately. Dylan has a knack for creating beautiful relationships between a father and daughter in his books, and October Rain is no exception. Shauna has a wonderful relationship with her dad, and he is clearly a loving family man to his little girl and wife, Keri. He keeps his job description to himself and works tirelessly to provide a better life for his family.
The novella is well paced, full of action and incredibly descriptive – something that author, Dylan Morgan does exceptionally well. My only criticism is that it’s not a 400-page novel – I want more! I hope this novella is the start of something, and the author writes a sequel. There are enough threads to pick up the story and run with it.
I read October Rain in one sitting. It’s explosive and gripping storyline carries you along at breakneck speed, and Dylan’s description of Mars and the remnants of humankind are fabulous.
I would highly recommend this novella.
