My Review:

A book with amazing prose and well defined characters.

It’s a riveting tale with suspense in the line of fire and the unknown. It has tactical maneuvers even the layman can understand. There are unexpected casualties that leave you astounded. In takes you on a journey to a land where an alternate reality is unthinkable. This is only the first 9 pages of the book.

Chapter 3: With each death a person awakens in a half-familiar land that gives them the eerie feeling of someone or something watching them. The narrative thickens; a third death leaves you wondering what they all have in common. This bitter cold alternative reality is in shambles with numerous corpses stripped to the bone. The strange land has air so rank that it leaves you coughing.

Another new ‘death’ joins the crowd, a beautiful lifeless woman saved by the two heroic men. It’s like time has stood still in the year of 1962 or 1963. Are vile creatures roaming this hellhole? Yes, and they are half dog, half human species. Then the ancient soldiers arrived. What next?

With each new chapter you are left with more beckoning questions. Are they really dead or alive? Could it be that they are in Purgatory or are they in an alternative reality? The main characters know they have to venture on to the unknown. Will they get out alive or is there no escape?

This amazing read will take you on a journey of the unexpected. There is page after page of surreal yet heartfelt adventure and constant surprise. A book that I am sure will soon be on the bestsellers list!
