Review

***** Gripping
An absolutely fantastic read. Much to my husband's dismay I really didn't want to put this book down. From the first page to the last page was an excellent read and would love to read more books like these. A definite must for your library!! -Amazon reviewer, UK

**** Scary
The story was well constructed, bringing in three separate strands and drawing them together, and I liked the way it was written. I found it hard to put down, partly because it was pretty scary, also very gory but the story line was intriguing. Although there are paranormal aspects to it, it is largely a thriller with a story line to keep you hooked throughout. I give very few 5* ratings and thoroughly enjoyed this book - happy to recommend it - to those with strong constitutions. -Amazon reviewer, UK

***** So intense, keep holding your breath
As soon as I dived into Red Mountain, I was swimming into a myriad of emotions. Fear, self doubt, anticipation and a feeling that failure was not an option. The story is so well written that it keeps you captivated from the first word and you need to know what happens next. Admittedly, it is not the easiest read, because the story is so intense, and so many past events are linked to the present that you have to keep alert.

If you do not believe in the spirit world, malevolent beings and shamans, then the plot may seem far fetched and this is may not be the book for you. If, on the other hand, you think everything is possible, then dip into Red Mountain. It will leave you breathless and on edge, even after you have turned the last page. -Amazon reviewer, UK

More About the Author

Dennis Yates (born 1963) is an American writer of novels and short stories. He is a native of Portland Oregon, and a fan of long road trips, animals, engaging literature and independent films. He often dreams of escaping the Oregon rain clouds to the scorching sun and and red canyons of the American Southwest.

Dennis enjoys writing psychological thrillers and dark comedy. On the lighter side, his quintessential, quirky road-trip novel The Teriyaki Samurai was a quarter-finalist in the 2013 Amazon Breakout Novel Award contest. Dennis draws deeply from his love of nature and the American landscape, which he firmly believes must play an important character in all of his writing.

He is a huge fan of such authors as Daniel Woodrell, Cormac McCarthy, Annie Proulx, William Gay, Frank Bill, John Rector, Blake Crouch and many others.

An impressive thriller that should keep you riveted throughout. The premise is a good one: after his family is kidnapped in a home invasion attack, would a man do anything - including the murder of innocent people - to get them back? The author does a nice job of jumping back in time more than 100 years to lay the foundation for what is happening in the present. And the time shifts do not distract from the story. They add to it. One of the benefits of Kindle books is finding new authors who deliver. That's definitely the case with this novel.

Mr. Yates did a great job on this novel, I started reading and just couldn't put it down. I'm familiar with several of the locales used in the story and wanted to draw it out but the story telling here really gets you hooked in craving to find out the next turn of events which is the essence of good suspense. The last time I was propelled along so swiftly by a story like this was reading some James Patterson in his prime. A great read that takes you through some well developed terrain both literally and figuratively. I look forward to what is next from this author.

I bought this book a while back and added it to my virtual pile of books to read. I'm a big fan of the author so when I finally began to read, I kicked myself for not reading it sooner. I'm usually pretty good at guessing plots but Mr. Yates kept me guessing from the beginning. Just when I thought I had a handle on what's happening, guess what, he threw something else at me to show me that I knew nothing at all.
To say I enjoyed Red Mountain is an understatement. It kept me interested and guessing until the end. Do yourself a huge favor and read this book.

I just finished this book today and I loved it. It grabbed my attention from the first page and didn't let go until I finished. How far would you go to save your family? Robert's wife and son are kidnapped and he is told he must kill people they put in his path or be killed. If he successfully kills his opponent, his family lives another day. He has to kill several different opponents before he gets his family back. He doesn't know any of the people and he's trying to figure out what the connection could possibly be in all this. The story jumps back and forth between the present and the past, and the reader has no clue what one thing has to do with another, but you know there is a connection and you can't wait to find out what it is. Never a dull moment, and as it all comes together it's perfect!

I started this book with the intent of it lasting me a couple of days. How wrong I was. I bought this on a Saturday morning and was finished by Sunday morning. I coul not put this story down. The author gets right into the story, which I like. It leaves no room to become bored or discouraged from the lack of build-up. I particularly enjoyed that with the action there was a bit of mystery and super-natural aspect. In short, I ate this one up too fast and am eager for more. Will definately be reading more from the author!

This was the first book I downloaded. It is not the kind of story I would normaly read. It seemed to me to be two seperate stories running at the same time in the beginning. There seemed to be no link to either until much further on in the book. As the story progressed, I found that I was drawn into the plot and needed to continue to the end to 'find out what happened'. However, there were areas that I speed read or skipped over to move on.

This was a decent story with a lot of fantasy which really isn't my bag of books. This could have been a great story if the author had kept it real.
