Agent with a History (The Agents for Good) (Volume 1) Paperback – December 24, 2013
About the Author
I'm a dreamer, a poet, a lover, a husband, a father, and a man of God. I'm inspired by what I've seen and what I've read, but what I create with my words is where I dream. I pray for inspiration, and I enjoy what I have written just as I hope that others will as well. I'm a quiet man on the outside, but writing has become the playground of my soul to express itself in the grandeur of the created worlds and tales that I have been fortunate enough to dream of. The best way to find out more about me is to read my books. I write from the heart and I express both my shortcomings and my triumphs. I like to think of my writing as 'Reality Fiction'. I tell it like I see it. Life is short and the troubles many, but with faith in Jesus Christ all things have become possible to me. I may write 'make believe', but I strive to live out what I write. I enjoy my work and I hope you do too. Have a blessed time reading my imaginative thoughts.

I have been reviewing books for quite some time, and have several hundred professional reviews completed. As a result, I have honed myself to focus on the craft of the writer more so than the entertainment of the content. Sure, there are some books that capture my attention and compel me to read to the end. This book, however, is not one of them. As I said, I appreciate Stanton's hard work - writing is a challenge, and being a novelist is impressive.
However, looking at this introduction to his action/adventure series, I find that Stanton struggles with the fluidity of his prose and grammatical structures. He has potential, of which I am sure reveals itself deeper into the text and in his other titles, but this book could use an editorial review. Stanton consistently writes sentences that cause me to re-read the material out of getting caught up in the structure more than the story. The grammatical makeup of his text leaves me struggling to go from start to finish in the text, with several instances of internal thought of the character at hand that did not seem like a thought, but rather a narrator's comment, or run-on sentences and the like.
If you're looking for a clean thrill, then this job is most likely an excellent choice. If the sex scenes and foul language that typically finds itself in this genre does not bother you, then I would defer to titles by James Patterson, Richard Castle, and the like. Stanton does an excellent job at getting his work out in the wild - it just needs a bit more editorial work to boost the quality of the content.
Disclosure: I was contracted to write an honest review in exchange for a reviewer copy of the product. The opinions stated in this review are solely my own.
I enjoyed this book because of its stand against abusing women. I did have a problem in that while God was mentioned favorably several times, the ending was not, in my opinion, a Christian solution.
If you want adventures that rival those of Indiana Jones with a lot of clean romance thrown in, this is the book for you.
The author provided me with a free copy of his book in exchange for a fair and honest review. We have both kept our ends of the bargain.
