Author LM Preston's novel, BANDITS, follows Daniel, his 10-year-old brother, Nickel, and their cousin Faulk as they flee from the men that killed Daniel's father before they become the next victims. With their dad's journal and the secrets inside it, the boys set off not only to save themselves but their world as well. Along the way they meet a cast of unique creatures that you wouldn't want to encounter on a moonless night. Vivid descriptions place the reader with the characters as they face one danger after another. Both Daniel and Faulk take a fancy to Jade, adding romance, along with more conflict to the novel.
BANDITS is not only an adventure and fantasy story, it's a story about family and how those we love are not always who we think they are. Because of the rough language and the romance scenes I would not recommend this book for teens under 16. Several grammatical errors, such as "Jade, Nickel, and me (I) will lead them..." and "The fetid order (odor) of the..." also, "...to think the lost (loss)..." drew me out of the story. That said, if you like a fast-paced adventure, with a well-constructed magical world, then you should enjoy BANDITS. L M Preston has created a world that's dangerous and full of interesting characters. You might want to lock your doors and turn on all the lights before you read BANDITS.
What a pleasant surprise. First things first: this novel is not a pirate novel as one would suspect (well, I would say space pirates would be a pretty accurate term). I was apprehensive, because the last free book we got was absolutely horrendous. No worries, this book has a very solid plot, endearing characters (even ones you only know through memories of other characters!), and a world with mysteries like no other.
The writing was the only drawback. However, I felt that the writing was not bad as much as I would advise this author to seek an editor who can give some tips and pointers. The author comes across as young and slightly inexperienced, but with obvious potential and talent. Practice, and keep writing. I hope to see some of your books on the top seller lists in the near future!
Daniel's father Rayne is always leaving messes for him to clean up, but this time, Rayne got himself killed. Daniel and his brother Nickel now on the run from the kings officials and whomever killed their father for an unknown treasure. The only thing they have to guide them is the journals their father left for them. They set out to find this treasure and are accompanied by their cousin Faulk and Daniel's best friends sister Jade. They soon find that this treasure not only got Rayne killed, but may be the end of them and their planet Merwin. There are many obstacles for them to overcome and their time is running out.
The book is filled with adventure, twists, and turns. The characters and storyline are amazing and the descriptive details are out of this world. This authors style is beyond creative. I am a proud owner of an e-copy and print of this book.
