Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brookover excels at writing tense scenes that pull the reader through - and his rich, fast-moving plots only help this." -- Writer's Digest, October 1, 2006

"Brookover's stories race along with believable characters, while the writing is tense, like reading STEPHEN KING or DEAN KOONTZ." -- Midwest Book Review, September 1, 2005

About the Author

Take some ancient conjurings, a curse, some ESP, prehistoric creatures, and throw in some magic, and you have this story. And of course the FBI for good measure. This was an entertaining, make believe book and will stir up the imagination of its readers.

I really wanted to like this book. I wanted to like this author. I wanted a lot of things in my life like being independently wealthy, a masterful eye for fine arts, a ten inch sexual organ... I have found my way through many disappointments but I have never felt so disappointed in myself for making it to the 50% mark.

What I thought would get better, didn't. One main character, Dex Lowe is an actual fleshed out character that doesn't necessarily "do it all". Then Teddi McCoy, pithy, flippant, super-upset with her ex-fiance-husband thing; FBI agent with the emotional maturity of a spurned fouteen year old. She at least didn't know how to do it all. Or know it all.

Then it comes to Psychic Jackosn "MacBuffn'stuff-Duddly-Do-Everything" LeFèvre. The most one dimensional character I've ever read. Not only does the FBI have a psychic on retainer, he also has a TARDIS shack on stilts int he middle of the Louisianan bayou... You know the like. Visible day light through poorly maintained slats in the walls, clearly 8'x8', yet inside everything is pristine sanitized surfaces, with giant flat-screen TVs, fireplaces, etc. Think of a James Bond Villain hideout, then go from there.

The character is first described as ruggedly handsome, shoulder length blond hair and wearing a bright white Safari Outfit. Think of /literally/ the 'Great White Hunter'. Not only does he have the ear of a higher up in the FBI, he also has tactical combat training and is psychic; an empath; knows the ins-and-outs of South American Drug Lord tactics; knows Portuguese; can see through the eyes of a Jaguar... and damned if by the time he stared self-same Jaguar into a healthy placated sleep I gave up in the book.

first book and I was sucked in. There were many twist and turns. Loved the relationship between Dex and Teddi. Throw Jackson in a wow! I would recommend all of the books in this series .You will not be bored. Excited, will ask question that have not been answered but hope in future books will be.

I'm a huge Steven King and Dean Koontz fan. I love reading horror and paranormal type books. The description for this book intrigued me so I picked it up.

I found it to be a great read. Unique, rather well-written, and with plenty of horror and spooky moments, it captured my attention and kept it until the very end.

There were a few parts that were either a bit too slow, or that seemed to be a bit underdeveloped compared to the rest of the book. These parts didn't really take away from the rest of the story, though.

I enjoyed this book, and while I wouldn't say this author is on the same level as Stephen King (although let's be honest, who really is?), I do think that most King fans would find this to be a pleasurable read.

I have a soft spot for creature features, and 'dinosaurs' are one of my absolute favorite creatures. This book provides plenty of that.

It's not a great book, and I don't ever see it becoming a best seller of any sort, but it was engaging enough for me to finish it and then go ahead order the kindle version of the two sequels that follow.

What I liked about the book:

The characters were engaging, the plot was interesting (enough), and of course, there were dinosaurs.... and something else.

What I didn't like:

Well, saying I didn't like it is rather strong, but there were several things that took me out of the story. There are numerous typos and grammatical errors, and an over-abundant use of exclamation points. These 'literally' took me out of the story on many occasions, which I found rather disconcerting and annoying, but I was able to get right back into it quickly.

As for the characters... Jackson struck me as very much a Marty Sue character. At one point he shows that he knows martial arts, but then never again uses it in fights where he would instinctively done so; then there was the cat-whisperer moment.... He is also very similar to another character from a pair of well-known authors, though not as well done. Hopefully, that's a bad habit that he won't find hard to break. Teddi, while likeable, struck me as rather... wishy-washy a lot of the time. I was getting whiplash from her going from tough, take-charge FBI agent to helpless damsel in distress mode rather quickly and frequently. Dex was the most interesting character, though for a small town cop, he sure expands his jurisdiction rather widely. As for the big-bad of the book, he seemed rather one-dimensional and totally Dan-Browned.

Absolutely awesome. I live in South Florida and could not put it down. I have bought two more books and they both live up to my expectations. Anyone who loves a really good thriller definitely needs to read this one.
