Editorial Reviews


Solidly convincing and wholly engrossing...
Treachery, murder, love, and ambition mark Snowden's page-turning latest, a tale of one man's journey of revenge and redemption. When Rory O'Flynn unexpectedly inherited a ten-acres property in Ireland, he had no idea he was going to be instrumental in unearthing his ancestors' long-buried past: when Jonathan Flynn lost his whole family to tragic circumstances, it was just the beginning of a series of unfortunate incidents that followed the young Irish man. Trying to escape his dangerous enemies, Jonathan boards a ship to Boston, but fate has other plans for him. Snowden's cast is morally diverse, and the fast-moving narrative beautifully highlights the book's underlying message of retribution and deliverance. The intricate worldbuilding and winding storyline with almost nonstop shocking twists keep the pages turning. At its core, the novel is an exploration of one man's journey of survival in the face of depravity and deprivation and his ability to rise above his birth station.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Wes Snowden is an author primarily as a result of an unforeseen event.

A born storyteller, Wes would often find himself surrounded by groups of excited kids. Their high-pitched voices demanding to hear the latest chapter on the adventures of Pirate Joe, or The Lost Princess, The Magic Opal, or whatever was current.

One day, a good a teacher friend listened in. At her gentle insistence, Wes was encouraged to commit those early verbal stories to paper for the benefit of future generations of youngsters.

However, as is often the case in life, that first bite of the apple produced an intense desire for more. After honing his craft writing several children and young adult books, Wes now focuses on writing unique, entertaining full-length stories for adults.

White Swan Wishes, Zachary’s Gold, One Last Move, and The Leprechaun Wars will be joined by Firebug, the latest novel in the fall of 2020.

After a successful career as an international business owner, Wes now spends his writing time between Toronto, Vancouver, and Scottsdale, Arizona.

Wes Snowden is a member of Writers &amp; Editors Network.
