This is a short story, itself a whole, and very enjoyable. For me, Jack is a different kind of vigilante. I want to know more about him, because the author feeds new insights that make me feel indulged. <---That's talent, baby... A juicy mystery, not just about what Jack's gonna do, but let me want to learn more about him.
Don't tell me this is a story mainly for guys, cuz this gal knows about the meaty hands and hopes to learn about some thighs...
I'm on my way back to book 1 for more investigative fun.
Well, Ross has gone ahead and published his e-book, and he's currently working on adding more to the saga. His writing and character development bring you in to that small part of your brain that you may or may not visit frequently. That part that recognizes that there are injustices in this world and you begin thinking of ways to rectify the situation yourself. We all know that vigilantism is illegal, and fortunately through this book, we can live vicariously through his character.
Grab this book, follow along, and hate Ross for not getting The Fireman finished fast enough.
Okay, I'm kidding about the hating on Ross bit, but grab this book!
That's not to say this is a bad story whatsoever. I liked The Fireman. Ross Elder takes a concept most can relate to--seeing the evil in society and wanting to do something about it--and takes it all the way. It is a vigilante story reminiscent of the genre films of the 1970s and 1980s, thoroughly a man's adventure.
Setting aside Kindle formatting issues--which are not Mr. Elder's fault--there are some grammatical errors. Also, I felt that the prose could have been expanded upon a little bit. However, I take into consideration first person narrative is VERY hard--I can't write it--and that this is his first fiction work.
I see a lot of potential in Elder's writing abilities and specifically in the Fireman series. This is a solid first entry and I will be looking forward to reading subsequent entries.
First, it is critical to note that this is a short story which means, it is word count should range from 1k to 20k words. This short story is perfectly described as such considering its word count is approximately 7k words.
About the story: Without giving away too much, I explain the story by asking a series of questions: Imagine being a daddy and some punk kid rapes your little girl. Imagine being a daddy and some dirtball gives your little girl drugs which you only find out about due to an un-expecting visit to the emergency room caused by her overdose. Imagine being a daddy and seeing a drive-by shooting in front of the house your baby princess was celebrating the birthday of her best friend.
