But.....Like many Kindle Novels, it needs an Editor, badly.
Nevertheless, it is a good plot line that compelled me to keep reading so I could see what was going to happen next. If the story didn't have a lot of draw, I would not have done that. While the numerous grammatical errors were annoying, Like tripping over a rock in the trail you are walking, in time, especially if you read many Kindle Novels, you learn to skim over the errors, correct them in your head, and read what was meant to be.
If you enjoy werewolves and murder mysteries, you'll enjoy this story, despite its flaws.
Now...... These are comments that I hope Mr Parr will read, as they are for him.
#1) Get a friend to 'Beta' your work before you publish it to Kindle. Your work desperately needs an Editor. There are numerous errors in grammar, word use (their vs there, etc....), sentence structure, and punctuation.
#2) TMI, dude! Don't spend so much time and pages on the life story of an obvious 'red shirt', ie, a character that your readers know is going to die. Such as the poacher in the woods. I didn't feel I needed to know the guy's childhood to determine he was a jerk who deserved what he was going to get. Just his being an every weekend poacher was enough for me. He was the only early victim that really had it coming. The other early victims, except that TV reporter, were nice people who didn't have 'it' coming. I would have liked to know more about 'Bo', and it would have been great to see the attack in the Pub thru 'Bo' s' eyes. That clash of the titans, when gigantic 'Bo' battled the alpha male. That would have been worth several pages, But the jerk poacher, and the jerk Chan 5 Reporter.....not page worthy. Keep those 'red shirts' short.
#3) Be careful with details. Such as the silver bullets at the end. All good, except for when the Doc was making them......you had him pop them out of the molds and load them right into the gun. Guns don't throw pieces of metal all by themselves. They have to be pressed into a casing with gunpowder and a firing cap. Otherwise.....no bang. The gun would just dry fire on the hunk of metal, and the silver bullet would never leave the muzzle. Then there was the Electron Microscope at the end..... You have Dr Morgan viewing living and active cells thru it. Not possible. The environment inside an Electron Microscope (a vacuum) is not compatible with life. Anything placed in an EM is either dead, or soon will be. Now, if you had talked about the Doc's amazement that the virus was still able to be active when it should have been dead, etc, that would have worked.
#4) All the romantic feelings that different characters were feeling for each other during times when their lives, or the lives of their children, were in imminent danger, seemed unrealistic.
Real people don't wonder if they should ask someone out when the wolf is pounding on the door.
Mr Parr, please know that the only reason I took the time to write this Review, with it's feedback, is because I think you and your work are worth the time. You are talented, and have the potential to be a wonderful author.
Keep at it.......But get an Editor.
1. Typos,incorrect punctuation, grammar errors and spelling errors show up at an impossible rate. I'm talking hundreds! A dim-witted eight year old could have edited this book better. I don't think the author even bothered to read it.
2. The author couldn't even keep his own characters straight. Here is a paraphrased quote from the book. "Now, let me introduce you all to Special Agent in Charge, Jim Poole." "Thank you Chief Stone. As you all have just been informed, my name is Special Agent Shepherd Harris."
3. It's obvious the author did a ton of research, which is great. The problem is that every single bit of it is in the book. Enough said.
4. The story itself wasn't too bad, if you could dig it out from all the extraneous material. The writing however, was at about a high school freshman level. No need to worry about big words in this book. Of course there were a few big words, cut and pasted from whatever research document the author was using and therefore something you will probably skip anyways.
I know this book has some good reviews. I'm dumbstruck! If you want to risk it, go ahead. As far as I'm concerned, I don't only want a refund, I want compensated for emotional trauma. Yes, I'm being melodramatic but it's not far from the truth.
