In the middle, though, the novel shifts to something else - romance? Erotica? I’m not sure how to describe it. The intrigue becomes a side-light, forgotten in a haze of drinking and sex. It almost seems like two separate ideas for a novel, squashed together to make one. The return to the intrigue theme nearer to the end seemed somewhat cliché or contrived to me, featuring a betrayal you knew had to come.
The story is told mostly in first-person present tense. This is a very hard technique to maintain throughout, and unfortunately, without extremely careful word-by-word editing, it often falls apart. This is the case here, where the tense sometimes shifts in the middle of a sentence or paragraph. Other typos suggest the need for better editing throughout.
Overall, this is a promising novel with themes that are unique enough to make it worth reading: noir for the modern day. The author definitely has a grasp on the style, and it will appeal to intrigue, crime, and noir readers alike. It could be quite good with some tightening up.
Logan, Ryan, and Jonathan are three brothers. And Logan, despite being a very flawed character, clearly really cares about the other two. Jonathan, especially. But he can’t be around them, for their own safety. Julian has forced it to be that way. Logan, you see, has been a computer hacker, and Julian has had him use these skills in the past to… well, I won’t give that spoiler away.
For the readers who want to know, there was extremely strong language, pretty much on every page, and multiple, graphic sexual situations. In my opinion, the author seemed to try to rely more on the shock value of strong language, rather than on her wordcrafting skills to convey strong emotion despite already having some serious skill with writing a tense, watertight plot. As Jack Bickman said, in his book, The 38 Most Common Fiction Writing Mistakes, new writers often use more profanity in their books than they need to. While it isn’t unrealistic for a certain personality type to cuss a lot in real life, writers might consider toning the cussing down in their writing. Because as Mr. Bickman said, “It looks dirtier on paper than it sounds.”
There were a number of typographical errors that threw the writing off in places. A few examples: “already he had made u his mind that he didn’t like him.” “like just their fathers” “was much inhumane than it seemed.”
Other than these and a few other typos, the story is fast paced, with non-stop action and a tense plot with a gut-wrenching twist toward the end that is not expected, and that tears your heart out.
The story ends with a bit of cliffhanger leading into the next book, and which will leave fans of the first book wanting to know what Logan will be up to in the sequel.
I’m also a simple girl who’s a sucker for a can’t-put-it-down read-which for me, is hard to come by. As this is the first one I’ve found in a very, very long time, and I was to grateful to have it in my hands!
I have nothing to say about editing, or noir or any other business because that’s the kind of critique I feel qualified to give. I thought it was great the way it was, and was really looking forward to Black Swan. And I got it. I’ll post a review over there.
