#ThrowbackThursday – Author Jonas Saul – Book Review

#Throwback ThursdayRenee began the Throwback Thursday meme on her blog, “It’s Book Talk” to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books published over a year ago. Sounded like a good reason to join! My TT posts will not come from current ARCs or new releases. Means I’ll be going back over some of my oldies but goodies, my favorite authors, and some of my favorite stories from authors you might not have previously experienced. Hopefully, you’ll find either a story or author that interests you and you’ll check them out.

The Warning by Jonas SaulThis week I am highlighting Jonas Saul, another terrific, prolific author who has produced nineteen (The Chase published April 30, 2017) in the Sarah Roberts Thriller series, two of which I reviewed on Goodreads (The Warning, Sarah Roberts Series #2 and #3, The Crypt). He has actually written numerous thrillers along with a trilogy. The Crypt was published by Imagine Press. He consistently runs approximately 4.5 to 5 stars for his books sold on Amazon.

The Warning by Jonas SaulBook Blurb: “Sarah Roberts has spent the last four years helping people stay alive and escape near death experiences as messages from the dead come to her. She receives a daunting communication from the Other Side regarding her sister’s murderer and where she can find him. The message isn’t clear enough to confirm the man’s identity, causing Sarah to wonder about the veracity of the messages coming through. “When she receives The Warning, Sarah decides to disregard it. The tables turn and now Sarah’s being hunted instead of being the hunter. How many people have to die to catch one murderer? How far will Sarah go? This book explores the intense violence that she must endure and the absolute horror and reality that has become her life as an ‘Automatic Writer.’ “The Warning begins as a flame, sparks to a fire and explodes with a violent climax in the life of a girl who talks to the dead in order to help the living.”

The Warning (Sarah Roberts #2)

[Note: This particular book in the series has ratings all over the page–not your cup of tea or you love it. I had not read book #1 and didn’t realize the protagonist was projected to be a 22 year old. Although she ages through the series, I do not remember where she attained the ability to be a successful, aggressive fighter. Book #1 apparently explains that her sister, Vivian, was murdered. At age eighteen, she begins to black out and discovers the ability to “write” (messages from beyond), which she uses to protect the subjects of her current tale. The Crypt became more slightly more crude and profane, although both books were a wild action ride.]

I confess I wasn’t prepared for a female super-hero. Seems I’ve read several books that include a very strong feminine lead, but this one is beyond strong. And, (unfortunately for me) she is also prone to using a lot of 4-letter words–strong language, but the story line sucks you in quickly. The added interest here is the link between the sister she lost as a child who now communicates to her from the “other side” to protect the innocent.

She generally does not fail to follow the clues sent by her sister and in special ops precision seems capable of tackling all the bad guys with no problem. Not sure where she got the training–but this woman can come up with some amazing ways to get out of a situation (quick-minded female MacGyver).

I suspect she may have more testosterone than most women, but between that and her sister, she is capable of handling ex-military with 007 swiftness. Following the clues her sister has sent her in this series, she is after her sister’s murderer who is quickly determined to be a rapist/murderer. She expects to catch the perp using her 4-year practice of invoking her “messages” to help save the innocent. This is often violent but fast paced, with sufficient twists and turns to keep you reading.

I got this ebook as a free digital download and appreciated the opportunity to read and review. Recommended to those who enjoy a mystery or suspense thriller with psychic or paranormal overtones.

Happiness for a moment with you....

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
