About the Author

Born in Ithaca, New York, Aric Davis has lived most his life in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

He and his wife and daughter live in the chilly Midwest, where they can enjoy roller coasters, hockey, and cold weather.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Davis' The Fort is a novel about Tim, Luke and Scott. Three young boys who witness a strange man with a gun to a missing girl's back and are not believed. They set out to find the killer and to prove themselves truthful.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a coming of age novel with three believable young lads as the key characters. The boys are trapped between enjoying life as kids and playing war games in their fort in the forest and growing up and facing the realities of the adult world. They try to tell adults in authority about the things they witnessed, and tried to prevent, but are not believed. They set out to uncover the truth about the murderer in their midst and are sent on a dark journey.
The book is well written and the characters are rounded and developed. The kids have individual personalities which work well in the story's progression. The adults are believable and don't impinge too much into the kids' journey. The writing is good and the story unfolds at a good pace. No great mysteries here but it's not meant to be a thriller, it is a story about three boys. I enjoyed it and I think most people will.

Couldn't put it down had to read it in one sitting. The main characters were true hero's and a lesson should be learnt about listening and respecting our children

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Aric Davis is a skilled writer who weaves an interesting and well-paced tale of three young men coming of age. The backdrop to their loss of innocence is a series of local murders that they become embroiled in when they see a kidnapped girl and are disbelieved by everyone.

I was drawn in very quickly with this book and enjoyed the characters. However, this could have been spun out over another couple of hundred pages easily, Davis is a good writer and he would have served this story much better by slowly revealing these characters. Instead, they leap fully formed onto the page. Whilst this is fair enough this is a story that should have been given a Stephen King type sprawling feel, slowly revealing inter-connections between the characters, delving into their back stories and allowing us to fully absorb the small town feel.

This is no criticism, it shows how well Davis has lured me into this tale that left me wanting more.

As it stands, a fast paced and tense read.

Recommended.

Having only recently finished my first Aric Davis novel, A Good and Useful Hurt , I was keen to read more of his work so was pleased to see he's written a handful of other books, all with pretty good reviews.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I liked all three of the young boys characters. The story was set at a good pace and I couldn't wait to find out how it ended. I just wished it had been longer - there was definitely room for developing the characters a bit more, and really getting inside the boys heads. All in all, a great read.

The last few pages set the scene nicely for A Good and Useful Hurt, if you haven't read it I'd highly recommend it.

Battle-scarred Vietnam veteran Hooper is looking to wreak vengeance on his younger sister Amy after she left her moribund mother while he was serving overseas. But Hooper is so damaged that he finds and kills any number of prostitutes who look like Amy until he comes across Molly who's a high school kid that's been inveigled into acting like a prostitute so that her male friends can shake down the punters. Hooper kidnaps Molly/Amy to punish her. Detective Van Engel is on the case & thinks that 3 12 yo boys might be able to help him after they'd seen Hooper with Molly in the wood where their tree fort was. However Hooper had been canny & killed & set fire to another similar sized prostitute who Van Engel & his team assume is Molly. The boys defy their horrified parents & try & solve the case but Hooper is not going to be outsmarted by a bunch of kids. The book is well written & fast-paced though most of the characters are somewhat one dimensional; this would be alright if this was a children's book but it's not.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Its about three young boys, their summer holiday and their tree house aka The Fort. The story is set in the 1980's in America and something the three boys witness that changes the course of their summer break. The plot and characters are very well drawn, I was enthralled from the start. One of those books you just cannot put down. I thoroughly enjoyed it all. The ending is great, very fitting for the plot. A lot of times I feel endings are rushed or just thrown together, but this lived up to the high standard of the book. I am really looking forward to reading more books by this author. A great discovery that I have the Kindle Daily Deals to thank for.

Really enjoyed this book. I like Aric's style, he pulls you in and keeps to pinned to his words and story. The Fort tells of how the dark side of humanity intrudes on the summer plans of three ordinary boys. Great characters, direct, honest writing.

So, I finished The Fort and immediately downloaded Nickel Plated and Tunnel Vision. Fifteen pages into Tunnel Vision and I'm already gripped and looking forward to another good read. Can't say better than that.
