Edge of the seat thriller,
This review is from: Ascension Day #1 (Kindle Edition)
This was an edge of the seat thriller-ride all the way as a young lawyer fights to save a death-row prisoner who doesn't wish to be saved. The lawyer quickly finds himself up against all odds as there are a few people keen to see Larry Durrant's execution go ahead on time!
There are a couple of strokes of genius in this book: one, the prisoner's state of mind which means he can't totally recall whether he committed the murder or not. Second, the unraveling and piecing back together of his mind which has put him where he is in the first place. I shall say no more at this stage, otherwise I'll quickly get into the area of 'spoilers'.
Must say I didn't have an issue with the book split into two parts. It was clearly marked on the introduction, but maybe it's because I'd read another of the author's books, The Second Amendment, which was also split up in the same way with part one free. I don't recall the same fuss being made by readers over that book, and to be frank the length of both books lend themselves to that. A lot happens in both and 500 plus pages is too much in one haul!
