Editorial Review

"The strength of the manuscript include the unpredictable plot, a cast of memorable characters, and the action sequences, both Mac and his team's missions and those involving the creature."

"The main characters carry the story nicely, and most of the minor characters contribute and give depth to the world of the novel."

"In the Becky narrative, you weave together the present action with her dream state and reminiscences very nicely and naturally. Many authors resort to formatting such as italicization (least desirable) or section breaks (sometimes useful), but you've managed to convey the shifts through the language and imagery alone. Well done."

"I sat down last Sunday morning to relax and read a book. What I got was a hair raising five hour ride. I could not put the book down. It was easy to read and kept me wanting more. I would read a J.E. Gallagher book anytime and anywhere. Well Done!"

"It is an incredible read, full of action, mystery, and very unpredictable. It is a must read for anyone. Very easy to read and was extremely enjoyable. It has everything a novel should contain. The author takes time to develop his characters in such a way that you fall in love with all of them. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone especially those with a military background."
