Book Review: The Relentless American, by Sarina Rose
Rated **** four stars out of five by reviewer Iris Chacon.
A complimentary ARC was provided to this reviewer for an honest, unbiased review.
You’ll enjoy reading it. In fact, you may not want to put it down. The Vietnam era is recreated very well, with its angst, frustration, guilt, and tragedy. The characters are winsome, and you’ll care about the tough decisions each one must make. Expect all the emotions of wanting, loving, losing, and somehow starting again with no guarantees of happiness.
Be warned right up front — because I wasn’t, and I had quite a surprise: there’s a cliffhanger ending. Not one of those endings where the first story line is all wrapped up and a new story line, focusing on different characters, is beginning. No, no, this is one of those times when apparently the 85,000-word target was reached and boom. Stop this book and start the next one. This one seems to stop in media res, as it were.
This is the third book in the Relentless series, and you’ll be panting and shifting from foot to foot waiting for book four to arrive. In the meantime, you can always go back and read books 1 and 2 in this series by Sarina Rose.
I was disappointed in the number of typos, spelling, grammar, and syntax errors: too many for a book that supposedly has already been edited. It needs another draft for polish.
Recommended for mature readers only; adult language and subject matter.
The Relentless American and other books in The Relentless Series are available on AMAZON.
