Smoke on the Mountain: A Story of Survival based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I was so captivated by this story that I felt as though I was right there with the characters experiencing the moments of this intriguing tale of survival with them. This is an unforgettable story you will not want to miss. I highly recommend this book and can hardly wait for the release of J. Michael Stewart's next novel!
This is not the normal book genre I'm usually drawn to, but I recently read the "Winning Ticket", by the same author, and really enjoyed it. Also, I've been hearing some "buzz" about his next book "13 Steps", which definately sounds like the psychological thriller type of story I'm usually drawn to. So, I thought I'd give this one a read, mostly out of curiousity; and I'm glad I did! Initially, it might seem this is just a story about a guy on a fly fishing trip, but don't be fooled by the first few chapters. The author is just laying the groundwork for a really great, hard to put down, story. By chapter 8, I felt truely attached to the characters and couldn't wait to see what was coming next. I was really impressed with the level of writing, the descriptive elements (especially in an "attack" scene) were excellent. The connection with the characters continued to strengthen throughtout the story and culminated in a final few chapters that had me in tears, rooting for them to survive an unimaginable ordeal. I don't want to spoil the story by saying to much, but the book is definately worth the read if you are interested in experiencing a quite talented new author.
