The Good: The book. It’s just flat good. I was surprised – shocked maybe. Melinda is a first time author, published by the small Rebelight Publishing. I should have known better. Any publisher with the motto – crack the spine: blow your mind has to put out good stuff. Enslavement stuck in my head – if I took a break from reading my mind stayed in the book. What I needed was a port-a-potty and an IV so I wouldn’t have to move. A great read.
The Bad: Probably my favorite series right now is the Ian Rutledge series by Charles Todd. As soon as I’m done with one, I can’t wait to pick up the next. There are like a zillion in the series, and I’m good with that. Here is the rub; Enslavement is the first book of the One Bright Future series. But. . . there is no book two yet. Melinda, get out of bed, let some violent video game raise your kids, quit any other job, give your husband the remote and write. Thanks.
The Ugly: Here is the ugly truth. With a small publisher limiting marketing, and everyone and their dog flooding the market with self-published books, Enslavement could get lost in the avalanche of new books. That would be a shame. Give it a read and recommend it if you liked it as I did. I’ve already ordered the potty and IV for book 2. Click on the cover photo if you want to go to Amazon to order.
