John Nicholl does it again. As usual, he delivers a gripping psychological thriller that you just can’t put down. His writing isn’t just a good book to read on a dark stormy night. It’s something you want to take the time and study. Using his background as a former police officer and child protection worker, Nicholl takes us on a tour inside the minds of the evil looming around us all.

In A Mind To Kill, Rebecca is set to take revenge on any man who dares to abuse innocent children like she once was. But soon, two of her victims are discovered and Rebecca must evade police capture as she continues her mission to set right to horrifying wrongs.

It’s hard to write stories involving child abuse. To know that it happens in real life is sickening enough, but to put it on paper? Forget about it. But John Nicholl isn’t afraid to tell the stories. It’s a good thing, too, because people need to be reminded it’s there. There are evil people in this world doing despicable things. But what happens to some of the survivors of such evil? This book will give one account.

A Mind to Kill will have you turning the pages. After one more chapter, you decide to put the book down for the night. But like the spider luring the fly to its web, John Nicholl lures you to keep on reading. We know straight off what the story is about and we know who the killer is. But still, there are some twists and turns to keep readers guessing.

As usual, the characters bounce right off the pages. The narration is told beautifully, mastering the showing rather than telling.

This is what a good psychological thriller is about. It’s no wonder why author John Nicholl is an international best seller. Be forewarned, however, that his work is not for the faint hearted. He digs deep into your heart and doesn’t let go.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Renegades (The Praegressus Project Book 2)

  • Title: Renegades (The Praegressus Project Book 2)
  • Author: Aaron Hodges
  • Print Length: 276

Renegades picks up where Rebirth left off. Having read another series by Aaron Hodges, I think that The Praegressus Project three-parter is my favorite. In Rebirth, we meet Chris, Liz and a few other characters who were stolen from their lives by Dr. Halt in order for experiments to be run on them. This experiment produces dangerous results, as well as wings for our companions.

Chris, Liz and the others have already freed themselves and are on the run from Dr. Halt. Their journey is not an easy one as they have to learn to trust one another in order to ensure survival.

When writing a series with the same characters, it is extremely important to keep the same character rules in all the books. I feel Aaron Hodges did just that. When I read the first book, I wasn’t too crazy about Chris. It took me a long while to like him, but as the pages went on, the character grew as characters should. They all did. And in Renegades, they continued to grow and flourish.

Now that the introduction to the series is over, the second book gives you more action and more tension…it’s hard to put down. By the time I finished the book, I wanted more. It’s well written, tight and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the third and final installment, Retaliation.

Although this is the second book and a bunch of things happened in the first that readers should know, I feel you don’t have to read Rebirth in order to enjoy this one. Hodges does well in explaining through out what happened previously.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
