” A highly entertaining read”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Keith
In an alternative history where German invades Britain, Dark September by author Brendan Gerad O’Brien, tells the tale of a father as he tries to protect his son during world war two. Brendan’s début novel reveals him to be fully conversant with all aspects of war as its the authentic tone that had me hooked. A highly entertaining read, full of tension and well drawn characters, as the reader will experience what the characters feel through their love, their loss and their fear. One final note – its very violent in parts, but I suppose that’s war!
About the Author
Originally from Tralee on the west coast of Ireland, Brendan Gerad O’Brien now lives in Wales with his wife Jennifer and two daughters.
As a child he spent his summer holidays in Listowel, Co Kerry, where his uncle Moss Scanlon had a Harness Maker’s shop, which regrettably, is long gone now.
The shop was a magnet for all sorts of colourful characters. It was there that Brendan’s love of words was kindled by the stories of John B. Keane and Bryan MacMahon, who often wandered into the shop for a chat and bit of jovial banter.
Now retired, Brendan is actively pursuing his favourite hobby – writing short stories! Many of them have already been published individually over the years, and he’s extremely proud of the twenty that have been collated into one fascinating, easy to read collection called Dreamin’ Dreams.
His WW2 action thrill Dark September is also available to download as an ebook from Kindle
