“Tipping Over into Terror”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Kindle Customer
Mac, the viewpoint character in Tipping Point, is a fascinating and empowered woman and I fell in love almost from the first page reading this story from what I presume is first time author Rain Strickland. I say presume be cause she writes like she’s been doing this professionally for years. The story is tense and filled with a sense of waiting danger almost from the beginning, but the author didn’t feel the need to rush the action, and for this I commend her. I also enjoyed the supporting characters and felt the extra time before the SHTF allowed readers to get to know them better. On the technical side, the editing is professional and the writing style is crisp and to the point. Overall, a satisfying, and terrifying, book, and I am eager to see what this author will bring us next. On bit of warning, though. The adult relationship between Mac and Neil as described made me blush at times, but that is probably just me. Oh, and the ferrets made my ankles itch. Read it and see what I mean.
My disclaimer-I am a fan of this genre as well as an author and I bought the book after reading the teaser on Amazon. I don’t know this author and thought the premise sounded interesting. Wow. Glad I took the time to go looking for something new to read.
