Rough Men by Aric Davis
Rough Men by Aric Davis
5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a Ride, July 21 2014
This is a short read- 187 pages. But don't let that put you off - this novel is jam packed with action.

Will Daniels has not led a good life. He fears he has failed his devoted wife, Alison and their son Alex. When Alex's body turns up burnt beyond recognition, he fears the worst.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Drama at Darracia, July 21 2014
I am not sure how many books the author has in mind for his series, but this is the second and, quite clearly there is to be at least one more. These are not standalone novels,and any reader who comes across this one without having read the first will find it difficult to catch up with the thread of the story.

However, having read the first about three months back I found it very easy to pick up on this tale. Without wishing to do the author any disservice it is clear that this is most suitable for a young adult audience. However, I, who am certainly not a young adult, found the characters such as V'Sair, Tulani, Zayden and Denita interesting and I began to care about what was… Read more
