A must say that I had a feeling that this book was going to be epic after just reading the description. I downloaded a sample of the book before buying it and was sucked right in! Be prepared to tear through this book. The characters are compelling in their complexity. I like the descriptive nature of the book. I almost felt like I was standing right there with the characters. In some cases I was too close. To say this was a thrill ride really takes away from the art used to describe the setting [...]
This is a thriller of the third degree! The characters are well defined and the story moves rapidly from past to present with exciting emotion. The author knows how to tell a good story and how to pull all ends together. The readers will be kept on the edge of their seats as the story moves along providing twists and turns and unlimited surprises.This is the first book by John Ainsworth that I have read but will not be the last. I look forward to more by this gifted storyteller. Other than some [...]

This was a great book. I really enjoyed the action and suspense. At times, I felt like I was in an action movie instead of just reading a book. The characters were interesting and I became caught up in the story very easily. Interesting ending and I look forward to reading the next one in the series.
Emerald by John J. Ainsworth - A dangerous book to start reading before bed (if you want to sleep) as you won't be able to put it down until you hit the last page. A very well scripted, fast paced adventure that leaves you wanting more. Looking forward to The Coming Storm!
