I absolutely loved, loved, loved The Bridge!!! I do have to say that there are a few spelling and grammatical errors, and a few places where the sentence structure could use a little bit more
editing/proofreading. However, this was not bad enough to cause any problems with reading through those areas.

With that said, I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the plot! The story was absolutely amazing! It has a wonderfully amazing supernatural element and I really loved the way the author p

(I received a free copy, in exchange for a review.)

Alex is a very special type of person, as in he has strong psychic talents and has his whole life. With this talent, it has lead him in many different directions, but one experience, when he was younger scarred and scared him. This is when he decided he needed to put up walls, to block himself from some elements of the psychic world. His girlfriend, Ronnie, happens to be the local police sergeant. She happens to be a bit older tha

Well, it was a long time coming - but I finally got around to reading “The Bridge”.
Alex always refers to Veronica (a tough police officer) as ‘his lady’. This reminded me of my pop always saying my mom was ‘his better half’.
I especially liked Sergeant Veronica Ross who had fetching green hair and a mass of deep red hair. She was testing out her new police bike on a winding stretch of highway. She wanted to see how it handled the curves at high speeds. Suddenly the sound of a car horn got her at

This was my first book I read by an indie author. I met Allan a year ago on LinkedIn and, both being budding writers, we shared ideas and situations to do with writing. I was given the opportunity to read his book and took it.

It is my opinion that the story line is strong and very convincing. The book has a great deal of well developed characters, although I find a few of these character traits not fitting the situation the person is in, this could just be me with a biased opinion on how people

You'll think twice about going in the water!

Exhilerating! The story kept me tense the whole way through. I normally don't read horror as I prefer science fiction and fantasy but after receiving a copy of the novel it is my habit to always read all the way through and I'm glad I did. There is even a touch of sci-fi in the mix which pleased me. The story was creative and, at times, frightening, the good way a horror book should be. A number of sub-plots rounded out the novel but it is the main plo

The Bridge was a fantastic story that completely sucked me in. The characters were great, with witty banter that had me cracking up. You will not be able to put this down! This story takes a charming English psychic into a dark, mysterious, and evil world.

Twists and turns will have you thinking, "did that really just happen?"

Wonderful story reminiscent of my Dean Koontz days. I will be watching for more from this author.

Thrilling book with a lot of twists and turns. The author takes the reader on a ghostly and psychic journey. It's a quick read that proved to be very entertaining.

He did a great job of mixing horror and spooky story lines with character development. Once I was able to sit down and read the book, I was sad to see it end.

There were a few spelling, missing words, and grammatical errors in the book, but with a great plot line those can easily be overlooked. I was too entrapped in "what the heck is

Proof that being an indie author is no disqualification from writing a good book. Allan does a great job of building suspense, relationships among well-developed characters and keeping the book moving. I hesitated from giving the book the rating it deserved based on some editing issues, but I know how difficult that can be as a fellow indie writer. He will address those. In the meantime, he has no problem in writing a spellbinding story with paranormal elements. I look forward to reading The Shi ...more

Honestly, this was a very well thought out book. It has a uniqueness to it that I have not read in some time now. The characters were funny, yet serious. The book started going from the first page and never stopped. The more characters introduced, the more intriguing the book actually became, unlike some books that just have too many to keep up with.

There was just enough "sex scenes" to keep it modest, yet were able to understand the relationships of the people involved.

The only thing that le

I finally read The Bridge, and it was definitely worth buying. I found myself following the main character, Alex Hill, sympathizing as he is dragged back into a world that he had shunned after a tragic misfortune. I went along on the journey, hoping that Alex is able to discover the source of the threat that looms over the community, and that he, along with his girlfriend, find a way to save not only the town, but Alex as well.

This was a very good and fast read for those of us who are limited on time. The story line actually had some unexpected twists and turns. The author's first voyage into the world of storytelling was an enjoyable one.
In a lot of ways this book felt like The Ring/Ringu smashed together with a police procedural. It's not a bad concept, but I felt that it could have been executed better.

There were some genuinely well written moments, such as the use of water and the scenes where the redshirts ended up dead via ghost. For the most part, the characters are likable enough and there's some fun banter between the cops. The running gag involving the police radio was actually rather fun.

However, there's a lot of struc

I was born and raised on Long Island New York. Always a dreamer I fell in love with Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Horror shows and movies. Some of my favorite all time TV shows that I still watch on DVD are the original Dark Shadows, the original Twilight Zone series, Doctor Who, The Outer Limits (original) etc.

I came to California in the mid 1980's with my Mom and one of my brothers. Once here, I fell in
