Galen considers himself somewhat of a Robin Hood of blackmailers. He and his team find targets that are doing bad things and then blackmail them with an amount that would hopefully make them reconsider their ways. The book starts off with collecting from a Bishop who was having a relationship with a underage girl. From there we meet Galen's crew and get into his next target that he has planned.

Unfortunately for Galen and crew the next target is Robert Brand. Brand is the son in law of a big bus

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Excellent story. I read it in one afternoon. I couldn't put it down. Galen is a blackmailer. He doesn't want to physically hurt anyone, he just wants to get a small measure of justice (monetary) and warn his victims from any further illegal activity.He lives his life under the radar, not too lavishly or loudly not calling any kind of unwarranted attention to himself or his cronies. Then he tries to get some of his bl ...more

Johnny contacted me and asked if I would read his book and review it. The description interested me so I said yes. I'm SO glad I did. I was sucked into the story with the first couple paragraphs and didn't come up for breath for several hours. Johnny does a fantastic job weaving a story that keeps the reader guessing about what is going to happen, how people are connected and how people are going to act. I kept thinking a revelation was going to happen for different characters that you weren't c ...more

Thank you to the author for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book I have read by the author and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Galen is a blackmailer who works with a team to extort money from Robert Brand when his plans go awry. Now Galen is on the run. This was a fun and fast paced suspense with interesting characters and plot twists . I hope the author has more plans for Galen and his team! 4.5 stars

I loved this book and couldn't put it down. The twists and turns the story took kept me guessing right to the end. I could relate to the main character's ideology though I'm not too sure on the penalties he demands from some. I was so glad that a physically imperfect (in his eyes)person found true, reciprocated love.

The main downside for me was such a little thing, it's the name Galen. It's probably an idiosyncrasy of my own but I am always left feeling unsatisfied if I am unsure as to how to p

3.5 stars that I rounded up to a solid 4 because I couldn't put it down and had a satisfying ending that I didn't see coming. The opening pages had me thinking this was going to be a book about religion but in fact it is not. This is a tale reminiscent of Robin Hood where unsavory deeds are done to punish those who deserve it. The main character, Galen, is a blackmailer who punishes otherwise unpunished deeds under the guise of anonymity. The story begins as one demand is ending and another is b ...more

Great book, once you start you must keep going. The story just keeps you so involved. Hope Galen & Co have more blackmailing adventures to report in the future!

I received an ebook copy of The Brand Demand from the author himself, Johnny Worthen in exchange for an honest review.

While the main character, Galen, started off seeming a bit ‘nerdy’ with his obsession with computer games, his recluse type of lifestyle and his Robin Hood and his merry team type blackmailing (steal from the rich and wicked and give to the poor or good and deserving causes) he emerged as a very interesting and dynamic personality. Gradually his background emerges while he is in

How do you review a book written by a friend, other than to say, "It's fantastic! Everyone should read it!" Well, I told Johnny about some very minor issues I found. Some are editing. Others are writing, but so common that many writers would make the same mistakes. I won't point them out to you. I'll just say, this book had me going. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. While I did figure out part of the big mystery, some of it was not expected. I can see lots of Johnny in this book. ...more

This book wasn't what I was expecting. The story follows the failed attempt at blackmailing Robert Brand, son-in-law of Calson, the richest man in Utah. Galen, left wing eco-warrior, Likes to research his victims, unfortunately there isn't time with Brand.

The Story follows Galen trying to figure out what went wrong and where Robert Brand went, introducing characters and tangents as it goes.
