Written By Blood: Conviction by Dwayne Gill is an action-packed techno-thriller that is sure to keep you entertained right from the start to the very end. This book is jam-packed with high octane thrilling action and masculine drama like there's no tomorrow. The storyline was good and the thing I liked best about this books is that it revolved around male characters, something rare to find in today's books where the leading lady always steals the show, so for me, this book was a real treat.

This is a well written and storming thriller set a few years into the future. Not, in my mind, a sci-fi thriller but there are some elements of technological advancements best underpinned by the passage of a few years of time. So don’t be put off if sci-fi is not your thing.
In the excellent prequel books “Cane’s Detour” and “Daniel’s Darkness” we meet to dangerous individuals, one a US trained assassin and one an overly large natural killer. Both books are well worth seeking out and establish tw

I’m always a touch wary when reading a book, the title of which includes the words “part one”, having been left hanging on many occasions by infuriating and sometimes ridiculous cliffhangers. However, this is not one of those books, I’m pleased to say; I don’t think I’m spoiling it in any way by saying that “Conviction” is satisfyingly self-contained, whilst leaving a tantalising hint at the bigger picture of the series generally – as Marcene says: “A storm is coming”, and you do indeed sense th ...more

I am always on the lookout for new authors and it takes a well crafted, well-written story to catch my attention. I had picked up a free copy of Cane's Detour and Daniel's Darkness and my interest was piqued with these two characters so when the chance came for an advanced copy of Written by Blood, I took it. When I picked it up, the blurbs had stated that the two prequels be read prior. Cane's Detour definitely yes, but I feel Daniel's Darkness can be read before or after as the connection does ...more

After reading and thoroughly enjoying the prequels Cane's Detour and Daniel's Darkness I eagerly jumped at a Chance to read an advance copy of this book and wasn't disappointed. This superior thriller picks you up straight away and drags you along. We meet Cane checking in on Kristy against his instincts he has maintained a connection with the young woman and her mother after the events five years previously and in his own way enjoys the connection made.
After one of these visits he finds maybe

Part thriller, part sci-fi, this futuristic novel, Written By Blood, Part One: Conviction, by Dwayne Gill, will hold your attention from beginning to end. Gill knows how to weave a compelling, suspenseful tale, and make you wonder if some of the somewhat sci-fi components of the story could ever come to be.

Set in 2023 through 2028, it is a very different world from the one we know today. Guns as we know them are all but gone, replaced by E-guns that will fire only by the person whose fingerprint

The author provided his prequels in order to prepare for reading this book and it was so wonderful, as I wanted to start reading this immediately! I couldn't wait and started it right away! I was not disappointed. A sci-fi thriller that does not disappoint. This book is a 5-star because, well it is a 5-star. If the next book is better, I'll say I'd give it 6 stars if I could. Books should be judged on themselves, not on expectations of now or of the future. So this is a fabulous book and I highl ...more

Excellent book, nearly impossible to put down!!! It may be in the sci-fi category but it is way more action, adventure, suspense, and thriller with just a tiny amount of sci-fi. Definitely recommend reading the 2 prequels before starting this book, but not reading them will not take away from the plot.
Cane is genetically unique man, trained by the government from birth to be “no questions asked” assassin. But he is so much more than they anticipated. And he will make them all pay for hurting som

If your particular taste is nonstop, breathtaking, action thrillers with tuned-up science in a near-futuristic setting; and if you also enjoy conspiracy theory dilemmas; take a look right here. This novel will blow you out of the water, because it is jampacked full with all of that. I hardly took a breath during my reading. Just whenever I thought something had been straightened out, I was wrong...more action, more breathtaking suspense; and that reader's hook! Totally awesome! (Tragic, yet awes ...more

Having read the prequels I was more than ready for this book to come out. Some great character building and I assume and hope more of their background will be available in the coming books. It kept my interest throughout and I am now ready for the next book! Why not 5 stars? Because I hope the series continues and there is only one way to go from top marks and that is down. So always aim high.

Action packed! Loved the pace, simply and well written.
The action was non stop and at times hectic (that’s a good thing).
Great character development all round, very surprising and greatly welcomed.
Didn’t think I would cry reading this, again a good thing.
Cane and Daniel, trained assassins who veer off the path chosen for them, find their own path by finding themselves and friends they didn’t think they wanted or needed...GET ON THIS BANDWAGON PEOPLE!

Excellently written this book held me to the end. Glad I had read the prequel first as it gives a lot of background that is important to the story. Sad to think that this is a possible future but the way the world is progressing, it is believable.

I absolutely loved this book. Read the prequels first! Loved the characters and how well you get to know each, even those that don’t have a big role. The writing style is great, flows well and keeps you wanting more. I am hating having to wait for the next book.

This has been a wonderful thrilling book to read. Great character descriptions and interaction. You know which sides each person is on and why. Then you get to find out what makes each one of the special to the group as a whole.

Sometimes saving the world means recruiting a monster, or two. But, who’s doing the recruiting? Great high intensity read with the fate of the world in play.

What a mystery. So many questions left hanging. I appreciated that the characters continued to develop and take shape and that that wasn't restricted to just the prequels.

I just recently discovered this author and I love his books. This book will make you laugh, cry, cringe in horror and have you quickly turning the next page.

This series just keeps getting better and better!

I could not put this book down! Nonstop Action! I know it sounds cliche, but it is so true. The book had me in suspense. It had me laughing, cheering and gasping and so wanting more. The author throws out a little bone in each book that opens a tiny window into the history and makeup of the characters causing us to willingly hang on until the next one!

Well done!

Dwayne Gill is a new, up-and-coming author with a big imagination. He first thought of the premise of his series "Written By Blood" when he was just twelve years old. Growing up, he loved action movies and larger-than-life heroes, which is evident when reading his writing.
However, as he got older, he became bothered by the typical action figure tropes and the predictability of the plots, causing
