Don't judge a book by it's cover

This is a very short story to introduce Sam Wick. His mission is to rescue a young girl from being sold at auction. He has disguised himself as an old man to throw off his competitors. Winner takes all, losers die. Interesting character and story line.

A quick read. Hurray for the older man! What a surprise he turns out to be. Good story. Just needs to be longer, more detailed.

Wicked Storm by Chase Austin was a quick read that will leave you wanting more. Sam Wick is a Bruce Lee type of hero. This book has it all from slave trade, martial arts, cage fighting to the death and a woman to be rescued!

I was pleasantly surprised how quickly the story unfolded. I received this book as an advance copy and I always review every book that I read. I recommend this action packed story.

A brutal introduction to a new thriller series

Wicked Storm is the first in a new series of thrillers by author Chase Austin. The story is fast paced and centers around a cage match to the death as part of a human trafficking operation. In the midst of this seedy, savage setting an old man and his young companion enter the fray and join the death match for

Wicked Storm - This short story is my first read by this author and I did and did not like it. I like the character Samuel, but I did not like the writing style. Maybe with a few years writing under his belt, Mr. Austin may develop into a good writer. This story did show originality but came across as pretentious, which the author has since corrected so the pretentious vocabulary is reduced. There is an overview, which I appreciate knowing what the story is about before I read it.

ONE EXPLOSIVE ADVENTURE!!!
OMG! Man, talk about riding on a razors edge. A whirlwind of unexpected circumstances and mishaps that keep you flipping page after page catapulting all of your emotions into play.  One sensational storyline and thrilling plot propel this bad boy bursting to life beautifully. The characters are authentic, relatable and realistic with personalities and depth that keep you captivated from start to finish. Sparks fly as danger and suspense ensues in epic proportions. Non-s

If every book in the series keeps up the pace that this intro to the series has, I'm going to need oxygen and snacks permanently to hand when reading. What a start to a series! I have to say that I was a little unsure what to expect with this book with it being a short book that dealt with such a vile but horribly real topic as human trafficking. I approached it with trepidation as I thought it was going to be in your face crudeness and trigger sensitive. Let me tell you, it has been written so ...more

This is a very exciting story about a black ops assassin who is sent in to a combination auction and cage fight to the death, to rescue a young girl.
It is very difficult to get a handle on a new character in a short story like this, but Sam Wick seems like an interesting man.
The story is well written and certainly exciting, although perhaps the way the violence was portrayed was rather matter-of fact which reduced the impact somewhat. There was also a bit of an inconsistency in the plot which st

There are days I like a complex thriller that require a degree of reflection and there are days I like a straightforward hero like Sam Wick. It's simple, when all hell breaks loose, send in Sam Wick!!! He is the type of character we all imagine as ourselves, saving the beautiful woman and the world.


I read this short story almost as fast as one of Wick's strikes. It kept me going straight through to the end. My only complaint is due to my own ignorance. I didn't know it was in short story format

I’m so happy to be able to leave a review for this story. I assumed in the first few pages that this was another gruesome story about the abduction of a teenage girl and how she would be sold on the black market. However, I soon learned this story was not what I was expecting. It’s the story of how this same teenage girl is saved by an awesome protective agent. He walks in and shows everyone how it’s done. Get out of the way for Sam or you probably won’t wake up to find out how it ends. Awesome ...more

This was a taut succinct short story, very short. This was an action filled tale, with a well scripted fight which was the whole storyline, but not a lot of character development. I will have to read more in this series to see how it develops, I like a little more set-up, and explanation than this introduction could provide, but that was hinted at in the conclusion.

This is the 1st book I've read written Chase Austin; he has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of his books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a fast paced thriller with lots of subtle action. The hero is almost too much and borders on believability. But Austin pulls it off in a good way. If you want a quick shot of action and suspense, these Rapid Thrillers are the way to go. Austin is a talented writer. I look forward to reading more by this author.

Not sure how to describe this book: a short novella or a long short story. Either way, it starts out with a bang and just keeps growing. Very intense and violent, but I have to admit, not overly graphic. I will definitely be checking out the next book in the series.

For a short story it moved fast and was very entertaining. A good way to introduce the main character. The main character is not what you expected him to as he was described in the book. The bad guys were for a rude awakening and did not expect what that got. Enjoyed this book. Can’t wait to read more by Chase. I rec’d this book free from the author and in return was asked to leave a honest review.

Very fast read, but an effective introduction to Sam Wick and his world. If the future Sam Wick stories are like Wicked Storm this should be an excellent series to follow.
