it was amazing

Jason C. McIntyre's, On The Gathering Storm, is a story in which the reader quickly becomes privy to what can happen when our wildest nightmares come to life. Suspense novels can sometimes seem contrived, with authors trying too hard to rattle our cages and throw us off balance. McIntyre rattled the cage so hard, and with such bold strokes, I was knocked down for long, ominous stretches then dragged inside a world in which sick and twisted individuals with broken minds hide in the periphery. McIntyre pushed the envelope, seemingly unwilling to take it back a notch to spare those who tend to be squeamish or easily disturbed.

I'm glad he didn't.

Let's face it---when it comes to unthinkable acts committed by humans, if it can be imagined, then one could certainly find themselves in the throes of such a horrific scenario. Storm's main character is forced to endure an experience most would not survive, creating a dichotomy---part of you will want to look away, while the other will crane like an ambulance chaser approaching a twenty car pile-up. Do you like dark and descriptive? This is your novel! A fascinating, gripping tale.
