Fear the Sky (The Fear Saga Book 1)
By Stephen Moss
Part 1 comes off a lot like an old Charlie Sheen movie called The Arrival. I really liked that movie and I really like this plot. Rogue scientist struggling on a government contract has insights of genius and becomes a target. Really cool combination. Editing in this section was excellent and dialed in also.
Part 2 on the plot seemed to get really driven beyond the pace of the story with whole segments appearing to get rammed through between chapters. It went through the narrator time warp. This is also where the editing train wreck occurred and held on through the end of the book. The M’s. Misused words, misplaced words, downright missing words and then the dreaded support crew of ‘rewrite-rescan-and still missed it’.
First part was really high quality and I was into the plot. After that it went wrong, felt rushed and the quality plummeted. I’m going to give this one three out of five points overall and state that it almost got the review of silence. I did finish reading it so it gets a review but though tempted to read the sequels I’m leaning toward not because of the quality of this one.
