Blurb: They murdered his wife and son. They burned down his house. They beat him within an inch of his life.
And then they realized they had the wrong man.
They should have killed him when they had the chance.
Will Stark is a thirty-five-year-old self-made billionaire. He’s happily married and father to a young son he adores. He’s well-loved in his community for his philanthropic efforts. He lives in a beautiful home inside a private, secure community designed to provide safety for his family from those who would do them harm.
His idyllic world is shattered when, despite his best efforts, men storm his community, murder his family in their home, and burn his house down. In his efforts to rush to the aid of those he loves, Will is seized, beaten, and nearly killed.
And as it’s happening, the men who’ve attacked him realize they’ve mistaken him for someone else.
Will’s rescue from certain death brings him into the midst of a battle between two factions of a secret society, one in which members learn the secrets of developing superhuman abilities. And it’s a battle in which a man named Will Stark has been the focal point. Will seizes the opportunity to learn these secrets, and battle those who destroyed his family. His own rapid development, however, means he may become a target for attack of his own accord.
As he builds his new life, however, Will is faced with a critical decision. Will he use his new abilities to seek out vengeance? Or will he risk everything he has to save those he holds most dear?
Review: I just can’t get into this. I actually listened to this instead of reading it and I have to say, that’s the only reason I got as far as did, which was to chapter 6. It was at least 5 chapters of a different perspective of the same event. Starting said event over to show the beginning of someone else’s POV. Which all was leading up to the end product, which is what the readers saw in the prologue.
So the readers know what happen already, I don’t need 5 different view points of it. Of people I don’t care about and who I’m probably not going to see again. I figure it would have been better had the assassin’s POV been the prologue and then we get a back and forth of his POV and Will’s.
So after 5 chapters of starting the same event over and over, when it finally did start getting into the story at chapter 6…I wasn’t interested in continuing. So, this is a DNF for me, this goes right onto the DNF pile.
I gave it my best shot, but the only reason I got that far was because I was listening to it, so all-in-all…the cover is really nice and eye catching, but the writing is heavily repetitive. Even in the blurb, it repeats itself.
Thank you for reading my review.
