Monday Mini – A Mighty Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney @KerryDenney
A Mighty Rolling Thunder - Kerry Alan Denney,Nicolle Brown,Edd Sowder

 

A Might Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney is another one of those books that slipped through the crack. I finished reading it on 11.14.16 and loved it. Soooo…here we go.

 

Love the fabulous cover by Nicolle Brown Designs.

MY REVIEW

 

A Mighty Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney starts out so nice…but it quickly turns into a run for her life for Livy…enter Conor, a guy with no memory…

 

At 17% it hit me…I have had those same thoughts. What would I do? How far would I be willing to go if the shit hit the fan? Lawlessness, fear, hunger, need, desire…The Rapture…the people are gone, just vanished.

 

Could you imagine talking to your dog, yeah, I know you already do, but what if he really understood you…and talked back?

 

Victor, oh yeah, he’s the villain and he wants to rule the world and would do anything to make it happen. Power, he wants it.

 

Free will. Do you choose to share joy or sorrow? Hope or despair? Love or damnation?

 

I enjoy a desolate world with a cast of characters that must band together to survive.

 

Throw in some magic (?), and I am in heaven. Too bad these guys weren’t, but it sure did make for a great story because of it.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of A Mighty Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney.

A Mighty Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney is a frightening paranormal story. It's about the end of the world. I gave it five stars. It is non-stop action and breath-taking intensity.
 
Protagonist Livi DeSilva is a thirty-three-year old artist on the run for survival. Her golden retriever is named Beauty. She met Conor McLain, an amnesiac. He had a German shepherd named T-Rex. They teamed up in an effort to survive a mutual foe, Victor van Danz, a reprehensible and thoroughly repulsive psychopath.
 
Brady and Bethany Murdock, were compassionate farmers who owned twenty-six-acres outside Titusville, South Carolina. They had Cisco and Pancho, two seven-year-old yellow Labrador retrievers who kept the hens safe in the eighth-of-an-acre coop.
 
They survived "The Event" as Beth called it and they also could understand their dogs.
 
"More than anyone else, he was worried about Beth. She was more than just the air he breathed. She was the blood pumping through his veins, the endless fount of strength and joy that made life much more than just a struggle to survive. He couldn’t imagine a world without her in it."
 
Conor went to the Renfield-Stafford Boys Home and was horrified. "Staggering, Conor followed the tracks down the hall.
 
I know this place. I don’t remember it, but I know it.
 
Bile rose in his throat, and he choked it back. 'Whatever kind of man I was before my archives got dumped in the recycle bin,' he said out loud, just to hear his voice and remember he was alive and only visiting Hell, 'I didn’t do this.'"
 
I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.
 
It is in pre-order status until December 3, 2016 so I could not leave a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Marionettes
Marionettes - Kerry Alan Denney Marionettes had a great premise, but the execution wasn’t the best. The power to leap from person to person’s mind – to control and to know them – is awesome. The directions this book could have went? Fantastic. The book failed to live up the potential. The writing itself wasn’t bad. There were few spelling or punctuation errors. Some of the characters were memorable and fun. The action really is non-stop. Basically, all the window dressing was perfectly fine, but the core of the book needs a little more work.

There were two main problems with Marionettes. The first one is that basically every single important event was telegraphed. Every one of them. You were basically told “This is going to be important later”. There was no real mystery, no suspense. There was maybe one thing that wasn’t revealed from the outset. You were told everything that was important before you could even wonder if it was or not. In every book I’ve read where something like this has gone on, the result has been the same – I did not like the book. I do not like – I don’t think many readers do – being spoon fed every piece of information and hardly being given anything to speculate or wonder about. It just doesn’t work out well.

The second problem is that it just wasn’t believable – and I’m not talking about the premise. The main character did go through some pain in the beginning, but beyond bad dreams doesn’t really seem to be appreciably affected. He wakes up with a superpower, then has smoking hot women falling over him left and right. He always manages to escape in the nick of time. Who barely thinks twice about cheating on the woman he supposedly loves, and walks away with only a mildly guilty conscience. No one is that lucky, super-power or no. He just never really felt like a ‘real’ character to me.

MY REVIEW

 

The creepy cover of Marionettes by Kerry Alan Denney hints at the story inside. This supernatural thriller has enough twists and turns to keep me reading and marveling at the thought provoking scenarios David is forced to work through as he battles the evil lurking around every corner.

 

David Flint awoke in a hospital bed, confused and struggling to remember what happened. All he could think was WTH is going on. Have you ever had an out of body experience? David Flint has, but it goes so much further than that…he is the Marionette Man. He can mind jump. He not only knows what people think and feel, but he can control their actions.

 

I loved the scene in the hospital with the junkie. I wonder if I would have done the same…or worse, but you will have to read the book to find out more.

 

The Marionettes takes place in Gulfport, Mississippi, a place I know very well. In fact I just returned from a trip there on Tuesday. I know the devastation of a hurricane, which is what killed David Flint. His wife had died in a senseless accident some time before but her family still welcomed him with open arms. Eleana, his mother-in-law, is a hurricane force of her own, giving and well intentioned. Benny, his father-in-law, has a funny streak and is quite the comic, but can be counted on when needed. Shaina, his sister-in-law, has always been in love with him, yet she is determined to be his best friend, if that is what he needs to recover from Karin’s loss. She suffers from Karin’s loss too. She is quite the character and I wonder what their relationship will be.

 

When David Flint pisses off the wrong guy who is capable of so much more than David, I wonder how he could come out of this alive. The evil grows and challenges every resource he has.

 

I chuckled at the shower scene…and it’s 5 0’clock somewhere, so if David’s having a beer, I don’t want him to drink alone…so CHEERS.

 

What would be the repercussions of mind jumping? What moral and ethical dilemmas would arise? Maybe some secrets are best kept.

 

Marionettes makes me ask the question, “How far would I go to save the ones I love?”

I haven’t read a story quite like Marionettes and I love it. Kerry Alan Denney’s imagination and creative writing lend the story a sense of reality and brought mind jumping to life as I wondered if I would be able to follow the straight and narrow or would I bend the rules for my own personal gain? As David deals with his demons Kerry Alan Denny gives me food for thought and I feel the questions will linger long after I finish reading

 

I will be checking out more of Kerry Alan Denney’s award winning work and I look forward to taking another fantastic adventure through the pages with him.

If fast-paced sci-fi is your thing, then certainly try this one on for size.
Jagannath - Kerry Alan Denney

After trying to slog through Fantastes, and only succeeding to get to 30% because of the heaviness of the old language, switching to Jagannath was a fantastic relief. Especially when I realised that the writing style was light and playful, with loads of action that was to the point and active.

I liked the characters, Kimi and Lily, and I especially liked the importance of the canine friends too. The male cast was lacking in substance as far as I was concerned. There were plenty of them, but they played far smaller roles in the story and this became a problem when it came to characters to kill off.

The plot was engaging and while the characters dragged themselves from crisis to crisis, I found myself cheering them on. The down side to all this turmoil was that there wasn't really enough down time to get to know the characters all that well. When partners and loved ones died, I wasn't really sad because of this. It lacked the emotional connection with the reader.

If fast-paced sci-fi is your thing, then certainly try this one on for size. The tone and light conversation made it easy to read. The age of Lily (one of the main characters) really dictated the tone and voice of the piece, with some sex scenes lightly brushed over, not graphic or detailed.

Some readers have marked this as horror, but in the grand scheme of things, I found it neither horrifying nor thrilling. Perhaps this is due to the adult horror books I've read. I wouldn't consider this horror, though there was some slightly graphic descriptions of death scenes. I didn't find it overly graphic, nor too far past what is depicted in computer games these days. I believe this means it'd be suitable for most teen readers.

I didn't find any typos or errors, which is a big plus, but ultimately I felt the lack of emotional connection with the characters let this book down. It was enjoyable and engaging, but didn't allow enough reader connection.
