When a writer releases a new book, anxiety is always part of the process. You never know how the audience will react to your work. You don’t know if the message you’re trying to send will be understood. You don’t know if your months of work will generate excitement or boredom.
Well, the initial reviews for Smoke and Shadow are in and I’m happy to say reaction has been very good so far. The full novel is still on sale for $.99, so you can get the book in time for Christmas and read it for yourself.
Here’s a sample of what my readers have said:
“[Hennessy] is a master at describing small missions and dangerous situations, leaving you on the edge of your seat, wanting the character to complete their mission...” - G. Blixer
“Hennessy portrays internal torment well as his characters walk the fine line between brutality and empathy.” - P. Earle
“Gamal's mission was to create a world of sensual suspense and tense violence. In that he has succeeded!!” - D. England
“The stories are full of determination, brutal execution, heartfelt emotions and internal struggles that allow the reader to catch a credible glimpse of what the life of a deep cover operator might be like.” - E. Scott
“What I truly admired is how the author uses an action driven genre to touch on human trafficking and slavery. There are plenty of demons driving these characters, and plenty of moments when being morally wrong is in the interest of survival.” - T. Werenko
I hope you take the chance to download Smoke and Shadow at the special $.99 price and enjoy it as much as these great people have. Either way, please enjoy your holiday and look out for my new books in 2016.
