This is one of those reviews that I hate to write. Why do I hate to write it? Well, let me explain.
I judge a book by its cover. I know that I’m not supposed to, but I do. Constant Fear has a fantastic cover, that’s what first grabbed my attention.
The next thing that I look at is the synopsis, and Constant Fear has a great sounding premise; a fallen hero (Jake Dent) is haunted by a mistake from his past. Jake’s son has become a modern day Robin Hood who has bitten off more than he can chew. Jake must use the tools and skills he has acquired to save his son in a “violent, brutal struggle that will test Jake to the limit”. Now that sounds exciting!
Constant Fear was a well written book. I can’t criticize the flow or the writing in any way. No typos, editing, or other proofing issues. I just didn’t connect with the book, and I don’t know why.
This is just one of those books that didn’t work for me, but it will undoubtedly work for many other readers. I found that it was lacking a little something to create that necessary connection.
