NEW Review for The Fires of Waterland
You can bet on it. Every author loves to see new reviews come in for books when they are published, —with a lot of hope, a few dreams, great expectations, and abated breath. The Fires of Waterland is no exception.
The Fires of Waterland (2nd Ed. Lit Fiction, some adult content.) was recently published in both print and eBook versions by Equidae (Rocking Horse Publishing).
I am delighted to be able to share this new review with readers of Incoming Bytes.com —and the world.
The Fires of Waterland by Raymond Alexander Kukkee
If a book is to be judged by its cover, then the Fires of Waterland by R.A. Kukkee presents the reader with an ominous presence. Fire remains ever present in the belly of the story, in the lives of the characters. Water, its polar opposite cools the spirits with self doubt and secrecy.
Polar views of the poor, and of those in control arise along raw conflict. They drive suspense with a certain knowledge of the ruts on these roads. Truth and adversity make strange bedfellows in this movie of the mind. “Some things are better left under the bed, like dust balls” said Floyd, a smart man in this saga.
Dialogue is well served with unwavering accuracy; Fletch and Livvy take us on a tour of youthful yearnings and covert feelings. They lead us into explosive consequences and let us explore the innermost flesh of being. The stuff of living permeates the very innards of this book from page one. Hard and ultimately hopeful; like life. Like fire.
