Book Description:

Daniel and his younger brother grew up in an abusive home. Daniel escaped. Now an established stunt rider, he intends to go back to rescue his brother. But then one jump goes horribly wrong . . .

He recovers to find himself in Iowa, unscathed, yet his life has drastically changed. His best friend won’t answer his calls. Even his girlfriend is hiding something. Increasingly terrified, he clings to the one thing he knows: He must pick up his brother in San Francisco. In five days.

​From the isolating fields of Iowa to the crowded streets of San Francisco, Daniel must fight his way through a fog of disjointed memories and supernatural encounters to face the truth and pay a debt he didn’t know he owed.

REVIEW By LAWonder10:

For readers who enjoy “elemental” books and books of different dimensions, then this is the book for you.

It is a bizarrely unique story about two brothers who develop a very close bond. The eldest is nine years older but has full care of his younger brother. The mom is a single mom who works the ‘graveyard” shift. 

This story about a very dysfunctional childhood reverts between past and present. It s slightly confusing and first, but as the story progresses, so does the clarification.

It is quite well-written and is very captivating. It brings various emotions to the “surface”.

The scenes are very well-portrayed. The characters are varied and well defined. However, the significance f the Title is unclear. It doesn’t really state anywhere why this is a meaningful title. It is very abstract.

It keeps the reader guessing, “What will happen?”. until the very end.

Because of the slight confusion, I felt in varying places of the book, I offer a Three and a Half Stars rating.

This book was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
