Hellbounce (The ARC Chronicles Book 1) by Matthew W. Harrill

An amazing story!

Join the 'forgettable' Madden and psychotherapist Eva Ross, helped along the way by Janus and the ARC, as they race against time to save mankind and stop the Apocalypse.

This well-paced and action-packed book grabs your attention and holds it to the last page and beyond. It's a great story with a well thought out plot. The graphically detailed descriptions don't just let you visualise the scene, they draw you in and make you a part of it. I loved being a part of this adventure.

The interesting and dimensional characters were strong, believable and easy to love... or hate.

I am very interested to see where the story takes me in the second book, Hellborne.


(I won a copy of Hellbounce from the author in a Facebook giveaway.)




Synopsis:

As a psychologist in a prison hospital, Eva Ross had always dealt with her share of sinners. The corrupt, the insane, their minds were all hers to unlock. But when those around her, those she trusted with her life start to exhibit the same characteristics, she is forced to turn to a stranger, a man whose name she is incapable of even remembering, for sanctuary.

Follow Eva as she crosses continents to unlock the answers, and her eventual destiny.

Hellbounce. Demons don't always hide in the dark.
