The Execution

Today I’m featuring a book that I’m reading for review. 

The explosive noise of the guns had set off a chain reaction, sheets of wet snow dropping from the limbs of the pine trees surrounding Jeremy Fisk. Even after the gunfire stopped, Fisk could hear limbs snapping, snow thudding to earth, a circular cataract expanding, fading away from him like ripples in a frigid pond.

And then the endless forest … went silent.

My God, thought Fisk. They’re all dead.

I was sent a copy of this book to review and I have to tell you … that intro definitely caught my eye! So far I’m only a couple of chapters in, but this book definitely has my attention for now!
