For Balance - Book 2
Is it possible for somebody to write something fresh and new? It seems that we are constantly being fed, and force-fed, the same regurgitated stories, with similar plots and thin, stereo-typed characters. One sided characters, with whom we can’t truly identify. And always the same basic plot, always one crazy person in the story, one bible-punching lunatic to add flesh to the same monotonous song. One good guy, who starts off downtrodden and washed-out, who suddenly takes on the problems of the world and becomes the hero – he can now do no wrong.
Enter Jet Clarence … trying to find a balance, walking a tightrope, and slipping both ways. At the end of the first book you have already identified with him and some of the other characters … you are hooked on the story but can’t yet work out what is coming next in this deceptive, slippery plot .. and left hanging for the sequel.
By the end of this, the second book, you are closer to some of the truths … I think … You have an even deeper understanding and even more empathy with one or more of the characters. You have alternately been shocked, on the edge of your seat, been horrified and also laughed throughout.
BUT … you are again left hanging for the sequel. And it had better be the goddamn last book … I don’t think I could go through this waiting a third time.
Magical, absorbing, awe-inspiring – are just a few words for this author. His writing style is fresh and unique.
I give him a 9 out of 10. And he only lost one point for making me argue with my husband, who has also read the book. We argued, can you believe it, about our opposing views on the characters? As though they were real people and laughed when we realised we were shouting angrily at each other, about a piece of fiction … a piece of fiction so real, it climbs into your head.
Fantastic, can't believe it is a first novel! I can't wait to read the next book :)

I loved this book. I found myself spellbound from page one, and was literally thinking about the story when I wasn't actually reading it. The characters are well rounded, the story concept original in its own way, and my only complaint is that book two isn't out yet.
I picked this ebook up a few days ago, and have already completed it. This book kept me up way late into the night and I'm really looking forward to book 2. Really good read for a first novel. When can we expect book 2?
I truly enjoyed reading Balance Book One and look forward to reading the next one. Let me know when it comes out and expect me to go for it. I especially loved Jet. He's such a riviting character I couldn't help but love him.
Balance... the one thing we strive for in our daily lives. Balance captures this battle perfectly. It is full of energy, passion, love and suspension. It will capture the imagination of the reader and keep them captivated right trough the whole book.
This book is amazing, I recommend it to all my friends, as a really good read to relax too.
A fantastic book. I am not a reader but this book - I could not put down! There is not one boring page. Will definitely be getting the next book.
