    Written By Blood: Conviction by Dwayne Gill is an action-packed techno-thriller that is sure to keep you entertained right from the start to the very end. This book is jam-packed with high octane thrilling action and masculine drama like there's no tomorrow. The storyline was good and the thing I liked best about this books is that it revolved around male characters, something rare to find in today's books where the leading lady always steals the show, so for me, this book was a real treat.

I liked the writing style as the simplicity of it greatly complimented the plot, though at times it did feel a little rough around the edges, it did not get in the way of reading. The characterization was good and I was able to relate to almost all the characters, primary or secondary. The plot progression was really, really good and the pacing was great too. Overall, it was a really new engaging read which proved to be a quick read and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a book with strong male characters and don't mind gritty action and rustic tones.  You can also read this review on www.thereadingbud.com

    Blown Away When I started reading this book I was very sceptical about it's setting in the future. However I have been Blown away by gripping storyline. I could not put the book down. Thanks.

    This is a well written and storming thriller set a few years into the future. Not, in my mind, a sci-fi thriller but there are some elements of technological advancements best underpinned by the passage of a few years of time. So don’t be put off if sci-fi is not your thing. In the excellent prequel books “Cane’s Detour” and “Daniel’s Darkness” we meet to dangerous individuals, one a US trained assassin and one an overly large natural killer.

Not, in my mind, a sci-fi thriller but there are some elements of technological advancements best underpinned by the passage of a few years of time. So don’t be put off if sci-fi is not your thing. In the excellent prequel books “Cane’s Detour” and “Daniel’s Darkness” we meet to dangerous individuals, one a US trained assassin and one an overly large natural killer. Both books are well worth seeking out and establish two very interesting characters. Written by Blood brings them together when Cane (who prides himself on being invisible) finds a message left for him in his car. The contents change his world view and his place within it. There are highly skilled individuals who want him dead, but luckily the small group he finds himself part of includes the very dangerous Daniel. So an all action conspiracy thriller with strong characters alongside plenty of violence and plot twists. One of those almost under the radar books that deserves better exposure and more readers. If you like the Bourne books with a bit of a modern twist, this could be ideal for you.

    I’m always a touch wary when reading a book, the title of which includes the words “part one”, having been left hanging on many occasions by infuriating and sometimes ridiculous cliffhangers. However, this is not one of those books, I’m pleased to say; I don’t think I’m spoiling it in any way by saying that “Conviction” is satisfyingly self-contained, whilst leaving a tantalising hint at the bigger picture of the series generally – as Marcene says: “A storm is coming”, and you do indeed sense th I’m always a touch wary when reading a book, the title of which includes the words “part one”, having been left hanging on many occasions by infuriating and sometimes ridiculous cliffhangers. However, this is not one of those books, I’m pleased to say; I don’t think I’m spoiling it in any way by saying that “Conviction” is satisfyingly self-contained, whilst leaving a tantalising hint at the bigger picture of the series generally – as Marcene says: “A storm is coming”, and you do indeed sense this throughout the book and at the conclusion of this instalment; something more grand and something menacing is definitely brewing in the background, if not yet ready to reveal itself. If not particularly outstanding for any reason, “Conviction” is certainly an entertaining actioner, formulaic, in the usual three acts, with all the elements you would expect from that: a tough bad guy, sinister high-level corruption, a vulnerable protectee (or three or four) and an elusive link to a threatening past. Add to this the spectre of a deadly super-villain with epic (and surely terrible) plans, and you have a pretty entertaining book, in the vein of Childs or Koontz, which is definitely worth a read. “Conviction” is action-packed in all the right places, yet timed and paced well; so well, in fact, as to incorporate its plot, sub-plots, and backstories, all within an enjoyable 170 pages. Add to this an ensemble of genuinely layered and thought-provoking characters, whom Gill knows well, and you get a lot packed in to this relatively short book without overkill. The action scenes are rousing and satisfying set-pieces, and the moments in between are genuinely poignant; despite the machine-like persona of the principle, Cane, you do find yourself empathizing with him for that very reason. Gill is a good author, with a professional approach to fiction writing, whom I wish well. His addition of the optional free download of a couple of short stories, to enhance the backstories of two of its main characters, is a nice idea, which I liked a lot; executed well, it doesn’t come off as a gimmick, but as a great little bonus, which adds to the book. Hats off to him for crafting (and crafting well) a promising and engaging series, and a strong start with this instalment. If you like action thrillers with a slightly futuristic, Crichton-esque twist, I strongly recommend Dwayne Gill.

    I am always on the lookout for new authors and it takes a well crafted, well-written story to catch my attention. I had picked up a free copy of Cane's Detour and Daniel's Darkness and my interest was piqued with these two characters so when the chance came for an advanced copy of Written by Blood, I took it. When I picked it up, the blurbs had stated that the two prequels be read prior. Cane's Detour definitely yes, but I feel Daniel's Darkness can be read before or after as the connection does I am always on the lookout for new authors and it takes a well crafted, well-written story to catch my attention. I had picked up a free copy of Cane's Detour and Daniel's Darkness and my interest was piqued with these two characters so when the chance came for an advanced copy of Written by Blood, I took it. When I picked it up, the blurbs had stated that the two prequels be read prior. Cane's Detour definitely yes, but I feel Daniel's Darkness can be read before or after as the connection doesn't occur until the two-thirds into Blood. It was spelling mistake free, which is always a plus as once I see one of these, I get pulled out of the story and can't really enjoy it. Cane is not as bad-ass as I expected given the teasers in Detour but he's still a hard character and a ruthless one when you cross him. I have no idea if the science in the story is accurate or even plausible, but I like that the book wasn't too bogged down by technical jargon that the reader gets lost. There are also a number of flashback scenes that seemed to spring out of nowhere and from placement perspective, didn't seem to quite fit in at the point in the story in which they appear. I am, personally, not a fan of flashback sequences and I feel that the situation and outcomes would have been just as effective if they came out as part of the story and discovery by the characters as they go on this wild journey together. There wasn't a lot of mystery besides Marcene. The bad guys are clearly defined and identified early and motive can be extrapolated by what they do say. I do find it a bit implausible that a guy like Cane would take Marcene at her word. He was a little too trusting, especially when he's defined as someone who doesn't trust easily and ensures all his I's are dotted and T's crossed. Everyone was a little too accepting of this mysterious woman. The book to me, felt a little bit light and a few more pages would have helped to flesh out the characters a bit more. I definitely will be keeping an eye out for part two as I want to know who this woman is and I've become invested in Cane. The others not so much.

This superior thriller picks you up straight away and drags you along. We meet Cane checking in on Kristy against his instincts he has maintained a connection with the young woman and her mother after the events five years previously and in his own way enjoys the connection made. After one of these visits he finds maybe he hasn't been as careful as he thought and as a mysterious Marcene through ths quaint medium of a tape recorder gives him a mission to save a young lady with the promise of answers to his past as an incentive.... thus begins a story that sees Cane and his tech partner Lynks, move from quest to quest leading up to the planned jail break of Daniel last seen in Daniel's Darkness and beyond. Set slightly in the future this all action has a slight Koontz feel to it. Where this book wins out is the easy hand style of writing from the author, with no typos to ruin the flow his story telling has you loving the good characters (even ones as hard as Cane) and disliking some well described bad guys, not to say that the easy hand style let's you down in regard of action as there are some wonderfully bone crunching action set pieces and the pacing is smooth and consistent. All the characters have their moments in the sun and are well fleshed out....with me looking forward to seeing more of both Calvin and Lynks working together and of course my favourites the eponymous agents Hart and Barkley. If you are looking for an exceptional thriller that both delivers and offers so much more to come, then this is the read for you. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, five stars are not enough. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Part thriller, part sci-fi, this futuristic novel, Written By Blood, Part One: Conviction, by Dwayne Gill, will hold your attention from beginning to end. Gill knows how to weave a compelling, suspenseful tale, and make you wonder if some of the somewhat sci-fi components of the story could ever come to be. Set in 2023 through 2028, it is a very different world from the one we know today. Guns as we know them are all but gone, replaced by E-guns that will fire only by the person whose fingerprint Part thriller, part sci-fi, this futuristic novel, Written By Blood, Part One: Conviction, by Dwayne Gill, will hold your attention from beginning to end. Gill knows how to weave a compelling, suspenseful tale, and make you wonder if some of the somewhat sci-fi components of the story could ever come to be. Set in 2023 through 2028, it is a very different world from the one we know today. Guns as we know them are all but gone, replaced by E-guns that will fire only by the person whose fingerprints match the gun’s registered owner. Cars are almost all driverless. Everything is electronic. DNA can be manipulated. The main character, Cane, and many other baby boys, were taken from their mothers at birth. They were then raised to be devoid of emotion, sympathy, or empathy, and trained to be human killing machines who would follow orders without question. Did someone tamper with their DNA? Were some kind of devices implanted in these men when they were young boys? Or were they simply brainwashed? When the unexpected experience of saving a kidnapped girl leads Cane to feel emotions he never experienced, he begins to question his superiors. As the most highly skilled assassin on the planet, Cane refuses to execute an American businessman who is cradling his child in his arms. He knows the man deserves a fair trial for his crimes, and walks away. Thus begins Cane's conviction that something evil is going on in our government; and that something is terribly wrong. The evil goes right to the top of parts of the government, and Cane decides to set things right – to see the corrupt officials  removed from power. Others of his trainee cohort have also begun to question things, and Cane recruits them to help root out those working with the Russians to create a “New America”. If you love a good thriller with a lot of action, violence, and a sci-fi slant, you will love Written By Blood, Part One: Conviction. There are two prequels to this book:  Cane’s Detour and Daniel’s Darkness. I have not read them, but I’d bet they are just as compelling. What Makes This Book Reviewer Grumpy? The usual mistakes:  consistently referring to people as “that” rather than “who”, as in “the man that….” Using “bring” and “brought” rather than “take” and “taken” (things are brought here, but are taken there). Some punctuation errors with commas and apostrophes, and misplacement of the word “only” within sentences.

    Excellent book, nearly impossible to put down!!! It may be in the sci-fi category but it is way more action, adventure, suspense, and thriller with just a tiny amount of sci-fi. Definitely recommend reading the 2 prequels before starting this book, but not reading them will not take away from the plot.

    Having read the prequels I was more than ready for this book to come out. Some great character building and I assume and hope more of their background will be available in the coming books. It kept my interest throughout and I am now ready for the next book! Why not 5 stars? Because I hope the series continues and there is only one way to go from top marks and that is down. So always aim high. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Action packed! Loved the pace, simply and well written. The action was non stop and at times hectic (that’s a good thing). Great character development all round, very surprising and greatly welcomed. Didn’t think I would cry reading this, again a good thing. Cane and Daniel, trained assassins who veer off the path chosen for them, find their own path by finding themselves and friends they didn’t think they wanted or needed...GET ON THIS BANDWAGON PEOPLE!

    This series just keeps getting better and better! I could not put this book down! Nonstop Action! I know it sounds cliche, but it is so true. The book had me in suspense. It had me laughing, cheering and gasping and so wanting more. The author throws out a little bone in each book that opens a tiny window into the history and makeup of the characters causing us to willingly hang on until the next one! Well done!
