A tightly focused and exciting second installment of a thriller series
I am seriously on a roll here, and it almost has me worried … LOL … when is the Sword of Damocles going to fall?
But, Montagnard just received a fantastic review from Kirkus Reviews, and I am feeling quite blessed. Both Serpents Underfoot and Montagnard have received fabulous reviews from Kirkus … the mother of all book reviews!
Kirkus does have a reputation for being brutally honest, and just to verify this for my self, I perused a few other reviews on their site and saw the evidence of that. I guess I must be doing something right.
Here is a snippet from the review:
Like the series’ first installment, Gilbert’s enjoyable sequel offers some rousing subplots …
But this novel concentrates on fewer characters, such as the returning players Curtis, Mai, and Ajax.
JD’s story also evolves as the well-established hero suffers more than one loss.Kirkus Reviews

On a slightly different note …
I would like to “second” a message a fellow author … the author of Leora’s Letters, Joy Neal Kidney, posted on Instagram a short time ago. Reviews are crucial to authors trying to establish themselves and build a reader base. And, by the way, Leora’s Letters is a terrific read! You will want to check it out. I highly recommend it.
Twenty reviews will help get the ball rolling. Another milestone is the 50 to 70 review mark. And, even if you did not purchase a book from Amazon, you can still review it there as long as you have an Amazon account.
Here is Joy’s Instagram post … I don’t think she’ll mind if I share it here.
I would appreciate it as well!
And, if you do love a good action-adventure story, check out the novel, Montagnard, by award-winning author, D.C. Gilbert; and don’t forget to take a minute to leave an honest review!
