Cristian Mihai Reviews Serpents Underfoot!

Cristian Mihai  Reviews Serpents Underfoot …

An author, Cristian Mihai, reviews Serpents Underfoot! Thank you, Cristian, for your great review of my first novel. It is much appreciated. There were several very nice comments in his review. Here are a few excerpts:

  • Writing a good thriller is mostly about the pace you set for the story. The way all the pieces fall into place, how you build suspense, how believable are your characters, the setting. It’s not an easy job.
  • D.C. Gilbert achieves this with style. The story flows smoothly. Easy and fast to read, which is a good thing when it comes to thrillers. There’s nothing that stands in the way of the story.
  • Also, the author does a fine job of detailing the world. Put differently, he knows his stuff. And you can tell. It’s always refreshing to read a book written by someone who knows what they’re writing about.
  • So, yeah, this is a great book. Well worth the time.

I would also like to express my gratitude to those who have reviewed my book on Amazon so far. It is now sitting at 8 FIVE STAR reviews (2 for the Kindle edition and 6 for the printed editions). Serpents Underfoot is available in Kindle, paperback, and hardcover formats at Amazon.com. I hope you will give my book a read!

 

About Cristian Mihai

Cristian Mihai (born 25 December 1990) grew up in Constanta, Romania. And he’s still growing up, or at least trying to. Sometimes he writes. Sometimes he gets lucky and writes something good.  He can’t, however, draw a straight line. No matter how much he tries. Not even with a ruler. And, please, don’t ever ask him to sing. His blog can be found here!

Thanks, Martha, for the Five Star Review!

Reviews, Five Star ReviewAnother Five Star Review for Serpents Underfoot!

Thank you, Martha, for your thoughtful comments and great Five Star Review on Amazon.com. That makes 6 so far!

I continue to be surprised by the number of women who enjoy this book. I think Martha’s review shed some light on this for me.  While it is a counter-terrorism-type, military thriller … which in my mind, would appeal more to men, woven through the story are elements of love, family, morals, loyalty, politics, deceit, and justice. It is not just about war. It is also about many of the things that made this country great!

Core American Values

A strong sense of family, a belief in God ( or for some, a higher purpose), love of Country, sacrifice, and a strong sense of right and wrong. I guess these things would appeal to a broader base.  It is just pleasing to see so many different people enjoying the book.

So, My Shameless Plug

Five Star ReviewChristmas is just around the corner! I bet you have at least one reader on your gift list for which this book would make a great Christmas present!  Get them a  great book to curl up with and read on a snowy, winters day while sipping on a hot cup of tea, hot chocolate, a glass of wine, or even your favorite bourbon!

If you were to get them a copy of my book, Sophie and I would greatly appreciate it!

Work on the sequel progresses!
