Powerful, intense, captivating, and fascinating. All of these words come to mind after reading Seeds of Retribution, Volume One: Germination. Starting out in Chicago, in the early eighteen hundreds; I found myself lost as the author quickly drew me in with the very interesting and detailed story following the life of a Caucasian boy born and raised as a Potawatomi Indian.
An extremely well written novel that has every element that any and every reader could ever want out of a book. The historical component goes beyond catching your attention, and goes straight to leaving you wanting more. As I read through the first chapter or two, I felt as if I was there living in the harsh conditions of those early days.
After reading a little bit further the brutality of the lives of the Potawatomi Indians was beyond evident and the author had me; hook, line, and sinker. At this point, I couldn't stop reading and every time I did stop I thought to myself, I wonder what will happen next.
The story follows the main character as he leaves his home travelling through many towns and cities; leaving his roots behind to live as a white man.
Meeting an array of different characters; some kind and compassionate, others sinister and cruel.
However, the plot twists and then turns evolving into a completely different monster!!! In a time when violence was prevalent in many aspects of life. The writer takes you on an intense journey into the mind of a serial killer. Giving the reader a sense of why and how and what could possibly turn a person into a cold hearted killer!!!!.
The author gives you an intriguing perspective of the killer from the first murder to multiple other murders showing the intent as well as the beginning to the culprit's modus operandi. I'm positive there is more insight into the serial killer's mind, so I can't wait for the next installment of Seeds of Retribution.
