“Parched holds several surprises; not the least of which is its ultimate direction. Readers used to the typical linear progression of many apocalyptic reads will find something unique and special in Parched: highly recommended for any who want a powerful thriller with a strong environmental message.”Midwest Book Review—Diane Donovan, Editor/Senior Reviewer.
“There is a constant urgency and energy in the writing that makes it difficult to put down. The most powerful parts of this story are when the lines of morality begin to blur in the family’s quest for survival. This resilient family always seems to be running away from something, narrowly escaping danger, and eking by to survive – it was exhausting just reading about their life on the run!” Self-Publishing Review, 4 Stars
“A gripping thriller that vividly and creatively brings the potential terrors of climate change to life, Parchedis an engaging and immensely believable novel that captivated me with every twist and turn of its plot.” Jacky Donovan, author of Amazon bestseller Simon Ships Out: How One Brave, Stray Cat Became a Worldwide Hero.
“First of Andrew’s books that I’ve read (so far). Loved the story! Had me on the edge of my seat for most of it. Can’t wait for Part Two!” Debra Ann Galvan.
“I thoroughly enjoyed this story about one family’s journey through a world that we would not comprehend in order to survive. Their strength, love for one another, and their desire to make it in a world where resources that we take for granted every day are more valuable than hitting Fort Knox, is inspiring. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a riveting story to capture and hold their attention.” Diane Day.
“Haunting you feel like you’re right there…realistic… I cannot wait for the second book to come out. Can’t get it out of my mind how this author weaves a story that sticks with you, you feel the grit you hear the sounds, you feel the heat you feel that the dehydration you feel the hopelessness, the stench…pretty much the author immerses you into this story he brings you into this world it’s hard to shake. This is a difficult review to write – it’s not really the normal end of the world type of book, it’s definitely a new twist for this type of Science Fiction. Give this book a try for once it is not zombies or the same normal end of the world type scenarios this is a different twist it is worth a read.” Nora A
