Blog Tour - Children of Paranoia by Trevor Shane

First of all, I want to thank Crazy Book Tours for giving me this opportunity to take part in such a wonderful book tour. This is my first book tour, so forgive me for any mistakes I might make.

Children of Paranoia by Trevor Shane

all wars have rules
rule #1: no killing innocent bystanders
rule #2: no killing anyone under the age of eighteen
break the rules, become the target 

Since the age of eighteen, Joseph has been assassinating people on behalf of a cause that he believes in but doesn’t fully understand. The War is ageless, hidden in the shadows, governed by a rigid set of rules, and fought by two distinct sides — one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Soldiers in the War hide in plain sight, their deeds disguised as accidents or random acts of violence amidst an unsuspecting population ignorant of the brutality that is always inches away.

Killing people is the only life Joseph has ever known, and he’s one of the best at it. But when a job goes wrong and he’s sent away to complete a punishingly dangerous assignment, Joseph meets a girl named Maria, and for the first time in his life his singleminded, bloody purpose fades away.

Before Maria, Joseph’s only responsibility was dealing death to the anonymous targets fingered by his superiors. Now he must run from the people who have fought by his side to save what he loves most in this world. As Children of Paranoia reaches its heart-in-throat climax, Joseph will learn that only one rule remains immutable: the only thing more dangerous than fighting the war. . .is leaving it.

Thoughts on Children of Paranoia

I'm going to be honest here, I haven't actually finished reading the novel yet...but I know I am going to. I am more than 100 pages into it and it's so hard to put down, and if it wasn't for work, school, and a teenage son, I would surely have finished this days ago. It has an amazingly intense flow to the writing that grips your heart and squeezes it slowly over multiple pages, dragging you through the emotions of the main character, Joe, as he hunts his prey as targeted by the higher ups of "The War". At the end of one specific chapter I was literally gasping for breath as I found myself holding my breath as I waited to see what would happen. I'm not even done reading yet and I know this is going to be good, and I know everyone must rush out and buy this book now.

I will have a full review up in the near future.

Also look for a special post from the author himself on the blog here later this week about why he wrote this book.
