Flashback Review

It seems like forever since I have posted anything new.  I hoped life would slow down a bit once the kids started school, but if anything it seems things have sped up. 

I finally finished Flashback by Maria Hammarblad,  but don’t let the time it took me diminish the book in anyway.   As I said, life has been chaos since the move.    That being said, here is my review for Flashback and my strong encouragement to read anything and everything written by Hammarblad. 
Happy reading my friends!
Flashback by Maria Hammarblad is another exciting adventure.  I applaud Hammarblad’s effort at giving the reader an up close look at “Posttraumatic Stress Disorder” and how devastating it can be, not only for the victim, but also for anyone close to them.
The story of Steve and Anna begins as an accidental meeting which turns into an unlikely love affair.  The story plods on with drunken episodes and bad dreams, but just when you think the tale has met its calm, a thrilling adventure begins in a shocking twist.
I have to say this was not my favorite Hammarblad book, as I am extremely fond of her Goddess books and Embarkment series, and let’s just face it Hammarblad is Science-Fiction GOLD!  However, this story is certainly worth reading.   As an author, I find myself second guessing my own talent every time I read anything written by Maria Hammarblad.  Her ability to draw you into character emotion is paralleled by no other and her flawless style paints a scene so clearly you can feel it. 
I encourage you to check out Flashback or any of Maria Hammarblad’s publications.  If you love action, romance and excitement, you won’t be disappointed.  I can almost bet you will become a HUGE fan, just as I am.
