    I put the book down after the first few pages and told my husband I wasn't sure I could read it...heartbreaking and scary. Next day I realized I had to know where it went. NOW I have to get the series, lol. More emotional yanking, ACTION, laughter, intrigue...read it straight through that time and then I re-read it. (Seriously!) Thank you, John, for bringing Donovan Creed to life! (Just don't forget Mr. Love? ) ~Salem Williams, Ancient Arbor http://SalemWilliams.wordpress.com

    From the very first chapter I was hooked! John Locke writes so you "see" the action, the interactions, the characters and they (the characters) are WONDERFUL! I admit to being a little old-fashioned, thus easily shocked, but he did it in such a way I had tears rolling down my face with laughter. While I am sitting here waiting on the third book in this series (hurry!) I miss Emmett Love, Shrug and "the girls" (a wagonload of brothel babes). Even if your parents bored you to tears with Gunsmoke and The Ponderosa as a kid, (mine did), I promise you are NOT going to be bored with Follow the Stone. Clever enough my techno-geek husband and sons asked me to read aloud so they could hear! ~Salem Williams, Ancient Arbor http://salemwilliams.wordpress.com
