Book Review: Alternate by Ernie Fuentes

So I'm starting a new feature on my blog: Book Review Wednesdays (and the occasional Saturday--like this post). Every week, I'm going to TRY to have a new book for your reading pleasure. I may not like all the books that I read, but I will make it a point to ONLY post books that I find worth your reading time. If there's nothing good about them, I will not post. First up, a short story by author Ernie Fuentes:


An assassin must travel back in time to stop a fellow assassin from altering the past and forever changing the future. Cover: IMG_0218

My Review -- 4 Stars

Let me start off by saying that I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but I really felt moved by this one. From the first line, I could definitely feel the pain the main character was suffering as he felt the loss of his daughter. Yet he didn't wallow in it--which would have lost my interest--but immediately I was hooked by the promise of future tech. As the story went on, the author touched on the feeling of loss a number of times, but in a way that kept it present without shoving it down the reader's throat. A few of the reviewers pointed out that the ending was a total surprise, but by the second act I knew exactly what was going to happen. There were also a few grammatical/punctuation errors throughout, but the story held my attention enough that I hardly noticed them. That being said, I didn't enjoy the ending any less. All in all, it was a satisfying story to read, and one that I would highly recommend.
