Author Michael Libling Blurbs THE SHADOW OF WAR by TSJ!
… and it’s great!
The great Canadian writer, whom I’ve referred to as a “Canadian Treasure” and the author of Hollywood North: A Novel in Six Reels, has read The Shadow of War and provided a blurb.
Michael Libling writes Speculative Fiction and his first book blew me away. It reminded me of Stand by Me, and the ending features one of those big reveals that the reader doesn’t even see coming. It is truly great, and the fact that he wrote a blurb for The Shadow of War is beyond flattering. Here it is:
“…a terrific read! Smart, thrilling, intriguingly plotted and, like all previous entries in Johnston’s ‘Rise of Oceania’ series, A-level entertainment. And that opening chapter — WOW! Page-turner is an understatement.”
— Michael Libling, author of Hollywood North: A Novel in Six Reels and The Serial Killer’s Son Takes A Wife
A big THANK YOU to Mr. Libling! The Shadow of War is coming very, very soon!
— Timothy S. Johnston
