A plane crash in the Arizona desert. An explosion that sets the world on fire. A damning pact to hide an appalling secret. And one man bound to expose the truth. He is Solomon Creed. No one knows what he is capable of.
Not even him.
When Solomon Creed flees the burning wreckage of a plane in the Arizona desert, seconds before an explosion sets the world alight, he is acting on instinct alone. He has no memory of his past, and no idea what his future holds. Running towards a nearby town, one name fires in his mind – James Coronado. Somehow, Solomon knows he must save this man. But how do you save a man who is already dead?
I was lucky enough to win a signed hardback edition of this book on another bloggers blog. I have to say when I received it I was pretty blown away by how impressive the book looked. The cover is really striking and the edges of every book page is black which I absolutely loved and thought was a great touch. Just from the appearance alone you can tell a lot of thought and effort has been put into this book.
Simon Toyne is an author I have been hearing a lot about and I had been meaning to get round to his books at some point but obviously winning a copy bumped him right up my to read pile and I have to say that after reading Solomon Creed I will certainly be reading more of his books sooner rather than later.
What better way to start off a novel by a lone survivor walking away from a plane crash. I knew right from then that I was going to enjoy this book and I was not wrong.
Solomon Creed is a total mystery, because of the crash he can not remember anything about himself. He is also a total mystery to the people of the town where the plane has crashed and as with everyone that he came to meet, I was just as intrigued into who Solomon Creed actually is. Through the story Solomon starts to remember little bits here and there and by the end we find out exactly who he is and all I can say is OMG.
Unfortunately the town that Solomon has crashed into, the people are not as nice and friendly as you would expect from a small town. There is something going on that Solomon can’t quite put his finger on but he has a sense that he is supposed to be there and that he is there to save someone. Unfortunately he becomes a bit of a problem for some unsavoury characters and they want to know who he is and to get rid of him as soon as possible.
There is a touch of something almost super natural about this story which I loved and it made the story stand out even more from other books in this genre.
I loved Solomons character. He is very much a man of mystery and I was dying to find out more about him and I certainly was not disappointed.
Solomon Creed is packed full of action and with a combination of murder and mystery it makes for a very thrilling read. I’m hoping that this is just the start for Solomon as he is such an interesting character, especially after finding out who he actually is!
