Full Tilt (Rock Star Chronicles) By Creston Mapes

I received this e-book from Litfuse Publicity Group for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this e-book. The opinion expressed in this review are my own.


Book Description:

I ONCE SOWED DESTRUCTION.
Now those I love are reaping pain.
The media hype is fading and my life is no longer that of a glamorous celebrity. I'm Everett Lester, former lead singer of DeathStroke, acquitted last year of first-degree murder, now married, a Christian, and ready to take my story to the masses through music. Problem is, the turmoil of my past didn't end when the reporters left.

My wife Karen and I have received news that has rocked our world. My brother Eddie's gambling is so far out of control that the mob practically owns him. And Eddie's son, Wesley--who blames me for his brother's death--is mixed up with meth, a psychotic named Tony Badino, and a satanic voice that's urging him to take me out.

Will my Living Water tour ever hit the road? Will former fans stop hissing long enough to hear about the transforming power of Christ's love? Satan once used me for evil--only through God's power can I be used for good. The question is: will my loved ones and I be able to survive the aftermath of a rock star's life?

Everett Lester faces enemies both human and supernatural. Satan won't give up his hold on Everett, his family, or his fans without a vicious fight. God's victory is certain in the supernatural realm, but will Everett survive the earthly battle that's threatening to obliterate him?



My Thoughts:

Full Tilt by Creston Mapes is the second book in the Rock Star Chronicles and again Creston Mapes does NOT disappoint.   In Full Tilt we see familiar characters and get introduced to new ones.  Creston Mapes does a fantastic job of making sure that Full Tilt can be read on its own.  The story gives enough background so new readers don't feel lost but not so much that people who read Dark Star are bored.  Creston Mapes again uses the back and forth in the writing but this time its back and forth between characters instead of past and present.  Full Tilt is full of suspense that made it very hard to put the book down. Again, kept me guessing right up to the end.  Creston Mapes calls on his expertise with the Rock and Roll world to paint a true to life story of what that world is and how people survive in it.   From the start of the book I was hooked.  I look forward to reading Creston Mapes next Rock Star Chronicles book!
