His characters are extremely well rounded, with Kerry slowly building nuances into their personalities, giving the reader an opportunity to really know and care about them. That’s something few writers are able to fully accomplish, yet Kerry Donovan has managed that task seamlessly. ‘The Transition of Johnny Swift” is a terrific read, and I can’t wait for the sequel.

There has been a proliferation of novels spawned by Jack Reacher, many of which are long on killings per page and short on writing skills. Ryan Kaine: On the Defensive does not meet either of the above criteria. It is a superb story crafted by a terrific writer.

I have been with Ryan from the very beginning and I think this is the best one yet….except maybe the original. Seeing Ryan with his righteous anger at full throttle was wonderful. He is the very best kind of hero: he is utterly ruthless when he needs to be but he has a heart and compassion that he can never completely hide.

It amazes me how this author creates such a complex plot with seeming ease. There are so many twists and turns in this story that it had me gasping out loud. Kerry J Donovan has become one of my favorite authors.

Ryan Kaine is back, still on the run but showing a softer side after all the death and destruction in Ryan Kaine: On The Run. The characters are well described and the search and rescue team at Lodge Farm, particularly Iona, Gregor, and Drew are finely drawn in description. The tense relationship between Sergeant Townes and Buffalo Bill Cody is well crafted and the twist at the end is a surprise.

When I read that this book would remind me of Die Hard I knew I just had to read it. Whoever wrote that was correct! There are twists and turns and a hero who gets more beat up (but survives it all). He was conned into killing a whole lot of people without his knowledge–and he was going to get revenge on the people responsible! This could and probably should be made into an action thriller in my opinion!

On the Rocks is another Donovan winner. Plenty of action, adventure, characters you care about and ones you REALLY love to hate. This book is like every other Donovan novel I have read in that it is well-written, never gets dull or boring, the story smoothly flows from beginning to a terrific ending and leaves you anticipating the next one.

It’s 2 am, I couldn’t stop reading it. The writing has a rhythm that moves and flows with Ryan Kaine’s thoughts and action. Sometimes a pause for a breather then it’s fast paced action. Highly recommend. I have found a new author and can’t wait to read more.

There is continuity and flow between the books, which makes the reader feel they have read one long, enjoyable saga, instead of three separate books. But be warned; when you get to Ellis Flynn, try not to have anything else to do in your life (like sleep or eat) because you are not going to want to stop until you finish. The hallmark of a true winner in my estimation.
