With five chapters live on the website, and a sixth on its way, the action and suspense is really heating up, and soon readers will have a clearer understanding of why this a GANGSTER FANTASY and not just your typical thriller. For those of you who don’t know, this is about three characters:

Joe – a cop given the chance to investigate the ruthless mob that plagues his hometown.

Ray – a new grunt in the gang, who’s trying to climb his way up the ranks.

Frank – a.k.a. The Boss. He has a secret weapon that keep him on the throne and the rest of Carrada on its hands and knees.

On Reading

We also launched ‘On Reading’ where the Sentient Ink authors review what they have been reading. A popular segment, both Patrick Rothfuss and Mark Lawrence gave their approval of our reviews. We are still waiting to hear from JRR Tolkien though.
