Blog Tour and Review: Sick To Death
Release Date: September 3, 2016
Publisher: White Rock Press
Genre: Thriller/Suspense/Dark Humor
When Gage Adder finds out he has inoperable pancreatic cancer, things really start to look up for him. He leaves his soul-crushing job, joins a nice terminal illness support group, and takes up an exciting new hobby: Beating the hell out of bad guys.
Gage’s support group friends Jenna and Ellison don’t approve of his vigilante activities. Jenna says fighting never solves anything. Poison, on the other hand… When the three decide to team up and hit the streets, suddenly no rapist, pedophile or other odious criminal in the city is safe.
They are the sickest of superheroes. Their superpower is nothing left to lose. But what happens when one of them takes this power too far and puts at risk the lives of hundreds of innocent people? Where does one draw the line when dying to kill?
I received this book to give an honest review.
You know I liked this book and the way it went with Gage and his friends becoming vigilantes.
For me Gage really connected as a character and I think it is because of him having the pancreatic cancer and my husband having his pancreas acting crazy it hits home that you can get that kind of cancer. Which I pray never happens to my husband. But enough about that.
We how after an incident with Gage and his friend Ellison makes him feel alive and a bit better so could he use the fact that he is dying of a deadly disease to the benefit of helping others? Well that is what Gage and two of his friends do which honestly I think wouldn't be bad because they are only doing to do the people who are literally deserving of it. Such as sex offenders, drug dealers, rapists and so forth so it isn't just random citizens. Along with some good things happen to random strangers. Now it starts off as beatings but then when Jenna decides to up it then it starts to become a bit more serious especially if they were to ever be caught. We see how it all affects Gage and you can't help but wonder will he ever get better or is he forever doomed to die? I have to say though I liked Gage and that he was the main focus in this book I really liked Sasha who plays a brief roll in the story. She just was mysterious yet deadly. I liked that.
I felt the author did a good job with details and making us understand the character in a way that you can seem to agree with what he is doing.
I can say the way the ending came about I was surprised on the way the author went. I can understand why Gage did what he did.
