This is on my "to read" list.
Nourished By That Which Consumes, by Joseph Ephraim.
This was one of those "happy accidents" that I occasionally have. The author, Joseph Ephraim, sent me a tweet about checking out the prologue of his book here: sample prologue.
So wonder of wonders, my curiosity piqued, I clicked the link and read the first few pages. It shows a definite potential to be something quite fantastic.
This gripping tale takes place in Singapore, the sheer desperation and hopeless plight of the main character, Yu-Lin, and her gambling addicted father, sets a sorrowful scene of the tribulations and nightmares ahead.
That's just from the prologue.
Plus, at $2.99 on Amazon.com for the digital copy, it's hard to pass up. I'll keep everyone posted on another review after I read the book.
