Leviathan - L A Maldonado

(A Schwartz Review)

Something was indeed off about this whole situation. The priestess was hiding something. He was sure of it. Did she know what happened here, if indeed something did? And how much could he push her?

This is a race against time book that will leave you on the edge of your seat page after page, rated at FOUR STARS.

Schwartz Synopsis

The world as we know it is in danger and only the great can save us. Hidden among us humans is a far more superior race of legends; magicians, vampires, shifters, shamans, and more. When the shamans have an unusual vision, the race against evil begins and only one man is brave enough to embark on this terrifying mission. Will he stop the Leviathan’s from escaping their God made prison? Or will the evil twists consume us all?

Schwartz Thoughts

This is the second novel that I have read from this author and again, I loved it. The beginning of his novel has a punch that pulls in the reader, and Maldonado has a gift of hooking his readers at the end of each chapter, making you unable to put the book down.

His characters are really well written, believable, and loveable. The main character, Cole, is a magician on a race against time for the good of all. And this book just keeps you guessing until the very last pages. It took my emotions on a few rides. I wouldn’t say I was brought to tears, but my heart beat a little harder at a few parts.

The conflicts were great. Maldonado’s detailing abilities are superb. The development of the characters was spot on. There was even a small romance tucked in all this chaotic plot. And to be honest, if you can successfully tuck in a romance in a horror filled battle against evil, well that is saying something.

All in all, it was a great read.

The Recommendation

Horror readers, action readers, and supernatural/paranormal readers would enjoy this page turner.

About the Author

L.A. MALDONADO was born and raised in Pompano Beach, Florida. At the age of 17, he moved to West Texas for the next 16 years. In 2010 he thought it would be a good idea to head back to his roots in home state.

Maldonado now lives in Lehigh Acres, Florida, with his small family and two dogs, Esme and Sammy. He's a fan of most things geeky (think: Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Once Upon A Time, The Walking Dead, all kind of books like Beautiful Creatures, The Vampire Chronicles, Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games, Fear Street, Harry Potter...). He has been in love with books since he was given his first novel on his 8th birthday called "I Know What You Did Last Summer" by Lois Duncan, way before Hollywood ever thought of making a Blockbuster movie out of it.

Everyone who knew him in school says that he is caring, giving, and the brave one out of the group of friends. Every time you see Maldonado, he always has a book in his hand reading. While he was in high school he wrote poems and short stories and had a number of them published in the school newspaper.
