Cry of the Fallen Book Tour: Review of Cry of the Fallen (The Black Chronicles #1) by Joel M. Andre

                                   Today we have author Joel M. Andre. His book is touring and today I'm a host.  His book, the first in a series was a really enjoyable read, I can say.  See the review of  Cry of the Fallen(The Black Chronicles #1) below.                           
All around her Lauren Bruni is faced with destruction. Her marriage has ended, and her professional life is at the breaking point. For Lauren, this is only the beginning of her pain.

In the small town of Cottonwood, AZ everything seems to be headed in the same direction. A serial killer is on the loose, and his trail of victims holds no connection. His rampage escalates and becomes far more brutal with each murder he commits.
As Lauren attempts to prevent her own life from collapsing down around her she must stop a killer with supernatural strength. But there is something far more sinister in the works than she could ever imagine. In the end it is up to Lauren to make the ultimate sacrifice to save a community from the purest form of evil.

                                   About Cry of the Fallen 
Someone with black cowboy boots and a vengeful nature is murdering tons of people in a town in Arizona. Detective Lauren Bruni tries to investigate who can be behind the murders. Lauren is a woman who has lost something dear to her yet finds the courage to still be an investigator each day knowing her work keeps her away from them. Lauren also realizes she may be a player in the murderer's dance. Containing an enticing almost poetic writing style kept me closely reading each page, really interesting. A mystery with the supernatural makes it a very enthralling read overall. Looking forward to Book 2 in The Black Chronicles. 
                                       Overall: Touching read
                        Genre: Horror, Suspense, Paranormal

                                                                                            About the Author 
 Joel M. Andre was born January 13, 1981. At a young age he was fascinated with the written word. It was at fourteen that Poe blew his mind, and Andre began to dabble with darker poetry.

Between the years of 1999 and 2007 Joel was featured in various poetry anthologies and publications. In 2008 he released his first collection,Pray the Rain Never Ends.

Knowing there was something deeper and darker inside of his soul, Joel decided to take a stab at commercialism. Releasing the dark tongue in cheek, A Death at the North Pole, created a dark world among the death of Kris Kringle. Ultimately providing a tale of redemption.

October of 2008 saw Joel release his second book, Kill 4 Me. A tale in which a woman is haunted by a vengeful spirit through text messages and instant messaging.

Taking some time off and doing a lot of soul searching, Joel took things in a new direction and dabbled in the Fantasy Genre with, The Pentacle of Light. The tale dealing with five major races battling for control of Earth, and the acceptance of their God.

Finally, after missing his detective Lauren Bruni, he released the book The Return in October 2009, this time moving the action from the North Pole and placing it in the small Arizona community he was raised in.
Andre’s latest book is The Black Chronicles: Cry of the Fallen about a dead man who seeks revenge on the woman that tormented him in peaceful Northern Arizona.
Currently, he resides in Chandler, AZ.

Great review!

I found you through Book Blogs and signed up to follow you. When you have a chance- please stop by the blog for my middle grade novel that I am hoping to get published.

Take care-
Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out why that happens sometimes and I can't fix it. :)
