Stonefly by Scott J Holliday

Stonefly (Jacob Duke, #1)Stonefly by Scott J. Holliday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once in a while you read something that is a totally new concept, this is one of those books. Jacob Duke spends a fishing trip near to where he spent his early years in a special unit. The trip turns into a six day challenge to save a young lad he meets at the fishing hole. The book would be very difficult to follow however the author runs the story in tandem with an early history of the main character, allowing you to make sense of everything. Jacob's condition is very unique having to grant wishes to avoid dire consequences. All of this makes an intriguing read holding your interest from start to finish. This book one of a series, hopefully the follow on books will maintain the momentum. Recommended.
