The Homelanders

Posted on: July 12, 2011

Andrew Klavan’s action and adventure series “The Homelanders” may well be the next publishing sensation – I just completed the last book in this series titled “The Final Hour”.

Charlie West, the teenager hero of all “The Homelanders” novels (The last thing I remember, The Long way home, The truth of the matter and now finally, The final hour) is caught in the middle of a murder / terrorist attack / many other unfortunate things. This series captures the various problems he goes thro’ because of this and how he emerges victorious. Written in a juvenile fiction format, all these four novels are in un-putdown-able category, giving you a thriller-movie-screenplay-ish reading experience.

I started reading Andrew Klavan’s novels based on a friend’s recommendation in twitter. First it looked like a silly exercise, but pretty soon his writing style and twists-n-turns made me a serious reader and follower of all the “Homelanders” novels.

I liked this fourth book better than the others, mainly because lot of loose-ends are getting connected. Happily, it gave me a feeling of completion after almost 1000 pages of reading. (Of course, I will be more than happy if there is another novel in this series, But that’s another matter Winking smile)

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
