The String by Caleb Breakey

The String, by Caleb Breakey, is book one in the Deadly Games series and is a debut novel from this author. While geared to adults, it is reminiscent of The Hunger Games and other YA fiction. It is intense and captivating. I was pulled in from the first page and it kept my attention. I look forward to more from this author who has obviously studied the craft of writing and has worked hard to get his words in print. Very well-written and engaging. 

About the book: 

Welcome to the String. 
Let's go over the ground rules.

Rule #1: Participation is mandatory.

Rule #2: If anyone refuses to play, all threats will come to pass.

Since this is my game, allow me to introduce myself. I am the conductor. Just as musicians in a symphony must follow the conductor’s direction, the selected students and staff of Trenton University must submit to my commands . . . or risk massive chaos and deadly consequences. Even that pesky university cop, Markus Haas, who thinks he’ll find a way out of the impossible dilemma in which I’ve trapped him. Oh, the surprises I have for him.

Ready to play?

About the author:

Caleb Breakey and his wife spent their wedding money on 52 books about writing fiction. Then, for years, he spent his days off penning stories for 16 hours straight. He loves fiction because they teach without a lecture, inspire without a speech, and entertain without any props.

Along with being an ECPA Award finalist and a winner of the prestigious Genesis Contest for fiction writers, Caleb is also the Founder of Sermon To Book and Speak It To Book, the premier ghostwriting agencies for faith-filled thought leaders.

Caleb writes in the beautiful Pacific Northwest alongside his wife, Brittney, and enjoys visits from two mischievous mini huskies and a smiley Shiba Inu.
