Chrome Mountain is written by Ben Schneider. It is printed by Outskirts Press, Inc in 2018. The book is composed of 335 pages including the title page, copyright page, and dedication page. It has 52 chapters which can be read into 3-5 hours depending upon your interest and reading speed.
The story starts with Sonya Mccall, former lover of Levi North, the leader of a gang named Screamon Demons. Sonya is a former member of the gang mentioned. She left the gang because she found herself wanting to change her way of life. She escaped with $70,000 and stolen plate number of Levi. She was hunted by the cronies of Levi but she found ways to get them off her back. She was off the radar of the gang for three years. However, after the said period, they found her whereabouts. The will to survive and the will to live a normal life led Sonya to Trey Radisson, an inventor who is hunted by the Chrome Falcon. He is being hunted because of his recent invention called VV1. They helped one another to escape their pursuers. Would they escape from their pursuers and live a normal life?
The description of the actions of the characters are well written and enjoyable to read.
The back story of the main characters is well-explained that the reader can easily cope with the decisions made by the characters in the story. The story is fast-paced then normal-paced.
The author seems to have an issue with Filipino women that the way the Filipino character described represents the whole population of Filipino women. This can be considered as an insult. The author should understand that if one person is evil, it does not mean that all people from where he or she came from are evil. The author should describe the Filipino character in his or her own personality. The author should be careful in describing different races. Also, he seems to be confused with the physical traits of Filipino people to other race in Asia. He should had at least researched on this matter.
It is also noticeable that he hates that the media can twist the facts of the news but that is quite understandable because the media can only draw conclusions based on what is seen on the footage or picture.
This is just my opinion, but I think the title is not interesting enough to capture the eyes of the readers. The author should have chosen a very interesting title since the book is actually interesting. This can increase the sales of the book.
I would recommend this book to people who are fond of action filled storyline. I would rate this book 3 out of 4 stars only because of two reasons. First, the negative description in some races is something I despise and secondly, it lacks the depth on the story.
