Self destruction caused by vengeance and hate leaves you with loathing feeling of hate as you read on.These exciting stories as narrated in the Holding Fire makes one feel the characters in the book appear to reflect the actual vengeance and hate.It makes you feel as if you are sitting with them next to you.I like the great review by Adambongo as it makes your mental travel journey flow seamlessly to the end.

The cover has it all. Got me all interested when i read, "Holding fire"
I got myself wondering how fire could be held. Life is full of challenges and tough momments and we all need life skills to hold this fire in one way all another in order to be able to move on.
These skills are right in this wonderful book, "hold fire"

I am afraid I start falling in love with all of his publishing and this isn't an exception. Thanks for the review! That's quite encouraging rating you gave, I hope it will only stimulate the authors.

As a human we encounter different problems that really affects us to act and think desperately. It gives us negative feelings and emotions that lead us to think in different side of being ourselves. There are some people cannot help them selves to stay calm and focus of having a revenge, because of massive rage he feel. Nobody can live on their own, you have to find good people in your environment. Friends really helps a lot when the world try to let us down, failure, rejection etc..

Interesting. You can not hold fire and not expect to be burnt. I had thought to read this book. This review will make me read sooner.
