Reviews THE DEAL

Reviews THE DEAL by S C Cunningham




“The premise itself is wonderful: fallen angels exacting instant karma on unsuspecting criminals – yes please! Sign me up for this deal, right now!”

“The Deal is not for the faint of heart. It shows the worst of some of the worst, but excellent writing keeps the violence in its proper perspective and keeps the reader swiping pages. The ending made me smile… and exhale, but also made me aware this wild ride is just getting started. It’s a ride I wholeheartedly recommend!”

“I loved the theme of the story and although this super team are there to bring justice for the victims, they really are no Angels the way they go about it. They dish quite a bit of revenge out themselves in the form of violence rather than forgiveness. It really is an all action story with re-caps into the former lives of The Unit, as to what deal they each made that brought them all together.”

“The Deal is completely different from anything I have ever read; it is an outstanding book that covers many issues in an ethereal but definitely punchy way.  Step out of your comfort zone and try it - you won't be disappointed.”

“Oh my... Part paranormal romance, part mystery thriller The Deal is sure to be a hit with fans of both dramas. With enough action and suspense to keep it interesting, sprinkled with steamy scenes, and topped off with a final reveal, the book was a fast read.”

“This is the first time I have read this genre before and wow, this was a lot darker book than I was expecting! Amy and her team deal with the worst of the worst, murderers, paedophiles and rapists to name a few. I really liked Amy. She’s headstrong, rebellious and a little damaged after her childhood trauma and the chemistry between her and Jack was fantastic. Another one of my favourite characters was Pyke, a computer hacker, and a bit of a sweetheart who’s mission in his afterlife was to punish drug dealing scum. There was also some tremendous villains that I guarantee will turn your stomach. A good start a series and I’m looking forward to see what happens next.”

“This is a pretty cool story with extremely serious under tones. It deals with a whole bundle of moral issues where humans seem to delight in vile practices. There is a budding love story going on too with Jack (also in the Unit) and Amy. This is going to make a very fascinating series to follow.”

“The premise really caught my attention, wouldn't it be great if there were people righting the wrongs and pursuing anyone who had committed terrible crimes. There were a few twists that I didn't see coming and these made for a really interesting story. “

“I enjoyed the way the Unit went about their work especially Amy who's character has been through so much but came out the other side determined to deal with the people who commit evil acts. Then add in Jack to the mix which creates a fiery and unpredictable combination along with a hint of romance.”

“What a surprising book, a big thumbs up from me.  I knew it was going to be something a bit different when I started it and it certainly is, amazing characters.”

“The writing is excellent, some graphic scenes, amazing characters and the story is brilliant. Leads nicely on to a sequel.”

“S C Cunningham has taken some popular beliefs and created an outstanding story.  There are so many people who believe that finding a white feather means that they have been visited by a loved one or angel.”

“The pace was really good with the momentum being kept throughout giving the reader a very dark and twisty tale!”

“I enjoyed the way the Unit went about their work especially Amy who's character has been through so much but came out the other side determined to deal with the people who commit evil acts. Then add in Jack to the mix which creates a fiery and unpredictable combination along with a hint of romance.”

“There are a lot of dark, dark things in this book. You'd expect to be told about gruesome crimes these unique angels fight. What I did not expect was the vivid detail. The story is unique and there is justice dispensed throughout.”

“Avenging angels aren’t a new story, but SC Cunningham’s The Deal delivers a fresh spin with a grittier, edgy feel.”

“Amy Fox is a great protagonist. She is far from perfect, but I love the fact she’s unapologetic… there’s a reason for her ‘flaw’ and she needs to be ‘fixed’. Whatever. Amy is still learning the craft of keeping mortals safe, but she won’t apologize for being a bit heavy-handed.”

“With so many twists and turns I did enjoy this book, I can’t wait to see what the next instalment brings, as this definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. I definitely recommend it.”

“This is a dark story with very realistic descriptions. I love The Unit and everything they stand for. Amy quickly fits in and becomes a killer woman fighting to protect the innocent. I also enjoyed the romance aspect between Jack and Amy. This is a great story and one that I recommend checking out. I’m excited to see what SC Cunningham comes up with for book 2.”

“Amy and Jack are pretty impressive characters, and the story itself flowed quickly.”

“I found the whole concept of the story immensely interesting. I would love to think that there was some supernatural police force out there dishing out karma to bullies and bad guys and watching over the most vulnerable in our society.”

 A Paranormal Thriller for those who dare to believe that there is something else out there…

At the age of four, Amy was taken…She survived.

A week later, another little girl was taken…She didn’t.

Angry that a bad man has gotten away with murder, feisty young Amy Fox makes a deal with God. When she dies, if she’s been a good girl, would God let her sit on a cloud for a while, invisible, to get bad people who slip through his fingers?

Her deal and God long forgotten, career girl Amy mysteriously dies. Her lifeless body is found beneath a London underground commuter train.

She awakens in the afterlife to discover an international network of like-minded souls who’ve all made the same deal. A sophisticated MI5-esque justice machine sits in the skies, protecting, righting wrongs, tracking criminals, and working within strict rules of play…all against time.

Each country’s Unit shares intelligence, surveillance, and resources to deactivate dangerous situations. The only evidence they leave behind during their earthly visits is a small white feather sashaying to the ground.

In a chaotic world, powerful adversaries try to close her Unit down. A complex SAS vigilante has been assigned to work as her partner, but with his jealous violent ex-girlfriend on her heels and with her own vendetta to settle, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making a deal with God was a mistake.
