Review Brittany Dalton, Author’s Den: Author Robert J Saniscalchi brings us fictional tale, Freedom’s Light, in a very real, honest exploration of good and evil as related to the harrowing events of 9/11–and the aftermath left in its wake.
Saniscalchi’s story introduces us to his protagonist, Rob, embarking on a family hunting expedition within the quiet wilderness of New York State. The peaceful outing filled with brotherly bonding and banter is short-lived, however, as the characters are soon thrown into the horror of the 9/11 attacks and a subsequent military operation. This is all unfortunately foreshadowed by Rob’s warnings, who understands the fragility of freedom and how it must be protected (or the light will be extinguished). A soldier and patriot, Rob becomes deeply entrenched within an elite team called Light Force. The object of the military operation: To identify the source (a terrorist base in Afghanistan) of another possible attack on US soil, and stop it in its tracks.
The characters are portrayed in a realistic and relatable manner, and the action is well depicted as the reader is soon caught up in the emotion and intensity. Although I don’t usually follow war books, shows, and movies, I particularly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who does enjoy the genre. Saniscalchi clearly demonstrates a thorough knowledge of his subject matter, and his story does not disappoint. Everyone I know was in some way impacted by the events of 9/11, and I can still recall the exact moments in which I came to learn about what had happened. This is a story of bravery and pays tribute to the men and women who selflessly fought to protect the United States from terrorism–and continue to do so today.
“This is an amazing book; it caught my attention from the very first page. It’s about 9 11 and the terrorist that attacked the twin towers and the army that went to battle against them. While I was reading this book a song popped into my head and it is where were you when the world stopped turning by Allen Jackson. That song describes parts of this book. It is well written and I loved the main character. I never knew exactly what happens that day but mow I have more knowledge of what happened. I will recommend this book to my friends and family.”
Review by Pattimari, Therapist, Author, VP of PnP Authors: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Reviewed in the United States on May 16, 2019
This story begins in the mountains of Afghanistan where a group of extremists gathers to plan a shocking attack. By Chapter two, titled Bond of Brothers, which immediately brought my mind to Band of Brothers, however, as I read on the chapter took me to upstate NY. By chapter three, I was drawn into wanting to read more and more. The author, even though it is a harsh terrorizing story, the writer does have scenes that are tender and what it does is allows the reader to relax a bit from all harsh terrorizing scenes. I liked the book. I recommend it to all who like a well-written story with good descriptions.
From The Author: I am happy everyone is enjoying the story that is Freedom’s Light, thanks much.
From The Inside Flap: This story is dedicated to our Veterans and to all those that serve in the US. Military today.
