Book Review-The Trojan Project-Eileen Thornton

Tuesday, April 7, 2015


This novel will have you shivering throughout, what a roller coaster ride! This novel kept me riveted from page 1 until the end. Chemical warfare has been outlawed in most countries (at least I hope it has) but do governments ever really follow the law? And what happens when a madman decides he is going to unleash it on a part of the countryside knowing there is no antidote just so he can marry the woman he thinks should have been his. The government, the Prime Minister of England realizes that this mishap must be hidden from the public and all who were alive but saw what happened must not live to tell the tale. No one but a select few know why Sarah, her children and the police officer who helped her escape are being chased--nor why Pete and his ranch hand are being threatened. Will they make it to Sarah's parents house in London? Will the truth ultimately be revealed? All I know (or admittedly am willing to tell you since you know I won't give up a story that easily) is if you ever see a bright green object in the sky and then a mist--RUN like you've never run before!!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

It's a peaceful night for Sarah and her family, until a strange light rises from behind the Cheviot Hills and a green mist descends across the valley. Its swirling tendrils, seeming to bear a life of their own as they snake across the land, can only be an omen of something sinister and evil.

When her husband fails to return from work, she and her children set out to search for him. A terrifying discovery awaits her in the valley below her home and before long, they find themselves caught up in a desperate search not only for her husband Pete, but also for the meaning of the green light. Pursued by the military, she slowly begins to realize her life, and the lives of those she loves, are in mortal danger.

The Trojan Project takes you into a nightmare world where no one is quite what they seem, and trust becomes a word with little meaning. Beware the green light in the sky; you never know what it hides!

About the Author: (from Amazon)


Eileen Thornton lives in Kelso in the Scottish Borders. Though she only began writing in 2001, many of her short stories and article have appeared in several national magazines in the UK. But then she felt the urge to move on to writing something more gritty.

Her first novel, The Trojan Project, an action thriller, was published in 2008. "While writing it, I felt I was on the ride of my life. I tried to grab everyone's attention from the very start and give them a rollercoaster read."

Since then Eileen has concentrated on women's fiction. Divorcees.Biz, a novel of fun and romance, was published in 2012 with Only Twelve Days, a heart-warming romance, following in November 2013.

She is currently working on a sequel to Divorcees.Biz, entitled: I Haven't a Clue!
