'She pulled the trigger; the hammer fell. The Magnum exploded for the second time on the cliff top, and the last round in the chamber was fired. It was just like she had pictured in her head. The massive bullet punched a fist-sized hole in El's chest, right where his heart had been a millisecond before. His eyes grew wide and he released his grip on Ros. He fell backward slowly over the cliff. Rachel and the dog walked tentatively to edge and looked down. El's body was lying smashed and broken on the rocks below. Even from a hundred feet up they could see his blood staining the wet rocks around him. Waves crashed in and their foam was made pink.' Rachel Golden was having a bad day. She was in jail on the Altworld, she had shot her math teacher (it's okay, he was going to shoot her first), she'd been kicked by a unicorn, and on top of everything else she'd lost her name tag. And just five days before she'd been sitting in class... As a trainee Hero, Rachel's mission was simple: Follow the unicorns. Unfortunately these turned out not to be the gleaming white storybook ones (which she'd imagined riding through the forest in slow motion) but shaggy feral horses with rhino horns. In the Altworld she discovers some shocking secrets about her late father and where she inherited her Hero genes from. As well as her best friend and Safeguarder Kel, she also teams up with a black Labrador called Ros and a disgusting little creature called Assorted Colors (don't ask). As the Hero party travels further into the Altworld, things become dangerous as they are pursued by the evil Overlords, a mysterious villain known only as 'El', and some human/animal hybrid monsters. To make things worse there is a spy on the Council that is giving away their every move. To make things EVEN WORSE she might have feelings for Kel... And unfortunately, the Overlords' designs on her own planet are causing a rift in the fabric of space-time. Her world begins to literally fall apart as she struggles to find out the truth about the Retriever of Sin. It could mean saving her dad from death; it could also mean the destruction of her world. Rachel Golden and the Retriever of Sin has humor, excitement, danger, romance and betrayal. Plus some pretty bitching fight scenes. And unicorns. And a talking dog. Just buy it already. Praise for the author: '*****' 'Really loved this book. Never read this writer before but can't wait to see what else he has to offer.' 'This is a great thriller that keeps you guessing until the last page. [His] multifaceted novel is a wonderful debut with just the right kind of plot twists that keep you turning pages. Jackson is an author to watch, I look forward to his next offering.' 'Exciting... couldn't put it down!'-Amazon.com '*****'-Barnes and Noble '*****' 'This was a good read. Kept the suspense going all the way through the book. Very well written... I will read other books by this author!'-Goodreads.com
