Apolo Drakuvich [Kindle Edition] – FREE on Dec. 9th
Jefferies grabs you with this book and refuses to let go until you see it his way or no way. They say Texas is raw and gritty and this writer shows this truth in his writing. The story is mesmerizing and refuses to let go until it is finished with you.
Point of View: Jefferies is direct with the point of view and really grabs the attention of the reader.
Voice: The voice again is direct in an entertaining way but the story itself is what draws you in.
Character Development: You can not help but feel for Apolo and empathize with him throughout the book.
Plot: We all know that a corrupt system exists and we all know this HAS happened in some form or another.
Dialogue: Gritty, fast paced and delivered flawlessly.
Pacing: Imagine the open expanse of the Texas Country Side fit inside of Rhode Island and that is how the plot moves. Meaning it feels wide open but the author finds a way to fit it all in between the pages he allowed. WOW!
Setting: Again we all know this could or did happen somewhere in some fashion.
Continuity: The bow is a little skewed but the author does a nice job of making it tied and in place.

This is the story of a lost man. A lost man trying to find a way out of the dark hole his life has fallen into. You follow along with him as he tries to better himself, as he tries to find love, and as he tries to keep himself out of trouble. But in the end, was everything he did really worth it?
-Melissa Smith author of Thunderhead
A good tale. Gripping in places and emotionally freeing in some unique ways. When we find ourselves identifying with a repeat offender criminal our perspective is bound to be tweaked quite a bit.
-David Cleinman author of Toys In The Attic
Within all the madness that so epitomizes the life of Apolo, G.W. Jeffries presents a life of regret in epic proportions. Sitting in a jail cell, Apolo reflects, “One thing is for sure, I let it all slip away…so many opportunities lost.” Apolo sadly examines the events and decisions of his life, and the paths he took and should have taken. Apolo seeks peace of mind and justice, but flashbacks of his past continuously haunt him; moreover, he seems to be victimized by a corrupt justice system everywhere he goes.
As an offender, Apolo discusses pertinent issues of today’s society, where it is next to impossible for offenders to live normal lives, despite the desire to do so. Essentially, law enforcement and authorities seem to systematically destroy the offender by placing constraints on the offender such as restrictions on where to live, GPS monitoring, registering as offenders on websites, and more.
Apolo Drakuvich is a microcosm of numerous real-life issues encompassing the wild, the bizarre, and the tragic.
