4 feather #bookreview of THE TROJAN PROJECT by Eileen Thornton


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!


Anxiously waiting for her husband to come home one evening, Sarah witnesses a strange event, a big glowing green ball of light and then a green mist rolling across the valley below her home. In the morning, when her husband still hasn’t returned, Sarah heads down to the valley searching for her husband. What she finds is horrific and puts her on the run for her life. Where is her husband? Who is behind the event?
        As stated in some prior reviews, the plot is pretty thin. There are no surprises or plot twists. But because of the suspenseful writing and drama, I found the story engaging enough that I was drawn along until the end. The best part was in the cave with Pete and Josh while they tried to find their way out by following the sheep.
And with the mixture of an abundance of rich characters throughout the story, it kept the reading fresh. We all know someone who talks endlessly about nothing.  Sigh!!  I thought the end was fitting with Colin the lorry driver. He, who never has an adventure.
        It’s also terrifying to think there might be a country with this type of weapon in their arsenal. Shudder!!
        And here is what takes away from the story.  There’s a mannerism that Thornton uses excessively as a sign of frustration or anger. It became annoying. I can see one person doing it as a habit, but not every character. It’s the slamming of fists or hands on desks, tables and steering wheels. I also found a handful of proofreading errors.
        I recommend this book for a suspenseful romp through the English countryside and parts of London. I give my 4 feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
