IXI: Rise of the King - The Book
"The story line is great...keeps you guessing as to what's next...the fate of a few characters...and when others will reappear...like Sonny...and dude who wants to buy Sal's house...and what those two have to do with one another...and I can go on and on with that. Also...little clues here and there like the numbers on Sal's car...so when you read something later on...it kinda brings you back to those things. The plot is interesting, characters are intriguing...and the imagery is on point...paints a very vivid picture. And the addition of the soundtrack is genius. Biggest thing...it holds my attention...like I'm looking for the next chapter to see what's next."

"IXI ROTK is a really entertaining combination of suspense, drama, and corporate intrigue that manages to explore age old conflicts 'between good and evil' but with a modern spin. I'm loving it so far!"

"This book is a must read for all, especially our youth. It is a well-written story of youth, dreams realized and deferred, tough decisions, and growth seasoned so well with the good word and set in a familiar place. Everything you want in a great book is here; danger, peace, excitement, consistency, love, war, compassion, redemption...I could go on and on. This book will take you through the entire range of emotions one can express. The authors intelligently use technology to bring the story to life...you can literally hear the story and envision it happening right before your eyes. Well done...well done!" - Alexis H.
