Review: The Fail Safe

Fero continues his high-action escapades between enemy territory and home but he’s no longer sure which is which. Fero had believed Kamau was an innocent country besieged by vicious Besmarians. Now, he wonders if the reverse is true.

There are no clear-cut answers to even the simplest questions. Why can’t Fero remember his childhood? Are Fero’s parents real or trained spies? And what about Besmar and Kamau? They are on the verge of wiping each other off the face of the earth: is either country in the right? Fero faces life or death stakes in which his actions could precipitate the final stage of all-out war or save both countries. Even though he has no idea what to do or how to avoid disaster, Fero throws himself headlong into the action.

Will it all end in disaster? There’s only one way to find out. Buckle up and read Fail Safe. It’s one heck of a ride.
