Eric lives and breathes cars. He's grown up alongside his estranged older brother and works alongside his best friend Kev - an illegal street racing veteran. Now a young adrenaline-laden high school graduate, the streets of the city of San Iago are this man's oyster as he sets out to delve into the depths of a world of enthralling speed and terrible dangers.
With an ongoing conflict between racers from all different sects of the underground world, Eric declares steadfast loyalty to the group of import "tuners". But when he encounters a group of muscle car enthusiasts willing to take bad blood to the next level, is Eric ready to go all-in as the city streets degrade into all-out war?
Turbocharged follows the development of Eric from a young, naïve boy with starry-eyed ambitions to a seasoned tuner having nearly been in the back seat of a cop car more times than he can count. Throughout his journey, shock and tragedy await at every corner. Everything is at risk for the sake of pride, from losing your car, license or receiving hefty fines. Even your very life is at stake, as soon becomes painfully clear.
Turbocharged is Available On Kindle And Free With Kindle Unlimited.
If you are a car enthusiast, race fan, or street racer, you will be immediately taken by this novel. If not, you can still enjoy it as a read different from your usual because it is a story about people, their ambitions, desires, and conflicts. Be prepared, however, for a large measure of technical descriptions about automobiles and their modification, pumped for street racing, probably more than the average person can understand.
This novel is more than a story about cars. Primarily, it is about Eric whose young life revolves around street racing and modifying cars for that purpose. He is young, inexperienced, and oblivious to the inherent dangers. He is unaware that tragedy is constantly looking over his shoulder.
This novel deserves a 5 star rating in its genre because of the writer's knowledge and presentation (writing style). Characters are well-defined, believable, interesting, and come alive through the author's pen. Although the characters are a select set, they are understandable.
The conflict between the tuners and muscle car enthusiasts and the excitement of the street takes the reader into another world. Bottom line: first-rate story development and characterization. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, About Good and Evil.
