Hero: The Beginning by Jason Zandri
At any moment, any tiny, seemingly insignificant event can, and often does, change our life forever. How we react and deal with the consequences of that event, is what develops, and defines our character. Author Jason Zandri uses his amazing writing talent to help us understand that reality in this first book of what is certainly going to be a phenomenal series. Hero: The Beginning is more than just a science fiction, supernatural suspense story, but also a philosophical journey not just for main character Nathan, but for every reader as well. Like each of us, Nathan is an ordinary person, living his life as best he can. But, like each of us, he must one day make a choice, to become the person he was meant to be (whether he likes it or not) or to ignore his conscience and forever change the direction of his life path, and that of everyone around him.

———————————————————————————————————————

An everyday man, living less than ordinary life in New York City, simply makes his way about his work life and one at home. A kind heart and an empathetic soul, who tended to think of others before he thought of himself.

With his childhood totally left behind and gone with the final resting of his father, Nathan has come to terms with his past as he forges his life in the present, unaware of what lies ahead.

An unlikely friendship, a random act of violence, a budding romance, all part of a life changed.

“When it’s your time, there’s nothing you can do to change that outcome. The only thing you can do is meet it head on. You have to hope that the life you had with others, while you were here, has made a positive impact.” – Brian Devron

“Where there is darkness, you are light. Where others know fear, you will be brave. When there are setbacks, you will persevere. Where others find weakness, you bring strength. Where there is despair, you are hope. Where cowardice falls, you rise courageously. Where others do not have the ability to believe, you have faith. You will suffer, so that others will endure. You will triumph where others would fall.” – Cici Johnson

“This is it; it all changes tonight. Anything I do tonight, at a minimum, is going to at least expose all of this to the world.” – Nathan Devron.

“Every new beginning starts from nothing. Understanding that you can have everything in the love of one person, isn’t that worth the risk of personal capital? Isn’t that kind of love worth it?” – Diane Wakeford

“Have I ever told you, you’re the nicest boy I’ve ever met?” – Melissa Bancroft

“I will have the friends I want. I don’t care what boy likes me or what boy I like. You’re an awesome friend. I am not giving you up because we’re going to different schools or for any one person either.” – Elizabeth Wellsworth

Today’s society is filled with broken homes and transient kids. While divorce was just starting to become more acceptable as I was growing up, it is now the norm and author Jason Zandri has written a very poignant tale of one family’s experience in “As Life Goes: Elementary”. The story of Mark and his son Matthew, who return to Mark’s childhood hometown to start over after a divorce. The struggles of starting a new school and meeting new people are illustrated as are the pains of loss. This is a great story that I became quickly invested in and that I found very easy to relate to. Definitely recommend.

One bullet and a three-story drop. An upstanding cop sentenced to life in prison. Case closed.

For FBI Agent Jordan Bening, danger lurks at every turn. Always has. In the years since his mother’s murder, his life has been about vindication, defense—and finding evidence to overturn one resounding courtroom gavel. Not only because the guilty verdict put his best friend’s favorite uncle in prison, but because he knows the real murderer is still out there. Watching. Waiting.

And the killer is sending a message: Silence has a price.

FBI Agent McKenna Moore doesn’t believe her uncle—a solid, dependable, well-liked, and hardworking former detective with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department—could have committed murder. It’s a truth she’s never uttered to anyone, especially Jordan. Not even after their impromptu reunion and subsequent drunken nuptials.

When the murder of the wife of Charlotte’s most influential family brings Jordan and McKenna together for the first time since the wedding, the pair is plunged into an investigation that takes an unexpected turn from bad to worse with evidence that shouldn’t exist. Evidence that should be safely locked away and labeled in another case. Another crime.

Evidence that leads right to both of them. To a moment in time when they made their choices and vowed to keep the silence. He left. She stayed.

They were never supposed to reunite.
