Synopsis: Charles Castro is a man who was born with a gift of super human strength, and is the founder and leader of a secret group called the Alliance, an unidentified potent group of highly trained experts who work undisclosed in their efforts to help fight and protect humanity. When Charles goes missing, in the efforts to finding him, his group of secret men, stumble upon a thirty-year old secret that reveals the truth about their leaders’ dead son, Dillon, who supposedly died at birth but is now discovered to be very much alive. Now Dillon, who also secretly possesses the same gift of super human strength, must be found to fulfill his fathers’ role before the ultimate threat of why he was taken away from his father years ago prevails again. Dillon must join a world he never knew existed having lived a life inadvertently in hiding. He must now embark on dark hidden truths, his fathers’ covert Alliance, and a sinister archenemy out to get him. Will Dillon’s resentment and anger be the downfall of a legacy meant for him to lead one day or will he stand up for the ultimate and yet biggest challenge he will ever face, saving his father’s legacy and finally finding his father, if he is still alive.
Review: When I read the description of THE SECRETIVES, I was very intrigued. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get into the story past the first chapter or two. I applaud the author's efforts because it's not easy to get started in the world of writing. However, it is obvious THE SECRETIVES is in need of a strong editorial hand. I do hope there is a revised edition of THE SECRETIVES at a future point because I think it has a lot of potential.
