"If I could give this book 10 stars I would. This is one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I was given this book, but was not asked to leave a review. I loved this book so much that I purchased it so I could show my support to the author. I will only say how I felt, and how I think you will feel if you read it. I will not give away any major details or spoilers. I will say that I did not expect the ending although I can see how that specific ending had to happen in order for me, as a reader, to experience the message of the story.

     Once things started happening they never stopped! Richard ran into one person after another. Some aided him in his journey while he was the one helping others. Each experience with the characters he comes across leaves you with a different range of emotions. It may leave you feeling anxious, angry, hopeful, excited, happy, ticked-off, it may break your heart, and it leave you with a smile from how Richard impacts so many people on his journey home to his family.

     When you are finished with this book you will be left with a sense of wanting to be a better person for yourself and those around you. There are so many lessons to be learned within the beautiful story and words of this book, and you will want to pass them along. You will feel an urge to go out and do good, to tell people you love how you feel, and never take for granted one single moment." ---Amazon Reader & author

     "I was given a copy of One More in exchange for an honest review.  I've read many books from Indies and One More is one of the best stories I've read so far. The writing is crisp and tight, but at the same time the writer effectively describes scenes and emotions with such depth that you can't help but feel entangled in the story.

     One More is the story of a man fighting his inner demons. The death of his son and financial failures have brought him to a dark place, and his life and marriage are falling apart. While on a surveying trip, Richard Evans finally realizes what he must do to take control of his life once more. He couldn't wait to go back home and patch things up with his estranged wife and children. Unfortunately, a solar surge occurred which brought down power grids and communication satellites. The whole world was in chaos. Still, Richard will not let anything stand in the way of reuniting with his family. The book goes on to chronicle Richard's experiences on his way back home. How he questioned his own morality and the goodness of people. You will stay by his side and keep him company on his journey. You will want to know how the story will end.

     One More is a book that will touch you in many ways. We all go through struggles, trying to be the best person we can be. It's a realistic and honest view of the qualities that make us human. I highly recommend it. It has become one of my favorite self published books. The author is most definitely an exceptional writer." ---Amazon reader & Indie book critic

      "Every character has become a part of my life. I read this book cover to cover and couldn't put it down. The feelings this story elicited from me can't be duplicated. I'm looking forward to the series of books. Five stars! Very few books get that rating from me!" ---Amazon Reader

      “Lance ..... I finished the novel a few minutes ago! It was a nail bitter, kept me on the edge of "what's going to happen next", it made me sad, a little angry, it made me smile! Your words were so vivid that I could see the story as I read it. As I reflect on the story & the meaning for me, it is to live in love and acceptance of one self. A love that is unconditional, just as God loves us as his children. To be there for others and to leave a legacy of character.”  ---A woman who bought 10 copies of One More to give to friends

     “I loved the final chapters <-----------SPOILER REMOVED------------>. I particularly enjoyed your prose in <-----------SPOILER REMOVED-------------> was heart-wrenching. I look forward to seeing the other books in the series, from the other character's perspectives. I genuinely feel your book has the potential to do quite well. Because of how much I've enjoyed it, I will be telling people about it as often as I can.” --- An English teacher

     “Are you f***ing kidding me?! <------------SPOILER REMOVED---------------> The book is awesome, BTW. <-------------SPOILER REMOVED---------->  I cried a couple of times. It is very moving...I read lots of types of books. Yours is good. It's not a Tolkien, Martin, or King...but it is as good or better than most of the books I get by lesser known authors.” ---A teacher

    "Great journey of a flawed individual (as we all are) finding himself as a father, spouse, businessman, former police officer, and friend. The characters he encounters are real, as are the struggles he faces. This is an action adventurer where the hero is real, not supernatural. He doesn't save the world from impending doom, but instead gives us all a little faith in humanity and inspiration to right the wrongs in our life. It is never too late." ---Amazon reader

    "I highly recommend you get this book. Very seldom do I find a book that I don't want to put down. You will find in reading that there are certain happenings that could very well take place now in our lifetime. There is a lot of food for thought for all of us. I just hope Lance Haynes has more to come because I know I'm a am a fan. Keep the books coming Lance. To all of you, get the book you won't be disappointed." ---Amazon reader

    "Great book! Very fitting for the times we are living in. Things happen in the book that really cause you to stop and think. Not your traditional, predictable outcome." ---Amazon reader

    “I want you to know that I read every word of your book and I  LOVED it! It's so interesting and well written that I could hardly put it down. I couldn't believe <-----------SPOILER REMOVED------------>.  At first I thought I read it wrong. Everything came together so well.  Last night I loaned the book to my son-in-law, who I know will love it. I'll let you know what he says.  Thank you for writing the story. When you write another one, please let me know. Good luck to you in the future. You're terrific!” ---A teacher

    “I read your book.  It was very interesting and not what I expected.   Once into it, it was hard to put down.  It is quite spiritual and semi-religious, again not what I was expecting, but interesting.  <------------SPOILER REMOVED------------>  The book certainly made me think about me and my place in my life and if that was a goal, it worked." ---Retired lawyer

      “All I can say is WOW!   I was riveted from the minute I picked it up.  You are responsible for me not getting anything done yesterday at all.  I hope the book does well and that you get lots of speaking engagements from the publicity on it.  You'd be a great motivational speaker for so many groups.  Please write another book based on the premise of the flare.   I can't wait for the next one.”  ---Retired avid reader

     “I bought your book for my mom, she wanted me to pass along to you that it's one of the best books she's ever read. And it's been a long long time since she's read a book that she didn't want to put down. She reads at night to fall asleep but your book does just the opposite. Needless to say you’re at the top of her list of authors and can't wait for more.” ---From an avid reader
