Transformations in Pain
“Transformations in Pain continues the journey of Xander Drew, Mike Harris and Cathy Kennessy. Ledrew is able to deal with the horrifying event in a realistic way. Each character has to deal with the fallout while continuing life in Coral Beach, an unrelenting town full of surprises. You will never want to leave Coral Beach.”
Paul Carberry, Bestselling author of: Zombies on the Rock
“When Transformations in Pain focuses on the mystery elements, it moves at breakneck speeds. The dialogue is sharp – a common trait in LeDrew’s novels – and the plot weaves together quite cleverly.”
Jay Paulin, Ink’d Well Comics, May 2011
“[The novel] has a Whedon-esque feel to it but is really good. The comedy in it is just right for this horror genre [the author] is working on.”
Steve Lake, Sci-Fi on the Rock TV
