Full Tilt: A Creston Mapes Blog Tour and Review

I once sowed destruction. 

Now those I love are reaping pain.  

The media hype is fading and my life is no longer that of a glamorous celebrity. I'm Everett Lester, former lead singer of DeathStroke, acquitted last year of first-degree murder, now married, a Christian, and ready to take my story to the masses through music. Problem is, the turmoil of my past didn't end when the reporters left.

My wife Karen and I have received news that has rocked our world. My brother Eddie's gambling is so far out of control that the mob practically owns him. And Eddie's son, Wesley--who blames me for his brother's death--is mixed up with meth, a psychotic named Tony Badino, and a satanic voice that's urging him to take me out.

Will my Living Water tour ever hit the road? Will former fans stop hissing long enough to hear about the transforming power of Christ's love? Satan once used me for evil--only through God's power can I be used for good. The question is: will my loved ones and I be able to survive the aftermath of a rock star's life?

Everett Lester faces enemies both human and supernatural. Satan won't give up his hold on Everett, his family, or his fans without a vicious fight. God's victory is certain in the supernatural realm, but will Everett survive the earthly battle that's threatening to obliterate him?

My Review:

Full Tilt is the sequel to Dark Star and is just as good. You see the main character, Everett, live out his past as a rockstar due to the results of past lifestyle choices. But he does not allow the past to define him, he allows Christ to define him and change him.

Again the book is fast pasted and a quick read (I read it in only a day or so). It is a fictional account of how when we choose to change our lives, Satan will do whatever he can to tempt us in order to mess with our witness. Wow, what a read to be sure. Everett and Karen are tested but stay true to their faith and I cannot wait to see what is next for Mapes in terms of his next novel. 

I highly recommend this novel and give it a huge thumbs up.
