Smith by Sam B Miller II is a thrilling paranormal fiction tale in which a young man finds a ring and soon his whole life changes. This is the story of an 18-year-old named Jake, who finds a gorgeous and innocent looking ring, and decides to wear it. Upon wearing the ring, Jake realizes that this is not an ordinary ring and he is really not alone anymore. There is a constant voice inside his head that speaks to him and demands his attention. The ring and the voice (Smith) give him power, but there is a side effect; the ring is attracting a lot of attention from some very bad people.
With Smith constantly speaking to him and giving him sometimes needed, sometimes not needed advice, Jake is fighting battles against the odds that always seem to be stacking up against him. While he is literally fighting evil, he meets the gorgeous and feisty Nava, who is a security agent and Jake’s partner. She is among only a few people Jake can truly trust, especially now that he is facing countless attacks from an unknown entity that wants Jake’s ring. Can Jake survive and keep the ring safe? Or will he perish at the hands of the unknown planner behind these attacks?
This is definitely a unique story that focuses on the main character and the plot, and the smooth development of these two elements. I enjoyed the original concept, how the characters were unique yet relatable at the same time, and how the story connected everything together. I thoroughly enjoyed how sassy and incredibly pompous Smith was at times, and then equally caring and humorous as well. Often seen as one entity, Smith and Jake made a strong team and the addition of Nava made them even stronger. This is an interesting novel that had me wanting more and I was sad to find that I had read it all. It was too entertaining to put down. It truly deserves 5 stars!
