The BookViral Review:

“Past Intentions” by Keels is a thrilling read that keeps the reader on their toes with unexpected surprises.

While urban fiction is a popular genre, many books within it can feel unoriginal. However, “Past Intentions” stands out for its originality, avoiding clichés and bringing a fresh perspective to the genre. Keels has a talent for writing realistic dialogue that adds immediacy to the plot. The story is well-written, well-paced, and engaging from beginning to end.

Fans of urban fiction will not be disappointed by Keels’ prequel to Future Consequences. It is fast-paced and filled with double-crossing and unexpected adversities. 

What sets “Past Intentions” apart from other books within the genre is the realistic portrayal of certain kinds of destructive behavior. The characters, Chill and Jamal, are forced to confront their morals as events spiral out of control. The book also highlights the socio-economic realities of urban settings and the darker side of city living. Keels doesn’t shy away from explicit content, including profanity, sex, and violence, but it is all in keeping with the story and the genre.

“Past Intentions” is a quick read that rapidly builds momentum. It is intense and, at times, morally dark. However, the characters are well-suited to their roles and are filled with color and nuance. The book also offers a profound meditation on family, friendship, belonging, and home.

A highly engaging read, with a cliff hanger ending, that serves as an enlightening prequel to “Future Consequences”. It is strongly recommended!
