Fiction - Christian - Suspense
I was pleasantly surprised to find myself engrossed in this book from page one. The pace was fast, yet easy enough to follow, the storyline intriguing. It reminded me of a Grisham or Baldacci novel in that the story outweighed the character development, but I still consider the comparison complimentary. I was sucked into an all too realistic world and found myself turning the pages quickly.
There was a definite message or theme here, and I usually balk when it's presented with a heavy hand in a work of fiction. However, this time it mostly worked as it grew from the actions and growth of the characters and plot lines itself. When I turned the last page, everything wasn't tied up in a neat little bow but I was left with plenty to chew on and contemplate- and I like that in a story. I finished this on Saturday. It's Monday and I am still mulling it over in my mind.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good read. I don't believe you'd have to be a Christian to enjoy the story, but then again I automatically read from my own worldview so please let me know if you read it and disagree. Christian readers will find a lot of food for thought among the pages of a well done story that holds it own.
Disclosure: I received this book at no cost, in exchange for an honest review.
