It took me a little while to really grasp all that was going on in this book. But once I figured out the characters, and got a grip on the story line, I was hooked. The plot thickens the deeper you get into the book, and a series of twists and turns keeps you guessing. The author incorporated alot of suspense and various shady characters , so the reader is never really sure who the "real" culprits are. The ending is not easily deciphered. I will certainly be on the lookout for the release of the next book in this series.
*I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review.*
