My Review:

Not many books are simply a nonstop page turner. This book takes hold of a reader and doesn't let go. The subtle shifting of time by using clearly defined chapters with titles is brilliantly done.

There are several main characters in this first book of a gripping series. Drake is one of the main while Emery is graced with the other POV. Nonstop action that is edge of your seat exciting. If you do have a weak stomach, you may want to take it easy on some of the action scenes. Realism with a capital R is the raison d'etre of this work.

Fans of Dan Brown will certainly want to get into this series on book one. Epic in style and premise, this book doesn't disappoint. Once you have finished book one, you will be desperate to get your hands on the second book. A spectacular start to what should be an award-winning series.

My Rating: 5 stars
