My experience with Christian thrillers has often been boredom.
As I started reading it, I was immediately drawn into the story. My only concern originally was that the evil dudes weren’t nasty enough, but they were truly horrid as I got to know them–absolutely ruthless. They were just always laughing and having a good time as they destroyed their targets and wreaked havoc in the world. At first that seemed a little “cartoony” to me, but I’ve known very nasty men and women who really enjoyed the havoc they created. These people were really devious and enjoyed it.
The heros were believable and entirely likable. I would have liked to see the Lord get a bit more credit, but it wasn’t really necessary as the outsider (i.e. me the reader) could certainly see the Lord’s hand at work.
The good guys never really had any serious trials. I was never scared for their survival. So, in that regard it was not “realistic”, or should I say “worldly”. There are no heads exploding in a red mist. But the violence is very real and handled very well by a writer who’s had experience.
The final word was I sought out the book, rather than drawing it out or delaying the reading. I couldn’t wait to get it finished. It was very close to “I couldn’t put it down”. When I was done, I was content. It is a really nice story about good people who have good things happen to them—even though the enemy is trying to kill them.
I certainly recommend it. It’s a Createspace book and the quality was good. It’s available as a Kindle book also.
