Teri has been reading His Revenge by John Howell
I read the first book in this series, My GRL, and already knew I liked John Cannon and wondered where his next adventure would take him. In His Revenge, we learn the terrorists aren’t finished with him yet.
This book begins just hours after My GRL ends and if you haven’t read it, enough details are scattered throughout the first few chapters so you get the gist of what happened. John is more of an unlikely hero type of guy and sometimes finds himself in situations making judgement calls that the reader just knows are bad ideas. Several times I wanted to yell and tell him to do the opposite of what his instincts were telling him; however, his occasional naivete’ is offset by his overall concern for others and desire to do the right thing. In this book, it seems no matter where he turns, people are gunning for him, making it hard for John to know who to trust.
The plot moves along at a brisk pace, providing suspense, some twists, and makes you question which team some of the characters are playing for up to the very last page. In some sections, substantial details regarding food, showers, etc. were provided, which pulled me out of the story and I tended to skip those sections as they weren’t important to the overall plot.
If you’re a thriller/suspense fan, make sure to check out this engaging series – I’ll be looking forward to the conclusion of John Cannon’s story in the last book of this trilogy.
I received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review through Rosie’s Book Review Team.
