Kennedy Stern has returned to campus after surviving an abduction, but old scars cut deep. Vivid flashbacks and terrifying dreams paralyze her, threatening to ruin her academic career and any chance she has at peace or happiness. This mental anguish, however, constitutes only a small fraction of her post-traumatic nightmare.
A partner in Kennedy’s kidnapping remains at large and will not stop until he has silenced her witness permanently. His violent resolve risks not only her life, but the safety of anyone who tries to help.
Kennedy must engage in a deadly battle of the mind as she struggles to stay alive. While fighting on two fronts — one psychological and one physical — the question isn’t whether she’ll come out of the war stronger in the end.
The question is whether she’ll come out of it at all.
My Comments: This book is the second installment in the Kennedy Stern Christian Suspense Novel series, and I couldn’t really enjoy it until I read Volume 1 – “Unplanned.” Having said that, this is a great read — the whole series is. It seems since the main character is a Harvard student that it is mainly geared towards Young Adults, but as an emerging senior citizen, I enjoyed it as well. The story heavily deals with PTSD. I think because the main character is an MK (missionary kid), young adults with issues as preacher’s kids, missionary’s kids, or anyone with parents in ministry will benefit from reading about Kennedy and the struggles she deals with. I also feel that any young Christian who has dealt with severe trauma would benefit as well. The writing is good, fast, engaging, and entertaining. I loved it because I love procedurals as mysteries. I also like the Christian aspects throughout the book. I recommend it!
I received a free e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
