Series: Riley Covington Thriller
Elam and Yohn unfold a fast-paced plot that keeps the reader engrossed. The story opens with intense action scenes and refuses to let the characters take a break as the key characters face one threat after another. The leader of the Cause is back again in this sequel, and he unleashes a plan to destroy America, as well as kill Riley Covington. Suddenly, sleeper-cells of terrorists are called into action across the country, unleashing deadly force. Covington confronts several difficult decisions in his quest to protect his family and friends. Covington uses John 15:13, Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends as guidance in fighting the sinister plot of the terrorists. This is especially evident as Covington sprints head-on into a flurry of bullets in order to protect his friends, creating a powerful climax.
Covington is a powerful character, devoted to his family and principles, yet he also faces real-life dilemmas in his romantic relationships, as well as feeling helpless in the wake of the attacks. There is a great balance of intense action and comic relief to keep the story rolling. However, the dialogue feels contrived at times, resulting in superficial characters. Also, the plot has the ability to strike fear into the minds of impressionable readers as seemingly normal Middle-Eastern-Americans are transformed into bomb-wielding terrorists at the simple word of a terrorist mastermind.
An exciting plot covers up some of the minor flaws of the novel, resulting in a story that keeps the reader entertained for all 357 pages. While no deep, life-changing lessons are imparted, the book is entertaining throughout and easy to read. is fantastic for anyone who enjoys the spy-thriller genre, especially males in the 14 to 24 age range.
