    Dead Reckoning kept me turning pages to the end. The main female character had lots of spunk and was driven by something she was not even sure existed. It was a good mixture of suspense and romance. Even though you knew the characters were bound to end up together, the twist and turns kept the reader wondering how it would finally happen. Having a strong male who trusted in God enhanced the book and the relationship between the two main characters. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

    This is a great book ! I couldn't put it down, it kept me enthralled all the way through it. My daughter read it after me and she said the same thing.

    Well worth getting !

    You can get all the information on this book from Publishers descriptions and Christian Book Previews. But believe me this book is terrific. I'm talking non stop action from page one and it only gets better. There are so many twists and turns. Just when you you think you have it figured out, you're wrong. This was my first read from this author and loved it so much I immediately downloaded her other 3 book in the series "Discarded Heroes". They were also terrific. Titled Digitalis, Nightshade and Wolfsbane. I now have another favorite author.

    This review was written for Dead Reckoning.
    I liked "Nightshade" by this same author, but I was terribly disappointed with this novel. First, her excessive use of figurative language was distracting and sometimes even confusing. (She had shirts escorting people around, and people never just looked or smiled at someone but, "Her gaze tiptoed around his" and "his smile swam toward her.")

    Second, the female romantic lead was very slow to figure anything out, very proud, thought she knew more than the professionals and tried outwit them (even her allies) at their own game, and so on. Shiloh was so certain she knew what was going on even though her version of reality defied all evidence ('gee, I've had men chasing after me and shooting at me, the people I was with are dead, but surely no one's trying to KILL me.') This wouldn't be a huge problem except that her super-spy dad supposedly taught her the basics of staying alive because his enemies were likely to go after her and super-spy Reece thinks her so wonderfully clever, which makes her behavior harder to swallow because she soooo obviously isn't. (Unless "clever" means coming up with ways to get into trouble that no one else would consider because they have common sense.) She constantly needed to be rescued from her own foolish decisions, yet Reece fell in love with her personality. Only an idiot would fall in love with her _personality_, and Reece was otherwise not an idiot. I found it unbelievable that two men wanted to marry her. By the end, everyone's pushing Shiloh's chosen guy to get married to her quickly and not think it over, but, boy, he's going to get tired of being married to her really quickly.

    The book also needed editing. For example, Shiloh's in London, looks out a window, and sees a big clock she calls "Uncle Ben." Um, that's "Big Ben." She's locked in a luxurious prison room and told her meals will be delivered to her, yet the room has a stove. Who's going to give a prisoner knives and such to cook, anyway? The stove shouldn't have been there. Some things that were majorly important to the story (like the object found by Shiloh that was apparently worth killing for) disappeared from the plot and were never explained. Some aspects, like the miracle cure pill for Shiloh and picking a lock with a paper-clip, weren't realistic.

    There was a minor amount of "he cussed" style bad language. There was no sex. There was a lot of "you need Christ" talk toward Shiloh. And, overall, I don't recommend this book.
