    I've spent many, many hours working with addicts. I have been amazed at how well Terri portrays the struggle in the "Intervention" series. Just finished "Vicious Cycle" and it maintains that sense of realism. And as with all her books, the characters ring true. While the books are certainly not pie in the sky they realistically and powerfully portray hope. Can't wait for the next one - hopefully there will be a next one.

    Terri Blackstock is one of my favorite authors. Her novels are intense, I've not been disappointed yet.

    This is the story of a girl who gets caught up in the world of drug addiction. Her family isn't supportive and she's basically left to care for herself. The choices she makes are not the best. Her addiction has led her into a world of danger. Terri gives us an insight into addiction. This book will keep you up late reading!

    Terri always leads us to God and His mercy. This is a must read!

    Ah, yes. Suspense at its finest. Terri Blackstock has brought back Barbara and Lance from Intervention and Lance is front and center this time as he gets into a load of trouble when a meth baby shows up in his backseat and he is arrested for kidnapping. This pulls him and his mother into a dangerous world of drugs and human trafficking as they try to save the baby and clear Lance at the same time.

    Terri knows how to keep me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning to the very end and she does not disappoint in Vicious Cycle. I loved it!

    Vicious Cycle was more than just a story about addiction. It was a story about faith, and learning to trust God. It was about overcoming temptation and believing that God can restore what the locusts have eaten. It showed how God can create beauty from the ashes of our lives. I've worked in a rehab before and on a variety of levels with drug addicted parents and teens. This story was an accurate reflection of some of the horrors I've seen working with people in similar situations.

    What I loved about this story was that it also showed how hard it is to deal with drug addiction for everyone involved. Not just the addict, but the family, the friends, even innocent bystanders. Loving people who are addicted (especially to meth) can be such a catch 22. You want to help but the addicted person need to want to be helped for it to make a difference. There is a fine line that often blurs between tough love and enabling.

    Addiction is a complex issue. There is hope and anger, and an overabundance of fear that families deal with as they try to support their recovering family member. Blackstock did a fantastic job of showing that. And talk about awesome pacing. This was a page turner from the beginning. The story kept building. The plot kept thickening. The danger kept increasing. And I kept reading. I had to know what would happen. This author pulled no punches, making this one riveting story with a lot of substance to it. Wonderful read! I highly recommend it.
