Jane4 Stars Out Of 5A Little Jason Bourne, A Little Leverage, A Whole Lot EntertainingMarch 26, 2020JaneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Get ready for action and adventure in Chasing the White Lion, by James R. Hannibal. From the beginning you find yourself in the midst of assassination attempts, conspiracy plots and family drama. There is very little down time between major scenes in this book, just enough to process the action and prepare you for what's coming.
With characters that are somewhat enigmatic and complex, Hannibal keeps you connected to the development and revelation of each person's role and personality. He draws the reader into the "family" of thieves who happen to be the heroes of his tale.
This book is a little bit Jason Bourne, a little bit Leverage and a little bit Oliver North, which adds up to a whole lot entertaining.
I wish I had known, before I began reading, that this is the second book in a series, the first being The Gryphon Heist. I feel that reading that first would have given me a better grip on the characters. However, Chasing the White Lion is still an excellent read on its own.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
cheryl3 Stars Out Of 5InspirationalMarch 25, 2020cherylQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Chasing the White Lion" by author James R. Hannibal is a story of twists, turns and mysteries. I did not realize that the "The Gryphon Heist" was the first book that I should have read to understand and follow the story line and characters in the second book. This book is not my style of reading, if you like James Bond or Tom Clancy than this one is for you.

Benjamin LilesMarble Falls, TXAge: 35-44Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5An Amazing SequelMarch 24, 2020Benjamin LilesMarble Falls, TXAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The last book by James Hannibal earned worthy praise from me, The Gryphon Heist. He has done a superb job yet again, this time with his book Chasing the White Lion. James Hannibal, the way I understand it in the sense of what Louis L'Amour would say of his characters, is the kind of guy who can wake up sensing something is wrong when the day is bright and clear as day. In fact, what can be known of James Hannibal is that he "is a two-time Silver Falchion award-winner for his Section 13 mysteries, a Thriller Award nominee for his Nick Baron ops series, and a Selah Award finalist for his Clandestine Service series" (from the book cover of this book).
What I can say about this wonderful action-filled book is that it goes above the gift of story-telling he achieved with Gryphon Heist. I recall saying of that book: "I can say is it's worth the read. It's exhilarating. It's continuous action from front to back. And above all, it's just simply...wonderful." Considering he has another hit with this book, which is the second in the Talia Inger series, he has another strong book with the same characters previously from Gryphon Heist.
What you will find with this book is that even though Talia has reconciled with the man who betrayed her father, she still can't trust him, yet. When duty calls to go after a syndicate boss known as the Jungle, she has to rescue a group of kidnapped refugee children. She gets more than she bargains for running a jagged edge against her family's dark past. All in the hopes of capturing the leader of the Jungle, the White Lion. From start to stop the story is intriguing, daring, and a non-stop suspense-filled thrill ride, you get another amazing story from James Hannibal. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review.
Mrs ARS4 Stars Out Of 5Lots of IntrigueMarch 24, 2020Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are looking for a thriller with plenty of espionage and secrecy in the government, and thrills and chases, then this is a read for you.
In a time of human trafficking and big money and coverups, CIA officer Talia is bent on getting to the truth: on who is trying to kill her, protecting her family, and saving a little girl and her classmates whom she has not event met- but she is willing to risk her life just the same.
This series puts me in the mind of the TV show Covert Affairs. Yes mainly because of the CIA, but both have a young woman as the main character. I enjoyed that show when it was on and I have really been enjoying this series as well. The big difference, and the one I like the most, is that Talia has faith in God. In fact she even gets baptized in this story. What could have turned into a preachy lesson did not. The author handled the faith dimension well by showing it as the basis for everything Talia does. It is intriguing to me to read about a spy that has that solid bedrock faith in her God.
I do wish their was more of a romantic aspect in this story. I am kind of wondering if certain things are being hinted at yet. I am not sure. So I will wait and see.
I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
