Riley Covington loves Khadi Faroughi, but their differences in religious beliefs have kept them apart. When Khadi is taken captive by American Muslim extremists who have taken hostages at a state funeral where Khadi was working, Riley knows he must save the woman he loves before she is beheaded. Will there be time for him to rescue her and to her how he feels?
This is the first book in the Riley Covington series that I have read, and I wish I had read the first three. While this book can stand alone, reading the first three books would have given me more background information. However, I still enjoyed this book. It is action packed. From the first chapter to the last sentence, the roller coaster ride is fast and heart-thumping. Some of the action scenes are a little gruesome, but they add depth to the plot and are not written just to add gore to the story.
Fans of action packed suspense with Christian themes with love this book, despite it’s less than “happily ever after” ending. Although the ending is tough, it is necessary for the overall theme of the book and ends the series nicely. I hope the two authors work together again on another series.
I received this book from Tyndale for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own. J
