The good-guys, the bad-guys, and the wild card- it’s the ultimate game of cloak and dagger…
This book had be at the cover. I mean, did you see it? Let’s just say that he makes me want to be a spy! Or at least read the book to see what it’s all about. I like it when a cover draws you in like that. I know a lot of people buy books online, but I still prefer to go to a traditional book store. Had I been looking in this spy section of the story and came across this cover, I would definitely take a closer look!
I thought this was a fun read. It enabled me to release the inner-spy in me and have some fun! The characters were engaging, and well, I must say that I thought Kristian’s character lived up to the cover model. Still kind of swoony, in a “I keep things to myself”, mysterious kind of way. But it was really Amelia who grabbed my attention. Sure, she was a little mysterious, but the way she talked about the Lord really stood out to me. What a wonderful way to present the gospel!
I do have to admit that at times, I felt the book was a little confusing. I’m not sure if it was because my brain just couldn’t keep up with all that was going on, or perhaps it’s meant for a younger audience who would have an easier time following the storyline. It wasn’t overly confusing, and after a few pages I managed to put it all together and figure it out, so honestly I could have been just me. But this issue aside, I thought the author created a fun and engaging story, and I look forward to reading more from her!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and ideas are my own.

Guest Post from Jes Drew
I began writing at a very young age. I don’t think I even started school yet when I came out with my first children’s titles. The Swan Princess and Flamingo Queen was followed by a sequel The Duck Prince and Unicorn King (because I thought it was unfair that only the mom and sister had to go through transformations), and Julian and Juliette had many reprints- all carefully printed and illustrated by myself before moving to their final destination: safekeeping in my mom’s possession.
Years later, I resumed my writing craft near the end of elementary school with two series of chapter books I wrote and then read aloud to my family. However, it was not until I watched Marvel’s Avengers that I found my true muse (Captain America, obviously). The story was so enthralling, I could do nothing but pick up the pen and compose my first published trilogy: The Ninja and Hunter Series published when I was sixteen. This was followed by the tree books of The Howling Twenties two years later.
But, no longer a ‘young adult’ I’ve moved on beyond that genre to the next age group: New Adult. That genre infamously known for its many vices and sins. However, we as Christians are called to “Take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5b), and a genre targeted toward twenty-somethings should be no exception.
So this is my first release in the New Adult genre. Kristian Clark might be a secret-agent-turned-private-investigator-turned-secret-agent again, but he still deals with the same problems all twenty-somethings face: adapting to a career, longing for a soul mate, and searching for deeper meaning in all the noise. With a little intrigue and cool gadgets on the side because, well, he is a secret-agent-turned-private-investigator-turned-secret-agent after all.
