My son (22) read this and has been trying to get me to read it ever since. I’ve read parts of it he kept showing me while on our latest trip then he would place it on my TBR pile. While I have yet to read the entire book I can report that he loves it and weeks, and many books, later he will tell me things he remembers from the book. This is the same son that hated to read until just a few years ago and typically turns his nose up at books I offer. To say he is picky is an understatement. That said, I will confidently say this is a well written book that grips the reader from the beginning and holds on throughout the entire read. It has compelling characters that are fleshed out and a plot that feels well developed. Hawkins has a good grasp of what makes a great read. We received this book in exchange for an honest review however, this in no way has influenced our opinion.
