Book six, and it’s still going strong, the plot is still just as engaging. The characters are all convening to the same spot. This is going to be a shocker, and I wasn’t prepared for this at all!!
How do I review this book without giving anything away?
As you know the previous five books spent a lot of time repeating scenarios (just with different people) it wasn’t until half way though the book we would see them doing something different.
This book had a few of those elements, but we spend so much more time with Emilia and Malin.
Malin is a soldier working for Interpol, his job is to rescue hostages and to defuse hostile situations.
But there is also a secret that Malin can’t tell his brothers in arms…..
Emilia is sister to Naomi (book 1: Depths of Destruction) not a reporter, she teaches English to Spanish children.
Shy, quiet and sensitive, Emilia is scared of her own shadow (an incident in her past) but being with Malin shows us another side of Emilia, and it’s one I never saw coming.
They were never meant to meet! Emilia was in the wrong place at the wrong time! An unknown and dangerous variant that Malin had never factored into this scenario. So for everyone’s peace of mind (well his really) Emilia needed to be reunited with her sister Naomi as quick as possible.
But spending time with each other brings them both a sense of peace that neither have felt in a long time, and that’s dangerous! Letting your guard down even for a minute can get people killed!
This was saving the best till last! It brings this awesome series to an explosive finish. All loose ends are tied up, and all the explanations all make sense now. We see why this book was broken down into bite size pieces, to explain all of this in one book would have been a mistake.
This series is definitely needing to be read in order as each book gives you just a bit more of the puzzle. This book puts the pieces together and lets you see the whole picture.
And at first I really wasn’t sure! The beginning sounded so ominous, had we all got it wrong, were we looking at the wrong people? I really did question myself!
All the women had faced abuse in one form or another, all their stories were dark and sad. Emilia’s was sad, but so empowering too, to take back her choices, to have a say in her life that had to have helped her overcome her own fears and her own self worth.
This one was the darkest, the most twisted, but the one who knows will have you breathless with anticipation.
So can Malin and Emilia end the reign of terror that the Global Leaders have in store for the world? Or will it all just be too much?
Highly recommend this book and this series.
