Reminds me of that old saying, 'if all you've got is a hammer, all problems begin to resemble nails to you.' why this author feels she needs to repeat her point over and over, escapes me, except--I guess- that is how some authors are taught to write bestsellers. Seems rather insulting to her readers, however. Well. . . .maybe not to all the readers.. . .Ahem!

There is nothing wrong with the plot in this book, but the development of the main character leaves a lot to be desired. The author uses repetition of the same lines, situations, interactions, etc. to drive home the idea that the main character is a strong woman with a mind of her own who has fought against extreme odds. It really gets irritating after the third or fourth time in a span of 20 pages

Good thriller, looking forward to reading the whole series.The dialogue was a bit drawn out and repetitive at times, but the story was good.

I really loved this book and can't wait to read the rest of the series. I had a very hard time putting down the book. It was a real page turner. It was quite a mature read for me though.
