I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I had stopped reading the author’s John Corey series because I was tired of hearing about the Middle East, which is what most authors of this type of novel seem to focus on.
I have read other DeMille novels and enjoyed them.
In this one things really don’t get going in the first third of the book. It is mostly about Corey’s Middle East background, and explaining where Tess Faraday fits in.
I almost abandoned it, but stayed with it until the end. Once things did get going, I found them predictable.
This will probably be the last I will read from this author.
It seems he is putting out the same old thing with different locals and protagonists. It is almost like there is a formula and he is filling in the blanks.
If you read this, let me and the author know what you think.
My star ratings are the same as those at Goodreads.com:
1 Star: Did not like it (maybe even didn’t finish)
2 Star: It was OK
3 Star: I liked it
4 Star: I really liked it
5 Star: It was amazing
