For the first half of the book, Charlie West is once again in less-than-ideal circumstances. He is locked up in the state prison where the radical Islamists are trying to kill him while he is protected (?) by the racist Nazis in the prison. The United States government refuses to acknowledge his participation in bringing down the Homelander terrorist group, and the leader of the Homelanders may have escaped. During one of his memory ...more
I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes these kinds of books -- Christian Young Adult, Action, Suspense, Mystery. But then, I'm not a big fan of YA books and I absolutely loved these!

It kind of had two paces. At first it seemed slow. Then, the ending, felt way to fast. And the action kept getting interrupted by thoughts from the main character, Charlie.

But the ending was kind of predictable.

Andrew Klavan is a great author, putting you in Charlie's headspace without needing any suspension of disbelief. The story is fast-paced and exciting, and kept me hooked the whole way through. There's just something inimitably real about the way Charlie acts around his friends, their banter and emotions, and you really felt it right along with them.
