4:30 am and I just finished it. I didn't read it all in one go, but I had to finish it up to see what would happen!

Turns out that this is the last book--so far--in a series. Didn't really need to read the other books to understand things...it was pretty well spelled out. But I did go track down a few of the others to read, eventually. I fell in love with the characters and 'awwwed' way too many times.

This is the last one book of the Alex Reynolds series published to date. It's quite good with lots of twists and lots of Alex and Peter doing their "thing". The Reynolds family ends up giving asylum to this young Iraqi soldier. Mayhem follows. Written and published before the war begun.
