Inspirational Thriller for Teens

Charlie is in jail and terrified, waiting for the killer's he knows are there to silence him. His memory is coming back. This makes the violence in the jail that much worse, because having his memory come back is a painful process that rips his insides. Whatever happens, Charlie knows he can't give up and he isn't alone. God is walking with him in this dangerous quest to stop the Homelanders.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Charlie is a likeable and believable character, someone teens can identify with. The action is fast paced and thoroughly entertaining. You don't want to put it down.

I particularly liked the way the author brought Christianity into the story. It wasn't overwhelming, or preachy. Charlie exemplified good Christian ideals. He lived by his belief. This is the kind of story I hope teens are reading. It makes faith very real and important for survival.

I highly recommend this book, not only for teens, but for anyone who enjoys a great read!

I reviewed this book as part of the Thomas Nelson Booksneeze Program.
