One thing's certain She can't risk prayer I liked Heaven's Prey the first book in Janet Sketchley’s Redemption’s Edge series But this one is even betterThe author has a gift for creating suspense I swear she could put tension in a character’s innocent yawn She’s adept at keeping the reader on edge without relying on violence destruction and sensual titillation As Sketchley demonstrates a skilled writer with a good story to tell needn't resort to lazy devicesCharacters—even the bad guys—are realistic easy to relate to the sort of people we meet every day Situations are believable neither stretched thin nor over the top Best yet unambiguous Christian themes come across as relevant without causing the reader to feel she’s being clubbed over the head with themThe solid plot moves along at a good pace with enough detail and description for the reader to visualize everything Though the book is self published its appearance is professional appearance in every aspectI look forward to the third book in the series which I understand Sketchley plans to release later this year And I hope this series won’t be the last we hear from this talented author
