Book Readers Review
This is the first of Jon Land's books I have read but will not be the last one. The Tenth Circle is number eleven in the Blaine McCracken series. In this novel McCracken races to stop terrorists from unleashing an ancient weapon of unimaginable power at the president’s State of the Union speech. Land has achieved a blend of history, mystery, thriller, action, and mythical in his book. The story is fast paced and definitely needs an active mind to keep up with the events. At times I found myself having to go back in the story to review a few of the characters. They were presented at the start and dropped out of sight until near the end. That was a minor frustration.
Jon Land can hook the reader at once with links between past and present. These raise questions that can only be answered by continued reading. I like the shorter chapters and the first half of the book kept me moving forward at good pace. Then I found my interest wavering a little. The pace slowed and the action stretched out too much. But I was glad when Land picked up the speed of the events that kept my attention to the end. I would recommend The Tenth Circle for those who enjoy an action thriller with a twist. Be warned, the book is long at five hundred or so pages!
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the author, publisher, and NetGalley.
