Reveiw: Eye for an Eye by Irene Hannon

 An Eye for An Eye is the second book in the Heroes of Quantico series. It doesn’t matter though. I haven’t read the first one and it was not a problem to follow the characters in this book.

I enjoyed that it was written with a St. Louis setting since I live so close. I could easily place the characters and the officers uniforms which made it fun.

The chance meeting and shooting almost seemed to coincidental to me but I moved past that pretty fast, realizing that to engage a reader action needs to happen quickly and it did. Throughout the book it seems there is something happening to these characters. There was even a classic part where you are yelling ‘don’t go…” I’m not telling is it in that room, in the shower, or outside? You’ll have to read the book to find the answer.

I found Emily’s story resonating with me. Emily is a widow and her grief has closed her off from letting anyone get close to her. Hannon  captured in words how a widow feels accurately. Good job.

The spiritual journey while important to the story and the healing of these broken characters does not over invade the story. The suspense is high and you are wondering until the end who is the target, the Mark Sanders  or Emily Lawson.

While you can read this book alone you’ll want to pick up book one to read Coop’s story and then you’ll be waiting in anticipation for the next book to read about Nick.

“Extraordinary writing, vivid scenes and surprise ending
. . . a not-to-be-missed reading experience.”
