Synopsis from the Back of the Book:
Growing up, goody-two-shoes Kirra Jacobs and trouble-maker Reef McKenna were always at odds. Now as they work search-and-rescue together for Alaska’s arduous Iditarod race, a growing attraction seems to be forcing aside old arguments. Then Reef catches Kirra sneaking from camp in the middle of the night.
Kirra’s uncle, a musher in the race, has disappeared. Kirra and Reef quickly track the man, but what they discover is harrowing : Frank’s daughter has been kidnapped. Kirra and Reef, along with the entire McKenna family, are thrown into a race to stop a shadowy villain who is not only threatening a girls’ life – but appears willing to unleash one of the largest disasters Alaska has ever seen.
What a great end to a well written series. I really enjoyed reading Kirra and Reef’s story as well as seeing ends tied up with the rest of the McKenna clan. As with the rest of the books in this series, there was also a great fast-paced suspense story to go along with it. This story also had a good underlying faith theme questioning where God is in the midst of evil and I liked watching that develop.
I wasn’t sure whether I would like Kirra because I wasn’t so sure about her introduction in the previous book, but getting to know her and learn about her deep struggles made me really admire her. I was glad that she and Reef didn’t spend most of the book pushing each other away as I thought they might.
When Reef first showed up in the earlier books, he had issues but throughout the series we watched him mature and actually find his relationship with God. By the time we get to his story in this book he is now a man that I like and am rooting for. It doesn’t take him long to show Kirra that he has changed.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
With some of the books in this series I gravitated toward the characters over the plot and some of the books were the plot over the characters. In this book I found myself captivated by both the characters and the plot. This was a good and satisfying end to the series.
What I didn’t like about this book:
I will miss the McKenna family…
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Would I recommend this book to others?
Definitely. I loved it. This author mixed great suspense plots with good characters in a way that I thoroughly enjoyed. Please read this book after you have read the rest in the series. It is a standalone, but the depth of Reef’s character is better appreciated if you read the others first.
