The story picks up a little after we left Bree and Kade in Into the Deep. Though, you can absolutely read this book as a stand-alone and be fine. However, you will definitely finish it wanting to pick up the other books.
The author did such a great job with the internal conflict all throughout the book. I felt myself almost in anguish for the characters as I read along. Several times, I had tears in my eyes hoping things would work out the way the character prayed. However, as with all of Coble’s books there is a definite sense of realism within the pages. Life isn’t perfect and doesn’t always work out the way we’d hoped.
This wasn’t a book about the main character finding salvation and at the end of the book we know she’s done that and we feel all happy inside. No. This book was about what happens next. How even as Christians, we don’t have a perfect life. Most never get everything they ever want, and we still need to seek God’s direction before we can find our way out of the darkness. Being a Christian doesn’t necessarily give us an easier path and Coble does a great job showcasing that.
This book was a little different for me because as I’m reading it I was getting a sense of where the author was going and I wasn’t sure I liked it. As a reader, I was nervous and unsure how she would rectify the conflict she had created. On the other side, as a writer, I could see the way the conflicts were keeping me deep into the book. I was unable to stop reading and even on a work night, found myself reading at midnight. This author does a masterful job in creating a story we’re unable to walk away from. Great read!
