Blind Spot is a great suspense! Dani Pettrey’s characterization is excellent, and the Chesapeake Valor series is brimming with characters readers will care about and root for. I really enjoyed Declan and Tanner’s story and welcomed the opportunity to revisit characters from earlier novels. While Blind Spot can stand alone, each book builds on the characters, their relationships, and their stories.

#BookReview: Light of Dawn by Vannetta Chapman

18 Jul

Light of Dawn is an absorbing tale! This series has riveted me from the very beginning, and I quickly became invested in the characters and their journeys. Chapman enthralls readers with a chilling and conceivable story of survival, but even amid danger and despair, faith and hope shine. Light of Dawn is a thrilling conclusion to the Remnant trilogy, and I couldn’t put it down!

The Remnant Series is one I highly recommend reading in order. The prequel novella, Overshadowed, sets the stage for the catastrophic events that occur and subsequent novels continue the dramatic devastation that ensues.

Compelled by Carter’s desperate need for insulin and their God-given sense of duty, Shelby and Max answer the governor’s call and set out on a treacherous 600-mile journey, where they will experience the terrifying effects of unrestrained anarchy. If they have the faith and fortitude necessary to reach their destination, what will they find when they get there?
