I didn't know what to expect in a book that was not in the Jackson series but this book just further convinced me that Sellers is just a great writer.
One thing I liked about this book is the way the author explained each character by changing point of view; at first it was distracting, but then I realized how much it helped explain things & move the story along more quickly for the many twists and turns throughout.
Also, although some of the ideas are a bit crazy, everything that happens is believable, from the cult environment to the egg harvesting clinic. Even the reason behind Elizabeth's actions, as desperate as they are, seem believable given the details about her life. The only thing I might question is Carmichael's willingness to agree to Elizabeth's wild plan in the first place, but then, the author gives some background that makes it less difficult to suspend disbelief there as well.
I was a bit confused as to why the story started with Elizabeth when the story was more about Jenna (& Eric), but in the end it made sense because it was Elizabeth's desperation that was the basis for the rest of the story.
There was enough suspense that I was often unsure what would happen next, though the final ending wasn't entirely unpredictable.
In this Kindle version there were some typos, but they were few enough it didn't distract much; in fact, it seems like some of the typos may have been missed because the storyline at that point was so exciting it was easy to read right past them. :) There were a couple places where they forgot to change the font after writing the dates in italics, so entire pages were italicized, but it was easy enough to realize the mistake and just treat it as normal text.
I would definitely recommend this book. This one was hard to put down, and I don't find many books that have that effect on me.
The cult aspect of this and our main bad guy characters were just crazy enough to be believable. Our dear Jenna is just strong willed enough to be endearing, and Eric is such an amazing man who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time more often than anyone I've ever met.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good suspense story. There were a few gramatical errors, but not enough to take away from the content or aura of the novel.
