The whole book was so great but the last 140 pages had me
jumpin(g)through sentences so fast that I had to go back and re-read the paragraphs over again.
This is the kind of book I just love and hate at the same time. Love because it is so darn good and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Hate, because it is so good that I read it to fast and it is over, gone, done POOF!!! , and I don't want it to be over. Oh yes, something else. You brought the Lord throughout the whole book so beautifully that as Annie was fighting him and reaching out to him at the same time, you could identify with her easily.
I can hardly wait for the next one. I am utterly amazed at the skill and talent you have to put something like that together. Thank you.
This is a good enough suspenseful novel. The story is well woven and its conclusion is sound. Annie is a fleshed out heroine who has film-like visions of scenarios as they unfold in her head. However, Brink of Death is far from perfect. The main problem I had with this book is that it isn't a very clever thriller because I was able to figure things out before the heroine and other characters did. Also, the killer's identity is a tad disappointing. Once you've discovered who the killer is and you know where the climax is headed, there's no point reading further, is it? Still, I kept reading... and felt like I'd wasted my time. This is a Christian thriller where the heroine is supposed to discover Jesus by the time the book comes to an end.Read more ›
Told in Annie's engaging first person point of view (except for the prologue and the scattered scenes following the villain in third person), there are no wasted words. Every chapter leads you seamlessly into the next. Tight, suspenseful, and peppered with compelling details about forensic art, BRINK OF DEATH will keep you up waaaaaay past your bedtime. And the good news is it's book #1 in the Hidden Faces series (#2, STAIN OF GUILT available October 2004).
Without compromising the thrills, Brandilyn keeps her story clean, which is something Christian readers will appreciate. But this is also a book you could give to friends or relatives with no concern about hitting them over the head with its religious message. We're gently led to think about God as we follow Annie's story.
Final word? The characters in BRINK OF DEATH are REAL (no cardboard stereotypes here), and this series will win Brandilyn many more loyal fans, myself included.

She makes stupid decisions. Like calling 911 when she freaks out in the middle of the night, but not calling when the killer is right there.Published 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
