I finished up The Rush of Betrayal: Deception by Shawn Wickersheim (one of my favorite indie authors!)
It took me a couple of days to get drawn into this book. The chapters jump around between so many characters and points of view that I wasn't sure who the main character was and/or who I was supposed to be cheering for. But the more I read, the more I began to realize that was done purposefully.
I really enjoy the mystery behind the work. Even by the end of the book, I wasn't quite sure what the villain's goal was, or even if he was the true villain.
The writing is excellent, the dialogue is realistic and flows smoothly, and once I caught on to the plot, I was carried along quite quickly.
My sole complaint is just a personal one. I have a very difficult time reading books or watching movies where bad situation after bad situation happen to a single person. I realize that this is moving the plot along and I understand that he is being targeted, but it's so hard for me to read! I found myself cringing as I read! Poor guy!
It was a wonderful read and I'm anxious to read the next in the series -- although I have to take a break as my heart hurts too much for the main character.
