I reviewed the Expansion as well. It really is slowpaced but i guess cliffhanging is good for me , so i therefore rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.

My rating for the book would be 4.. It's not my type of genre.. So I took long to read the book.. For a thriller this book was too slow for me.

I didn't ready care for it. I thought that the plot was all over the place. But it was easy reading, not badly written. I would have like it to be a little bit more faster pace. 3/4

I liked the book it was really anticipating although I’m a fan of mostly romantic fiction it was pretty good to just sit and read

I've read a couple of posts and I am divided. Thriller is my go-to genre but I've read a couple of posts and some say it's not that good. Regardless, I should probably give it a try.

The first couple of chapters managed to pull me into the story very easily and I really liked the fact that I got to see Max's back story. This way you find out about his early life and also his parents. I did notice that there were numerous characters but once I got the names straight in my head it was very easy to follow and to keep up with who was who. All of the characters were intriguing and had their flaws which made them pretty realistic. I thought Karis was a great character and her part in the story made everything all the more interesting. I have to admit that I enjoyed the parts following Karis slightly more than Max. I'm guessing that in my case I just felt more of a connection to her character.

The story managed to keep my interest with plenty of intrigue and double dealings along the way. I liked the fact that there was a fairly slow build up to the main events but this definitely gave you a feel for the characters and built up a little bit of tension too. I really enjoyed learning more about Panama, especially the canal as I had pretty much zero knowledge beforehand. So it was actually fun to read about a place that I probably won't get the chance to visit. The scene is set well and for the most part my interest was kept there are a couple of slower parts where my attention may have strayed. However I was still very interested to see how everything would turn out in the end.

I read the sample, decided I really wanted to read it, and selected it...only to find it wasn't (any longer?) available in the U.S. I was so disappointed.

Creepy beginning but great ending. Sometimes the lessons learnt after reading the book is what matters. I will rate 3/4
