5 excellent stars is putting this debut in my top 5 for the year!

Thank you Netgalley and Matthew FitzSimmons for a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

To say I was blown away by this book would be an understatement. To say I was in awe that it was a debut would also be an understatement. The plot was complicated yet easily followed. The characters were deep and I felt an instant connection with them. The twists and turns were flawless and “got me” with every one. There are quite a bit of names introduced in the first few chapters, but once you make it through that you are in for the ride of your life. This book had constant action and suspense. I’m not usually one for political thrillers but this book was so addicting I might have to reconsider. Don’t even think about it, just read this book. You won’t be disappointed in the least. I am craving the next in the series, Poisonfeather, and that really says a lot, as it has been some time that I have found a book to be that intriguing. Bravo Matthew FitzSimmons, and keep up the excellent work! I honestly can’t say enough good things about this book. GO BUY IT!!! I received a free copy from Netgalley but will be purchasing a copy for my collection, it was THAT good.
