The book was a bit intimidating for me as it felt very long and at times I didn’t understand what was being said. However in the midst of the story emerges strength, trust and a road to faith. The characters are well defined and promise readers plenty of action. I did like how the author presents a story that not only gives us a look at a fantasy world but opens the doors to see beneath the surface.

At first glance I wasn’t too sure about the book but determination and commitment kept me going. After all the author gave everything to the story and it shows with details that help readers imagine being right there as the battle of good vs evil commences. I loved this quote in the book that says, “the Rescuer is sovereign. He helps us deal with the consequences of our action.” We have free choice. When we make a choice that may lead us astray, God allows us to deal with the consequences. It is not to punish us but to help us grow.

If you follow Connor closely in this adventure you will witness him continuing to pray. Those prayers are very familiar as scriptures from the Bible are recognizable. Fans of this genre will enjoy this book as the author does a great job of keeping characters interesting and the story line adventurous.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.

What an amazing conclusion to the Lightraider Academy trilogy! Kudos to James R. Hannibal for creating this rich, complex world from a board game. I have never played the game but the books make me want to investigate it so relive the adventure again.

The trilogy needs to be read in order because it is one continuous fast-paced, faith-driven battle against the dark force. Faith lessons that the Lightraider cadets learn from the masters ring true and are very applicable. The cadets, once again, go out on missions two by two and I enjoyed getting to know Aaron and Samar who are newer characters to the plot. The romance between Connor and Kara is sweet, protective, but fraught with doubt because they are constantly pulled apart by various missions. Connor, Teegan, Kara, Lee, and Zel's third person voices mingle with Valshadox the dragon's voice to create a panoramic view of this epic final battle of good triumphing over evil.

It's a bit of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter set in a world of dragons and supernatural powers. It's a powerful allegory with unforgettable characters - a must-read if you're a fan of YA fantasy. I received a complimentary copy courtesy of Enclave Escape via Celebrate Lit Tours and was under no obligation to post a positive comment. All opinions are my own.

I was a little wary going into this book because I'd never read a book by this author before. Thankfully, my worries were for nothing.
Starting with the plot, I really liked it. The travel, intrigue, and race against time all combined to create this novel that I couldn't put down.
Despite everything I liked, I felt that some of the secondary characters were two-dimensional with names that were a bit too similar for me to keep apart. I would often stop because I ended up confused by the names.
All this said, Hannibal is definitely an author that I want to read more of.

When I was told I gave up too easily on James R. Hannibal's books I did not expect people to be so right!

A big reason I gave this book another chance is the author is a former Air Force pilot and I'm a sucker for the Air Force (#AirForcebrat), I've seen raving reviews from friends on his books, another reason is the back cover of "The Paris Betrayal" grabbed my attention AND didn't give spoilers that would cause me to be disappointed in the book.

I got my copy in the mail and not three hours later I flipped the last page and found that it is one of the best books I've read in a while. Surprising, but so exciting! And, the suspense kept me guessing, I called one or two little things but most of the time I was close to biting my nails. The plotline of a pandemic, bioweapon, and other things related to those didn't bother me with the way the topics were approached but you should still be warned that they do play a big part of the book and some people may not want to read this book yet.

Be Calix is not your everyday hero even for a spy thriller, his story is a new take on a CIA plotline, and just everything about him was AWESOME. I loved every bit of this book and I already want to reread it!

I highly recommend you pre-order your copy NOW, you must read this book, and why not support the author with a pre-order now?!

As for me, I need to go fish my copies of Hannibal's other books from my depths of to-be-read book piles and read them promptly.

I voluntarily received and reviewed a complimentary e/copy of this book which I received from the author/publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
