Kiss of the Sun: a thriller

27208831Kiss of the Sun by R. K. Jackson is a twisty, turny thriller that always leaves the reader guessing. The characters are smart and interesting, and the setting is vibrant. Most of it (especially a vivid description of a chase through an underground cave) kept me on the edge of my seat.

However, as much as I liked the book, the second half of it didn’t interest me as much as the first. The first half was well-paced and the buildup made the book impossible to put down. The second half, on the other hand, seemed rushed. In fact, in some places, I wondered in parts were missing. It’s not that the book was confusing, but more that it was too hurried. When I finished reading, I walked away feeling cheated.

Maybe my reaction stems from the fact that I did not read the previous book in this series. Because I enjoyed the setting and characters of Kiss of the Sun so much, I do intend to read the first book.

[I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.]

Books? Coffee? Separately, they're great, but combine them and - WOW! I'm a fifty-something bookaholic who's addicted to fiction. All kinds of fiction. All of my reviews are my own opinion. I do not sell my reviews or review for money.
