Before Prophet Drews can have a future, he must first put his past to rest. Prophet is a man on the edge, and he’s pulling Tom Boudreaux, his partner on the job and in life, right over with him. When his old CO calls in a favor, Prophet asks Tom to join the off-the-grid rescue. But the mission raises all of Prophet’s old ghosts: CIA assassins, the terrorist Sadiq, and, most importantly, John – traitor, former teammate, and Prophet’s first love.
To help bury those ghosts for good, Prophet and Tom gather the members of Prophet’s former SEAL team…and a spook named Cillian who’s been tailing Prophet for years. In the process, Prophet is forced to face his team’s shifting loyalties, ghosts who refuse to stay dead, and, scariest of all, his own limitations.
With everyone’s lives in danger, Prophet and Tom must unravel a tangled knot of secrets, including their own. Prophet must decide how much to reveal to Tom while Tom must decide how far he’s willing to go to help Prophet lay his ghosts to rest.
I am losing track of all the ways this series has quickly become one of my favorite. The writing is great, the characters are so rich, and the story perfectly fits the characters as well as keeps the reader enthralled.
Tommy and Prophet are such interesting and robust men. They are these alpha males yet they are both so broken. They are strong yet that strength is rooted in tender need. It is fascinating how truly romantic they are within such intense framework. I love imagining their story as it unfolds and as new bits and pieces of their personalities and histories are revealed. Parts of this story almost broke me because they were so hurtful to two men I have been utterly captivated by. But so much of this story was fantastic in the way it sucked me and made me a part of these men and a part of the action.
I NEED more from these men because I NEED them to be happy and healthy and together forever. I NEED to know how this ends. I NEED Prophet to find closure. I NEED so much and it amazes me how quickly this author created a world that I NEED so badly.
Adam North has really become these characters. He still misses the mark on some of the softer emotions, but at this point that is negligible because his voice has become the voice I need to hear for this series. Good job.
