When we return to the life and world of Charles Jenkins we learn that, luckily, he has been exonerated. All should be well as the retired man focuses on his family, right? Well, that wouldn’t be much of a story. If you haven’t read book one and are looking for an edge of your seat espionage novel, start with The Eighth Sister. Then join me with The Last Agent.

I don’t know what I expected when I saw this lovely ARC on NetGalley. The concept was interesting and I liked the idea behind it but I’m not sure I was ready for the purely amazing read this book was.

The world of Driftwood is a strange place — it is where worlds come to die and as entire worlds are shrunk down in size and people are disappearing left and right everything is slowly coming to an end. Think of Driftwood as a story of a post-apocalyptic world…but with some of the worlds still in the middle of their own end. If you’re looking for an amazing fantasy read, be on the lookout for Driftwood which comes out August 14th, 2020. If you want to know more about the story and my reaction, read on but please be aware there may be tiny spoilers.

When I saw this book on the NetGalley website I was intrigued. Normally I reserve my horror reads for the fall time, when the theme seems to fit the weather. Still, a chance at an advanced reader copy for such an interesting story was something I couldn’t resist so I put the request in and was approved. I waited for a day that I felt ready to jump into the horror genre and here we are, talking about a book that took me on a wild ride and that surprised me.

This is a slight departure from my normal mystery reads because, while this is a mystery (surrounding murders) this book falls into the genre of Cozy Mystery. Let me quickly define this for anyone who doesn’t know what this means.

I admit, I’m always hesitant when it comes espionage stories. They can be so hit or miss but as I’ve read and enjoyed Dugoni’s other series, Tracy Crosswhite, I gave this one a go. And I was not disappointed.

  I know I’m terrible about posting reviews but as I get caught up in series books I always struggle about giving a proper review while avoiding spoilers. However, there is nothing terrible about book four in the Daniel Faust series and now, even months after reading them, I’m still obsessed. To the point that I went back through my copy to find favorite quotes and ended up re-reading the entire book anyway.

I feel like I should open this review like what you see at an AA meeting. “Hi, my name is Brittney and I am addicted to Craig Schaefer novels.”

 So, now that I’ve got that out of the way and finished all the Harmony Black books that are currently available I decided to go back to where it all began, the Daniel Faust series. And boy oh boy was I in for a treat.

 If you’ve gone this far into the series you know the trouble this following statement means: Diehl and Nadine are teaming up to take out Vigilant Lock. To make matters worse? Panic Cell, another team of Vigilant Lock, is coming for Harmony and her team. as well.

 What does this mean? Pure, damn chaos.

 As with any series, the farther into it we go the harder it is to review without spoilers so read at your own risk.  I’m trying to avoid them I really am but it’s hard to do that when you want to talk about how great the book is.
