The Survivor by DiAnn Mills was a great read. Full of mystery and suspense with a wonderful love story between the main characters, Kariss and Tigo. Kariss is a fiction writer with a past history of getting herself into trouble while writing a book. This time, Dr. Amy Garrett, approaches her to write her own horrible abduction story, an unsolved case, into a novel. Exactly why is she wanting to do this is Kariss main question. But she is intrigued by the story and is led into a world of danger. Her former love and FBI agent, Tigo, is pulled into this case for several reasons, but his love for her is never failing. Will the two of them be able to resolve their previous issues? God certainly has His hands on their lives to work our their problems and bring out the truth.
It did seem that Kariss put herself in more danger than she needed to…she is hardheaded and would not listen to Tigo’s advise about being safe. But if she had, there would not have been much of a story line. Because a lot of the danger and trouble she got herself into was because of her stubbornness in not following directions. I did get a little bit mad at her at times and thought “oh my goodness, just stay inside and do what you are told!” But it was still a great book and I enjoyed it. It was hard to put down and I had a hard time trying to “figure it all out” before the end of the book. I like books that keep me guessing. And this book did just that.
But, don’t make the same mistake I made. I read this book first, not realizing it was a sequel to The Chase. There were a lot of previous situations that happened in the first book that would have been very helpful to know while reading this book. I can’t wait to go back and read The Chase and see how all this began. So, please read The Chase first and then hurry and grab The Survivor and read it. You’ll be glad you did.
I will be ordering both books for our church Media Center soon.
I received a free digital download of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
