Series: Jed Patrick, Book Two
Kill Devil is the sequel to Centralia. I highly recommend you read the previous book before you read this one if you haven’t already, otherwise you will be extremely confused.
Check out my review for Centralia.
If you know anything about me, you know that I have anticipated this to release. This is a fast-paced read and I enjoyed it. I thought Centralia was great, Kill Devil is even better.
This series is perfect for the Jason Bourne/Bourne Identity fan. The book picks up exactly where the previous book leaves off. They had started over with new names, new location, and a new life. Just as things begin to calm down and Jed believes they truly can start over, men from the CIA break-in and threaten his wife and daughter. This only proves that no matter what, his family will never be truly safe until he can finally eliminate the agency that is set on hunting him down.
Jed will do anything to make sure his family stays safe. He doesn’t know whether it’s safer to keep his family by his side or to send them into hiding. However, Jed is determined to find a way to use the classified information that he possesses to take down the Centralia Project. Except he soon learns that in order to eliminate Centralia, he will have to compromise his own values. As events occur and danger escalates, Jed doesn’t know whether there’s anything anymore or even who to trust- including his own senses.
I absolutely enjoyed this sequel. It’s one of those books that is really hard to describe without spoiling because so much happens! It’s edgy and keeps you on your toes. You’re constantly trying to figure out what’s actually happening and who is telling the truth. I found myself constantly flipping through the pages just to find out what happens next. There were so many twists and turns that I never expected.
It also deals with a lot of spiritual themes. Jed is a believer in Jesus Christ, but he soon forgets who he really is and belongs to. Will Jed surrender his life to Christ?
Jed’s eight-year-old daughter, Lily, is probably one of my favorite characters. This little girl has been through so much. No matter how much torture she goes through and how scared she is, she has a strong faith in God. She encourages Jed and those around her in her faith and is a big part of the story.
We also get to meet new characters. I loved getting to know Tiffany and can’t wait to see if she’ll appear in other books. She has an interesting story that I’d love to know more about and whether or not she finds God herself.
The story is far from finished and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Hopefully, there’ll be another book in the series coming.
