A strange man has created a group of people that he uses to involve more people and work towards an unknown end. Markus Haas has been “recruited,” but he aims to stop the man and break The String.
I was intrigued by the description of the book, and once I started reading it, I didn’t want to stop. The characters, action, and plot all came together and made for a great read, one that keeps you reading because you don’t want to wait to see what will happen next.
The descriptions of people are subdued, and most of the characters seem like people you’d meet everyday. Their personalities are gradually revealed, so you get to learn more about them as the story progresses. As they face problems, you get an opportunity to wonder what you’d do if you were in their shoes. Though being in their exact situation isn’t something you want to think about, you do start looking at how you would react if someone tried to coerce you.
I really enjoyed this book. Though I wanted to find out how it would turn out, I didn’t want it to end. I hope that there is more like it on the way.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
