Book Review of the Day - Laura E. Reeve

It is rare that a sequel is as compelling as the first book in a series, but VIGILANTE by Laura E. Reeve is that rare exception. The story features a kick-butt female heroine, Major Kedros, and a wonderful supporting cast, in a series of adventures that keep the reader turning pages throughout.

In particular, I admire how Reeve was able to split the main characters into three separate groups, each facing its own obstacles. She intertwines their stories brilliantly, tying up loose ends nicely to create a heart-stopping conclusion. It's like getting three exciting plot lines for the price of one.

I look forward to the next novel in the series, and can't wait to see how Major Kedros's character develops over time.
