“A THRILL RIDE . . . AS CURRENT AS TODAY’S FRONT-PAGE NEWS!” –Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author
A chill in the air.
Temps are dropping and time is running out.
In her new role as Emergency Operations Center director for Fairbanks, Alaska, Darcie Phillips prevents disasters. But none of her training can prepare her for the terror that’s coming.
As a cybersecurity specialist, Jason Myers is determined to ferret out any threats to the town he now calls home–and that includes his reckless brother and his ecoterrorist friends.
When an old woman’s wild prediction–widespread destruction as soon as the Fairbanks temperature falls to 26 below–hits national headlines, neither Darcie nor Jason sees a real risk to anything but tourism. Then the bodies start dropping.
Darcie is relying on her experience and intelligence to stop a killer; Jason is relying on God to guide the way. But they’ll have to work together to find the truth and prevent their Alaskan town from becoming a city of nightmares.
“An action-packed page-turner that . . . blew me away. If you like stories of intrigue, action, romance, and biblical hope, this is the story for you.” –Tracie Peterson, ECPA and USA Today best-selling author
In My Opinion
If you have ever been to Alaska, visited the state, or added it to your bucket list, you know it is a state filled with both beauty and danger. In 26 Below, Kimberley Woodhouse ramps up both elements with a romantic suspense that will keep you turning the pages until the very end (and then have you wanting the next book right away).
Jason is a flawed hero. He’s intelligent and protective, but he makes mistakes. Some he’s quick to realize and apologize for. Others he takes a little longer to wrestle with. When he meets Darcie, he immediately sees her capability and determination as well as the walls she’s built around herself. Darcie is a little tougher to connect with. She closed off. Even though she acknowledges this, her reasons for it carry some bitterness.
And then there is the suspense. As the days pass by and the temperature drops, the threat of danger for the people of Fairbanks becomes more a reality. At first, I was wishing for more urgency, but it came about halfway through the book.
The cyber threat is very real today, and Woodhouse did her research to bring authenticity to this story. The addition of the uncontrollable weather is a nice twist, and Alaska herself becomes another character. The faith element is also prevalent in this one.
