Nyah Parks is a 17 year old genius. After her father and brother were killed in a car accident that left her mother with brain damage, Nyah uses her computer hacking skills to hack into one of the top corporations in the world. She soon realizes that she's in danger and aborts her hack, but not before alerting those in charge. Not knowing who to trust and fearing for her life, Nyah turns to the one friend she's got. Together she and her friend find themselves in a virtual world that is filled with both danger and answers. Will it be enough?
I've not read a Ted Dekker book in several years, so picking up this one was a nice change. I was caught from the first page and kept turning pages - quickly - until the ending. The only reason I didn't finish it in one setting was because I fell asleep while reading in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Suspense is one thing that I've come to expect from a Ted Dekker book, and I was not disappointed. I kept wondering how things were going to happen. I did not see the twists and turns coming either. While this is the third book in the Outlaw Chronicles, it can be read independently of the others.
Both Nyah and Austin were searching. Their searches took them in different directions, but arrived at the same place eventually. Their questions were real and were things I've asked in my own life.
I received this book for free from Worthy Publishing for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of thrillers, Stephen King, Steven James, Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti
