Book Review: Poison

Poison is the second in the "Bloodline Trilogy" written by Jordyn Redwood. The novel begins several years after Keelyn Blake's stepfather murdered her mother and two siblings, claiming what appeared to be demonic influence. As the story begins, it appears that Keelyn is successfully moving beyond her horrific past. She is in love, has a solid career, and is looking forward to beginning a family. 

However, her past catches up to her. Her niece is mysteriously left in her care with a strange warning not to try to find the girl's mother, Keelyn's sister Raven, another survivor of her stepfather's murderous rampage. Suddenly, years later, law enforcement officers from that fateful day begin dying, and Keelyn and her future husband are pushed to the limit by an evil character that seems intent on destroying a lot of lives, including theirs. The race against the clock begins to find the person responsible. In a story full of misdirection and uncertainty, the reader is given a glimpse into the lives of two people whose budding relationship is put to the ultimate test. Keelyn is forced to relive the most horrific experience of her life, while her fiance is forced to decide whether to reveal a horrific secret about his own past. 

The biblical concept of genuine, sacrificial love is places front and center, and Redwood makes no secret about the connection between her characters and the power of the Gospel. The story is fast-paced, well written, exciting, and thought-provoking. An excellent work in the field of Christian fiction. 

I give Poison 5 out of 5 stars.  

I received a free copy of this book from Kregel in exchange for a fair and honest review.
