|Prism by Rachel Moschell|
Wara Cadogan is a missionary in Bolivia, struggling to put her less than perfect past behind her, when she finds herself captured by a Muslim organization known as the Prism.
Alejo is one of the leaders of the Prism, among whom he fights against the many social injustices, but the discovery of a Bible in his native language might just be the beginning of something new.
When Alejo, sees Wara taken hostage by the Prism he knows what he must do. How far will he go to protect her, and at what cost?
This book kept me up late on weeknights, burning the midnight oil! Filled with well-rounded characters, so real that you can't help but believe they are living people, well conveyed descriptions, and plenty of action, Prism brought Bolivia to life right before my eyes.
One of the things that really stands out in this book is the question, how far would you go for your faith? There are devoted Muslims who believe they are paying the highest tribute possible to Allah setting off bombs, killing many innocents among the targeted on one end of the spectrum. And a Christian missionary family that struggles with whether they should fight for what is right at the risk of their ministry.
Prism is a kaleidoscope of colorful characters, my favorite probably being Wara, because of her vulnerability and personal struggles. Alejo was a character that really grew on me as the story progressed and as I got to know him better, and really came to respect his strong sense of determination to stand up for what was right. If I were to tell you about what I liked about each of the characters we would be here all day!
Another reason I liked this book was that I am always fascinated by books about missionaries :)
Overall, Prism is a well-written, heart-pounding read, with spot-on descriptions. I would highly recommend it to pretty much everyone, especially lovers of Christian suspense. This is definitely a five star read. And I eagerly await the next in the series, Reverb.
I actually bought this book for kindle on Amazon.com and was then requested to do a review by the author. I was not required to give a positive review, but only to state my honest opinions. Thank you!
