A Very Enjoyable Read: Reader's Review The Returned
Truthfully, action-adventure is not my preferred genre of reading, but this book is just fabulous. The character development in the beginning is not tedious, as it very well could have been, but rather light-hearted. I had the feeling that something very important was going to happen, but that I was being eased into it and not thrust headfirst into complications.
Very well written story about race relations, prejudice, and trust, with an exciting premise and believable developments. I definitely recommend this!
