The Pretender – Saving Luke picks up moving right along with Jarod’s mission to find the missing boy and discover who his parents really are. Previously in The Pretender – Rebirth, Jarod had escaped The Centre and the beautiful Miss Parker and her crew, hard on the chase to find Jarod. Stopping at nothing to find him, Jarod must stay five steps ahead and keep them guessing.
The Pretender has a heart of gold and fights for the “little guy” who can’t fight for himself in all of his missions. This mission of saving Luke is no different. Luke is a young boy who mysteriously disappeared, and Jarod is dead set on saving him. Having been taken from his own parents so many years ago, our hero feels compelled to find out the truth behind the disappearance of Luke and help bring the boy home to his family before it’s too late.
Saving Luke is action packed and a super fast paced page turner that, once again, I was not able to put down. Points of views are switched seamlessly, giving the reader information and the back-story as needed. With Jarod’s brilliant mind, I was amazed over and over again with his clever ways to escaping his hunters. Leaving his psychiatrist, Sydney, clues along the way, there isn’t any telling what is going to happen from chapter to chapter.
The Pretender – Saving Luke is filled with elements of fear, rage, guilt, emotion, lies, deceit, cover-ups, and, of course, the very colorful characters all come together perfectly for an edge-of-your-seat read. This book has the depth and quality required to make it as a best seller. Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle make one hell of a story come to life on these pages and without their brilliant minds, Jarod’s mind would be nothing. Saving Luke, the second volume in this series, has proven to be better than the first. Keep it coming, fellas;, I am excited to see what is next for The Pretender! 5 Stars!
