Turbulence ~ Review

Turbulence
A Kennedy Stern Christian Suspense Novel #5
By Alana Terry

Kennedy Stern is ready to celebrate Christmas and this year she's going to spend it in Alaska with her roommate Willow and Willow's parent. At least that is the plan until their plane is hijacked en-route. As Kennedy experiences yet another traumatic event she finds herself in an uncomfortable situation as she comes face-to-face with the possibility that she and Willow might not survive. Is she ready to die? And what about Willow?

As Kennedy struggles with how she has let her best friend and roommate down, she has to face the doubts she herself has. Will she get another chance to share with Willow the most important truth in her life?

Turbulence is another fast paced suspense novel from Alana Terry in which Kennedy has to face a situation in which she has no control.  One would expect the possibility of turbulence when flying, but for Kennedy the turbulence is a matter of the mind and the soul.

At 200 pages this is a fast and engaging book and not so long that staying up for the conclusion won't keep you up until dawn is coloring the horizon (unless you start it after midnight).  And the motivation for the hijacking is not what one normally reads in a book (the reason won't be revealed here).  This book is recommended to those who like a bit of suspense with a satisfying conclusion that leaves the reader waiting for the next book in the series.  If you have not read the previous books that is okay, this book is a perfect introduction to the series and Kennedy.  Nothing is giveaway to spoil the previous books and the story is complete without relying on the reader have that knowledge to move the story forward.

I was provided an Advanced Reader Copy of this book by the author for review purposes - a review positive or otherwise was not required. All opinions expressed are my own.


About the Book:
Facing doubts and terror at forty thousand feet.

It's been another grueling semester at Harvard, and Kennedy can hardly wait to take a break from her premed studies for some much-needed rest and relaxation at her roommate's homestead in rural Alaska.

Unfortunately, Kennedy's great arctic adventure might come to a crashing halt before it even begins.
