Book Review: Blood Covenant, by Lisa Harris
Click here to read a sample.This book was easy to read, and it was fairly interesting. I enjoyed it, although it isn't necessarily a book I would have picked up on my own. This book is the second in a series, but I was still able to follow it without needing any additional info. Although the description sounds exciting, the main theme to the story was the romantic attraction/budding romance between Dr. Ryan and Nick, the pilot.
When fighting erupts between government forces and renegade Ghost Soldiers deep within the Republic of Dhambizao, thousands are forced to leave their homes. Dr. Paige Ryan, who works with Volunteers of Hope International, is sent to lead a team to set up a refugee transit site—where the immediate needs for shelter, water, sanitation, and food are critical. Nick Gilbert, a bush pilot for Compassion Air, joins the team to help fly supplies in and out of the area.
With the refugee camp already experiencing overcrowding, raids, and uprisings, a group of American mountain climbers is attacked by the Ghost Soldiers. Paige’s medical team responds immediately, rescuing survivors and taking them into the camp. When it’s discovered that one of the trekkers is carrying an infectious disease, the harrowing conditions of the camp are forgotten.
In desperate need of vaccines and the Ghost Soldiers blocking the only road out until their demands for amnesty are met, it won’t be long before the disease is out of control … and there is nowhere to run.
It didn't leave me breathless with anticipation for the next book, but it was a good read. If you like stories with a missions backdrop, this is the book for you!
I received this book for free from the publisher, Zondervan, in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to give a positive review, and my thoughts on this book are purely my own opinion.
