Review in the Timpanogos Times


I just received a book review from my local paper the Timpanogos Times. And I am most pleased at what the reviewer Marissa Walker wrote. After saying she had just read the book, she opens with...

"I was afraid to read this book."

I don't know why I like that but I do. Continuing, she writes quite a number of things I greatly appreciated such as...

"It begins fast paced and draws you in immediately..."

"I've read the history portrayed in 'Heroes of the Fallen', but I have never felt of its true nature until I read this book."

"it's not predictable..."

"It shows the Gadianton robbers, they honestly creeped me out, but in a good way."

and finally.


"I found myself rooting for characters and even feeling antsy. You know you have a good book in your hands when you feel the emotions. All in all, I recommend reading this book. If you are as picky as I am, you might find out you love it. I did!"

I have never met Marissa and didn't actually know what to expect about her doing the review but I want to publicly thank her for the kind words.
