Adrenaline Rush- Cindy Hogan
Description: This is a break off series of the Watched series-Enjoy
A madman with a mission is kidnapping groups of thrill-seeking high school seniors across the country, and it’s up to Christy to stop him.
To do so, she must take on a fearless alter ego and infiltrate a group of adrenaline junkies bent on pushing life to the limit. Death-defying stunts are only the beginning: two groups fit the profile, and Christy must discover the real target before it’s too late.
If she chooses the wrong group, more people will disappear. But choosing right puts her as the prime target—with no guarantee that she’ll get out alive.
Young Adults, teens and adults will love this exciting suspenseful adventure with a dash of romance. You won't want to put it down.
My Thoughts: Adrenaline Rush is a fun read. Christy is a not-so-adventure seeking teenage spy (which is kind of funny in its own right), who must pretend to be Misha, a thrill-seeking-adrenaline junky. Her mission is to join a group of teenage daredevils and get herself kidnapped. I loved reading about how she manages to join the groups under surveillance even though she really doesn't want to do any of the stunts they are into.
Once she is kidnapped, some of the story did lag. I was a bit confused as to how anyone as obviously psychotic as her kidnapper could be allowed to stick around. However, I do think people might pay for his "assets". While somethings about Christy's eventual escape seemed unbelievable, it was still fascinating enough that I couldn't put the book down.
It was not until about half-way through that I realized their was a Christian message to the book. That was the first time Christy mentioned anything about faith, which I liked, but wish it would have been through the whole book.
For those who don't like books that even mention drugs and alcohol, this may not be for you. Christy is often placed in situations where other teenagers are drinking and there mentions of drugs. Neither of which does Christy take a part in, but they are a real part of her undercover mission.
I received this book through eBooks for Review in exchange for an honest review.
