My Thoughts:  

Upon getting a copy of this ebook, I had very high expectations. Alana Terry has very quickly become a favorite author, one who writes very different mystery/suspense tales. I must admit that Alana did not let me down with this book in her Alaskan Refuge series. Alana's unique talent in dealing with controversial subjects tackled in a respectful but meaningful way, keep the reader glued to the page. 

The characters are described in such a realistic, detailed fashion that you become so entranced in their lives that you tremble in fear as the story progresses. I felt extreme dislike for the two faced members of the cult as they abused their powers, misusing  it in such a strong , despising way. Jade is a young woman who does not deserve what life has dealt her with. I did love the way the author described the healing of deep hurts, by a community that comes together, prays and believes in miracles. The presence of God is evident in those who trust in the Lord for the strength to overcome evil..

The plot is well developed and moves at an unbelievable quick pace. Just when you think that the danger is passed, you turn the page to find another unexpected rock in the path . This book is definitely a fast paced psychological thriller that had my pounding as I felt every challenge and frightening situation deep within me. 

Using Alaska as a setting was a wise move. A cold , vast area fits the theme of unending danger, where you can not see any positive ending in sight. 

Don't miss reading this adventure where true to life situations send you into a world of a cult that many of us have no knowledge of. 

This book was received from CelebrateLit. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and my own.

About the Author:

Alana is a pastor’s wife, homeschooling mom, self-diagnosed chicken lady, and Christian suspense author. Her novels have won awards from Women of Faith, Book Club Network, Grace Awards, Readers’ Favorite, and more. Alana’s passion for social justice, human rights, and religious freedom shines through her writing, and her books are known for raising tough questions without preaching. She and her family live in rural Alaska where the northern lights in the winter and midnight sun in the summer make hauling water, surviving the annual mosquito apocalypse, and cleaning goat stalls in negative forty degrees worth every second.     

More from Alana:

  While my childhood was spent in the lower 48 states, my husband and I moved to Alaska and this beautiful state has now become the place I call home. Even though adjusting to rural living (we moved to a town with only 400 residents) took some getting used to, I have grown to love everything about Alaska.
In fact, I love it so much, I thought to myself, “I want to share the beauty of where we live with my readers.” And the best way I could think of to do that was to write a three-book, standalone series showcasing some of the wonderful things about Alaska living.
However, it wouldn’t be an Alana Terry series without a lot of exciting, fast-paced suspense readers have grown to love. Identity Theft, Termination Dust, and Frost Heaves are filled with action, adventure, mystery and even a little bit of romance.
Three different stories. All set in my beautiful state of Alaska. With all the action, adventure, suspense, and underlying hope that readers have come to love.
One reviewer described Frost Heaves as “… full of suspense, covered with faith and truth, and sweetened with a touch of romance.”
I wrote these books to share my love of Alaska as well as God’s love and redemption with others. And I hope you’ll turn the last page satisfied, but ready for more.
If the Alaska Refuge Christian Suspense series is your introduction to Alana Terry books, you’ve read all three in the series (in any order), and you’re ready for more action, I’d like to introduce you to Kennedy Stern. Read Unplanned, Book 1 in the 9 book series. Once you get started, I’m sure you won’t want to put it down.
