IRON: Review and Blog Tour

I’m happy to be participating in IRON‘s release tour!

Here’s a little bit about IRON

Enforcing justice comes with a price.

Detective Redwyn “Red” Deathan will stop at nothing to uncover those behind the ruthless kidnappings of multiple children. But things are not as they seem, and Red’s efforts are thwarted at every turn. With each discovery the danger grows, putting Red and the lives of those she cares about at risk. Can she reveal the mastermind’s identity before she herself becomes a target?

My Review

Iron by Madisyn Carlin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher/author. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a review. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Characters: The characters were one of my favorite parts of this novel. They all had such different personalities, and they all had human strengths and weaknesses. Red’s was my favorite out of the three perspectives. I loved Red’s bravery and dedication to her friends, Carter’s determination to protect Chamonix, and Chamonix’s strong faith.

Language: Clean.

Moral/theme: The goodness of God, trusting Him, and not trying to control everything were some themes Iron featured. I loved how strong the faith content was. We need more Christian fiction like this.

Plot: Plenty of action scenes, high stakes, and suspenseful moments kept me reading right along.

Romance: Clean.

Writing: Madisyn Carlin’s clear, descriptive writing worked so well for this book. I can’t wait to read more by her in the future.

Overall: Iron was an exciting read that I’d recommend to those who love Christian fiction, fairy-tale retellings, and non-magical fantasy. I need the rest of the series now!
