This book was very thrilling! The author had a great way of describing the characteristics of his characters as well as the situations they found themselves in. Vincent Ward was so inspired by art that he was determined to do anything to protect them from shootings, thieves, pirate raids and much more!
I love how the author made Vincent, the main character, have so many close encounters with his enemies. It really adds on to the “What’s going to happen next?!” feeling throughout the book. The very thought through and descriptive observations that Vincent made under such nerve wreaking circumstances made it very relate-able and nerve wreaking.
Jennifer, Vincent’s partner, was a nice touch to the story as well. Her bold and persistent personality helped balance Vincent’s daring one. I feel that it wouldn’t have been nearly as interesting, had the author decided for Vincent to be the only main character.
I do think, however, that Vincent’s childhood memory involving his parents, should have been more personal by it being a little more drawn out. It not being in much detail left me a little confused as to how he was so drawn to art. But the insane, adrenaline-pumping type actions he took anyway, kind of made up for it. In the end, this was an excellent book.
