Have you ever started a book that you just didn't want to end? Well, this one is for you then! In this gripping tale, Brannan Callahan is concerned when she hears reports of a blizzard and a helicopter in her area is at risk of being caught up in it. The worst part is, the helicopter has a heart to get transported back to the hospital in order to save the life of an eyewitness for a child sex trafficking ring. The adventures begin there and do not stop until the end...and I think we'll read more in the future!

This book has so many great elements about it. I loved the adventures of Brannan as a female park ranger who did SAR helicopter missions. I loved the whole story behind the heart and impending transplant (I'm a cardiac nurse!). I liked trying to figure out the mystery amongst all the characters involved. The story line with the small girls who were being brutalized made this book so much stronger. I was roped in from the prologue where we meet Rogue (love the name! So fitting) and his adventure as a US Marshall. There is also a bit of a love story in the book. So many beautiful elements that I promise you, you won't want to miss reading this. There are Scriptures quoted throughout the book as well, in case you'd like to know that up front.

I highly recommend this edge of your seat read. It goes fast but I wouldn't allow myself to finish it too terribly quickly! I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

This book completely grabbed my attention at the start. However, I am not a fan of romance story lines. This book runs the romance story line in conjunction with the VERY heavy theme/topic of child s%x trafficking. I was left with great distaste for the two story lines being worked simultaneously (not to mention that there was some overly sappy "warm fuzzies" reactions between Brannan and Rourke, the main characters. Ugh.

There were also some obviously weak areas of writing. For example, Brannan finds two of the children who were trafficked and it doesn't occur to her, at all, that they might be part of s%x trade, even when she hears their captor's names; names that she overheard the congressman mention when he spoke secretly on his cell phone in the hall. Not at all believable to the reader.

I feel this book had great potential, but was somewhat spoiled by the romance that was written into it.

I really enjoyed this book except that I didn't care for some of the details she included (since it was a sex trafficking ring). The book in itself was amazing and how she tied everything together at the end was really neat.

I always get a thrill when I feel like I've stumbled upon a real gem in the vast collection of Christian fiction. With so many books available that I could spend my time reading, I always appreciate it when I come across one that I will recommend over and over again. Let me tell ya....Deliver Us From Evil was such a book. The suspense was top-notch, the action intense, and the romance.....oh, the romance (giddy smile) took my breath away.

I have to admit, though, that the beginning of the book was a little slow. I could sense that the heart-pounding action was within my grasp, but it took a little longer than I wanted for it to arrive. Once it did, it was all downhill from there. :o) I literally had to make myself put it down at midnight so I could get some sleep!

I have no doubt that I will be reading more of Robin's books in the future, including the rest of this series. There was a little teaser at the end that leads right into the next book in the series, Fear No Evil. Brannon's close friend, Lincoln, was one of my favorite characters in the book, and I'm anxious to see what will happen to him next.

So in case you're still wondering whether or not you should try Robin's books for yourself, let me end the suspense for you right now.... Yes!!! You should! You should go to the store right away and get a copy for yourself right now! :o) You'll have it read in no time flat, I promise you!
