The Scorpion's Nest by Nate Granzow

Had a little trouble getting into this book.  At first I didn’t think I was going to like it.  The setting was, frankly, a bit boring.  I didn’t think I was going to be able to associate myself with any of the main characters.  But that changed.  As I got further in I began to appreciate more where the author was going with the story.  I began to love the plot and towards the middle it turned into a page turner for me.

This is written in a style that isn’t one of my favorites.  I think the action should have been shared with the front of the book but I totally get why the author did it the way he did.  In the end, I really like this book.  It definitely lived up to its name and I certainly appreciate more the author’s style.
