Only twice had she set foot inside the building since the massacre. The first time had been just a month after the tragedy .. . . The second time she had returned to the scene of the crime had been two days ago when she forced herself to enter the building to check on the temporary office for the SEAL team. The counselor she had seen in the months after the shooting had encouraged her to face her fears, but now . . . Riley wasn’t sure she was ready to face them after all.
Caught up in a hostage situation that is hauntingly familiar, Riley Palmetta once more finds her life hanging in the balance. What starts out as a well-organized and highly intensive training course for the prevention of random acts of terror quickly turns into a real-life nightmare of suspense and intrigue that will test the faith and finely honed skills of Tristan Crowther and his elite group of LDS Navy SEALS. For Tristan, this is not only a race to save lives; it is a deeply personal mission that moves relentlessly toward an irreversible crisis. And life — as well as love — is on the line.
This book was so slow and boring until the very end when it finally picked up. I didnt really care for the narrator either. I think it is pretty far-fetched to think that a Navy Seal Team would be called in to do such training rather than local police enforcement, but I know she did it to create a story around that characters she already has etc. I also dont get why all the big secrets about Riley being there the day of the shooting. The only reason I finished this book was because I had nothing else to read at the time. I wouldnt really recommend this book unless you are reading the rest of the series and dont want to skip it... though honestly, you dont miss much by skipping it. Like several other books so far by this author two people fall madly in love over a couple weeks and then at the end of the book they get married. The last couple chapters are this book's only saving grace.
I enjoyed the story of this audible book, so I gave it 3 stars. I would have given it 4 stars if it was not for the narrator. She read way to fast, and runs sentences together. At times it was hard to figure out who was talking, because she did not change her voice tones, even between a man or woman. I found myself taking a deep breaths for her. It was hard to stick with the book and I just couldn’t relax and enjoy the story. I hope she has not narrated any of the other Saint Squad Series because I want to listen to them, and I do not think I could do another one with this narrator.
I enjoy reading Traci’s books (some more than others). I liked the story and characters. Totally recommend this book.
One of my favorite LDS authors be the narrator read way to fast, sometimes not taking a breath between characters. Her southern drawl was awful. For the book it’s self, I was not disappointed.
Traci Hunter Abramson has done it again! Lockdown tackles the difficult subject of school shootings and I was impressed with how the author handled this topic with such sensitivity.
From the first page, I was wrapped up in the characters and had to find out what was going to happen next. I'm starting to think that Traci's books should come with warning labels: Do not open unless you have a few hours to spare!
This was one of the most boring books I have ever read. The first 1/3 of the book was mostly spent in the girls apartment with Tristin bringing take out food.
This book was exciting from start to finish! I enjoyed getting to know the characters, and I couldn't put it down. My 15 year-old son read it and really enjoyed it as well, so it has an appeal to teenagers as well as adults. Be sure to add this to your list of 'Summer must-reads!!'
This book I couldn't put down! I finished in less than 24 hours. Just another amazing book by Traci Abramson. I love the suspense and the romance. It's everything I love about a book all rolled into a neat package. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It's one of my favorites
