The series concludes with a fine political/military thriller ending. Anya and Sherdan are finally working together, but how far can that go? The intrigue, lies, and backstabbing reach the reality of our political expectations for the current culture. So, the blurb tells us:
With Utopia established but no longer under his control Sherdan finds himself with no where to go. Wanted dead by the British government and the new leader of Utopia, he must find a way to take back what’s rightfully his, but even his normal allies are wary of getting involved in this fight.
Can Anya keep him alive while convincing those who hate him to help? And even if they do, will the cost be worth it?
Sherdan’s Country is the third instalment in the Sherdan series and continues the roller-coaster ride of emotions and suspense as the super-humans Sherdan has created fight for independence and freedom.
This is a complex and intriguing read
The superhuman stuff is fun. The battles are fairly realistic without graphic violence. The bad guy becomes more stereotypical, but believable. The twists and turns still surprise. Overall, this is a very good read.
Spiritually the slide to mainline levels continues
Spiritual reality has left to be replaced with conventional Christian expectations. However, Jess still shows some real understanding of how the body of Christ differs from the organizational church. There is some very good stuff along with avoided opportunities for spiritual warfare and regenerational truth.
The tale remains clean but edgy. The relationships approach but never really touch titillation. The emotional rawness of the second book is resolved to a large extent.
All in all this is a very good book and a solid ending to an entertaining series. Jess Mountifield has given us an excellent addition to our libraries of Christian fiction.
