Review: Autumn of Fear (Fearless series) by Glede Browne Kabongo


Print Length: 391 pages
Publisher: Brownestar Publishing (March 27, 2018)

From Goodreads.com: An ambitious girl with a promising future, a charming manipulator with a diabolical secret—the truth will destroy them both 

When college student Abbie Cooper wakes up in a hospital bed barely alive after a violent assault, her world comes crashing down. She has no memory of the attack or her assailant, and no idea how she ended up in the Emergency Room. 

As she grapples with the horrific aftermath, Abbie is determined to uncover the truth about what happened that night. But to catch a monster, she must piece together the events in the weeks leading up to the assault. Why did charming senior Spencer Rossdale take a sudden interest in her, and why did her quiet study group partner Justin Tate want to meet with her alone? 

The deeper Abbie digs into the events leading up to that fateful night, the more she unravels a stunning web of lies that stretch back decades. Revealing them will change everything but the truth is the least of Abbie’s problems. A vicious predator is watching her, and he’s willing to kill to protect his secret.

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Let me begin by saying that this is the first time I have read anything by this author, so you do not need to have read the first book in her Fearless series to enjoy this one. While there are references made to things that happened to Abbie prior, it doesn't take anything away from this story. 

At first, I was a little leery of the set up of this story. There is a bit of back and forth between "before" the attack and "after", and it occasionally became confusing. However, once this story begins to get moving, it takes off - fast. There were so many occasions where I thought I knew who was behind the attack, or I had figured out some other part of the plot only to be (pleasantly) surprised when the author suddenly went in a different direction entirely. 

If you enjoy well written and engaging psychological thrillers, then I am sure you will enjoy this story as well! I would read more from this author (and in fact have already added the first book to my to-be-read pile). 

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
