Amber's Thoughts

Reviews and updates from Amber Foxx, author of the Mae Martin Psychic Mystery Series



A Woman of Action

It’s quite a skill to write a thriller in first person and somehow make the reader feel the protagonist might not make it. This installment in the series is full of surprises and extraordinary settings, from a cruise ship to deserted islands to an island that’s not what it seems to be.


 Kate’s character arc is strong as she matures through the series. She's more self-aware, more confident, and still a risk-taker, a woman of action.  Her humor in the middle of life-threatening danger is natural, not contrived or showy.  She has the courage to fight her enemies while remaining unwilling to take their lives—even when she could. Often it’s her ingenuity that helps her survive, not just weapons or daring. I can always count on Berkom for a book that will totally engage me. Her writing is tight and perfectly paced every time.
