Review: Prism by Rachel Moschell


Prism by Rachel Moschell
2010



About the book:

He wanted to bring light to the world, but knew that along with it would come darkness... 
Alejo is a leader in the Prism, a Muslim organization bent on fighting social injustice in his native Bolivia. His passion for God's justice has always led him far away from the church and its dark secrets he has seen with his own eyes. 
Until now. 
  Wara Cadogan's friends think she's the ideal missionary in Bolivia, but they don't know the truth: she betrayed her values, and it's tearing her apart. When Wara and her best friend Noah collide with the Prism, she believes Noah is dead and Alejo is to blame. 
She should hate him.
He's a killer. Who took everything from her.
What is she supposed to do when he gives up everything to save her?

My thoughts:

I was hoping to enjoy this book more than I did. It took me a while to get into the story (despite the interesting prologue) and I found myself kinda bored with the first third of Prism.

However, once I finally started getting more interested in the story, I found myself really caring about the characters and what they were going through. About that time is when something so horrible happens (not saying what) that made me really mad at the book... okay, maybe not mad, but really sad. :(

I did love the story of forgiveness and grace that was throughout - parts were really touching and even sweet. :) There was a little romance, but not much (in my opinion).

I also felt that at times it was a little too wordy and that made it hard for me to get into the book. So, all in all, I liked Prism, but there were a few things that I didn't like, so I'm giving it 2.5 stars.

I will say, though, there are a lot of people who seemed to have loved this book, so if Prism sounds interesting to you, you might want to try it.

*I received a complimentary eBook copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
