Review & Giveaway! The New Recruit by Jill Williamson


The New Recruit by Jill Williamson
The Mission League: Book One
Marcher Lord Press
Genre: YA Suspense
Website for The Mission League Series:  themissionleague.com

About the book:

Forced to choose between military school and a Christian spy organization, skeptic Spencer Garmond signs on with the Bible geeks. But before he even boards the plane for Moscow, Spencer realizes this is no Bible club.

These guys mean business.

Stumbling onto a case involving a gang of homeless boys, a chilling tattoo, and the always beautiful Anya Vseveloda, Spencer struggles to find the faith needed to save the Mission League from enemy infiltration.

My review:

I was pleasantly surprised by The New Recruit and how much I enjoyed it! The story was really interesting and, while there were a few things I personally didn't agree with, overall it was a really good book.

While I did at times find Spencer annoying (mainly the way he acted regarding girls), I still liked him and most of the other main characters.

The whole "Mission League" was very intriguing and I loved all of the spy "gadgets" - especially the contacts. :)

I don't know whether or not there is going to be a sequel to The New Recruit, but I'm hoping there will be because some things didn't seem finished at the end of this book...and I really liked this story and didn't want it to end yet. :)

If you enjoy YA books with some spy-ness in it and don't mind the fact that people have prophecies/visions in it, I think you might like this book.
