Nine by Rachelle Dekker – Book Review
Are you looking for an emotionally gripping, action-packed thriller to lose yourself in this season? If so, consider adding Rachelle Dekker’s newest novel Nine to your must read list.
Nine tells the story of a teenager named Lucy who is running for her life. Why, you may wonder, is she running? Who is she running from? What do the people who are chasing her want from her? Here’s the thing: she doesn’t know for sure because someone has wiped her memory clean – supposedly, for her own good.
Lucy only knows one thing for sure: her friend Olivia left her with specific instructions. Run west to Corpus Christi. Find Summer. Don’t stop until you’re safe. Be careful who you trust.
Zoe is a waitress who makes it a point not to get emotionally involved with her customers. The painful experiences of her past have taught her to be cautious of whom you trust. But, when Lucy wanders into her diner, Zoe senses something different about her – a need and a vulnerability that she has also felt – that tugs at her heartstrings. Against her better judgement, she finds herself reaching out to Lucy and providing her with the support and assistance she once needed yet never received – which puts both of them in the crosshairs of the mysterious pursuers.
What dark memories lie in Lucy’s past? Who awaits her in Corpus Christi and is this someone she really wants to meet? Who is after her and what will they do to her if they find her and Lucy?
The characters are captivating. The pursuit is relentless. The search for identity, belonging and the battle against good and evil are timeless. Even the beautiful artwork on the cover draws you in.
Whether you’re a long-time fan of Ted and Rachelle Dekker or a suspense enthusiast looking for your latest thrill, Nine has all of the elements necessary to hook you and keep you anticipating the next twist and turn throughout.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
