Severed Threads by Kaylin McFarren


Severed Threads was another of those "Uggh, I can't believe I picked this to review" book.  I made myself finish this one to review, but there wasn't much I liked about it.

Rachel was in a relationship with Chase who was a diving partner in her father's ship salvage company.  Rachel's father always believed he was on the verge of some great discovery.  But when he died while exploring with Chase, Rachel lost her father and the man she was growing to love.  Years later the company Rachel works with is contacted to provide funding for a new salvage project to rescue a great artifact.  Rachel has to come to terms with Chase and with her fears about her father's death.  The two become embroiled in a suspenseful and dangerous situation as they embark on an adventure to find this artifact.

There were many things I didn't like about this book.  I found it confusing.  There were layers of story going on that were supposed to tie in, but I had a hard time connecting the dots and felt as if I were confused through much of the story.  I didn't feel like the characters of Chase and Rachel were well-developed.  There was so much (supposedly related) action going on throughout the story that not much of the character's inner thoughts and feelings were revealed.  I didn't feel like I "knew" them.  I really felt like the whole story was choppy and hard to follow.

There was quite a bit of language and sex throughout the story also.  I skimmed through some sections.  I don't only read Christian novels, and I have given a good review to some novels that I cautioned about language or sex.  But, I thought the use of both was just thrown in throughout this story.  I

I give this one 2 stars and an R for content.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
