Chasing the White Lion continues James R. Hannibal’s Clandestine Service books. Even if it wasn’t recommended that the previous book The Gryphon Heist be read first, it is well worth the effort. The first book really sets the scene for the characters’ skillsets and personalities. Then make sure you are ready to dive into the world of spying and intrigue.
This series is one of the best to come from the Christian publishing markets. It has plenty of action, intrigue, espionage and all sorts of incredible technological antics. It is obvious that the author has a great deal of experience in this sector, and it really makes the book come to life. Additionally, this is a good read for people who are not looking for cheesy, sappy romance.
The fast-paced, good, unsullied action adventure found here is hard to find. Hopefully, Hannibal won’t run out of ideas any time soon, because he knows how to keep the reader interested while providing personal tidbits about the characters and adding in lots of technological information. Can’t wait to read the next book!
