The Brilliance of Stars

Nelson. (A Jack and Ivy Novel, Bk. 1). Nov. 2022. 352p. ISBN 9780785248453. $16.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Ciesielski (The Ice Swan) starts off her new series with a kiss and a bang, and neither the romance nor action slows down from there. Ivy, Jack, and Philip are all orphans, hardened on the mean streets of early 20th century Washington, DC. A chance encounter under a bridge catapults them into a new life of deception and intrigue as part of a secret society called Talon, which has sworn to root out evil in every corner of the globe. As Talon operatives learn combat and espionage skills, they also have to learn who to trust amidst a world at war.
VERDICT This is an adrenaline-packed, globe-trotting read for anyone looking for a clean-cut adventure reminiscent of Captain America. It’s a great title to add to genre-bending Christian fiction shelves containing Michelle Griep’s “Blackfriars” series and Ronie Kendig’s “The Tox Files” series.
