Daily Review: Honor Land by R. S. Guthrie
April 2, 2017
By Trish Gentry
You can’t help but feel the plethora of love the pages told – for our service members, for family, for loyalty, and for justice – a story you lived through and that is now a part of you.
The book opens by thrusting you right in the midst of a murder mystery. And, as in true R.S. Guthrie form, he begins adding the layers to the story from there. It isn’t long before you find yourself immersed in the history and culture of the west, where the author merges the past and present in brilliant fashion; all while weaving around you the lives of the characters so well, you feel you’ve known them their whole life.
One of this author’s natural abilities is to let you pick up this third book in the series and, if you haven’t read either of the preceding novels, allows you to be able to read the story without feeling as if you’re missing part of it or that you’ve been left out, but rather excited you get to go back and read more of the character…because the characters are not superficial. They have depth and humanity that only a life’s history told in part in each book can create.
I don’t want to give any spoilers, it’s not my style, but I do want to touch on the basis behind Honor Land, and that being that it’s closely related to those that place their lives on the line every single day in the line of duty to their country. R.S. Guthrie, in Honor Land, shows you what it takes to become a part of the Delta force and to live and think as one of these proud soldiers.
When you turn the last page, and recount the story from beginning to end, you can’t help but feel the plethora of love the pages told – for our service members, for family, for loyalty, and for justice – a story you lived through and that is now a part of you.
If you’re a fan of descriptive surroundings, of dialogue, of depth–mystery, action and surprise endings, you’ll want to read it, and then read it again because you won’t want it to end.
