Hostage Three - Nick Lake’s new book was reasonably interesting. While I would like to recommend Nick Lake’s previous series: Blood Ninja, Blood Ninja II – The Revenge of Lord Oda, and Blood Ninja III - The Betrayal of the Living, in my opinion the books went from excellent in book one to just average by book three. Blood Ninja book one was an excellent book and the series could have almost ended there. Opinions can obviously differ from one reader to the next. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

A great letdown after In Darkness. Unlikeable characters, unrealistic plot. Lake doesn't write from a rich teenage girl's perspective very well.
