Book Review: Unstoppable by S.R. Johannes


Title: Unstoppable
Author: S.R. Johannes
Kindle Edition: 275 pages
Published: June 3, 2014 by Coleman & Stott
Series: The Nature of Grace (#3)

from Goodreads:
After everything that has happened, Grace moves to the Everglades to live with her grandmother, Birdee, and hang out with old man Rex, Birdee's "friend with benefits". Grace quickly befriends Dylan, Rex's nephew, and Dylan's girlfriend, Sadie, who is a die-hard teen activist. Sadie spends her time leading protests against the roadside zoos that run rampant in Florida with a total disregard for animals or the flimsy law.

One day while out in the marshes of the Everglades, Grace and her friends rescue an abused—and endangered—Florida panther. She and Birdee spend time rehabilitating the animal. But when the panther runs off, Grace follows it to Uncle Bob's, a large roadside zoo they all have been protesting. One that is illegally filled with a variety of endangered and exotic animals. Before she can rescue the panther, she and her friends are kidnapped by the ruthless owner and dragged deep into the Everglades for a hunting challenge.

Only this time, Grace is the prey.

During a sick game of cat and mouse, Grace and her friends are offered one chance at survival, but only if they reach civilization before being caught. With a small head start and very little supplies, only time and skill stand between the hunter and the hunted. But out in the Everglades, there may be more dangers than Grace realizes.

Against all odds, Grace must make it out alive and win, or everything she holds dear could be lost.

Alleluialu's Review:

I love Grace. She is such a spunky little thing. This series is exciting and suspenseful with lots of twists and turns. If you enjoy the outdoors, these books have it all: the mountains, the Everglades, bears, snakes, alligators, mountain lions and even a sweet little momma monkey. Grace has been brought up to respect nature and to love animals - even those that could possibly eat her. Grace has learned all kinds of survival skills which, of course, she has to use in the situations she gets herself in. She is smart, resourceful and very brave. Over the three books, she loses people - her father and some of her friends, but she also finds new friends who she connects with immediately. She is a conservationist who brings animal abuse to the attention of us all. As I said before, these books are very exciting. There are also relationships, but not mushy ones. Things are implied, but unless your imagination goes there, you won't blush too much. A great book for teenagers and young adults who enjoy nature and preserving our wildlife.  

I gave this one 5 stars, too! I loved it! Here are my reviews of Uncontrollable and Untraceable as well. You can get your ebook on Amazon here. Paperback release is scheduled for later this month.
