{Kregel Blog Tour} Red Dawn Rising (Book 2, Red Returning Trilogy)

Book Description:  Twenty-seven-year-old Cass Rodino is a hardworking, dedicated set designer on Broadway. But, like the actors who take the stage every night, she is masking a different reality.
Evgeny Kozlov has secrets of his own. As Cass and Evgeny separately set out to save Liesl from an impending doom, both are hurled into a fierce CIA/FBI dragnet, not knowing that their formidable opponent—a most unlikely predator—is already closing in on them.
Book 2 of the Red Returning Trilogy, Red Dawn Rising mixes suspense, action, and romance in a tale of personal tragedy and triumph that will keep readers pivoting between the evil desires of world powers and the redeeming powers of personal faith, life, and love.

My Thoughts:  Red Dawn Rising is the second book in the Red Returning Trilogy.  Yes, I would suggest that the reader read the first book in this trilogy, The Sound of Red Returning.  I read The Sound of Red Returning so as I began this second novel I wasn't stumped when events and characters from the previous book were mentioned.
I enjoyed the first book but this second book is even better!  And I love the cover! 
Espionage, romance, traitors and good vs. evil!  My.O.My! What a read!
The first few pages of this read captured me and I simply couldn't put the book down . . . I got so caught up in Cass and Evgeny's secrets and the rescue of Liesl, the great pianist they are trying to keep from assassination!  Cass and Evegeny keep the trail hot as they both work for the greater good.  Then enter the FBI & CIA who are trying to hold back a greater evil that could destroy the U.S. presidential administration.  
The mix of military, common life, and romance makes for one suspenseful read!  It keeps the reader  glued to the pages wondering and guessing how this scenario will play out.  The twists and turns in events is what keeps the reader enthralled with the lives of Liesl, Cass and Evgeny.
An absolutely grand-tastic read for those who enjoy spies, faith in God, romance and suspense!  I loved this read!!
