Review: Agent with a History by Guy Stanton III

Agent with a History (The Agents for Good #1)Agent with a History by Guy Stanton III

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Agent with a History

It’s been one long day for Lisa and her headache is living proof of it. Most of it she blamed on the full moon outside. Things always got crazy this time of the month, but this month was exceptional. She needed sleep bad and only hoped the nightmares that haunted her would leave her alone for at least one night. They don’t. She wakes up as usual screaming only to find out that her nightmare has just begun, because she’s not alone in her room.

Agent with a History was interesting and fast-paced. It was a quick read, and kept me on the edge of my seat.

Characters

The characters were well done. They had believable back stories that motivated their actions. The protagonists were lovable, yet still flawed, and the antagonists were purely evil, but I still pitied them.

Plot

The plot was mildly predictable, but I was still interested in seeing the story play out. It was a wonderful idea, but there were several plot points from the beginning that were never resolved. They were just there to get the character from point A to point B. I thought they could have been tied into the rest of the story better, or just left out. Other than that, I liked it.

Overall thoughts

There were some really neat and original elements to the book, such as ‘The Queen’s Dance’ that Solomon composed for the Queen of Sheba. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, especially the elements of history woven through it.

Would I recommend it? Yes, to ages 15+
Would I let my kids read it? Yes, but there is some mildly mature material that I don’t think young children should read
Would I read the other books in the series? Yes, I’m excited to find out more about the characters!

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
