The final book in Weston Kincade’s Life of Death trilogy is a cool blend of police procedural, paranormal mystery, and family drama. Perhaps the smoothest read of the three, it gives readers a privileged glimpse into the past of its protagonist’s powers, while also offering tantalizing promise for the future. Relationships are nicely drawn, and the series is well-suited to teens and young-adults, especially those reluctant male readers! When Alex touches things related to death, he experiences the death they relate to. It’s a scary power, convincingly portrayed as he slips into alternate lives, struggling to cling to the truth of his own. Meanwhile his son is developing powers even greater than his own. But what can one teenager and a cop who happens to be his dad do when drugs and gangs overwhelm a smalltown school and the bodies pile up? Family dialog is convincing and humorous – great father-and-son conversations! The world of cops, moonshiners, Virginian mountains and rivers is evocatively portrayed. And curiously fascinating, sometimes gruesome details spice the tale. Fastmoving as the river, thought-provoking, exciting and dark, Sacrifices makes a great climax to the series. It could easily be read and enjoyed alone, and it’s highly recommended. Disclosure: I was given a boxed set and I enjoyed all three novels.

Sacrifices are one of those books that stick with you after you read it. It sticks to the same theme that runs through the other books in the trilogy but it also brings up a few questions. What would you do to protect your child? How far would you go to protect him or her? Would you be able to make a snap judgment under extreme stress and live with the consequences? Sacrifices starts shortly after the events of The Golden Bulls. Alex is watching his town going down drain. There is a turf war brewing between the moonshiners and a drug kingpin. As that is happening, cremated remains are showing up all over town. Alex’s son is soon in the middle of things when he takes on a gang that is taking over the high school. Soon, everything will come to a head and what will happen when the smoke clears. Who will survive and who will die. Will Alex be able to protect the people closest to him? Will his powers help him? If I only liked Alex in the earlier books, I loved him in this one. He was a force to be reckoned with. I loved it when he went clued the principal about gangs. He was a force to be reckoned with. I do like that he was a little jealous of Jamie’s power. He wasn’t salty about it but he was jealous that Jamie could talk to his father and he couldn’t. I thought that his reconnecting with his father’s friend was a pivotal part of the book. His friend gave some information that shocked Alex (and myself). As a parent myself, I know I would have done the same thing Alex did. Hands down and no questions asked. The action in this book was awesome. It was the action (along with the supernatural elements) that kept me glued to the book. I like it when a book revs up and stays revved up. More often than not, books like this will stall in the middle of the book. Not Sacrifices. The action was kept up until the ending. There is also violence in the book. Not going to lie and say that it was mild violence. There were some pretty gruesome scenes of murder. The most gruesome scene is with Hector at the end of the book. But, it didn’t take away from the book. Instead, it was needed to show how ruthless the drug kingpin and the moonshiners were. The end of the book was almost a let down after the intense chapters before it. I felt a bit let down when reading the final chapter. The only reason I felt let down was that I knew there was not going to be any books in this universe. I would not know what happened to Paige, Alex or Jamie. There was no closure for me. And the final scene of the chapter…omg. I broke down in tears. I would give Sacrifices an Adult rating. While there is no sex, there is language and graphic violence. This is a book and a series that I would reread. I would also recommend to family and friends with a warning about the violence. **I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it**

Tranquil Heights is a small town with big problems surfacing every day. The newest threats facing Alex in his detective job are drugs, gangs, and moonshine. Jamie is faced with gang issues at school while Alex faces them on the street along with many other issues. I love these books. They are action packed mysteries that keep you reading and guessing until the end. This was the third installment in this series and was a great addition. It was filled with crime and drama. This one seemed a bit more action packed than the others before it and it was awesome. This book had turf wars, dead bodies, and danger around every corner. I absolutely love these books. The characters, the storyline, everything is great.

Alex Drummond is well known in Tranquil Heights. He does his job well and comes home to a wonderful family. His abilities have helped him and stayed off of more people’s radar. But now burnt corpses are being found and it is looking like a drug czar has come to Tranquil Heights and it looks like they are going to have some connection to Alex’s past. His family has now become a target, which is hard enough to work with. But his son Jamie has the same ability as him and might even surpass Alex with ability and hard headedness. Will Alex be able to keep his family safe and stop the drug cartel? I loved this book. Alex has found some peace and quiet in his life and has a wonderful family. But things are changing fast when burnt bodies are being discovered. If that is not enough to keep him on his toes having a son with psychometric abilities is going to add a new level to this investigation. I loved Jamie, the apple clearly doesn’t fall far from the tree but I’m glad Alex is there to help Jamie with his abilities, especially since he didn’t have that support when he was a kid. This is an amazing series. It has a lot of action with a touch of paranormal that just adds to the mix. This is the last book in a series and I am sad to see A Life of Death is over. I strongly recommend this series to anyone looking for a great thriller. I received Sacrifices from the author for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
