⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Jack is only seven years old when she learns that life can be gone in the blink of an eye. She is raised and trained how to kill in multiple ways. Only as she comes of age does she find that everything she has been taught is not as it seems, and she begins to question the life she has been trained for. When her curiosity gets the better of her, she finds that her life could be better, but she will have to find a way to save the one person that sees more in her.
This was an intriguing story of a young girl that finds her life to be dark and deadly, but she finds her light in the most unlikely place. When she begins to question everything that she knows and has been taught, her life could become void, but she’s found her true calling in life and that will mean that she has to betray the man that has raised her. She has to find a way to do it and stay alive though or everything she has learned and is working towards could be the end.
I enjoyed this story and although I don’t read a lot of paranormal or fantasy stories, it seems that the ones that I do read turn out to be entertaining, intriguing and a very good read, Pivot is no exception to this. I liked Jack’s character and the way that she comes into her true calling. She has to be sneaky and ruthless, but she has been trained well and the training she’s had will only help her to find the strength and will to do what is right. I give this story a 4-star review and look forward to reading more of the trilogy as well as more of L.C. Barlow’s work. I am new to L.C. Barlow’s work, but I always enjoy finding new to me authors and when they contact me themselves, it means so much more to me when I read their work and find it entertaining and enjoyable to read. I look forward to Perish coming out and reading it so that I can get more of Jack’s story.
