Book Review: The Twilight Tsunami

Title The Twilight Tsunami
Author Shelby Londyn-Heath
Release Date November 12, 2016

Grey is a hard-hitting social worker who removes babies and children from dangerous drugged parents, violent homes, and families joined with criminal gangs. He is unstoppable until a new social worker enters his department. She is hungry for power and position, as she challenges Grey in dramatic and unexpected ways. Even as Grey yanks newborns from mothers, gets beat up by irate parents, and lives through suicides of foster children aging out of the system, nothing can stop him until he meets his nemesis, a truly power-hungry woman.

Grey slowly unravels as he attempts to combat his rival's malice. He spirals into a shadowy self, fighting to keep himself functional within the turmoil of his co-worker's cruel actions. He realizes she has destroyed other lives and will stop at nothing to be master of her own design, as she tries to destroy his.

Grey makes a decision to redeem himself, the only way left for him to rise up and conquer his fears. He risks losing everything, as he attempts to find salvation and fell his adversary. Along the way, he discovers a secret, one that leads to her "Achilles Heel," and to his greater truth.

There's so much going on in The Twilight Tsunami. While Grey may be at the center of this story, it's certainly not just about him. It's a very fast-paced story, but it's very easy to follow.

I enjoyed the book well enough until the ending. I don't really see how revelation about Marjorie really fit into the story. It felt rushed and didn't sit well with me. Done differently (or not at all), I likely would have bumped my rating up to four stars.


3 out of 5 stars
