Book Review: Unstoppable, by S. R. Johannes




Unstoppable, the third book in the Nature of Grace series, keeps up the excitement -- even more than the first two books (Untraceable and Uncontrollable).

Grace is now living in Florida, in the Everglades, with her grandmother. Her grandmother has a boyfriend who has a nephew, Dylan. Dylan has a girlfriend, Sadie.

Sadie is an activist. Her cause is to try to rid Florida of its many roadside zoos, where animals are held under the most horrible circumstances. So she stages a protest. Grace attends the protest, and on the way home finds a Florida panther that is badly injured and has chains around its neck. She, of course, brings the panther home.

This starts what turns out to be a harrowing, exciting, thrilling, dangerous, and heart-stopping adventure that I don't want to say too much about. Suffice it to say that Grace, Dylan, and Sadie get into some serious trouble and their lives are threatened. Johannes is not afraid to show us some very cruel ways for humans to die, as well as cruelty to animals. The thrill factor of Unstoppable is the strongest point of the book.  This is the definition of "a page turner."

It's easy to get wrapped up in Unstoppable. That also makes it easier to overlook the extremely STUPID decisions that were made at times. Not just the teens, either. Sometimes what the adults do just doesn't make sense. But, adventure lovers will be willing to overlook these issues for the sake of the action.

Unstoppable would work as a stand alone, although the first two books were even better in my opinion, and there are references to these stories in Unstoppable. And, we get a visit from some beloved characters from the earlier books too.

Grace is a feisty character that, while making impulsive decisions, will keep your heart pounding. And, you will love her because of her sincere love for all animals.
