I need to say that I know the author but that this review is written because I truly delight in these books. Abduction is the final of the Alex Caine trilogy and, for me, it's the best. In Abduction, Alan Baxter brings all the various threads throughout the books to an exciting and nail biting end leaving you wanting more. Each of the books in this series can be read as a stand alone book and that's brilliant. That said, I think the whole series is a terrific read. I loved Bound and Obsidian, they set up Alex Caine and his life beautifully. Both are very different books where Bound introduces Alex and his contemporary world where magic exists quietly whereas Obsidian is set in a 'closed' world, dark and nervy. Alan Baxter is a master at writing fight scenes that are short, sharp and real. He describes his settings so that they blend well with the characters in order that the story remains the focus. If you love action, fast paced storyline, real characters that you can relate to, this is the series for you. If you like thrillers, well written characters, a real ride through each of the individual books, then I highly recommend these three.
