Book Review: Wynter's Discontent by Nigel Draper

I enjoyed this book from the very beginning. I'm a big fan of books that switch from one character's point of view to another. It's a bonus when it is done well. That is the case with this book. The chapters float seamlessly from one character to another.

I'm also a big fan of the plot of this book. It's like your getting an inside look into the mind of a con man, and then you throw in the aspect of the secret service and that makes it even more interesting.

For me, world building and character development are a vital part of any story. The character development in this book is very well done. I was particularly a fan of Wynter and of Meredith. Those characters were both very compelling to me and I couldn't wait to hear what happened to them throughout the book. The author does a great job of working subtle details into the character descriptions. There were many times where there would just be short little descriptors of a character's demeanor that would totally put that character into my mind's eye. It was like I was standing there in the room with them. The world building is equally well done. I could see the scenes in vivid detail in my mind. To me, this is the mark of a really well done book.

The readability of this book is very good. It's a quick read and it keeps you engaged from start to finish. There is no slow build up at the beginning, you just jump right in and before you know it you are at the end.

I would recommend this book to anyone. I think it is a book that can appeal to a wide range of readers. It's well worth your time and I have no doubt you will enjoy it as much as I did.

My rating: 4/5
