The book up for review is “The Cage Legacy” by Nicholas Conley.
The genre is definitely thriller. Our main character is a young boy by the name of Ethan who is 17 years old. At the age of 10 his father is caught and sent to jail on several charges of murder. The young boy did not see that coming as his family is shattered by the repercussions of it all.
Moving to a new town his mother, baby sister and he try to move on with their lives. Easier said then done. Ethan is defined by what his father has done. Thankfully he is surrounded by some good friends and a girl who loves him dearly, a girl who has trouble of her own.
Life is difficult for the young man as he replays the night his father was taken into custody. He has with him a journal of his father that shows how unbalanced his father really was. Ethan is not his father’s son. Or is he?
Word gets out that his father has escaped from prison. Murders start to occur. Clues to the murders are being sent to Ethan by his father in a cryptic code they use to use when he was a small boy. Arriving at the spot where the first letter leads him to he discovers he is too late to save this victim. The letters keep coming. Will he be able to save the next person?
I simply loved this book. It was definitely a page turner. I got invested in the character as the story unfolded. Even when it became gruesome it kept my attention. A true hit from this author.
