What did you love best about Destroyer of Worlds?

I love the fast-paced action in this story. We are whisked from London to India and many spots between. Each scene is presented with just the right level of detail to paint a clear picture. Penn excels at this light touch with her adjectives.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Morgan - readers have gotten to know her well over the previous books in this series. This work keeps her arch going. I'm not going to spoil any of the details, but you will like how she progresses in this book.

Which scene was your favorite?

Towards the end at a huge Hindu religious festival. Incredible scene, it felt like I was there with the characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some of the parts made my stomach turn a bit. I thought to myself, "ugh, nasty!"

Any additional comments?

One thing did not happen in this book that I really wanted to happen. I'm hoping it happens in the next book in the series. I can't wait to see what Penn has in store for these characters next. If you like Dan Brown or Indian Jones, but with a lot more true facts and historical detail, this book is for your.
