JC Morrows’ A Desperate Escape: Review and Interview

Happy Monday, reader friends! As you can see, I don’t have the usual post about my TBR pile. Instead, I want to take the time to share my thoughts on JC Morrows’ latest novel, A Desperate Escape, ​which releases tomorrow!

​But first things first. If you would like to pre-order the novel, you can go to Amazon, B&N, and Kobo. Also, Ms. Morrows is having a Facebook release party tomorrow, April 26th, at 6pm edt. You can join HERE to hang out at the virtual party. Now on to the review!​

My Review


I’ve been hooked on Ms. Morrows’ Order of the Moonstone series since I read the first novel, A Reluctant Assassin. You can read my reviews for book one here and book two there. Each book grips and grabs you by the collar from the opening line until the end.

A Desperate Escape is no different. It picks up after Kayden has proclaimed, “I was sent here to kill you.”

Y’all, what happens next is the love of Christ. Ms. Morrows has hinted at the prince’s faith in the previous books but this one delves deeper. At times, my disbelief in the scenes gave me pause. Was Prince Dvarius’ reaction believable? Yet, I think that is exactly what Ms. Morrows was going for. To have the reader question their reactions to that of how Christ wants us to react.

Christianity is often seen as an unrealistic belief. The call God places upon us, the love He demands, it can seem daunting, impossible for the unbeliever. This is what Kayden experiences in A Desperate Escape.

​Yet, the high tension is still present. The fight scenes spectacular. And the intrigue and mystery…well they are full of suspense. But what gripped me the most about this story was the focus of God.

He is the reason Prince Dvarius leads in a just matter. Dvarius faith, I believe, is what cracked Kayden’s wall around her heart and had her seeking the Creator. Not only that, but A desperate Escape ​will have us all questioning our behavior. Are we walking in the Spirit or letting our flesh rule?

A Desperate Escape ​was a great read and ended with the usual cliff hanger. That bait swinging before you, twisting your insides as you eagerly await the next book in the series. If you’ve not read the other books in the series, I encourage you too. It makes the story that much richer. If not, don’t miss this one, you won’t be sorry.

*I give this a 5 out of 5.

1. What inspired you to write the Order of the Moonstone series?
God inspired me. I’ve written about aliens and a dystopian post apocalyptic future society, but I never thought I would write a story about a Cinderella-type young woman who falls in love with the Prince she is sent to assassinate.

2. Do you share any character traits with Kayden?
Honestly, I don’t see any of myself in Kayden, but I’m certain there are similarities. Mostly I just wish I could be more like her. She’s my hero!

3. What message do you hope readers will take away after reading A Desperate Escape?
The message that I have worked so hard to weave into the entire series is that it’s never too late to turn your life around – and God’s forgiveness covers ALL sin!

4. Can you tell us if there will be more books in the Order of the Moonstone series?
Yes, there are more books to come. I will reveal more about the next short story to come at my online release party and I’ll be handing out bookmarks that have the next cover all along the [book] tour.

5. What’s next for you writing wise after the Order of the Moonstone series is complete?
Actually, the first book in my next series is set to release before the Order of the MoonStone is complete. Life After E.L.E. part 1 is set to release in November of this year!

  1. Toni, thank you so much for an excellent review and interview with JC Morrow who is a new author for me. I love the focus of her books and look forward to reading them. Thanks for making me aware of her God-given talent as she uses it for the glory of God. Nice to meet you JC. j


  2. Loved the review, Toni, and the story idea, JC! I have two teen grandsugar boys I’m rearing who are not avid readers…YET 🙂 Do you think this is this a series they might enjoy?


  3. I had to read this interview. I got JC Morrows confused with James K Morrows who wrote the blasphemous Towing Jehovah. The Order of Moonstone series sounds like a lot more fun to read.
