Before Prophet Drews can have a future, he must first put his past to rest.
Prophet Drews is a man on the edge, and he’s pulling Tom Boudreaux, his partner on the job and in real life, right over with him. When his old CO calls in a favor, Prophet asks Tom to join the off-the-grid rescue. But the mission raises all of Prophet’s old ghosts: CIA assassins, the terrorist Sadiq, and most importantly, John—traitor, former teammate, and Prophet’s first love.
To help bury those ghosts for good, Prophet and Tom gather the members of Prophet’s former SEAL team . . . and a spook named Cillian who’s been tailing Prophet for years. In the process, Prophet is forced to face his team’s shifting loyalties, ghosts who refuse to stay dead, and scariest of all, his own limitations.
With everyone’s lives in danger, Prophet and Tom must unravel a tangled knot of secrets, including their own. Prophet must decide how much to reveal to Tom, while Tom must decide how far he’s willing to go to help Prophet lay his ghosts to rest.
This is my second read of Daylight Again and I honestly have no idea why I missed reviewing it the first time around. I’m fixing that now though, just in time for me to start reading the final book in S.E. Jakes’ Hell or High Water series, If I Ever. Regardless of why I committed to this re-read, I’m really glad I did. Mainly because there is SO much that I forgot. And trust me, a lot happens in this series, so missing even a little can cause some serious confusion. (That’s true, but honestly, I will use just about any excuse to re-read a book I love. 😉 )
Even though they’re growing closer and trust each other with their lives, Tommy knows that Prophet is hiding something. He’s patient though and he knows that Prophet will tell him when he’s ready. Prophet’s secret isn’t an easy one to to give to Tommy though. Not that he didn’t trust him, but because he knew that when he finally confided in Tommy, everything would change. By the end of Daylight Again, Tommy has a few secrets of his own. Prophet knows it too, he also knows he’ll get it out of him sooner or later.
That added tension, along with everything else, made Daylight Again really hard to put down. There were a lot of players involved and there were times that Tommy felt like he was on the outside looking in – especially when it came to Prophet’s old team. There wasn’t a lot of trust there and it went both ways, but Tommy would do anything to help Prophet put old ghosts to bed and keep him safe and sane… or as sane as either one of them could be.
It’s obvious at the end of Daylight Again that things are far from over. If I Ever has a lot of ground to cover, but I have a feeling S.E. Jakes will make the finale to Hell or High Water worth the wait. I should probably pick up Dirty Deeds (the first book in Mal and Cillian’s series) for a re-read before I start If I Ever, since it runs pretty much parallel to Daylight Again, but that would just be prolonging the inevitable. *sigh*
