Felix and Allison return from winter break with hopes of settling into the comfortable rhythms of college life only to find Portland College hasn’t escaped the wave of senseless violence sweeping across the land, from the malls of Minnesota to a small town in northern Maine. Amidst the chaos, a political movement rises, fueled by the turmoil threatening to tear the country apart. As the public’s discontent reaches a final tipping point, a new hope emerges from an unexpected figure, a man offering the promise of peace and security—the prospect of ‘freedom from fear’. When the line that separates allies from enemies blurs and good and evil becomes a matter of perspective, Felix must make a choice. But as the gears of a 2,000-year-old prophecy grind inexorably to the future, can Felix choose his own path, or is free will as illusory as the salvation promised by a man destined to set the world aflame?

The Felix Chronicles
Five Days in January was even more thrilling and complex than the first one. The suspense is intense, and no one is safe. The ruthless nature of Felix’s enemies is made abundantly clear, and there were several shocks and twists that I never, not even a little bit, expected. This is one of those books that actually caused me to lose sleep, even after I set it down, because it left my mind racing.
My favorite thing about this book was how it gripped me emotionally. My second favorite thing is how we see glimmers of action happening elsewhere that feed into the main story. These side stories would almost be complete in themselves, given all the attention the main one is given, but they don’t stray away too long.
Overall, I loved this book and would highly recommend it to fans of thrillers and dark fantasy. It’s awesome. Just a lot of fun to read, heart-pounding at times.
