Healers was an intriguing book from start to finish. It was so exciting and captivating that I couldn't put it down once I started reading. I remembered needing to run some errands but suspended them till I was done reading. That was how much my attention was locked on the book.

The story was told from Scott's perspective. I saw the story build to a climax. Brooke Reynolds sure has a knack for intertwining surprising details in a story. For instance, when I read the part where Scott met Mark beaten up, I assumed that he would save Mark at once. However, I was utterly blown away by what transpired. Considering the flow of events, I expected the book to end in a certain way. The shocking twist at the end kept me frozen for a couple of seconds. Apologies for being cryptic; I wouldn't want to spoil the book for you. The suspense and unexpected twists and turns were the primary reasons I found this book exciting. The author made the story so unpredictable that I couldn't wait to see what happened next.

On a final note, there were a few minor errors in the book. However, they didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. I usually expect to encounter a plethora of mistakes in books of this kind. I was so happy to be disappointed. I commend the editors for a job well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and found no reason to fault it. Not only was it well written and professionally edited, but it was also a unique storyline, as I've never read a book with an exact plot. I would give it a rating of 4 out of 4 stars, as it was such an exciting and captivating book. I would recommend the book to lovers of thriller books; there's enough thrill to keep you turning the pages. It is not suitable for a younger audience due to some sex scenes and the heavy profanity.
