To the Lions
By Holly Watt
Slow & Disjoined
Some books engage the reader from the first word. Others take a few chapters to draw the reader in.
Unfortunately “To the Lions” fails to do either. At least, it fails to engage the reader in the first seven chapters, at which point I gave up.
The plot follows a female reporter who tries to expose corruption in government and business, taking her on a journey through Europe and Northern Africa.
