    Boy this book pissed me off at so many levels!! I guess I've yet to encounter a book/trilogy that profoundly disappointed me as much as this. Based on the current 'Hollywood' "Red Sparrow' movie in theaters, the book continues the saga between Dominika a Russian operative and Nate...

    In my opinion, a five-star series with a one-star conclusion. I absolutely hated the ending - some may love it, some may say it's more realistic as to what really happens in the world of the CIA. That's probably true, but still, I hated the way it ended. The first two books I put up th...

    The Kremlin?s Candidate is the final installment in The Red Sparrow Trilogy- how I am going to miss these richly drawn, multi-dimensional characters. I savored every word! This trilogy depicts 21st century spy craft in all its intrigue, dangers, and suspense. All the scenarios ring t...

    I"M ANGRY! I even read the reviews before I started this last book, there were no warnings. I would have been perfectly happy to stop at the second book. There was no warning with the direction that this book was going to go. Not cool. ...

    Definitely a great CIA/FSB thriller. You can certainly tell it was written by a former CIA Operations officer. Lots of twists and turns. ...

    I really enjoyed this trilogy. Matthews does a good job of weaving romance with all the trappings of a spy novel: heart-breaking treachery, double-crossings, lots of suspense, plus fun gadgets and cutting-edge technology. I powered through all three books and would probably read more o...

    Huge disappointment ...

    Amazing trilogy. Loved them all. (audible review) Some great story telling and descriptions of espionage. There were some sad moments in this book, but the story was great. If you haven't read this series I totally recommend it. I don't want to say much about it and give any spo...

    ( 3.5 - 4 ) Originally posted on citygirlscapes.com. Spy books aren?t really my go to, but I stumbled upon?Red Sparrow?a few years ago and Jason Matthews trapped me in his written web. Like with it?s follow up,?Palace of Treason, Matthews brings another action-packed conti...

    Best of 3 installments! I was perfectly satisfied, with romanticized spy drama, globe trotting, ethnic recipes, culture immersion, ideology curse..., as if I were taking multiple mini-vacations...even after my beloved Bratok gone heaven...and archetypal Benford kicked out. I believed...

    Unfortunately, this wasn't as good as the first two books and ends the series on a sour note. Also, Matthews verges into Rocky Flintstone territory in some of the sex scenes: "The president had not forgotten how Egorova's nipples had responded to his touch, could not forget the faint s...

    I am disappointed! It is no ?I am Pilgrim?... I was eagerly looking forward to the release of Mr. Matthews? book, and once it appeared in my kindle I devoured it! It took me longer to think about writing this review than actually finishing the book. The writing, the story, the...

    SPOILER ALERT!!! Fantastic book! I would have given it 5 star but the ending explicably horribly tragic. I cannot fathom why feature books in this series without one of the main characters and I see no reason to kill him off. It was enough to have killed off one of the main supporting ...

    Fantastic, surprising ending to the Red Sparrow trilogy. Early on I was worried that Matthews was stretched too thin, but as the book progressed, I found the numerous plot lines to be wonderfully executed. I loved that actions had consequences, that just because someone's a good guy it...

    ( 3.5 - 4 ) Originally posted on citygirlscapes.com. Spy books aren?t really my go to, but I stumbled upon?Red Sparrow?a few years ago and Jason Matthews trapped me in his written web. Like with it?s follow up,?Palace of Treason, Matthews brings another action-packed conti...

    Best of 3 installments! I was perfectly satisfied, with romanticized spy drama, globe trotting, ethnic recipes, culture immersion, ideology curse..., as if I were taking multiple mini-vacations...even after my beloved Bratok gone heaven...and archetypal Benford kicked out. I believed...

    Unfortunately, this wasn't as good as the first two books and ends the series on a sour note. Also, Matthews verges into Rocky Flintstone territory in some of the sex scenes: "The president had not forgotten how Egorova's nipples had responded to his touch, could not forget the faint s...

    I am disappointed! It is no ?I am Pilgrim?... I was eagerly looking forward to the release of Mr. Matthews? book, and once it appeared in my kindle I devoured it! It took me longer to think about writing this review than actually finishing the book. The writing, the story, the...

    SPOILER ALERT!!! Fantastic book! I would have given it 5 star but the ending explicably horribly tragic. I cannot fathom why feature books in this series without one of the main characters and I see no reason to kill him off. It was enough to have killed off one of the main supporting ...

    In this, the final novel in a high-impact trilogy, Jason Matthews seeks to take the story in a new and interesting direction, while tying up some loose ends and leaving others to dangle without resolution. Dominika Egorova remains a highly-placed mole in the Russian Government, having ...

    Boy this book pissed me off at so many levels!! I guess I've yet to encounter a book/trilogy that profoundly disappointed me as much as this. Based on the current 'Hollywood' "Red Sparrow' movie in theaters, the book continues the saga between Dominika a Russian operative and Nate...

    I put this book down with great regret and - without giving away any spoilers - not a few tears as well. This is the final part of the great trilogy of novels relating the relationship between Nate (or Neyt), Nash and Colonel Dominika Egorova, the FSB Counter Intelligence chief who ...

    In my opinion, a five-star series with a one-star conclusion. I absolutely hated the ending - some may love it, some may say it's more realistic as to what really happens in the world of the CIA. That's probably true, but still, I hated the way it ended. The first two books I put up th...

    The Kremlin?s Candidate is the final installment in The Red Sparrow Trilogy- how I am going to miss these richly drawn, multi-dimensional characters. I savored every word! This trilogy depicts 21st century spy craft in all its intrigue, dangers, and suspense. All the scenarios ring t...

    Definitely a great CIA/FSB thriller. You can certainly tell it was written by a former CIA Operations officer. Lots of twists and turns. ...

    Not out with a bang, but with a whimper.... After two thrilling parts of the trilogy, the third part is a vast disappointment. It's written as if Matthews had a thesaurus for breakfast each morning, and the plot develops in an alarmingly predictable way. And then, in just a few pages, ...

    In my opinion, a five-star series with a one-star conclusion. I absolutely hated the ending - some may love it, some may say it's more realistic as to what really happens in the world of the CIA. That's probably true, but still, I hated the way it ended. The first two books I put up th...

    The Kremlin?s Candidate is the final installment in The Red Sparrow Trilogy- how I am going to miss these richly drawn, multi-dimensional characters. I savored every word! This trilogy depicts 21st century spy craft in all its intrigue, dangers, and suspense. All the scenarios ring t...

    I"M ANGRY! I even read the reviews before I started this last book, there were no warnings. I would have been perfectly happy to stop at the second book. There was no warning with the direction that this book was going to go. Not cool. ...

    Definitely a great CIA/FSB thriller. You can certainly tell it was written by a former CIA Operations officer. Lots of twists and turns. ...

    I really enjoyed this trilogy. Matthews does a good job of weaving romance with all the trappings of a spy novel: heart-breaking treachery, double-crossings, lots of suspense, plus fun gadgets and cutting-edge technology. I powered through all three books and would probably read more o...

    'The Kremlin's Candidate', the 3rd in the Red Sparrow series by Jason Matthews, is yet another intricately crafted thriller with strong writing, good dialogue, and great 'tradecraft'. I'm sad to see this series end but getting there has been very satisfying. The plot involves a bit...

    Amazing trilogy. Loved them all. (audible review) Some great story telling and descriptions of espionage. There were some sad moments in this book, but the story was great. If you haven't read this series I totally recommend it. I don't want to say much about it and give any spo...

    ( 3.5 - 4 ) Originally posted on citygirlscapes.com. Spy books aren?t really my go to, but I stumbled upon?Red Sparrow?a few years ago and Jason Matthews trapped me in his written web. Like with it?s follow up,?Palace of Treason, Matthews brings another action-packed conti...

    Best of 3 installments! I was perfectly satisfied, with romanticized spy drama, globe trotting, ethnic recipes, culture immersion, ideology curse..., as if I were taking multiple mini-vacations...even after my beloved Bratok gone heaven...and archetypal Benford kicked out. I believed...

    Unfortunately, this wasn't as good as the first two books and ends the series on a sour note. Also, Matthews verges into Rocky Flintstone territory in some of the sex scenes: "The president had not forgotten how Egorova's nipples had responded to his touch, could not forget the faint s...

    I am disappointed! It is no ?I am Pilgrim?... I was eagerly looking forward to the release of Mr. Matthews? book, and once it appeared in my kindle I devoured it! It took me longer to think about writing this review than actually finishing the book. The writing, the story, the...
