After reading the prologue, I didn’t want to put this fast paced thriller down. Even though this is a novella, it reads like a full length story. I loved Nathan’s friendship with Alec! Their banter was pretty funny and their nicknames for people had me cracking up! Alec is a great secondary character and I’d love to read his story one day. I really liked Haylie. She’s smart and sweet and spunky. She doesn’t let the fact that she is deaf slow her down!
With this story, Susan Miura has jumped on to my auto buy list of authors! I am looking forward to her next story, Shards of Light, which comes out August 29th! It is the follow up to Healer.
*Thanks Susan Miura for sending me this copy! All opinions are my own.
