I just have to say that this book is straight up action from page one. I loved every minute of it. Joanne Jaytanie has a great start to the series here. She has laid out the land of the plot and is continuing to build on it. The characters she has introduced so far are amazing. Tristan and Victory are so electric and mesmerizing. They have a magnetic chemistry. They are well matched together in this adventure. Two incredibly smart individuals, with a strong connection. It is not exactly a cliff hanger per say, but I am captivated and must know what happens next. I had a hard time putting this book down and am so excited to read the next book in the series. There is kidnapping, blackmail, murder, sex and amazing abilities. The story is so exciting and contagious. A truly great read. I am a definite new fan!!!! If you are looking for an action adventure thriller, then this is the book for you.
