Intriguing, suspenseful, action-packed and full of diverse characters that you will laugh and cry with.

I started reading at 7 (because I'm crazy) and couldn't stop until 4 in the afternoon. Each flip of the page kept me wanting for more, kept me wondering if this was the fight that will bring Sharie one step closer to her goal, or the fight that will destroy all that she has left.

Honestly, when I first received my copy of the 578-page novel I thought, 'This will take me at least 2 months to read...' But nope, I simply could not stop myself from reading "just one more page" every night for 3 days straight.

This really is a masterpiece. A bewitching page-turner, the plot is perfectly paced and enthralling from cover to cover. The characters are complex, relatable, conflicted, and dynamic. It is no small feat to mesmerize a reader with compelling story-lines and convincing
