My Review: May 4, 2013 ~ Review Copy ~
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Alyssa, woke up surrounded by dead bodies, not knowing where she is, missing memories. This book kept me hooked from the get go. Alyssa saves women and makes many friends on her quest to find out who she is and why she is in this world of magic so unlike her world. In the end she has to make a very tough decision and it was quite a surprise. She makes very good friends along the way, I like each character, a couple keep you wondering whose side they are really on. There were some editing problems, but it can be fixed and the one that stands out the most is in chapter 40: " There is life in them yet," Mia said, rubbing her arms as if to ward off gooseflesh. "Their souls are trapped here." This is a major need of fixing because Lady blood had already killed this character unfortunately. I strongly like this book and I would like to read more books by this author. I would also like to thank Dave Ferraro the author for giving me this book for an honest review through my goodreads group - Shut Up & Read.
