Amazon/Goodread's Rating:  5/5
In Patti's Imagination Rating:  10/10

This is book four in the Phoebe Reede series and you do need to read the first three books, as this can not be read as a stand alone.  **This review may also have some spoilers from the earlier books.**  As with this entire series, this is not a light and easy read.

Phoebe has been through a terrible ordeal and the way the author writes about the aftermath feels very realistic.  She doesn’t have that quick fix or a blink of the eye everything is coming up rainbows. Also, it is not just Phoebe that has to deal with this aftermath, but her family along with Angel and Beau, too.  They are going through issues, too.  The emotions in this book will have you going on many highs and lows as the writing has you experiencing what these characters are experiencing, making them real.  How Phoebe has survived what she has gone through is a miracle in itself and to know the love and support she has while trying to learn to adjust to what is now her new normal shows us that there is hope that anything is possible.

The author has a way with her writing that will draw you in from the start to the end.  She leaves the reader wanting more without a disappointing ending.  The author uses everything so don't miss even the smallest detail it may not seem important at the time, but you discover later it is.  I can’t wait to read more from this skilled author.

Author Bio

Michelle Irwin has been many things in her life: a hobbit taking a precious item to a fiery mountain; a young child stepping through the back of a wardrobe into another land; the last human stranded not-quite-alone in space three million years in the future; a young girl willing to fight for the love of a vampire; and a time-travelling madman in a box. She achieved all of these feats and many more through her voracious reading habit. Eventually, so much reading had to have an effect and the cast of characters inside her mind took over and spilled out onto the page.

Michelle lives in sunny Queensland in the land down under with her surprisingly patient husband and ever-intriguing daughter, carving out precious moments of writing and reading time around her accounts-based day job. A lover of love and overcoming the odds, she primarily writes paranormal and fantasy romance.
