This is not a stand alone book and you will need to read the earlier books in the series before reading this book.  I am also giving you a warning that this review may very well contain spoilers from the earlier books in the series.  Another warning is that this book is an intense read with some difficult content that may be difficult for some to read. That said this is a five plus star story by a talented storyteller.  A must read edge of your seat, emotional series.
Phoebe has been through so much, but she is back home and with the help of Beau and her family has been fighting back to claim her life again, after being kidnapped.  Will she be able to claim that life she wants and the joy she once had or will the tragedy of her past keep her from it?  Will the people in her life help or hurt her spirit after such tragedy?
Beau is such an amazing person with all the support he gives Phoebe.  Phoebe is truly amazing herself. She survived all she has been through and is finally getting back to racing. So why is it so hard for her to let go and move forward?  Between her health issues she has had her entire life with her kidneys and the added damage from the time in captivity, is having the life she wants with Beau something she can even hope for?  Is this keeping her from moving forward?  
You will feel all the struggles, worry, laughter and every other emotion in between that these characters are experiencing as if you are living them.  The author writes with such detail that at times you wish she would not keep things as real as she does, then you only end up appreciating that she does.  Life is not easy and sometimes you really have to fight for what you want even if you don’t get what you want.  There are some really wonderful moments you find along Phoebe's journey.  You will want some tissues for both happy and sad times. There are some  surprises and several turn of events to keep this reader turning pages.  I love the interactions of the characters and how they are there for each other.  Of course there are characters that you won’t be happy about but again doesn’t life have people in them we aren’t happy with?
This is not an easy or quick read but one you will not want to put it down unless you have to take a breath you didn't even know you were holding.   Everything that is happening until the very last page builds until the last page and even then you are left with needing more of Phoebe’s story.  It is a great story for those who love stories with lots of raw emotions.  I would recommend this book to everyone who can deal with the mentioned above.  It is a series that haunts you.  I can't wait to read more from this excellent author.



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.
