Great story idea! This is not a rehash of run-of-the-mill subject matter. I found it hard to put down. My only negative is the grammar, syntax spelling and left out words. It sometimes feels as though English is a second language for this author. But don't let that stop you from reading this story. I look forward to future books. ( )

Katrina is a student who lives with one of her best friends in a relatively safe area, so they thought anyway. Soon Katrina's biggest worry is not whether or not her big papers are getting done on time, but whether or not she will survive to write her next paper period. Katrina's nightmare starts when she wakes up out of a dead sleep and hears noises in their apartment that alert her to a burglary taking place. Worried for her safety she grabs her phone and slips out the window onto the fire escape. From there she calls 911 for the burglary, but soon it is a call for a fire too, for she smells smoke and when she looks into it a bit further finds their apartment on fire. All Katrina can think is how she is glad her roommate is not home and not in any danger. Soon the police bring horrible new to Katrina about something found in their apartment and her life goes into a whirlwind of action. Will Katrina survive to see who was trying to rob and burn their apartment? Will she ever get over the shock of what they found in her apartment? Is someone after her? Is she safe?

This book is hard for me to review without giving away a ton of spoilers to future readers. So, I will keep it simple and maybe not as in depth as I normally would. The writing of this book was great, it was very vivid and kept me on my reading toes. It was a very action packed book that's for sure; a ton of thing happened in this shorter book, but they flow and don't seem overwhelming at all to the reader. I was hooked and couldn't put this book down after the first chapter. The characters were nothing to sneeze at either! They were so well described that you really got to know them as you read. I loved Katrina and the Guardian the best I think. This book is the first in a trilogy, so the ending made you remember that by not really ending completely. It was a good ending for the main plot of the book, but some underlying things in the plot were put on a "to be continued" air so you pick up the next book. I was left wondering a few things, which I am sure was the whole point of how she ended the book, so you read on in her trilogy. All in all a very good read, but lots of underlying questions are left in my head even after finishing the book. However, I understand why.

4/5 Stars! ( )
