My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received the E- arc copy from Netgalley for my honest opinion.
Major Spoilers!! Do not read this unless you want to be spoiled!
This book will be released on March 7th 2017
I really liked this story. It reminded me of the shows Castle and Freeform’s Guilt. If you like mystery or thriller books, movies, or tv shows you will definitely like reading this book. The story is set up well and the writing makes you never want to put the book down. I like the main character Anastasia Phoenix because, in the beginning, she was just your average teenager in high school. Her parents worked for Dresden a science company. She went on trips all around the world with her older sister Keira and her mom and dad.
Later in the story, her parents get into a fiery car crash and die. It breaks her older sister Keira, who is put in charge of raising Anastasia which causes upheaval. Little did Anastasia know that her mom and dad have been spies for years! Keira goes to investigate her parent’s history with being spies in all. It’s Keira’s thirst for her parent’s double lives that in the end gets her kidnapped. Anastasia goes on a hunt to Italy to talk to a lead in Keira’s disappearance, because the police don’t seem to be finding out any information at all. She gets a lead from someone in Italy who may be of help.
Anastasia arrives in Italy and finds out her parent much deeper and darker paths that they have lived all along. In Italy, Anastasia discovers who took her sister and that her parents are alive! In the ending Anastasia discovers another secret that I myself didn’t see coming. She learns that Randolph Urban, the man who worked with her parents at Dresden and who happened to pay for her trip is her real father.
Once the CIA gets involved they make Anastasia and Keira go into hiding for protection. Later her friends who helped along the way Charlette, Marcus, and Julian meet again. Now the sisters are determined to find out all about their parent’s background. This is a really well-told story and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
