Summary from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been in the witness protection program most of her life. But The Panteras have caught up with her and her younger brother. Her car is totaled, she's hurt, and the street gang is closing in when wolves with glowing eyes appear out of nowhere and chase away the killers. 

Then a very cute guy who handles a bow like Robin Hood emerges from the woods and takes them to safety at his fortress-like home. 

And that's just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets...

Review
Morgan and her brother Jimmy are in the witness protection program and constantly moving since they witnessed a murder and need to testify against the man who committed the crime.  The story jumps right into Morgan and Jimmy being chased on running for their lives.  I love how the story begins with being thrown right into the action and the story easily unfolding from there.   The reader recieved just the right amount of details when needed, I still had lingering questions, but everything became clear in time!

I love the references to modern day happenings that are in the book as well.  The jokes that are made use lingo and knowledge that is very current.  This is the first book I have read recently that has used very modern references and jokes and I enjoyed it.  It felt like having an inside joke with the author.

The author did a great job with the details of the story I felt like I could picture what was going on with the characters as well as where they were headed while reading.  The descriptions of the house where they were staying allowed me to visualize exactly what Morgan was seeing.  I also loved the feelings that Morgan expressed during the book.  The book is completely told from Morgan’s point of view and we get a real sense of how she feels with all this new information given to her.  We also see where Morgan’s priorities are and also where her loyalties are.

The history of the tribe that was presented in bits and pieces was perfect for me.  I never felt overwhelmed as a reader learning about who each person in the tribe was.  It was presented in a fashion that was easy to follow along.  I know as a reader sometimes getting hit with a large amount of names all at once turns me off and I start to get confused and have to reread portions.  Since the author spread out the introductions it made it easy to read.

I don’t feel like there was a major cliffhanger at the end of the book.  I would consider reading the next book in the series just because it was written so well, but I feel like Morgan’s story could be complete at the end.   I feel like I didn’t have too many questions that weren’t answered in the end.  

I would suggest reading this book as a nighttime read.  It is quick read and a nice distractions from a busy day or work or school or just plain life!  The details make you really feel like you are part of the story.

I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours for an honest review.  This does not affect my opinion of this book.

My Rating ⅘
