the blurb

Kaitlyn and Erik are sent on a mission to track down Vance Dasvoik, a ruthless monster. His latest thrill—abducting and selling young women.

Vance's current victim: Aaliyah, a seventeen-year-old who never imagined walking her brother home from school one evening would change her life forever.

The mission quickly turns personal for Kaitlyn when she finds Aaliyah beaten, her mind and soul fractured from abuse of the worst kind. Kaitlyn knows firsthand what it's like to be haunted by the past and resolves to bring justice to the elusive Dasvoik.


my review

This novella takes place before the events of the first book, but I definitely think it should be read as it was published… after reading the first book.

In a lot of ways, I think I enjoyed the novella more than I did the first book.  It takes place over a long period of time, but it also explores the mythology and back story of the series to come.  We learn so much about some of the characters that we met in Hidden Wings and it answers a lot of questions about where things began before the time of the first book.

It’s a short read, but one that I think is important to the series.  I almost wish it had been a full-length book in itself!

About Cameo Renae

My family is what keeps my heart beating, and my world a happy place to be.

I was born in San Francisco, raised in Maui, Hawaii, and recently moved with my husband and children to Alaska.
I’m a daydreamer, a caffeine and peppermint addict. I love to laugh, love to read, and love to escape reality. One of my greatest joys is creating fantasy worlds filled with adventure and romance, and sharing it with others.
One day I hope to find my own magic wardrobe, and ride away on a magical unicorn. Until then…I’ll keep writing!

Favorite quote: “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.” Albert Einstein
