Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Sara Grey found her father after he had been murdered.  She was sent to live with her uncle Nate.  Since the time she was six, she has been able to heal animals.  She also befriended a troll named Remy. She claimed friends in Scott, Peter, Greg and Roland.  None of her friends were girls.  She is a loner, more so after Greg leaves.  She and Scott hate each other now.  Peter and Roland are more social than she is. She keeps her powers and her friendship with Remy secret.  She lives a double life knowing about the Other People.
She also suspects her father was killed by a vampire.  Sara is determined to find out the truth.  However when trying to meet someone with answers, she comes face to face with a vampire.  Eli is determined to take her but two hunters come to save her.  Just when it looks like the hunter she met earlier is outnumbered two werewolves join the battle.
Sara is lucky to get away.  Her life completely changes.  The vampire is stalking her.  She learns the true identities of the werewolves.  She also gains two bodyguards.  Her life is full of danger and complications.  Nikolas and Chris are the warriors that are determined to keep her safe and on a short leash.  Sara refuses to be told what to do.
When the obsessed vampire sends those to track her, Sara must trust her friends and Nikolas to keep her safe.  She no longer has to do everything alone.
This book was a great read.  Sara was a fabulous character.  She is full of compassion and kindness.  She’s using any powers she has to help.  She has survived tremendous loss and has learned about the creatures that live alongside humans.  She is a survivor and I liked her instantly.  The author made her independent and stubborn.  It was almost humorous to watch her interact with Nikolas.  She couldn’t stand his overbearing, pushy nature.  She refused to change her life.  The storyline was fast paced and full of paranormal creatures.  Sara was constantly chased by creatures and fight scenes with scattered throughout the whole book.  Sara’s fear was ever present as was her determination.  Her secrets added to the storyline.  Her trust issues caused more problems than she fixed.

Nikolas was definitely an alpha-male.  His frustration was leaping off the page whenever Sara escaped his watchful eye.  He had every confidence in his ability to protect her.  It was fun to see them butt heads.  You could see the feelings growing the longer the two interacted.  It was an excellent match-up.  I loved this first book and I’m definitely going to read the rest in the series.  I give this one a 4.5 out of 5.
