As with all truly good books this has several bad guys and girls that make you want to scream and make you appreciate the good guys even more! Ms Gabelman does a fantastic job of allowing these characters to hide in plain sight. Her confrontation/fight scenes will have you sitting on the edge of your seat holding your breath reading as fast as you can to make sure the good guys come out on top. She has a unique talent of drawing you in and making you truly love her characters. I am so impressed with her work I cannot wait for more in her series!
