Just like the first one i really enjoyed this book. i actually thought this book was better than the first one, while the first one builds the story and characters this book kicks of the action. There are alot of twists and turns, alot of tricks and deception and it really keeps you guessing! will she? wont she? There are alot of places where your heart is really in you mouth! you really just don't no whats going to happen in the storyline... and the end!.... keeps you thinking! Just like the first book its beautifully written!
As always i love Elanie... maybe more so in this book. in the first book you saw Elanie finding her feet but in this book you see a different side to her. She is more established, confident and determined in this book and although she still has that vulnerable side that we saw in the first book you also see a harder kick ass side that goes hunting down criminals.
Again i really enjoyed this book i cant wait to read the 3rd one to see which path she takes because right now it aint looking good and am also dying to see if she gets back with nick from the first book.
but great book well worth the read 4*
