He is waiting...He is watching...He will hunt her down. Angel is on the run. Her mother is dead, her body buried in a shallow grave by her latest boyfriend, Scotty, a ruthless, illegal hunter who is prone to violence and who now wants Angel dead before she can talk to the police. Angel has lived through more than a young girl should have but she's determined to stay alive. But in the scorching heat of the open desert, where can she hide?

This book is full of suspense and has twists and turns that will leave u wanting to keep reading to find out what happens!! With a modern cat and mouse feature in the book, you always find yourself cheering for the main character, Angel, hoping she gets away from her demons.

The main character, Angel, is faced with many a trouble that not very many people face, and has to face her fears and rely on strangers to live, basically showing her that not everyone is a horrible hurtful person. The way in which this book is written to show that anything can be overcome with a little help, is rather inspiring. It gives the underlying message, that even though you may feel it, no man is an island.

This book is guaranteed to leave you feeling connected to the main character Angel, because through everything, she has nothing but sheer determination and a passion for life that is rarely seen these days.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a good page turner filled with tension and suspense. 

If you have read the book tell me what you thought? (no spoilers)

Rate: 4/5

  2. Great review!! Sounds good even though I dont usually read those type of books.

  3. I'm reviewing this book for a school project and my opinion is, while it is a completely thrilling story, the plot did have some quite large loopholes.

    brilliant review by the way :)

  4. It was ok but i would not say that i liked it. Someone else might though.
