Product Description

Life has dealt Christian Morris one blow too many. After his mother’s untimely death left him in the care of his distant, workaholic father, family life became anything but happy. Now, after eight years of neglect and loneliness, he can’t think of a reason to stay. The promise of a new beginning beckons, and with bags packed, Christian embarks on what he anticipates will be an uneventful roadtrip to Canada — and freedom from his pain. But in a twist of fate, his plans take a drastic detour in the form of a beautiful and frightened girl. Scarlett, a British teenager, suddenly appears in his life — and she’s in trouble.

Blind since birth, Scarlett Becket has virtually been abandoned. Following her completion of school, Scarlett’s world is shattered the night she’s abducted from her temporary London flat. Unable to see her kidnappers, she is uncertain as to who they are or why they chose her. What she does know is that in a series of vivid dreams, much like those she has had before, she has foreseen a grisly murder — and this time, she’s the victim. Scarlett’s narrow escape and encounter with Christian has provided her a temporary refuge, but it’s only a matter of time before her captors pick up her trail.

Determined to protect Scarlett, whatever the price, Christian embarks on a dangerous course as he fights to keep her alive. And in entering the twisted maze of betrayal and redemption, he quickly realizes that life looks different when you may not live to see tomorrow.

As I said in the title, this book is a delight! Julie Daines writes with wit, intensity and authenticity.

Not many female writers can get it right when it comes to writing teenage boys (Robin McKinnley's 'Robin Hood' comes to mind, {but, to her credit, she goes on to get it right in 'Dragonhaven'}). As the mother of 3 of the aforementioned teenage boys, all I can say is she got it right! (The scene in the mall is classic!)

The British-isms are a witty touch and are a venue for Ms. Daines to express her wit.

I'm always on the look-out for writers who can do humor. They are few and far between, but Ms. Daines has it down to a fine science. Clever dialogue, funny situations; she's quite a master.

A thoroughly enjoyable book!

Keep writing, Ms. Daines! I eagerly await more!

Romance, Intrigue and a Sassy Brit

I loved everything about this book. The romance, the main character and the sassy blind girl. Not to mention the mystery of who is trying to kill them both or the exploration of relationships.
Julie is a good, clean writer and this book will be enjoyed by all ages, especially teens.

This book was SO GOOD!
It has everything I love in a book...suspense, mystery, and humor, all rolled-up in a little bit of romance.
The storyline is awesome!
This book is definitely a must-read!

Knocked it out of the park!

Julie Daines knocked it out of the park! The pacing was just right. Lots of edge of your seat tension, but moments of quiet and humor too. Plausible character motivation and action. Strong, believable characters. Solid writing.

This book is fantastic! Trust me on this one. Read it! I give it 5 stars. Recommended to teen readers, 14 and up, who like contemporary mystery/suspense/action and to adults who like a good suspense without the gore.

Great for Teens
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

After 2 people in my household read the book cover to cover and would not let go if it until they were finished, I realized what a great book this is. I have purchased one for each member of the family. Everyone is a 5 of 5 stars. It is nice to see an author who can tell a story without recycling ideas. Good material, interesting characters, and refreshing writing style. A definite recommend for both young men and young women.

Refreshing and exciting!

One of my favorite YA adult books in a long while! The plot was perfectly paced, I LOVED the two main characters, and the fact that it's told from a male point of view is so refreshing (we haven't had a good male POV since Harry Potter). Just the right blend of mystery, action, and romance. Excited to read more books from this awesome debut author!

Definitely worth reading
