I quite enjoyed this book was exhilarating. The action was very good, very fast paced, you really have no clue whats going to happen next. This book keeps you on your toes. Grace is such a tom-boy, she's knows a lot about nature, and is very aware of her surroundings. The forest that this books base is full of various flora and fauna, as well as perilous cliffs (figurative and literal), animals and people. The mystery is gripping, you really don't know what happened exactly until the end. Lot's of twists and turns, this book takes you every were and back again. The love triangle is engrossing, both the boy's, Wyn and Mo, are as different as can be. This is a very exciting book. I really loved this book.
There are some swear words, but like most book's I review only a few and (mostly) at appropriate times. This book might make you cry a little, so be warned. Not balling but a little teary eyed-ness. God is mentioned a couple of times. There is gore, and quite a bit of it. There are dead animals and people, people are shot, slammed into things, beaten, and completely knocked senseless. Among other things, Grace sneaks out of her house, spends the night with a boy, she steals her own motor bike from her mother while she is grounded, and breaks into a police captain's office and hacks his computer. There are some inapropriate comments, mostly about female body parts.
A good age to read this book would be thirteen, this is a mature book, but it is riveting. I would recommend this book to just about any one, as it has just about every thing. Murder, wilderness, survival, romance, police investigations, poaching, and scandal, this book pretty much covers all genera's. I would not recommend this for people who do not handle death and gore well. I hope you enjoyed my review, I will be posting a review of S. R. Johannes's new book On the Bright Side Thursday, February second, so please check it out! Bri π
