Rain Wilson thought she knew where she came from. A small farming town, forgotten and missed by everyone. After learning that her estranged mother is missing, she realizes there is a lot she doesn't know about the man who has raised her. She's waited for her mother for 10 years. Now 18 and full of curiosity, she embarks on a harrowing journey to find her mother. She uncovers a trail of lies, deceit and quite possibly a plot too scary to fight against. How far will she really go to save her mother?

The author did an amazing job with this story. It is complex with lots of action and some twists. I felt like I usually do when I'm watching one of those action packed movies my husband loves.
Rain is a 18 year old girl that has been raised by her dad. Her mom left 10 years ago. She doesn't know why she has never returned. Rain is totally oblivious to her parents lives before she was born.
Her parents have a lot of secrets they hid from her. She ends up becoming a soldier in order to find her mom and things go down hill from there. She meets a handsome soldier named Prescott. Can he be trusted?
Rain's dad ends up getting together with his old special forces crew in order to help her. Lots of ups and downs.
This story would have been a 5 star rating if the romance between Rain and Prescott had been developed a little. This is not a HEA book. It ends on a cliffhanger. I assume there will be another book to continue the story...
The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life.

T.R. Horne crafts an incredibly suspense story with an interesting main character. Rain Wilson is a girl with a missing history. She has no idea who she is or where she came from. All she knows is that she is on the trail to finding her estranged mother and will stop at nothing to find her.
Holly Lindin provides the narration for Girl Soldier and does a really nice job with it. Production quality and narration style worked really well with this book, adding to it instead of taking away from it. I will be keeping an eye out for other books that Lindin narrates.
I'm always a little skeptical when a book lists some of your favorite books or movies in their description. Sometimes this is just a play to get you to read a subpar book that is slightly similar. Girl Soldier was not one of these books. It was compared to The Bourne Identity and it really does draw some parallels and similarities from that series.
Thankfully Horne understands that readers sometimes need a break from the non-stop action that this book has. The author was able to place little bits of humor and light-heartedness into the story keeping it a little bit lighter. Horne's writing when it came to the action scenes was perfect. It really reminded me of the best in the business.
I'm not sure if it's because I'm a male and I know who my parents are. Or if it's because I'm not a trained assassin with no memory, but I found it hard to related to Rain. Don't get me wrong, she was an absolute BA, but sometimes it's hard to follow a story that you have little to no understanding of where the main character is coming from. Thankfully Horne's writing style was so good and the book was so action packed that this didn't really take anything away for me.

Suspense at it's best, T.R. Horne crafts a story of Rain Wilson, a girl with a missing history. She has no idea who she is or where she came from. Wilson discovers a trail of lies that she must follow to find her estranged mother.
The narration was done by Holly Lindin, who does a really nice job voicing Rain and everyone else. The style and speed were really easy to follow and the production quality was also excellent. Lindin has a nice voice and I will definitely look for other books that she narrates.
It's funny to me when a description names some of my favorite books or a favorite genre of mine I'm always a little wary. This book is definitely similar to The Bourne Identity in more ways than one. The style of writing, especially when it comes to the action scenes were very similar to the Bourne books/movies (which I absolutely love).
T.R. Horne has an excellent knack for knowing when to sprinkle in the light-hearted parts, but this book is so much of a thrill ride it almost gave me a nosebleed from excitement. Horne is an excellent storyteller and I'll be looking for more books from her in the future.
Rain Wilson is an interesting protagonist. On one hand she's easy to follow and like, and on the other I foud myself having a hard time relating to her. Now, this doesn't always take me out of a story but a few times I found that this pulled me out of an otherwise enjoyable novel.
Overall, the story was really interesting. There were a few parts where I felt lost, but the story then brought me back in. This would be a wonderful story to read on a long plane ride.

Really enjoyed this book. Suspense, lots of action, betrayal, mystery everything you need to keep you glued to a really good book.
Every family has secrets, but Rain's family secrets put her on a path that take her into the world of the CIA.
Holly Lindin did a great job narrating the story. The pace, clarity of narration, different character voices, everything was great.
Very entertaining book. This is a book that I will listen to repeatedly and recommend often.

Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
I received this book for free by the author/narrator for an honest and unbiased review of the book.
I really enjoyed this book, I enjoyed seeing Rain grow up and mature in her own way and time. This book was about family, love, who to trust and determination on everyone's part to bring down the bad guys. I am hoping for a book 2, I would definitely buy it. This was a suspenseful twist and turn sort of book and I just really liked it.
The narrator did a great job with all the voices and accents, I would listen to books by her again as well.
This is totally worth a credit!!
I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!
Once you get over the fact that this story is asking you to believe a lot, or suspend your belief on basic common sense levels, it is one heck of a suspenseful, action-packed, that DID NOT just happen, heart thumping, OMGosh-what-did-I-just-read, oh, I forgot to breathe, listen.
It starts out pretty innocuous but don't be fooled, the adrenaline pump-fest is just around the corner.
The narrator was excellent and was probably the biggest catalyst towards keeping you at the edge of your seat during this listen. If you can get past the head scratchers, (which were minor in the big picture but did make you wonder) this was a very good listen.
I really enjoyed this book! Details, Action, Family and Romance, all in one! I WILL recommend this book to all my fellow book lovers! I've never enjoyed a narrator as much as I did with this book!
