Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom's most feared assassin. Though she works for the powerful and ruthless Assassin's Guild, Celaena yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam. When Celaena's scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, she finds herself acting independently of his wishes - and questioning her own allegiance. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies alike, and discovers that she feels far more for Sam than just friendship.

I enjoyed this book enough to read the next one, even though I have read some ugly reviews. I liked the characters. I loved them in the prequel. I knew him to be rash and her to be a little over reactive, but was excited to see their story play out.
I get he thought of them and lived with his mistake, but I don't think he tried enough ... Not until they were convenient for him. I get her as only a mother would.

“I believe that if you’ve been through hell and you come out the other side, you appreciate the little things more.”

Beautiful story. This book is 2 stories weaved together.

Katy gets pregnant at a very early age in a time when things like that are highly frowned upon. Lots of grown up decisions are forced on her and some taken from her. She is sent away to live with her aunt in order to not disgrace the family. After tragic incidents occur, Kate decides to become a paramedic after marrying her high school sweetheart.

Ryan was a punk kid with no responsibilities until a tragic incident turns his life around. Now, he is a doctor in Canada with a family.

Though destiny, these 2 people from different parts of the world will come together after many trials and tribulations.

Piper has always been the nosey, pipsqueak, loving sibling in the McKenna household. Her heart is too big and she believes in everyone and everything. She always sees the good in people and situation. She is fiercely loyal to God and her family. When her brother is arrested for the murder of his teammate, she knows he is innocent. She sets out on her own to find the real killer ... putting her life at risk. Landon - an "adopted" brother - knows he will have to put aside his job as Deputy to keep the woman he loves safe - even is she could never love him the same way. Piper is not sure when it happened, but she is seeing Landon in a whole new light - He is gruff, but so handsome. If only he would see her as a woman instead of "pipsqueak".

We also get a peak into Gage and his past - along with his feelings toward God.

When her friend vanishes from a cruise ship, reporter Darcy St. James isn't satisfied with their explanation that she simply left her job of her own accord. Something isn't lining up, and Darcy believes the only way to find the truth is to put herself in Abby's position. Within days, Darcy learns her friend wasn't the only person to disappear mysteriously. Last summer, a woman vanished under almost identical circumstances. Gage McKenna has taken a summer-long stint leading adventure excursions for the passengers of various cruise lines that dock for a few days of sightseeing.

AMAZING. Better than the first two and those were amazing as well. all of her books start with a bang and don't stop. I could not put it down until I was finished. Gage and Darcy "run" into each other an Gage is a judgmental and obstinate as ever - He questions Darcy's character which in turn make her question herself.

Kirra is a native of Yancy who went away for college but has returned to take over her dad's vet clinic. We know that from Kayden and Jake's book. Kirra is the neice of an Iditarod racer, Frank, who is forced to leave the race and break the law. Kirra's cousin, Meg, is kidnapped to insure Frank completes his task before the race ends.

Reef McKenna is the last of his family to find God and love. He is Kirra's life long nemesis (since age 5 when he called her stinky girl at recess) and SAR partner during the race. When they discover Meg has been kidnapped and Frank is being forced to do things he would never consider, they band together to save each other and Kirra's family.

I have loved each and every book in this series. Every book including this one starts off with action and suspense and never looses momentum.

This was disturbing, graphic, gross. I can't even wrap my mind around the fact that this could probably happen.

Pieces of dead bodies are being found scattered along the highway in rural Tennessee. The FBI is called in to assist the local FBI and - "I don't really want to get involved" sheriff's office.
