I am so glad that this series is over. I had to read the series to the end because I had to know what happened (I'm just that way). Not a lot new or different happens in this book that hasn't already been done and said several times in the previous books. The ending totally sucked. Such a big build up and then what? Now there are 2 of her, repeating herself over and over and bossing people around? If the author needed things to say in this book, she should have waited for a little inspiration instead of repeating herself sooooooooooo much - it was a painful read. The series did start out really good, but by the 5th book, it's heading down hill!

OK! So if I thought that Liana repeated herself in the last book, this one is almost unbearable. I found myself zoning out and not paying attention to the story just so that I could get to the end. Liana is getting more and more unbearably bossy and the conversations she has with herself in her head are becoming increasingly ridiculous. She has this "family" of friends that she in charge of but doesn't let them in on what's going on. What is family for, but to be helpful? Even if it's for moral support or as a sounding board...she just won't let anyone in...It is not a sign of strength, it actually shows weakness. Most of her friends are the same age and older than she is and she is kind of a like the tower nazi right now!

I like the story but the author is repeating herself a lot.
Liana says a lot of words but nothing new, the story is getting a smidge redundant, because it is starting to repeat itself too much and she is getting a little too wordy. I don't know if I can make it through the next book if it's anything like this one. Did I say she repeats herself? Exactly!

The story was ok. It was a little too sexually graphic for my taste... I won't listen to the rest of the books.
The narrators voice is too Whiny, she talks very juvenile...very 15 year oldish, and just doesn't do the author any favors in getting the feel of the story across.

Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years. Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape.

Kate Reinders is a good narrator, but Stephen Bel Davies voice doesn't match the character and the emotions that he puts into the story are not always appropriate for what is said. The character is a tough assassin and the narrator's voice is way too feminine for the part. It just doesn't match. I'm not finished with the book yet, I'll write a book review later.

Would you try another book from C. J. Redwine and/or Renée Chambliss?

I would try another book from CJ but I would not listen to another book by Renee Chambliss.
If I read/listen to the last book, I think I will read it, I just can't listen to Renee.

What did you like best about this story?

It's a good read, but I thought book 1 was better.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

There are several spots where she is too monotone. As a female reading mostly male parts, she just has too much of a feminine, soft voice. Her voice doesn't even match what I envision Rachel to be. Her voice is terrible for the masculine voices.

Any additional comments?

I really don't like books that are written in 1st person present. I know there are a lot of authors that do this - I think it is a very distracting read.
