Goodreads Description

Terrorists have invaded Sydney, and Allison King barely escapes her brother’s wedding reception alive. She and her siblings flee, but their parents are killed by firing squad.

Now Ali’s on the run and terrified. While searching for other survivors, she is captured by the General who leads the invasion. He’s smitten by Ali, and when she refuses to submit to his whims, he brands her for death. In a wild act of defiance, she snatches the branding rod and sears the mark onto his face. Marking not only him but also sealing her fate. Ali manages to escape and flees into the bush once more where she finds a group in hiding. Even with the scars left by the General, Ali learns to love and falls in love with the young man who found her—Damien Rogers. 

But the General is hunting her. When he discovers their location, and finds her with another man—Damien—his wrath is kindled and his obsession is inflamed. Ali must put herself on the line or the General could kill her family, those who help her, and most significantly, the man she loves.

My Review 

This is one of those books that you can’t put down. The action starts right from the beginning and doesn’t let up. Allison is a very strong character, and I loved seeing her weaknesses when it comes to matters of the heart.

The General wins biggest creep award in a NA novel. His infatuation with Allison is intense and tortures. There were times I thought she would cave in, but she never did.

There’s romance, and though it may seem rushed at first, when the next day may be your last would you wait? I don’t think I would. I’d add more but I don’t want to give spoilers, but let’s just say Damien isn’t the only game in town ; )

Religion plays a part in the story but it doesn’t come across heavy handed. It’s nicely woven into the plot.

This is a great story for anyone who loves a courageous suspenseful read with romance.

    I really love reading books that put a new outlook on tradition. This is defiantly one of those books that you have shared in the above article. This story is unique and has interesting characters. I cannot wait until the second book comes out. I must take this book with me during my Washington DC cherry blossom tours.

    Really nice sharing I love to read books. Because booking reading and travel are my favorite hobbies. I mostly read travel books because travel is my passion. I have a huge collection of travel books. I don’t like to read stories books but after reading your blog I want to read these type of books.
