To keep the people she loves safe, Sara left everything she knew behind. She soon learns this new world is nothing like her old one, and she struggles to make a place for herself among the Mohiri. But it soon becomes apparent to Sara and to everyone one around her that she is not your typical warrior.
As the weeks pass, Sara builds new relationships, copes with her new trainers, and tries to manage her ever-changing powers, while keeping her unique heritage a secret. Looming in the background is the constant shadow of the Master who will do anything to find her.
Sara finds herself on a journey of self-discovery that uncovers her true strengths and awakens a part of her she never knew existed. She experiences the delight of new friendships, the sweetness and pain of first love, and a loss so deep it could be the thing that finally breaks her. At the end of it all, she discovers that the one place she was supposed to be safe might not be the refuge she thought it was.
You won't regret buying this.
Let me start by saying that this is not your average YA paranormal novel, it is anything but that. Refuge is full of vampires, werewolves, and magical creatures, yet it isn't anything like you would expect. Usually I'm able to predict the outcome of books like this based on the fact that most authors have the same ideas and plots about vampires, werewolves, etc., but this is definitely not the case. Every time I went to turn the page, I could never guess what would happen. Karen Lynch went above and beyond with the world she created. I can't even begin to explain how excited I am to find a book that finally had me sitting on the edge of my seat, hanging at its every word. Throughout the book, it was easy to feel the main character's emotion. I was ecstatic, upset, on the verge of tears, you name it. This has easily became one of my favorite series, and I will be buying the third book with no doubt of being disappointed. Great job, Karen.
Loved this book! Definitely a must read. I plan on finishing the series.
Great series for those who love an independent damsel in distress type of set up.
