Overview: Allie and Rachel are on the run, being moved every couple of weeks to stay away from Nathanial. After being found and shot at while staying in France, Allie’s grandmother decides to bring the girls back to school. Finally home, everything is changed martial law has been instituted and Rachel has decided to join Night School. Through all of this, Allie is once more confused about her feelings for Sylvain and Carter. When it comes time to choose who will go with her to a not so secret meeting, she chooses Sylvain. Unfortunately Sylvain is whisked away to his father’s bedside after a carbomb almost killed him. Leaving Carter to go to the meeting. Things go wrong at the late night meeting, putting Allie on the run again. This time with Carter. Just as the calvary appears to get them, Nathaniel’s people show up and cause a fight sending Allie speeding away to school leaving everyone else behind.
Review: The suspense is great. Poor Allie just can’t get out of the fire without moving into an even hotter one. She’s torn between two boys as well as being a pawn in a game between her grandmother and someone who could be considered an uncle. What is she to do? She has to side with with her grandmother, because Nathanial has shown he is crazy but while she has the appearance of choice her grandmother is maneuvering her without her knowledge. Every time she tries to move on her own, everything blows up. Her world is falling apart but she is still hanging in there. I can’t wait to see how she handles everything in the next book. For her boy troubles, she needs to make up her mind. I know she seems to make a decision in this book, but she also made a different decision in the beginning. Unless this final move really is the FINAL decision, I like the idea that she is still undecided.
