Wraith is full of suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat! As far as novellas go, this was an amazing one. The characters and plot weren’t rushed and it kept a great speed. Not rushed and not slow. This story has so much intrigue that I’m sitting here wishing for more pages so my questions are answered. I loved this story and will be eagerly waiting to see where the author goes next with it.
Kira is special. Not only does she have some pretty cool visions and dreams she’s also a great character. She’s independent and strong. Perhaps a bit too independent at times. Hunter is in love with her I believe. He really seems to balance her out more than she realizes. Kira has been through some crap in her life and it helps her when children start going missing. Kira and Hunter make a pretty great team!
I will be impatiently waiting to see what comes next for Kira and Hunter. I also want to know what that ending meant. Hopefully we will also get an idea of where her “powers” come from!
Sixteen years ago, Kira Chiklak’s mother promised her a miracle on Christmas morning. Instead, she woke to the news her brother was gone forever. The Alaskan pilot’s dreams have always told her the future but have never revealed the secrets of her past. Now Kira’s dreams are warning her another child in Amarok is in danger of meeting the same fate as her brother. As Kira races to save Annie Michaels’ life she comes to believe her past and Annie’s future are inextricably linked. The last thing Hunter Jackson expects to do during Spring Break is unravel a mystery. When Kira asks for his assistance, he can’t refuse her request. But can he help her protect Annie when his own heart is at risk?
Sometimes I wonder how things would have turned out if I hadn’t. If I’d kept my nose buried in that menu in search of a dish Icouldn’t pronounce. But I didn’t. I looked up and saw Annie hanging onto the banister as she descended the stairs that led to the Michaels’ apartment. She clung to the hand of a girl I guessed was her babysitter as the two of them made their way across the room toward the kitchen. Annie wore a pink fleece footie sleeper and her auburn hair hung loose around her face. I think that’s what pushed me over the edge. She looked so damn
innocent. I pushed my chair back from the table and grabbed the wolf hat out of my jacket pocket.
Hunter’s eyes darkened. “What are you doing?”
“Be right back.”
“I have to. I’m sorry.”
Before I could stop myself, I stood up and set off after Annie and the babysitter. They were waiting outside the kitchen doors. Annie was staring at the doors as if she were waiting for her mom to breeze through them, like she always did. The babysitter’s eyes flitted across the restaurant, looking for people she recognized. Then she turned back toward Annie and smiled down at her.
Liv appeared just as I reached Annie and the sitter. Her eyes locked onto mine and even Annie could read the warning there. Stay away from my child.
