Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things
- Graduation is two weeks away.
- Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.
- She’s getting a job with air-conditioning.
She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work.
And she never expected to become a hero.
Red Dawn meets LOST in this New Adult action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.
I have read nearly every single book that Leigh has written, and I have loved them all. Though nothing could have prepared me for her newest story. Up until this point, they’ve all been contemp romance. Now? Leigh shows off her versatility by tackling paranormal. This is completely different from anything she’s written to date, and I am so excited for this new endeavor!
Within mere pages I had a good grasp of who Prentiss Puckett is, and what life was like in Dabb Creek. That is… before she was taken. Then the pace took off, and Prentiss was thrown into a whole world of trouble. She’s kidnapped and drugged, but she isn’t the only who went missing from Dabb Creek that day. Each chapter begins with a brief glimpse into the past, reliving memories. Though the scenes are brief, I feel like it’s such an important aspect of the story, to keep Prentiss rooted, to remind her of what she’s fighting for.
Learning To Spy:
Part 2 continues right where Captive left off. We continue to catch peeks into the past, and the story begins to delve into more of the character development. It’s really interesting to get to know the characters both as they were, and as they are now, at the same time. And strangely enough, I find myself most curious about her captors. We’re given just enough information to keep a small (teeny tiny) amount of hope that they aren’t all as bad as they first seemed.
The pace in this one isn’t breakneck, but now we begin with the speculation. *Are they who they say they are? What was in those boxes? Are they watching? Are they listening?* Prentiss doesn’t know who she can trust, or even if they’ll be alive long enough to help her. She’s beginning to understand that she needs to help herself.
I am so excited for this serial! If I didn’t have to wait for each episode, I would devour the whole thing in one sitting!
