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 L O S T in this new action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.
Behind the Stars was released as a serial, six episodes coming together to now form the whole. I don’t know if you followed along with my individual reviews, but it might be easier to go back and read those, since I’m finding it hard to think of it as an entire book now. I keep seeing it in my mind as individual stories, more like a book series, instead of novellas. Reading it in smaller groups like that made it feel longer than just one book. And now it’s over. 🙁
I’m going to miss Prentiss! She was such a great protagonist, and a perfect role model for young girls. She is strong, independent and has no problem thinking for herself. Even though she is tiny and seen as weak, she proves them time and time again that she can take the reins and solve problems. Size doesn’t always matter! Gallatin is the perfect partner for her. He doesn’t only see her small stature. He isn’t blind to her potential, and encourages her to live up to it. The beginning of the book focuses on the secondary characters around Prentiss, while the second half of the books shows a whole different collections of people, living under a very different set of circumstances. Is that ominous enough for you?
Leigh Moore has written books over multiple genres and I have loved them all. She is an eclectic author, perfect for an eclectic reader like me. Keep up the good work Leigh! 😀
