I am Sandra, a girl from a little village in Africa. I knew I had a love for words and stories when I picked up my first book on Red Indians when I was about 6/7 Years. I cant remember the name of the book but there was something about this other world that drove me insane. IT haunted my dreams and soon I could see myself in this new world. Because my world was very limited I realized that I could travel through the words. That was how I found myself preferring to read quietly in a corner than play outside with the rest. I was about 8/9 when I picked up a pen to write. Since then I have written but its only until 2015 that I decided to publish with Lulu. I write fiction and scrips. I also work in the Film industry and Design. I enjoy Digital art drawing. reading online comics, Anime and music.

I didn't know that this book was part of a series, but that said, it was not one of those books where one has to follow the story line from the beginning.
It started out a bit slow for me, then picked up pace pretty fast, which is something I look for in a book. The author is very engaging in how she tells the story. There is a certain ebb and flow to it.
I was a little bit mixed up when she started interchanging the names (as I have mentioned, I was not aware that it's part of a series) but that got clarified shortly after.
Nina/ Nalia is quite a character to behold. Lance is easily taken by her, although he was looking for an angle to go about his investigation. She seems to have a way with the people that surround her but at the same time is easily influenced, especially with the drug ring.
I would have wished for more depth in terms of character building. Perhaps that was covered in the first book - I will have to find out. There was also some sense of suspense throughout the story, which is good as it keeps the reader intrigued. However, I thought it would end on a higher note than it did.
All in all, I very much enjoyed reading it and recommend it. I am definitely following the series to find out more. I give it the 4th rating
