This story starts off with a bang. Cade Shephard wakes up in a dodgy motel room with burns to his hands and no recollection of how they happened, or who he is. Chapter one had me hooked from the get go and I sympathised with Cade. How would you feel if you woke up, with no memory and have to walk out of there with no sense of direction or know whether the crappy car sitting in front of the motel is yours?
Embry is one character I actually didn't like when she first came on the scene. I couldn't pinpoint exactly what it was but it took a few chapters for me to warm up to her.
The one thing I wished the story did was go on for a bit longer with Cade in the dark. On the second chapter I got what was going on from Embry's point of view and I hoped he would have gone through with a bit more detective work without it being served on a platter by the reader. In saying that though, there is a lot more to Embry and Cade's story that is slowly revealed throughout.
The story is action packed once everything has been laid out on the table and I found that I read through this quite quickly. It was a captivating read, though I wished it was longer.
Great start to a series.
