Rachel, the lead character is what you would expect from most 16 year olds, except she’s got Warrior abilities that give her an advantage over other humans. She uses these abilities to destroy the vampires and werewolves that have driven humans underground. It’s no problem for me to hang out in her head all day because she’s realistic, pragmatic, and funny. Rachel has so many facets to her and she doesn't get hung up in an Eeyore way about things. She can be emotional, but she doesn't allow her emotions to rule her.
There was plenty of chemistry with Rachel and Jason, the werewolf who ends up kidnapping her. Young love at its finest with plenty of hilarity ensuing. There are also some other hot guys we get to meet that opens Rachel’s eyes about her destiny and what she wants or needs.
This series is not like anything I’ve ever read, but to compare, it’d be like Buffy the Vampire slayer with a bit of Paranormalcy humor, lightly sprinkled with Hunger Games elements. Plenty of secondary character love with a good plot, twists and surprises, this book will have you wanting more!
The council is made up of Isaac Icahn and his two sons Liam and Noah, Patrick Lyons (her best friends father), two other warriors John Cohen and Raj Moore, and the tie breaker, Mia Sandry. Their decision, she goes out alone, to the Hudson Outpost, deliver the message and return the next night. Rachel is sure they don't expect her to live, and quite frankly she has her doubts as well.
Her send off is not traditional as only her beloved instructor Keith Endover and Patrick are there. This is one of my favorite scenes and had me tearing up.
On the surface Rachel is saved from a vampire, that would have been her end, by werewolves. Wolves she didn't sense as she should have been able to, and then taken captive.
Recovering from the illness contracted from the vampire's claws, Rachel learns much from these wolves she cannot sense. Things that will change the course of the war against the monsters.
While there is only the promise of romance in this book, there is suspense and lots of action. I cannot guess how the events in this book will influence the next. I look forward to the next one in the series.
I loved the way the author was clear with her description and writing of this story for you can even imagine yourself being there. Having to live under ground because above ground it was taken over by monsters. I thought that the book was worth reading!
Rachel Clancy was a 16 yr. old who was born with a specific set of genes that lets her fight monsters, so she has trained her whole life to kill vampires and werewolves. She is unprepared for the deception and betrayal that awaits her. She meets Jason (strapping wolf shifter) who comes to her rescue, then when she is taken to where they keep the prisoners she meets Deacon (warrior in training) and Chad (buffed warrior) who all seem to crave for Rachel's affection after meeting her. So this is a must get book to read and find out what happens. I also can't wait to see what happens next.
This book is definitely an exception. Rachel has just turned sixteen and she is in the warrior group due to her genetic gene make up. Living with out her mother because she was killed and a dad that is a drunk due to her death has left her feeling all alone. She has her best friend and her family that treat her very well.
Her first assignment above ground is the do a mission by herself. This is not normal and she finds out is due to her dad abandoning his job and everyone getting killed on the team.
Jason is a werewolf that is a pack that is not killers anyone. Rachel falls for him and his dad leaves her to fight vampires and werewolves who are evil. When she returns home she finds out Chad has always wanted her just waited for her to age.
Plots and twists. Love and betrayal. These are just a few you will find in this book. Rebecca has done an awesome job in telling this story. I know I will follow this series to see what happens next.
I normally don't read anything in the young adults genre BUT it was written by an author who has fast become one of my favorite writers. So here I am and WOW it was awesome! I love the characters and how the interactions and development. Highly entertaining! The action was super fun and the twist and turns had me at the edge of my seat. Don't miss it
Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly loved it.

Die Geschichte ist gut, gut geschrieben, spannend und etwas anders als die Norm. Die Hauptprotagonistin weist eine schöne Entwicklung auf, muss schnell erwachsen werden und sich beweisen, auch ohne Unterstützung. Ein toller Einstieg in diese Welt.
