Plot (from Goodreads): Sixteen-year-old Samantha Ruiz has a lot on her mind. The crush who kissed her but changed his mind. The BFF who thinks Sam is in an abusive relationship. The geneticist who wanted Sam dead but now wants her ALIVE. And of course, Sam’s still dealing with a tendency to disappear into thin air.
When Sam learns of her nemesis Helmann’s Nazi-like plan to establish a Thousand-Year Reign, she’s determined to fight him. Along with Will and Mickie, Sam flees to France to meet Sir Walter—their best hope for stopping Helmann’s brave new world.
But Sam isn’t any safer in France. Someone is following her. Someone invisible. Sam will have to figure out how to hide from an enemy she can’t even see.
Why I Read this Book: I received a free electronic copy of the book for review purposes from the author. This in no way influenced my review of the book.
I really love this series. It has a rich plot and dynamic characters. Although the plot has some scifi/fantasy elements, it is realistic. The romance aspect is a little cheesy and predictable, but it is still suspenseful and lovely. Every page is filled with action and suspense. This book has a few new characters that are introduced and I really enjoyed them. I cannot tell you too much about this book without giving away parts of the series because it is a sequel. Just know that this series should be on your TBR list if you have not read it yet.
