After her sister’s death, Sophie must now care for her nephew, Toby, also known as Tagan’s child. Suddenly, the two are in grave danger, and Sophie learns that the boy was “special and unusual.” Mmm, interesting.
The danger ploy was obviously intriguing, making me wonder about the mystery behind Tagan and his child. I mean, what was all the commotion? Who were they? And why did they want to kill the boy?
Like I said, this was an interesting premise…for the first few chapters. Unfortunately, I could not get past the lagging pace, which was deterring. And the fact that this war was due to some government conspiracy was lame and confusing, and it did not help the story any.
My rating: 2 stars
