Release Date: 17th March 2014

Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Catalina has never seen the sky. As a mage, it’s illegal for her to leave the underground city she lives in. The sun and moon are only fantastical stories of a land far away. So when Catalina stumbles upon a tunnel leading to the surface, she can’t resist the temptation to see the surface world.

But instead of enjoying a night beneath the stars for the first time, Catalina emerges upon the scene of a savage murderer harvesting faery body parts. She’s nearly his next victim, but is rescued by a grim boy named Will who has a troubling connection to the killer.

Even more disquieting is Catalina’s criminal status upon returning home. Someone with political clout has framed her for the vicious slayings. Now on the run from the law, Catalina must uncover Will’s tie to the serial killing of faeries, as well as stop a bloodthirsty murderer to prove her innocence, or face a death sentence.

She’s forced to leave her father behind when she’s taken in by a group determined to keep her safe. Here Anamae searches for answers about this hidden world.

Review: Trust

Trust
Trust by Tim Mettey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In my mind, I could see all the different possibilities of what was about to happen, and there was only one scenario where Chad wouldn’t get hurt.

Three months ago, Nicholas Keller found out he was part of an ancient group called the Thusians. He thought his life was settling down, until his new neighbors move in. Now he finds himself taking part of an impossible search. In order to protect everyone he cares about, he must figure out who to trust.

Trust picks up where Secrets leaves off, tossing Nicholas and Elle back in to danger. The writing is clearer (perhaps due to not having to reestablish the world) and there is a nice build of anticipation about the search. Readers who liked following Nicholas in Secrets will enjoy Trust even more.

Like Secrets, Trust was an entertaining read, fast-paced and full of mystery that keeps readers turning the page. Nicholas’s story doesn’t seem over yet, and readers will be curious to see what his next challenge will be.
