My thoughts: Alana does an excellent job of tackling hard issues with Kimmie's story! Kimmie has suffered for years at the hands of her abusive step father. Now that her mom has supposedly committed suicide, it's up to her to get her half brother out of the path of his father. Alana does an excellent job of writing about the hard subject of abuse without being too graphic. It's a hard line to toe when writing about things like abuse, and I thought she did a good job.
I like how Kimmie's sister comes into play with the story, and the things the two of them must work through.
Another great story by Alana Terry!

Something some of my fans may not know about me is while I grew up in the continental United States, I have made my home with my husband and children in Alaska for many years now. I have grown to love Alaska, which is probably why I was so excited to write this series about the Alaskan wilderness to share a bit of my favorite parts of Alaska with my readers.
In Alaska, we have a phrase that perfectly describes the fall season: Termination Dust.
That’s when the first snow falls on the mountains, signifying the end of summer. Fall in Alaska is beautiful. Orange on the tips of the trees lend a splash of color against the backdrop of unending green. For the first time since May, it gets dark enough to see the stars. If you brave the cold and happen to be awake at 1 am, you might even see some shooting stars.
I hope you enjoy reading about Kimmie and her autistic brother as much as I enjoyed writing their story. As with all my suspense novels, if you like determined characters, harsh landscapes, and faith under fire, get ready to dive headfirst into a gripping adventure today!
