With everyone around them in danger, will these three families come together setting aside all differences or will they stick to their own agenda while everyone around them dies?
With a story similar to many I have heard recently, the authors debut novel, seem very solid with its very strong characters and plot line. I am anxious to find out what happens in the rest of the series. Kyle Prue, although being a first-time author and the fact that he is young did nothing to harm his story telling capabilities in the least. I liked his writing and look forward to reading more written by him.
