The Warrior, #1

Rachel Clancy lives in an underground habitat where she was born. Rachel is a Warrior that will be sent above ground on her sixteenth birthday to fight the monsters that destroyed everything and caused Armageddon. Rachel lives with her father who is a drunk. He's been drunk every day since her mother was killed by vampires. Rachel goes to a school where you learn to fight the monsters and to protect the humans that live in the habitat.

When Rachel receives her assignment on her sixteenth birthday she finds out that she will have to go above ground on her own, all because the leader of the habitat has it out for her because of a mistake her father made years ago. She is sent to an outpost to check on the other warriors that used to be there but no one has heard from in over a month. She takes off on her journey and is kidnapped by werewolves who claim to be different then the monsters. She falls in love with the alphas son Jason.

What will Rachel have to do to survive a revenge that is more then what anyone is expecting? What will Rachel do to be with the one she loves? What will Rachel do when she finds out everything she knows and has grown up believing is a lie? What will Rachel do when she has to say goodbye to everything that she has known since she was born?

Rachel Clancy is the type of girl that I would like to be friends with. She is a very developed character, which you only see develop more as the novel progresses. The story line is original and very well created. The author makes you live out the scenes with Rachel. I really did find myself being caught up in this great story and not wanting to stop reading. There are twists and turns and you never know what is going to happen next. There are tear filled moments that leave you thinking you may cry with Rachel. This book comes highly recommended by me.
