The Broken

The Apostles, #1

The story begins slowly and builds up the characters. At first I thought it would be another "who-done-it" mysteries that follow a general outline,but the budding romance between Kate and Hayden adds a little spice and the supporting characters add humor and heart. There is a good deal of action and fighting--and not just with the male protagonist. Kate is a kick-butt character when forced to fight. The ending is a surprise (as a good mystery should be) but with little foreshadowing, leaving the reader bemused and befuddled. Overall an enjoyable read.

Kate Johnson has been on the run every since she survived the attack of Broadcast Butcher. She is perfectly content living under the radar and far from danger but Hayden Reed needs her help to draw out the killer. Both of them are determined to end the killings and both of them fear for Kate's life. As the danger grows, so does their affection and desire for each other. If Kate survives, do they have a chance at happily forever?
