Wow! My first read by Ciara Knight and all I can think of is wow! I loved the characters and the relationships between them. I do not think I have read a book where I have loved or hated a character and jumped so much in one book before. You get great writing and Ms. Knight keeps the reader interested with nonstop action, great characters, and an emotional storyline. It’s downright good writing. Well done Ms. Knight. I cannot wait to read more from you!
