Nathan Kelley has just about given up. After being tortured and held captive in the mountain caves in Afghanistan, he's not sure how much more he can take. But suddenly, he hears the voice of an angel that warms his cold body and gives him hope. Not sure if the voice is real or not, he believes her when she tells him to hold onto hope and help is on the way.
Shea Peterson's not sure how or why she heard the tortured man's voice, but she did and now she can't stop doing everything she can with her gift to help him. She takes his pain, even while he's being tortured, in hopes that it will ease his mind and help him. But helping Nathan comes at a cost to Shea, since she feels his pain herself. Feeling that type of pain doesn't help when you're running from unknown people that want to hurt her.
This is my favorite of the KGI books. Nathan will break your heart in this book. He comes back from his ordeal terribly scarred, almost more emotionally than physically. While his mind tells him that maybe Shea wasn't truly real, his heart tells him otherwise. And it's this internal struggle, along with coping with the aftermath of his capture that has him withdrawing from everyone, including his twin Joe. It's not until he hears the desperate call from Shea (in his head, of course) that Nathan starts to act like the Nathan of old and jumps to rescue the woman who saved him from the pits of hell.
Poor Shea doesn't know what hit her when she finally meets up with Nathan. Not only does she get Nathan, but the entire Kelly clan and KGI. She's desperate to save her sister Grace, but doesn't know who she should trust to help her. In the end, she trusts in Nathan and his family to not only save her but also her sister.
You'll be on the edge of your seat with this one and it's so worth the ride.
She came to him when he needed her the most.
She came to him at his lowest point. The voice of an angel, a whisper in the dark. She's the only thing that gets Nathan Kelly through his captivity, the endless days of torture and the fear that he'll never return to his family. With her help, he's able to escape. But he isn't truly free, because now she's disappeared and he's left with an all-consuming emptiness as he struggles to pick up the pieces of his life. Did he imagine his angel? Or is she out there, needing his help as he'd once needed hers?
Now he rushes to save her before it's too late.
Shea has been on the run from people who will stop at nothing to exploit her unique abilities. She never wanted to drag Nathan, who'd already suffered so much, into danger, but she doesn't have a choice so she reaches out to him for help. Finally face-to-face after having already formed a soul-deep bond in hell, their emotional connection is even more powerful than their telepathic one. Nathan refuses to consider ever letting her go again, but she worries they can never have a life free of the dangers that dog her every step. He'll protect her with his every breath, but can he convince her that they are meant to face these threats together?
