The Missing



Don't read this if you don't like spoilers. I tried but might have given somethings away. It's hard to review books without giving things away.

Taige Branch knew she was different as a child when her parents were killed and she woke screaming that they were gone. Her babysitter and he mother both tried to comfort her up until the police showed up at the door. She was sent to live with her minister uncle in Gulf Shores, Alabama who had some strange ideas about physics and he tried to beat the devil out of her. Her gift or curse depending upon who you talked to make her an outcast more so than her biracial background. But it helped her find people sometimes they were alive sometimes not. But Cullen Morgan one of the tourists that come every summer seemed to care less about her abilities and slowly their friendship grew into an adult love until Cullen's mother was kidnapped and brutally murdered. Cullen blamed Taige for not saving her and sent her away.
Taige and Cullen never forgot each other even though both moved on with their lives. And now Cullen needs her help again to find one he loves his daughter who is also physic. During their search they rekindle their relationship and find his daughter.
This book starts out a little slow and after they reconnect it begins to go faster. If you love Shi's hunters then this book is definitely not like those. It has less action and more conversations. I am hoping this is just the first in a series because if not i am going to be upset. This book although having a HEA for Taige and Cullen left many unanswered questions. The bad guy in this book in my opinion was too easy to guess but it was funny because even though I guessed who it was I decided that I was wrong because that was too easy. So I guess in the end Shi did manage to confound me lol

Hey Pam

:) Thanks for the review and for picking up the book. Glad you enjoyed it. As to whether or not it's a possible series, that's an 'only time will tell' type of thing.
