This is the first book of Madeline Martin's new series and trilogy. It's about fallen women that becomes an all female spy ring.
You can feel Ariana and Connor’s chemistry right from the get go and it definitely a heart puller! When you hear their back grounds, have the Kleenex ready as you will need them. The villain’s are dark, creepy, sadistic and cruel as expected, but no spoilers. You will have to read the book to find out more.
Ms. Martin really outdid herself in this new first installment as it was truly wonderful. The settings were breathtaking, plus a phenomenal dialogue that will knock your socks off! The fast paced page turning plots have your stomach in knots ! As you truly didn't know what to anticipate next!
I have been reading Ms. Martin since her debut as an author. This book truly blew me away as I have loved all her books. I felt this book was more intense and had more depth and emotion. I seriously could not put this book down it was that fabulous!
