This was a really good story with plenty of thrills. It held plenty of surprises and more than one direction that danger was coming from. Plenty of action almost all the time.
The biggest surprise came with a revelation about a danger that NO ONE saw coming. Well done.
The main characters were good and so was the supporting cast of foster brothers and foster dad. I liked that there was a cast list in the beginning of the book.
One thing I would mention was that it felt like two phrases were a bit overused. "Mercy" and "Oh Mercy." even when used as a thought phrase was a bit of a distraction after a while.
I liked how the story ended but I also would have liked to see Owen get Mega punishment. What happened was good but it also went like it left me wanting more in that area.
