About this ebook

Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things:
-Graduation is two weeks away.
-Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.
-She's getting a job with air-conditioning.

She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work.
And she never expected to become a hero.

Red Dawn meets LOST in this New Adult action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.

This book is summarized as Episode 1 because it begins with a story about a girl who gets captured by some type of organization and then ends on chapter five leaving you with a lot of questions. What kind of organization is this? If we rebel, what are they capable of? Prentiss is forced to believe that it is the military invading her town and kidnapping everyone, but then there are speculations about non-human activity. Overall, I will say that Leigh Talbert Moore did an outstanding job with this first book of the series. She allows the story to be simple and not too complicating but at the same time, it slowly builds up complexity. I recommend this book to all of my club members. It is a little more feminine in my opinion so guys, you may not want to read unless you are interested in broadening your horizons and taking the leap. I say this only because the book is from Prentiss’s point of view. You are constantly reading about her thoughts and her actions as opposed to another person’s standpoint. This author does a spectacular job of incorporating a southern girl with big dreams living in a small town in Mississippi. She has CAPTURED my attention and I can’t wait to read the second episode called Learning to Spy.

The storyline is not at all what I expected. Such a fresh and original approach and the way the story is told just flows so naturally. Really well done!

About the author

Leigh Talbert Moore wrote her first graphic novel at the age of nine--about a lady scientist burned by acid. Sadly, the text of "Fury Woman" was lost, and Leigh's novelist aspirations went on hiatus. 

Then, after a decade working in journalism, editing, marketing, and public relations, she began writing books again, and in 2009 completed Dragonfly. Today, Leigh is the author of several popular young adult and new adult novels, all with a strong romantic slant. 

She lives with her husband and two young children in the middle of the country, where she conjures new worlds, characters, and situations while playing chauffeur, chaperone, group activity leader, and referee. And she's still trying to remember the plot of Fury Woman...
