My Review

Melissa has hit rock bottom when she suddenly loses both her parents . She loves her job but just can’t keep going and everything seems to be falling apart.

Here enters Dominic, the enigmatic leader of The Brotherhood, who Melissa when seeking shelter, support and bit of peace from all her troubles she She leans on Dominic more and more as he reaches out to help her after her loss and is persuaded to join the sect.

There she is thrown into a whole new life and not all is for the better.

To say more would give away too much of the fantastic story, But I wanted on more than one occasion to shout to Melissa RUN! RUN GIRL!

This is a fact paced read fast read and I very much enjoyed it. This was a two sitting read for me. I was hooked from the start. I just could not put it down. I’m so looking forward to reading even more from this author. I have already been spoiled by been lucky enough to be involved in this double tour so I am already well in to book 2 The Refuge, which i will be reviewing next month!

Author Bio

Jo Fenton grew up in Hertfordshire. She devoured books from an early age, particularly enjoying adventure books, school stories and fantasy.

She wanted to be a scientist from aged six after being given a wonderful book titled “Science Can Be Fun”.

At eleven, she discovered Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and now has an eclectic and much loved book collection cluttering her home office.

Jo combines an exciting career in Clinical Research with an equally exciting but very different career as a writer of psychological thrillers.
