Lucy doesn’t remember anything, even whether she likes milkshakes. All she remembers is that Olivia told her to run. When she encounters Zoe, a waitress at a small-town diner who has her own hidden past, Lucy instinctively trusts her. Powerful people are after Lucy, though, and as the teens flee from the unknown together, it seems Lucy may not be an innocent child. Her skills are more fitting for a hardened military veteran than a young woman and, as she begins to remember her origins, it becomes clear that she may be more weapon than human. As secrets in every character’s past are slowly revealed, readers won’t know who to trust until the last page.
VERDICT Dekker (“Seer” series) comes into her own with this thought-provoking companion to the Girl Behind the Red Rope, coauthored with her father Ted Dekker, exploring themes of good, evil, and the power of choice. Fans of thrillers by James Rollins, Ronie Kendig, or the “X-Men” comics series will relish this fast-paced story.
