Overview

Jenna and Andi Tikaani-Gray are hoping for a fresh start. Though twelve year-old Andi has long struggled with a rare medical disorder, she and her mother have finally received good news from out-of-town specialists. It's news they desperately needed, especially after the recent death of Jenna's husband (Andi's dad) in a car accident.

But as they are flying home to Alaska, ready to begin again, the unthinkable happens. The pilot sabotages their small plane and crashes into Sultana, one of the most remote and dangerous mountains in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Even worse, a winter storm is headed their way along with someone who doesn't want to save them, but to kill them.

Only one man can keep them alive: Cole Maddox, the mysterious last-minute passenger who joined them on their flight. But trust doesn't come easy to Jenna or AndiÑand they both sense Cole is hiding something.

A relentless tale of survival and suspense unfolds, involving military technology designed by Jenna's late husband that some would do anything to possess.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The two authors are a mother and her teenage daughter, and they borrow from reality—Kayla, the teenager, has a rare nerve disorder that prevents her from regulating body temperature or sensing pain—in presenting the action-filled tale of a mother and daughter, Jenna and Andie Tikaani-Gray (with the same disorder), whose plane is sabotaged and crashes into Sultana, the formidable neighbor of Alaska's Mt. Denali. A seriously injured Jenna and Andie must decide whether to trust the other crash survivor, Cole Maddox, in a plan to survive, and Maddox doesn't seem especially trustworthy. The story has its fascinating bits— Andie's unusual disorder, survival in the Alaskan wilderness, the native Alaskan background of the two women—as well as not very original plot elements: Maddox's weepy backstory, cartoonish villains, the sage hospital chaplain. The evangelical Christian formula of accepting-Jesus-as-your-savior helps drive the plot, which some will like and others won't. This has page-turning potential, but is too predictable and emotionally manipulative to earn a large audience. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Mother and daughter Jenna and Andi Tikaani-Gray have been struggling; Jenna's husband recently died, and 12-year-old Andi suffers from a rare medical condition. When they receive some hopeful news about Jenna's disorder, they fly home to Alaska to begin a new life. But disaster comes when their pilot purposefully crashes their plane in the wilderness. Now Jenna and Andi must place their trust in another passenger if they hope to survive. VERDICT Full of suspense, danger, and romantic tension, this series debut by a mother/daughter writing team is sure to be a hit with fans of Linda Howard.
