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.
