Last month I had the lucky opportunity to be introduced to this author’s work. I read and reviewed her latest book then and loved it! So, I jumped at this chance to read and review her new book and found myself again mesmerized by her words. This book is book one in the Shadow World Book Series. This book is about Kira, a strong-willed, intelligent, stubborn pilot in Alaska. Kira has dreams – very strong, deep, intense dreams that allow her to feel death and tell when someone is danger. Several years earlier her brother went missing and is considered dead. However, no body has ever been recovered and Kira does not believe her brother is actually dead. She knows she would have felt it if he really died and she didn’t feel it. Kira continues to look for him. One night Kira starts having these powerful dreams warning her that a child, Annie Michaels, is about to reach the same fate as her missing brother. Unfortunately, when Kira talks to Annie’s parents about her dreams, they don’t believe her. Kira knows she needs help to save Annie and so she turns to the one person who has been there for her, Hunter. Hunter is just as stubborn as Kira which makes for some fun and witty banter between these two! Hunter is really a good guy and it becomes pretty obvious that he likes Kira as more than just a friend. However, Kira is not so sure she’s willing to risk her one and only friendship for something that probably won’t work out in the end. Nonetheless, when Annie is taken, Kira and Hunter team up and put everything on the line to save and rescue Annie. This book is full of mystery, adventure, action, excitement, suspense, intrigue, fantasy, and even a bit of romance thrown in! As you can see, this book has something to offer almost every genre reader! Although this book’s main genre is listed as fantasy I don’t feel like the book revolved around that – which I was thankful for. Don’t get me wrong, the fantasy theme is definitely in there, but there is just so much else going on too, that the mystery and suspense themes are equally as valid and as important. As usual with Gwenan Haines books, I really like the characters! She writes well-developed, confident, likable, genuine characters. I enjoyed following Kira and Hunter’s story! They had great chemistry and played well off each other! The pace of the book is fast to steady. It keeps you fully engaged and entertained to the very last page! I must warn you though, the ending isn’t tidy! There are definitely many questions left unanswered. Hopefully they will be addressed in book two as this book is part of a book series. But fair warning – you may be left upset or disappointed not knowing certain things and having more questions than answers at the end. That is all I’m going to say as I try hard not to have any spoilers in my book reviews. All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend this book to all readers as this book offers mystery, suspense, action, adventure, excitement, thriller, intrigue, fantasy, romance, and so much more! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**

My review of Wraith by Gwenan Haines. ***** The Wraith is the story of an Alaskan pilot who lost her brother when she was 16 years old. Kira Chiklak is a gifted pilot who has dreams that come true. Sixteen years ago, those dreams told her that her brother was gone but not dead even though everyone thinks he is. Kira says he's not because she has not seen his wraith. She will never stop searching until she finds him. Now, however, Kira is having dreams about another child she is sure is going be taken, but when she speaks to the family of the child, they don't believe her. The only one who does believe is Hunter and he will stop at nothing to help Kira and keep her safe. When the child is kidnapped, Kira and Hunter will stop at nothing to bring the girl home but danger is everywhere and if they are not careful they'll be next. I loved everything about this story. I am giving it five stars, which is something I hardly ever do because the story was just that good. I love the characters. I love how Kira and Hunter react to each other and how Hunter believes her no matter how crazy she sound. The story is a fast paced thrill ride and reminds me of something Nora Roberts might write. I feel like Gwenan has a real talent with story telling and I can't wait to read more by this author. I could not put this book down.

Wraith is my first introduction to Gwenan Haines's work. I just love the cover, by the way. I am so glad I judged the book by the cover and chose to pick it up to read. I thought it was pretty good. I like the different elements of the story that I love in a book: mystery, suspense, action, adventure and romance. I am hoping this a beginning of a new series and there will be book two releasing soon. 4 stars. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
