A great side story for anyone following this series.
Tessa is a fighter, but she believes she is a free fighter. She works for an organization she thinks helps people train after their awakenings. Eventually, she hopes they'll allow her to stop fighting and send her on assignment to use her gift to better the world.
When finally gets her wish, she's sent with the mysterious Dean, to the jungles of African. Instead of using her powers for good, she quickly learns her new employers only want to exploit her and she isn't as free as she thought she was. But there's a great plan at work here... one no one bothered to tell her about.
What I loved:
The book is short yet managed to pack so much emotion into Tessa's journey from faithful follower to rebel. She learns who to trust gradually and the relationship between her and Dean never once feels rushed. She’s an extremely authentic character.
A great story for both those already in love with the Emerge series and those getting their first taste of Melissa Craven’s exciting world.
