Book One of the Shattered Realms Series
When monsters break through the veil separating their worlds, Mackenzie Scott has nothing left to lose. Her brother is marked, her future has vanished, and all that remains is a desperate need for revenge. After discovering the breach the monsters used as a gateway, Mackenzie devises a plan to stop them, whatever the cost. It isn’t exactly luck when she finds an injured stranger in the street, but he just might be the key she needs to succeed. What Mackenzie doesn’t know, is that this stranger isn’t the helpless boy he appears to be. He’s one of them. And he’s got plans of his own.
This is my first book by Melissa Wright. The cover is amazing and fit the story perfectly. I gobbled this up in one sitting and even ordered pizza so I didn’t have to stop and cook. THAT is saying a lot! So not only did I enjoy the book but the kids reaped the benefits too.
It starts with monsters entering our world through the veil when it breaks. Now I usually don’t read much of the new adult age because authors usually make characters so wishy washy and whiny. Mackenzie was neither of these. She was strong and self sacrificing and even tried to help a stranger from the monsters. That is where the ever mysterious Hunter came in.I can’t tell you much about him without spoiling anything but I will tell you that I had sympathy for everyone in the story.
