This is the third in the Storm Front trilogies. This is a wonderful series that follows well from book to book. In the third book Amalie Pope comes home after she is shot at the school she teaches at, only to be taken hostage in her own home by 4 escaped convicts. One of the men, Nick Aroyo has a secret that he doesn't want anyone to know. I always love how Sharon Sala writes her characters, she has a way of making them feel very real. She also has a way of making each of her books touching even when someone is trying to kill some one or another. It's best if you read all three of the books in order because there is a continually story that goes from one to the other. Happy reading!
