Synopsis: She never thought her ability to communicate with wild animals was anything more than a unique gift. But this gift is tied to a long history of secrets that threaten to shatter her one chance at true love…

Laken Sumner isn’t your average teenager. Ever since she realized that wild animals could hear her thoughts, she’s spent more time in the woods with them than with other children. Even her wolf is a better friend to her than most people. She trusts him—so much so that she follows him out into the wilderness in the middle of the night to find a lost little boy. But the boy’s disappearance is only the beginning.

The one bright spot in her life is Noah Lawson, the handsome new town deputy. Charming and mature, he almost seems too good to be true. Then she meets Xander Payne, the new boy at school, who seems to know something about her. But how could that be possible?

As strange things begin to happen in her sleepy New England town, Laken wonders if Xander has something to do with it. Or is it just a coincidence that danger targets her soon after he arrives?

My Thoughts:  I enjoyed the way the story line built up but felt a little let down when nothing happens. Usually by the end of a book some big secret or discovery happens leaving the reader excited about the next book and where the story is headed. Don't get me wrong I really do want to know what happens next and I feel like it's going to get really intriguing. But right now I feel like it was too drawn out without much happening.

I really enjoyed reading about each character and can't wait to find out more about Xander and his story with his father. I thought the character development was the best part of the book, I love the main character Laken and her friends, you really get a feeling like you really know each character. I feel like the next book will unveil a lot of unanswered questions from the first book. So although I was a little underwhelmed by this book I am still excited to see what happens next!
