Desert Angel by Charlie Price
Synopsis: ‘Fourteen-year-old Angel wakes up one morning at her desert trailer home to discover her mother has been murdered by a lowlife named Scotty, who has vanished. Angel has no water, no weapon, but she knows that Scotty, an expert tracker and hunter, will surface soon in order to eliminate her as a witness. She has to run, to disappear, if she is to survive and tell the world what happened. Her flight takes her through a harsh landscape to places she never expected to be, forcing her to trust others for the first time and strengthening her in ways she doesn’t even anticipate . . . until it’s time to take a stand.’
What a powerful beginning this story has. Right from the start the reader is hooked and thrown into the deep end. I found myself holding my breath so as not to be heard and other times feeling breathless from running. Whatever Angel was feeling or fearing, I was right there alongside her, hoping not to be heard, discovered, hoping to make it to safety. Other times I wanted to scream at her to ask for help, from anybody, but true to form, Angel didn’t listen to me.
This is a suspenseful read that has a powerful message. This story will keep the reader on the edge of their seats.
