Some secrets are best kept hidden…
Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to international city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages.
And most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing, presumed dead.
She’s the only one who believes Keira is still alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia sets out to follow the trail—and lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. Now she isn’t sure who she can trust. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy with a sexy accent who’s as secretive as she is. He may have followed her to Rome to help, but something about him seems too good to be true.
Nothing is as it appears, and when everything she’s ever known is revealed to be a lie, Anastasia has to believe in one impossibility.
She will find her sister.

This book was a fast-paced, action-packed, adrenalin ride that dragged me right into the dark heart of political espionage.
I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning, and stayed, glued with suspense, each step of the way as Anastasia journeyed to find her sister, and ultimately uncover the truth that would change her life forever.
I can only imagine the fear that tore through Ana at the start of this book and it was heart-breaking to watch her as she went through the motions. Having lost so much in life, she was a true fighter and she really stepped up to the plate; even in the face of death.
This book was thrilling. It held me captive until the very last page, and I cannot wait to dive into the sequel. With so many threats hanging over their heads, and having found their way into my heart, I am intrigued to see how Ana and her friends will make it through yet another treacherous adventure filled with danger.
