Not Dead Yet by Traci Hunter Abramson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As an invisible government operative, Cas has been living in Paris with no complications—until her family pays an unexpected visit to the European city, changing everything. They think Cas is dead, and she has to keep it that way. But when a bomb is detonated nearby and fake news incites riots in the city, Cas recognizes the mark of the Coalition.
Donovan, a fellow guardian, is summoned to join her in Paris to attempt to untangle the intricate web linking Cas’s past with the recent bombings. But as the threat level escalates, Cas must again make an impossible decision: face possible exposure to her family in her race to uncover the truth or risk the loss of innocent lives.
My thoughts: If you haven't read a book by Traci Hunter Abramson, you are missing out.
In Not Dead Yet we get to know two of the guardians better, Cas and Donovan. At first, it seems that their pairing is a mismatch. Fortunately, they become a fantastic duo as they try to uncover the mastermind of a terrorist group and find that they have chemistry.
Cas "died" four years ago when she learned too much about the coalition. She joined the Guardians and became a "ghost". She works with an elite organization that protects others with their ability to hide in a crowd, rescue operatives, and have access to classified information from multiple agencies.
This book starts the suspense and action from the start. Cas's cover has been blown and she and Donovan race to shut down the coalition before they cause more destruction and threaten civilian lives. I loved the plot and the characters. Seriously, this book is so GOOD. It pulls you in and doesn't let go until the last page.
This is book six in the series, but it could be read as a stand-alone. You know there is a backstory with the characters, but that doesn't take away from this story.
I highly recommend this book and all of the Guardian books. There is non-graphic violence and a few stolen kisses.
