If you could have a superpower what would you pick? Well, Evangeline Lawson doesn’t have to imagine a superpower, she has one, and it’s brought her nothing but trouble. Evangeline is the last direct descendant of St. Anthony of Padua, finder of lost articles. This ability makes her the most wanted person on the planet. Always on the run she has avoided developing relationships because any person she has cared for has been used against her. Evangeline is on the run again and this time she is out of options. She has to resort to using a photo her grandmother gave her for an emergency. Find this object and you will find a place of safety. Safety comes in the form of a not very nice man named Adrien.
The tension in this story really amps up when Evangeline and Adrien meet. Don’t get me wrong, the book gets off to a quick start but I was eager for Evangeline to find safety and hopefully once she can relax, find herself. She learned how to make friends and found a little bit of a sense of humor. Adrien was not the one to teach her that humor, he was a bit testy but he did teach her to stop being a victim which helped her gain confidence to fight evil.
Adrien, Adrien, Adrien. I had mixed feelings about him. I loved him more at the beginning of the book than I did at the end, which is a little backwards. He was a tough guy! Rude, unemotional and unfriendly. As he got more emotional and well, not kind, exactly, but less rude, I liked him less. What does that say about me? Not sure. However, I did like what he and Evangeline’s relationship evolved into and the direction the story took.
This seems to be the first book in a series and I’m looking forward to seeing the evolution of their relationship as well as the fight of good against evil. Surely, good will win, right?
I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review, and it was honest.
