Hello Fellow Readers,

So this is the first book I've read in the Kana Cold series, which I really wanted to like, but now I realize that instead of starting with this book I probably should have started with the first book then came back and read this one. You must be wondering why, well since this is a such a short books (148 pages) you don't really get enough information to really get to know the characters.

As far as Kana goes, Hunter makes it obvious from the beginning that Kana had gone through some trauma but unfortunately we don't get too much information about this. Due to this, Kana seems cold and uninteresting. As far as the other characters went, I really liked AJ he seemed to be the only one who really seemed likable and fleshed out despite Kana being the main character.

There was one instance that made me upset and it was the confrontation between the child's mother and Kana, which never have a resolution or even a conversation, which that combined with the ending made the mother look ungrateful. The case was intriguing and interesting, so much so that I really wished it was longer and we got to see more of the investigation, given that it was good the resolution seemed rushed and anti-climatic.

Overall, it really needed more, but it did get me interested in the series to see how a longer story would be written.
