Concealed in Shadows is a amazing story one I couldn't put down for a second! I loved every heartstopping second of Sydney and Evelette Harter's life. Gabrielle Arrowsmith is a superb writer who takes you on a wild ride of intrigue and adventure.
Sydney Harter has lived a crappy life full of foster care, abuse and a mental unstable mother who was full of Conspiracy theories and left raising Evvie up to Sydney. These things are nothing new in Miles county where chips in the wrist and electric fences keep everyone in and foster kids get beaten or go missing into an underground world and the government turns a blind eye.Today is Sydney's 18th birthday and the day she will hopefully get full custody of Evvie and save her from a Miles county fate.
Sydney life takes a spiralling turn when she is abducted by two strange men on her daily run and knocked unconscious, when she awakes she doesn't know who she is or where she is. The men who took her swear that they were only trying to free her from the troubles of Miles county. She doesn't know who to believe, and worse yet how to figure out who she is.
With a sister she can't remember still trapped inside and strangers she doesn't know on the outside Sydney isn't sure who to trust but one things for sure, she is going to do her best to get her memory back cause not knowing who you are sucks, big time.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and the immense heart each and every one of them had. My favourite was Crewe, he was so brave, loving, funny and selfless.
I can't wait to read more of this story as it is an incredible read! and if you haven't read it yet you must get yours NOW!
Sydney Harter has long awaited September 12th, 2033—her eighteenth birthday. She can finally apply for guardianship of her sister, who is her only family and entire world. She hopes they will be lawfully reunited, but is prepared to defy authority and risk everything to escape the captivity of Miles County so that they can be together.
Escaping will be difficult and dangerous. Citizens are bound to their county by sophisticated chip implants that deliver shocks to those who dare to cross the electric barrier. Sydney is very clever, but her trickery is limited against the all-seeing eyes of technology. Even if they were to survive the escape, disappearing into the forgotten forests and towns of the past seems an impossible task.
What Sydney doesn't know is that she is the particular interest of two opposing forces. With deceit, fear, and warfare surrounding her—can she trust the party that aims to help with her fight against the other? Can she open her heart to receive and return unexpected love? When her sister’s life becomes jeopardized, Sydney will have to weigh a new love against the only enduring love she has known. The cost could be deadly…
How will she choose?
