But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't — that she must betray him and find that cypher, or her own family will pay the price as surely as his has.

Character Spotlight:

Margot, what a fascinating character she is. She thinks and relates to life in numbers. Even her prayers are number oriented. I like that we were able to get inside her head and get to know her. I can imagine that in real life she might be harder to get to know.  I enjoyed watching her grow and mature especially from the child she was in A Song Unheard. Her relationships with her mother and her brother Lukas are as close as ever and I liked that she took the initiative to become friends with several characters in the book. She grew up into a very gifted and at times snarky young woman who is confident inside her head and can hold her own with the most disgruntled of co-workers.

Drake, the dragon, the spy, the loving brother and most attentive beau: I liked him and his action adventure scenes were fun to watch unfold. He balanced real life and spy life well. His devotion to his family and especially his sister was endearing and when Margot steps into that spotlight, well watch out. His wooing may be unconventional but he knew just how to speak that one’s love language. What a great love story in a time of war that played out.
