From the opening chapter until I turned to the last page “Deep Trace” had me hooked. Filled with adventure, suspense, continuous twists and turns, and an unfolding love story… I could not put this book down. Tessa Van Wade drew me in one word at a time and painted a crisp picture that made me feel I was in the story. While I loved Willow in “Out of the Shadows”, discovering Remy made me long for my own undiscovered realities. You hold in your hands a masterpiece and I cannot wait for the final book in this series.

    One of the things I liked best about this book is that despite the fantasy genre, it’s written in such a way that it feels totally believable. There are parts that I wouldn’t think I’d understand but did completely. I was transported into Remy’s world and felt all the emotions from every character. I’ll read this again for sure!
