Review: Elect (Eagle Elite #2) by Rachel Van Dyken


Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family's enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him. 

Trace Rooks has fallen irrevocably in love with the son of her family's sworn rival, and she knows in her bones nothing can tear them apart. Until Nix suddenly pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend... But Trace isn't ready to give up on a future with Nix--and if he won't fight for them, she will. 

In the end, a sacrifice must be made. A life for a life. For what better way to cover a multitude of sins than with the blood of a sinner . . .

 My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

This book left me with so many emotions that I hardly know where to begin. I guess I should start off by saying that Elect picks up pretty much exactly where the first books ends, so if you don't remember (or haven't read) the first one, I highly suggest you do that first. 

Now the novel itself is sure to invoke many emotions in the reader. Laughter, Surprise, Shock, Betrayal, Sadness. Rachel brings it all and leaves no holds barred in her telling of this world. Loyalties are tested and broken, relationships are forever altered... you may think you know how it ends, but believe me, you'll never see this one coming. 

All of our familiar characters are in place, but Elect also introduces us to a few new characters (which unfortunately I can't go into without giving too much away). Just know that each newcomer plays a crucial role in the book, and quickly you either like them.. or you hate them. Sometimes both at the same time.

At first I thought the story moved a little slower than some of her other novels, but once the action starts and the story-line really gets going, it is a suspenseful and action packed ride that will leave you wanting more.
