Behind the Stars (Books 1& 2) by Leigh Talbert Moore

Red Dawn meets LOST in this New Adult action-adventure romance. 

Episode 1 of a new serial from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.

Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things:

-Graduation is two weeks away.
-Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.
-She’s getting a job with air-conditioning.
She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work.
And she never expected to become a hero.

MY REVIEW: (4/5 stars)

The story of a town where all the young adults are kidnapped and no one knows why and where they are. This town is isolated anyway and the kids grew up in farmland and most do not have big dreams. The main character is Prentiss with Jackson- they are in love. Prentiss gets kidnapped, along with others and her goal is to survive and find Jackson, her hero. She does find her brother- a bible thumper who is turning into a zombie by the drugs the captors have given them. They eat eggs and steak for breakfast and are expected to run a farm, churn butter, etc. by groups. No one knows who the captors are and why they are there or how long they will be held. Are they aliens?? We need to read and find out in the sections to continue…this was mainly to set up the story and now the real story begins. I received this from the author via I am a reader in exchange for my honest opinion.
Episode 2 of a new serial from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.

Alone in her mission, Prentiss has to figure out a new approach if she plans to escape the prison camp alive. She does not expect to find an ally among her captors.

Strategies change and secrets are revealed as Prentiss learns to spy to survive.

MY REVIEW:  (4/5 stars)

This section follows immediately after the first part of the book as Prentiss is given more responsibility with the cows. She gets to be with Gallatin, the leader’s brother- who seems just like her but in his early 20’s. He states he was in school. She is having trouble believing that they are ‘aliens’ like what the other captives are saying but she is also upset and confused as she is told about mass graves and seen one of her friends killed. She just wants to escape and find Jackson and go on with her life. She relives her memories from the past with cheer-leading and her dreams of becoming a vet, then just being a housewife – now the dream is to just escape. Will she escape- it depends upon her abilities to spy and make friends with the enemy and keep her wits. I for one will keep reading as the author has got me intrigued. I received this from the author via I am a reader in exchange for my honest opinion.
