Ruth’s zealot father seems determined to demonize the young people in town that have developed powers, stirring the town into a frenzy likely to lead to a witch hunt, which makes it all the more worrying that she’s having more and more problems hiding her own powers. After a fondly remembered encounter at the general store with the young doctor, and another at a charity drive, Ruth decides to turn to Dr. Henry Porter when things become too much for her to handle on her own. Both Ruth and Henry have less than ideal family situations, and I liked the way they helped each other navigate the difficulties—standing firm as a team and supporting each other through the storm. Ruth’s isolation and naiveté made her a very interesting character and Henry’s calm, gentle presence was perfect paired with her. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for the Independents in the next book! Be sure to check out the Ignited Bonus Story (cute fairy-tale short) available as a free download on the Author’s website, and it was a nice setup for Briar’s story in Shifted—hope to see it out soon!
