Happy 4th of July and happy book release day I am happy to announce that Locket Full of
Secret Is Now Live On is now live on This book is 3 years in the making inspired by my love of Eur Locket Full of Secrets from Dana Burkey is a well constructed suspense adventure thriller that sees three people crossing the planet to solve a riddle from the past the reasons behind the meltdown at the Chernobyl Nuclear plant in the Ukraine Claire Olena and Steven embark on a mission that will see them shot at wounded and in constant peril both in the US and later in the Ukraine as they seek to recover evidence of what really happened at Chernobyl The story is incredibly fast paced and the action non stop I enjoyed the read but I did find myself having to suspend my belief from time to time I struggled with the idea that Claire a first year College student would so easily oin up with Olena on this frantic dash across the continents Clair was painted early on as a fairly uiet and naive young lady I found it difficult to contrast this with the willing participant in Olena s That She So that so became She seemed unwilling to even uestion Olena s decisions to head for the Ukraine It did seem ust a little far fetched in that respect That having been said it was a fun read and one that I am sure a young adult audience will relish It would probably be educational to today s youth as well who probably have little idea what Chernobyl was A good satisfying four stars read from Burkey I was provided this book in exchange for an honest reviewLet me start out by saying that I don t particularly care for books related to history I usually prefer my books to be 100% fictitious This book is lightly based off the events of Chernobyl which you don t realize until you get about half way through the book This didn t bother me though I really enjoyed Dana s interpretation of the events of Chernobyl You can tell she really did her research for this book which added to why I enjoyed it It was remarkable Moving onto characters I was SO AFRAID that Steven was going to end up being a bad guy The whole way through the book I was like if he ends up being a bad guy I m going to scream I thought he might be Russian KGB but I was totally wrong Steven was by far the most intricate and thought out character He was also the only one with a really good character description That was one of the only things about this book I found lacking I didn t really know how to picture Claire or Olena that was pretty much left open to reader s interpretation Claire had a great attitude If I found out my best friend was involved in something like Olena was I would have laughed and told her good luck on her own Claire was relatable and truly a great protagonist Olena was a character. After over 4 years Olena comes rocketing back into Claire's life changing everything for the worse Picking up the shattered pieces Claire is not sure who to believe Is Olena who she says she is or is she a killer to stay away from Leaning on.

I had a little bit of an issue fully enjoying I don t feel like her character was developed far enough Honestly we don t get much of her dialog ust a lot of facial expressions LOL The only other issue I had with the book
was c romance suspense twists murder and ac Romance suspense twists murder and a lot of European history mixed all together to make this book a great YA story I am reviewing the audiobook I really enjoyed this narrator and found that she made the story flow nicely without sounding like she was reading the book The author keeps the story moving at a steady pace with twists and turns off events that I wasn t expectingPoor Claire she is has had a rough time through this story meeting a great best friend in Olena only to have Olena leave without giving her any reasons Years later Olena is back with a ton of trouble trailing her Pulling Claire into a whirlwind of trouble on the run from murder and mystery men after them they end up in Russia Claire has a little romance thrown into this story but don t get to happy because the author throws in some twists but I did enjoy how it ended The characters are all in college and I found Claire to be very naive who would ust up and take off to Russia with a crazy friend who is being followed by dangerous men The history part of this story was really interesting as I didn t know anything about this event that happen in Russia Overall I give this book a 35 stars out of 5 I found the narrator did a great ob on the audiobook and I was engaged in the whole story I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review I didn t love any of the characters in thisThis started out okay although after a bit I did start losing interest slightly There wasn t really anything wrong with it though I ust couldn t get into the action much so it felt a bit slow for me Overall An okay read I received an e book version of this book in exchange for an honest review by the author I give this book 4 out of 5 stars It has mystery romance and reliability to some extent I relate to Claire in the beginning I also don t have any friends and am emotional too I liked Claire Olena was a little too stiff for me Never showing emotions has got to be hard to do but she to me ust didn t seem genuine in caring about Claire to me I felt like she Moonrise just wanted to use her I saw a few errors in the book I also felt it was a little rushed and I felt the chapters were too short that sust my opinion But I really liked this
