About Not Dead Yet
Cassidy Edgemont has been dead for four years. At least, that is what the world has been led to believe. After becoming unwittingly entangled in a group called the Coalition, known for using fake news to generate political unrest in the United States, Cas was offered a devastating choice: stage her own death and join her rescuers, the guardians, or risk the wrath of the organization she betrayed. She chose death.
As an invisible government operative, Cas has been living in Paris with no complications—until her family pays an unexpected visit to the European city, changing everything. They think Cas is dead, and she has to keep it that way. But when a bomb is detonated nearby and fake news incites riots in the city, Cas recognizes the mark of the Coalition.
Donovan, a fellow guardian, is summoned to join her in Paris to attempt to untangle the intricate web linking Cas’s past with the recent bombings. But as the threat level escalates, Cas must again make an impossible decision: face possible exposure to her family in her race to uncover the truth or risk the loss of innocent lives.
Traci Hunter Abramson is one of my very favorite authors. Her books suck me in. They always have great characters, settings and a killer plot that keeps you interested from the very beginning.
I loved getting to read about Cas in this one. She’s been in other of the Guardian books. So it was fun to get to know her story a little bit. I loved the way she had immersed herself in Paris, almost to the point of becoming Parisian. So when she had to go somewhere else, she brought that with her. Another thing I really loved about her was that she loved to bake. It was fun to imagine the things she was baking for her and Donovan. Speaking of Donovan, Cas wasn’t quite sure about being the one needing rescued.
I really enjoyed seeing two Guardians in this one. It was fun to see the perspective they both had. I loved the way Donovan jumped in to help Cas. And the way the two of them just worked.
You really need to read this series! If you haven’t already. I love each and every one of the books.
I was sent a copy of Not Dead Yet as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
