"My life is in the Wolf's hands."
He is the Wolf. I am his Red. The game has begun and he wants me dead.
But who is the Wolf?
And why has he chosen me?
He whistles a tune that's haunting. He glares at me through eyes that are vacant. I feel his heart beating, yet I know he has no soul. He moves like the wind...I can't hear his footsteps. I want this to end. He's playing with my mind. He branded me with ink. He wants to destroy me.
"I, Reid, take thee, Morgan, to be my wife. To have and to hold, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, till death do us part..."
I have a reason to keep running.
There's no time to blink.
Don't look back. Don't make a sound.
I know he's behind me

Two Footsteps was an excellent psychological thriller / suspense / mystery novella! I was completely captivated (pun intended) from start to finish.

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Story:

A little dark, a lot tense, Two Footsteps definitely kept me at the edge of my seat. Who is the wolf? Why has he kidnapped Morgan? There are many clues around her when she wakes up, but none of them make sense to her. There is quite a bit of confusion, and suddenly, she wakes up outside. She’s hunted. And she has no idea how she’ll be able to get out of the wilderness alive.

Characters:

Morgan is married to Reid, they have two children. As she wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings, she knows her life is in danger, and the way the Wolf is playing a cat-and-mouse game with her just makes things more eerie.
Reid was at first a suspect in Morgan’s disappearance. He has no idea where she is – and he’d do anything to get her back.
Morgan’s best friend is present, and there’s some secrets there. Police officers and Morgan’s parents are part of Two Footsteps as well.

Writing style :

First person point of view, present tense. Two Footsteps is told in alternate perspectives, from Reid and Morgan’s point of view.

Feels :

I felt really tense, and the danger was breathing down my neck!

Fave Quotes - (un)Conventional Bookviews

This was the first gift she’d picked out for me on her own – Memories begin to flow like a current being swept by strong winds. It’ a visual display of magical moments our family have enjoyed together – the smiles, the laughter, the undying love.

    • I didn’t read the first book before this one… but I have read the first book now, so I did get some more background information. About Morgan and Reid… and a tiny bit about The Wolf, too. I think I might have given this a full five stars if I had read the books in order ๐Ÿ˜‰
      They are both currently $0.99 for kindle ๐Ÿ˜‰ And there are three more books coming in the serial.

    I’m always hooked on a psychological thriller, because I like an edgy story to keep me on my toes. That cover is so amazing! Hope you’ve been doing well. Hugs….RO
