Tamara Hart Heiner takes 4 teenage girls with their ordinary lives, and turns it all upside down for them. Jaci, Callie, Sara and Amanda get trapped into a wild ride that takes them from an everyday trip to the mall to a fight for their lives through the Canadian wilderness. You have no idea how this will play out. It's unpredictable. Tamara Hart Heiner knows how to plot and to write action, how to keep you turning pages when you should be turning out the light and going to sleep.
The story is told from Jaci's viewpoint, and she works well as a main character, especially when something turns up about her own family that makes you wonder who is her dad and what connection does he have with The Hand? The Hand is the villain you love to hate. He doesn't show up a lot but his power is far-reaching, and the scenes with him are chilling. Then there's the two surprise characters thrown in half way through to spice up the mix.
A major character is the detective following the case. I really enjoyed getting his viewpoint. I liked how Heiner developed him, making Perilous more appealing to those of us who tend to grab a detective mystery before a YA novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed Perilous, even when my heart was racing at each new twist. It is only $4.99 on Kindle, here's the link to purchase the ebook: http://www.amazon.com/dp/
