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 her new boyfriend Steven for support, Claire is faced with the choice on who to trust: a friend she barley knows, or a history lesson she barely remembers. Together, the three will begin a journey that will take Claire from the safety of her home to the last place she thought she would ever be: The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. With the wreckage of rector four looming behind her, Claire will have to see Olena's plan through until the end if she wants any chance of making it out alive.

Romance, suspense, twists, murder, and a whole 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 expecting.
Poor 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 just 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 3.5 stars out of 5. I found the narrator did a great job on the audiobook and I was engaged in the whole story.
