From the Publisher:

In a clash of light and darkness, can courage prevail?

Rescuing a toddler from the jaws of a mountain lion, Trevor MacDaniel, a high-country outfitter, sets in motion events he can’t foresee. His act of bravery entwines his life with gifted sculptor Natalie Reeve—and attracts a grim admirer.
Trevor’s need to guard and protect is born of tragedy, prompting his decision to become a search and rescue volunteer. Natalie’s gift of sculpting comes from an unusual disability that seeks release through her creative hands. In each other they see strength and courage as they face an incomprehensible foe.
When a troubled soul views Trevor as archangel and adversary, Redford’s peaceful mountain community is threatened. Together with Police Chief Jonah Westfall, Trevor presses his limits to combat the menace who targets the most helpless and innocent.

Another book read on my Kindle. The formatting was a little strange, but I managed to figure it out anyway.

I liked this book, but there were several things that I did not like, dragging my overall rating down to a three out of five. I liked the idea and individual character traits of each of the characters, but for a book this length, there were too many characters that the author tried to give depth to. The author has an interesting, almost poetic, writing style, but the sections written from the adversary’s point of view were extremely confusing and did not make any sense at all. That could have been the goal, but it was really hard to tell. The ending, ah the ending! If a book doesn’t have a good ending, it ruins the rest of the book for me. This book had a decent ending, but it was rushed and and left a lot of details hanging instead of tying them up nice and pretty. There was only one chapter after the climax, and I felt like there could have been a lot more said.

Would I read it again? Nah. Would I recommend it? Only if you really like to read, and like to read fast. Otherwise, don’t bother. There are so many better books to choose from.
