Series: Sanctuary Series, Book 1
Release Date Fall, 2012
Devastated by the death of his identical twin, Jonathan McKnight flees to the Sawatch Mountain Wilderness. He seeks redemption, but all he finds is trouble... and a beautiful young woman named River that belongs to a primitive and dangerous cult.

Jonathan wants to rescue River and taker her back to his world. River wants to recruit him. Fate has other plans for both of them.


If you enjoy action adventure, a bit of mythology and lore with some romance mixed in River's Recruit just might be the book you are looking for.   It is a character driven read with very well developed characters, both primary and secondary.  And I was able to immerse myself in the paranormal storyline completely.   Ms Abel developed and defined a world of shape shifters in a very believable manner.  The story was fluent and was easily read and understood.  Best of all it was enjoyable!   When I read  book of this nature, I want to be submerged in it and I want to enter a new reality.   Ms Abel was quite in tune with fulfilling my needs!   Thank you!
