What I Thought:

This was an interesting thriller. I kind of wish I had read the first book in the series; it seems I may have had a better understanding of the characters.

I'm certainly not complaing though! I enjoyed reading Alex's story and following her throughout her journey to regain herself.

I'll say that this is one of those stories that you must pay attention to while reading. There are numerous players in this story to keep up with.

Overall it was an enjoyable read and I think it's worth checking out.

About The Book:

(from Amazon)

Last year, Major Alexandra "The Fey" Hargreaves lost everything and nearly lost her life. Now, everyone expects her to move on. Everyone, except Alex. Fragile, lost, and battered, she stumbles and falls. When a small child's life is in danger, only Alex can save him. Setting aside her grief, the horror of the past, and betrayal in the present, she finds the strength and courage to rally her team to rescue him. And Alex learns to stand again. Learning to Stand is another fast-paced, heartwarming novel in the Alex the Fey thriller series.
