#Kickasswomen giveaway (closed)

Welcome to an awesome giveaway provided to us by Simon and Schuster Canada

I have read Dark Territory and The Passenger and I will be reviewing both of them for you today!


This book takes us on a wild ride through the underground railroad for women that are in abusive relationships. Our main character is Signey Sheppard, she is one of the volunteers for the organization. In this particular volume of the series we are following her with a woman that has needed to run away from her husband with her baby in tow. The husband is not abusive to her or the child, however, there are secrets that he is keeping that the wife has found out, and has put her and the baby in danger.

The husband is an up and coming Doctor with lots of resources on his side, so finding a spot to hold the wife and baby proves to be difficult. The organization has plenty of resources to choose from, so they decide to take the wife and baby through the US instead of bringing them over the border in to Canada. 

The pace of this book was awesome, I truly felt like I was on the ride with them. It was also nice to read about some places in Ontario Canada that I knew about. There is a side story in this book as well about someone called "the tracker". We do not learn till a little while in to the book why he is keeping track of Signey, why he would have any interest in her at all. He is very good at what he does, and can even find her when she is using a fake ID. 

Overall this book was close to being perfect for me, I give it a 4/5! I highly recommend it for anyone looking for something fast paced and thrilling.


This book takes a whole new look at the meaning of "shedding new skin" if you will. One of the opening lines of the book is In case you were wondering, I didn’t do it. I didn’t have anything to do with Frank’s death. I don’t have an alibi, so you’ll have to take my word for it...

This is just the beginning of what you will have to take Tanya's word for throughout this novel. She is fantastic at hiding and taking on other identities. There are some interesting characters that she meets along the way, and lots of questions that are not answered till the very end of the novel.

Tanya has secrets from her past, even prior to Frank's death, and it was exciting to try and figure out what that secret is throughout the novel, and I was nowhere close to figuring it out, I can tell you that. 

Tanya puts on many different faces through this novel, some of them good, some of them not so good. I cannot imagine what she was thinking sometimes, and I think that is part of the point of this book, she is an unreliable character. 

Overall I really enjoyed this novel, and would rate it a 4/5 as well, if you are a fan of thrillers, this book is absolutely for you!

Now on to the giveaway, this is Canada only please, All you have to do is thank Simon & Schuster in the comments, and give a suggestion of a book that you have read that has a kick ass woman in it!
