Retrieve by Sarah Addison-Fox

What if the job you took to stay alive might be what kills you?
Kade knows what it is to suffer. He knows what it’s like to lose everything and everyone around him.
His job in a Stormer Unit guarantees not just his survival in the decimated country of Azetaria, but his sister Meg’s. Even if it means facing the Numachi warriors baying for his blood, he’ll do what it takes to keep her safe.
Hadley is alone and surviving the only way she knows how. By hiding where predators won’t find her and scavenging enough just to keep her alive.
When desperation drives Hadley to search for her missing brother, she mistakenly accepts the offer of recruitment into the Stormer’s camp, only to be partnered with Kade and sent as a scout into Numachi territory.
The intimidating young Stormer may just know where her brother has gone. But can they stay alive long enough to find him?

My Thoughts:
I really liked the plotline of this compelling story and I read it in only a few hours (and one sitting)! The characters felt lifelike because of the many disagreements and the friendship that formed during of the adventure.
The descriptions of the landscapes that Kade and Hadley were traveling through painted a pretty picture in my mind while reading. I was almost convinced that I was on the adventure with them.
I can not wait to read the rest of the series. This book left off as a cliffhanger and I MUST know what happens next. (Books two and three release soon!)
I have to say that there were a few instances where some minor language was used so that is the only reason it did not get a higher rating for content. I will definitely be looking into more of the books by Sarah Addison-Fox though. :)

Kade moved so he was crouching alongside her, his eyes still watching the entrance to the alley. “I’ll give you a minute to rest, then we need to move, we’ll only get one chance at this.”
White hot fear flowed through her as she gaped at him. “We’re still going to get the princess?”
Kade angled his head so she could see the hint of blood dripping from his nose. “We have a job to do. We have to adapt. No matter what happens, Stormers get the job done.”
