Review: Untraceable by S.R. Johannes

Untraceable by S.R. Johannes

(I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review)

16-year-old Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival.

When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him.

One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father.

Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.
Grace is my new favorite YA heroine!! She is outdoorsy, sarcastic at times, determined, inquisitive, confident and a bit crazy. She refuses to believe her father is dead as everyone says and continues to search for him. She drives a motorcycle called Lucifer 'Luci' and is pretty awesome at wilderness survival. I liked how she was a three dimensional character who is believable. She isn't always perfect and makes her own share of mistakes that makes the readers empathize with her.

I abso-bloody-lutely Loved Mo. He is sweet and I liked how there is more to him than meets the eye. I like it when people other than the protagonist also have a story of their own. It makes things more interesting.

I liked Wyn for the most part. He is a loyal friend and goes out of his way to help Grace even though he believes her to be crazy.

I absolutely loved the plot. It has so many twists and turns that I definitely did not see coming. The main plot of Grace looking for her father who has disappeared is emotional and I found myself close to tears at certain points. The story is unpredictable and the the author shocked me with some of the secrets. And also the ending a bit of a cliffhanger. I can't wait to read Uncontrollable to know more!

The writing is perfect. I loved the dialogues and the descriptions. This book has 100% amazing imagery that keeps readers captivated. Writing plays an important role in building up the suspense and creating the twists in a story like Untraceable and the author does a perfect job!
