    1. Originally posted at wanderlustbooksandteaDark Territory is the second book in the Signy Shepherd series by Susan Philpott The first book, Blown Red, was released last year and it was fantastic This book was even better, in my opinion.Signy works for the Line, which is an underground railway of sorts that helps women escape terrible situations, which is as empowering as it sounds Signy helps transport the women to their new lives, and of course, runs into trouble along the way.In this book, Sign [...]


    2. I was sent an ARC copy of this book from Simon Schuster Canada.I really enjoyed this book I hadn t read the first book in the series, so I was a little lost in the beginning, as there were a lot of flashbacks to the first story, but once I got into the plot of this book I just became immersed in this amazing thriller Fast paced action throughout Twist and turns every other page Really keeps you guessing You think you ve figured things out when you re thrown for a loop again Great writing, great [...]

Signey Shepherd is given her newest assignment, to rescue Lizzy Stone and her baby boy from an abusive household While safeguarding the two, she becomes cut off from her Line support It s just about that time that she discovers that the person she s protecting may be of a threat than those of the rescued woman s husband Philpott s story was terrifying in several places, but she wasn t overly descriptive with the gory details A solid, well developed story, but it didn t quite reach me the way I [...]


    5. If any of my friends would like to read a new Canadian author, Susan Philpott is good She is entertaining and strong in her character development The fact that both this novel and its prequel, also read and reviewed by me, discuss a Canadian Line is curious for us Canadians Yet this line is not without precedent as there has been at least two young people s help lines across the country that I was aware of in the sixties and seventies especially during the Hippie Era when many a youngster became [...]


    6. In Dark Territory, Signy Shepherd is back for another adventure, only this time she is transporting a mother with a young child to Lake Placid in the United States Things aren t what they seem Danger is surrounding Signy at every turn People are telling lies and they are hiding secrets but whom should she trust The answer is definitely not clear I must admit, this second book reads better than the first book It gets deeper into the minds of deceitful people People who want to succeed at any cost [...]


    7. Originally posted on citygirlscapes.A couple of years ago, I was introduced to Susan Philpott s Signy Shepard in the thrilling Blown Red I remember not expecting too much when I was sent the book, but I really enjoyed it and was an instant fan of Signy When the follow up novel Dark Territory was released, it somehow squeaked past my radar, but as soon as I realized I missed the train, I did what I could to catch up.In my opinion, Dark Territory was even better than it s predecessor What I missed [...]


    8. This is the second Signy Shepherd book, after Blown Red , which I have read Again, there is difficult subject matter, given that the books are about the Underground Railroad to help abused women and their children escape dangerous situations and recreate themselves somewhere else in North America The books also detail the dangers to those volunteers who are conductors on the railroad This one has its improbable elements, or at least we can only hope that they are improbable, since the alternativ [...]

    10. 4.5 stars Won as part of dgiveaways Easy reading mystery thriller Interesting subject matter underground railroad for victims of domestic violence I could have done with about 17 less your fat friend s from the villain though He could have changed up his vocabulary a bit Continuity from book 1 which I didn t read was addressed and mostly just confused me a few times before I kinda put it together Now I understand why many procedurals do a mini summary of previous plot threads Great read within t [...]
