"An empty mind is a safe mind." Yulia's father always taught her to hide her thoughts and control her emotions to survive the harsh realities of Soviet Russia. But when she's captured by the KGB and forced to work as a psychic spy with a mission to undermine the U.S. space program, she's thrust into a world of suspicion, deceit, and horrifying power. Yulia quickly realizes she can trust no one--not her KGB superiors or the other operatives vying for her attention--and must rely on her own wits and skills to survive in this world where no SEKRET can stay hidden for long.

Our customer reviews
I love the premise of SEKRET. The mystery and the political intrigue surrounding it was done so well. The main character and her development was also done beautifully. Having flashbacks of her life before being a tool for the KGB was done with her dreaming it. And we also find out who is causing her to dream these flashbacks. The writing was wonderful and it thought it was done very well, especially the characters who were developed from the very beginning. I wanted a story that kept me on my toes. I just needed something to keep the pacing going but there was nothing keeping me. So I struggled reading it and even managed to stop reading it for a while just so I can get back to it later. If you're looking for more character based development books, this one is for you. If you're looking for more of a story that keeps pushing, pass on it.show moreby Giselle SM
