Guest Review by Cathrina Constantine:
The Best Selling author of Don't Forget To Breathe, Cathrina won Readers' Favorite International Book Award for 2015, New Apple Medalist for 2016, Literary Classics Gold Award and Literary Classics Seal of Approval. She resides in Western New York and grew up in the small village of Lancaster, NY, where she married her sweetheart. Cathrina is devoted to raising 5 cherished children, and now her grandchildren.

Cathrina loves to immerse herself in great books of every kind of genre, which helps to write purely for entertainment, and hopefully to inspire readers. When not stationed at her computer you can find her in the woods taking long walks with her dog.

Cathrina's rating: 5 of 5 stars

Juliet loved growing up at the seaside, although it meant lonely hours chasing after the other beach rats while her mother worked as a seamstress. Juliet never expected her seaman father to inherit a fortune and move the family to New Addison City. Suddenly her mother is a socialite and Juliet is best friends with a strong-willed girl who actually likes her. When Juliet’s new friend welcomes her to the Runners, a gang that has plagued the East Coast for years, Juliet sees it as the opportunity to fit in, learn tricks, and make eyes at one of the hottest members. What the gang does isn’t really wrong…right? She’s used to being a pawn for the Runners, but she starts to question what she sees as harmless fun when the gang uses her to attack a young officer.

Jonathan Montgomery vowed to end the Runners after they murdered his family. He joined the Riders, an elite police force dedicated to stopping the Runners’ crime spree. They have put him in New Addison City, but rookie mistakes follow Jonathan as he struggles to accomplish his goal, until a young woman feeds him inside information to bring down the Runners.

Between murders and secrets, Juliet will need to find her strength to help Jonathan, before the founder of the Runners crawls up from the sewers amongst her inventions to burn down the city.

Cathrina says: The prolific author, Jordan Elizabeth knows how to write an intriguing novel full of twists and turns. Even though, RUNNERS AND RIDERS is considered part of The Treasure Chronicles, it is a stand alone novel.

The first couple of chapters leads the reader into the gist of the story. I'd compare the Runners to a brutal gang of characters that kill and threaten people. The Riders are police who try to stop the Runners. And Juliet is a lonely girl searching for friendship and finds it in a girl named Anna. Anna not only befriends Juliet, but teaches her how to steal, and more. Anna's brother is part of the Runners which instantly incorporates Anna and Juliet into their schemes. When the Rider, Jonathan enters New Addison, Juliet is not only enamored, but realizes her association with the Runners isn't exactly what she wanted.

Runners and Riders is a steampunk western novel that will definitely keep you entertained.

Thank you Cathrina!
