My thoughts

“ARC was given for an honest review”

This is the first book that I have read by Dawn Ryder and also in this series. But was told that this book can be read as a stand-alone book. But you cannot! I was very confused on the storyline and who these characters were. It was very clear to me that these characters had some development through the last 5 books that I hadn’t read. The overall story arc was also confusing to me and I never really caught onto it, so it wasn’t very enjoyable.

Thais Sinclair was part of a special ops team which initially I really loved. This coupled with her fierce, brave and outspoken personality it was the type of character right up my alley. But I found that Ryder really liked repeating the fact that she was in Special Ops and was fierce and brave and I felt that was an over kill. Dunn Bateson is a civilian which was also overly mentioned here. With all that said I did enjoy the action and the suspense and that’s really what kept me reading this book. I would recommend reading this if you’ve started at the beginning of the series. Happy reading!
