Author: Nina Croft
Publisher: Entangled Otherworld, Entangled Publishing
Date of Publication: September 5th, 2016
This is the dramatic start to an enthralling science fiction adventure and romance set in contemporary times. It involves a group of paranormally talented people who have been brought up in foster care before being brought together to form a team, the Tribe. They used to think they were working for the good guys but the death of some of them has made them question their orders and escape from where they were being experimented on. That was three months ago and now their former bosses have ordered them to be captured and some of them captured it is up to their leader, Jake Callahan, to endeavour to ensure they can all be free. To do this he instigates the kidnapping of Christa Winters, the beloved daughter of the man who used to be their boss and the man currently holding and threatening the lives of Jake’s team mates. Christa is a science geek who has no idea what her Dad is involved with and who is instantly attracted to Jake – and the attraction is mutual! As more people are murdered, danger lurks from unknown sources and soon Jake is desperate to keep the Tribe and Christa safe . . . .
This is an action packed adventure with well developed characters, a superb plot and that ending is one heck of a cliffhanger! Initially it seems a straightforward story but the author has cleverly interwoven a variety of threads together to create an intriguing story that had me reluctant to put it down, I wanted to know what happened next! Now I can’t wait to read the future books in this amazing series. I have no hesitation at all in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys stories set in the present day but involving science fiction elements together with mystery, adventure and romance!
I was gifted a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Jake Callahan, leader of the Tribe, has always believed he’s one of the good guys. Now, hunted by the government he used to work for, he’s taking a crash course in being bad. What he desperately needs is a bargaining tool, and that’s unfortunate for Christa Winters, daughter of Jake’s former boss.
Christa is a scientist, a total geek, and a good girl with a secret hankering for bad boys. Which turns out to be embarrassingly inconvenient when she’s kidnapped by a stunningly gorgeous—but obviously bad-to-the-bone—man intent on using her against the father she loves. A man with a seemingly uncanny ability to know exactly when she’s thinking about kissing him—which is most of the time.
But people are dying, and it becomes clear that the stakes are much higher than Jake ever imagined. Someone is out to obliterate the Tribe and everyone associated with it, including Christa. Only by working together to uncover the secrets behind the past, can they ever hope to have a future.
