My Review:

As Irina and her friends discover more about their own and others’ powers they also discover that Ivan, their arch enemy, is planning triggering a massive earthquake in San Fransisco. As the renegades link up with other variants, they need to be wary as not everyone is being honest. There’s danger from double crossing people who are pretending to help them as well as from Ivan and his team. It is a race against time as the team strive to thwart the Innoviro organisation and their plans. There are many interwoven threads running through the story, with each scene brought to life in the reader’s imagination by the author’s brilliant portrayal, making it feel like you’re actually there, a witness to the events and interactions.

This fast paced, enthralling series covers so many genres! It includes aspects of science fiction, paranormal, suspense, thriller and romance in a real page turner which continues from where the first novel in the series, In Irina’s Cards, finished. This is an action packed sequel that I thoroughly enjoyed and a great addition to the series. I highly recommend reading this series in the correct sequence as each book builds on events from the previous one and the ending to this left me keen to read the sequel as soon as possible!

I was gifted a copy of this book by the author, in exchange for an honest review.


Irina and her renegade variant friends are scrambling to pick up the trail of their former employer, Ivan, and his globally catastrophic scheme. After strategically sharing their story with the media, the group heads south from Vancouver to Seattle hoping to recruit more experienced—and lethal—variants to their cause.

Their attention develops a laser focus on an engineered disaster mere days ahead of them. Ivan is using what staff and resources remain of Innoviro Industries to set off a violent earthquake in San Francisco. While they fight to stop the earthquake, Irina pushes the love of her life Jonah as far away as she can, trying to keep his unstable genetic degradation in check.

Irina’s friends think they’ve seen the worst that Innoviro could bring forth by the time they reach a secret facility in the Mojave Desert. As they near the property, the group uncovers a horror none of them had ever imagined.
