Review: Connor and Shawn have survived being shot and stabbed, but it looks like a disease just might kill them both. Saving a tribe from a mad man, leads to a kiss on the cheek by a sweet older woman who just happes to have a major disease that doesn’t have a good chance at survival. Now they will have to fight an unseen battle to survive.

This book showed quite a bit of change from the previous books and I must say that it was better then I had expected. I had gone in to it not really wanting to even start it, but I have always finished a complete series without giving up, well mostly. The characters have grown quite a bit and their passion shows in it. The dialog worked better with this book and I was quite surprised by it.

I can’t say that I would read it more than once though. I am not really a fan of series that follow the same characters and there are probably only a few that have written it the way it keeps a readers attention. They still don’t come off the way their past shows them to be. They don’t really come off a military or any other black op members. That doesn’t really do a story if they don’t grow more in their stages of life. The love they have for each other however has grown quite a bit and is more believable then ever.

I am still not a fan of these books and can’t say that I would recommend them. However after this story the author might change my mind. We will just have to wait and see.
