Blurb: These are the rules:
1.Extremely rare and powerful empaths never escape the compound.
(Bastian Lucas escaped a year ago, and just because he’s been dragged back doesn’t mean he won’t escape again at the first opportunity….and cause as much trouble as he can while doing it.)
2.Officers do as they’re told and never ask questions.
(Captain Henry Mortimer has followed orders his entire life, but Bastian’s arrival—and the disappearance of one of Henry’s team—have gotten him wondering.)
When Major Valentine orders Henry and Bastian to investigate a series of murders committed by an asset with powers very similar to Bastian’s, it brings to light more than just a cover up. Things like why an empath who shouldn’t exist is killing senators, what exactly Valentine has been doing with the sinister asset program, and whether or not Henry and Bastian will live to see the end of this case.
Because they’re in danger of breaking rule number three as well:
3.Don’t fall in love.
Review: A compound, evil intentions and two men who are drawn toward each other. Bastian is an empath who has spent his life being experimented on at a compound run by Major Valentine. Henry is a captain of the retrieval team who goes out and retrieves assets for the major. When he meets Bastian he realizes there is more going on that he knew about. He has a decision to make, ask questions or continue being oblivious.
I loved this story. Henry is painfully oblivious of a great many things. Bastian on the other hand knew what was going on in that dreadful place. My heart wept for the many cruel things done to Bastian and other assets at the whim of an evil major and Dr.
The mystery and suspense of the story mixed with the secrets as they were revealed were edge of your seat worthy. I loved that despite the danger to himself Henry wanted answers. The allies of Bastian helped immensely in obtaining further information to move forward.
Fantastic read. I am looking forward to the next book and hopefully learning about other assets that the compound had in their grasp and seeing what else happens.
