This story was rich in mystery, murder, narcism, intrigue, and superpowers. Clearly, the author has some background or connection to the government and the military or maybe she just did her research really well. The detail in which she described the inner workings of each was interesting and managed to pull you into each scene. Can we say the forced murder storyline aboard Butchart's ship? When Sidney, a member of the rebellion, fails to die or respond to the medicines provided this was the beginning of Waterhouse's undoing and the author gave me a front seat ride to watch it.
I think of all the characters and concurrent storylines, I loved Madame's the most. She is on some narcissistic level relatable. A woman who knows what she wants has the means to get it and most importantly expects it. She even had When she's crossed, she can't believe the audacity of the admiral, Sidney, and Danik, who you'll meet when you read this quick-paced well-written story. You'll enjoy the chemistry between Sidney and Sam. It was touching, especially towards the end when death comes for one of them. The same goes for Sam's transition to his new life. Two words -male birth again this story touches on so much that it has enough to keep everyone entertained. You can purchase your copy here via Amazon.
