(The Immortal Gene, #2)
Publication date: September 16th 2016
Genres: Dystopian, New Adult, Supernatural
Since being discovered as Soulless, Nadia has become a target for both terrorist groups and government corporations. Now, her only hope for survival rests in the hands of the man sent out to kill her: Diesel, the Mad Dog terrorist.
Diesel is determined to free himself of the never ending curse of reincarnation and the haunting memories that plague his mind. But when his search leads him to Nadia, a greater desire stills him from taking her life.
Unable to see into Diesel’s cracking mind, Nadia instead puts her faith into his strength, fueled by eleven generations of unmatched rage and insanity. Their tight-rope relationship balances the two between life and death, love and rage, trust and betrayal.
Tension pulls at the hems of their dangerous companionship, and as time runs out all madmen must eventually make their choice.
Book two of the thrilling Immortal Gene series dives deeper into the danger of trusting your heart over your head.
Well now didn’t this just take the ball and chuck it way on down the alley without any light. If you haven’t read book 1, you won’t be prepared at all for book 2, and in fact it would be best if you either have an amazing memory or have a chance to read the books back to back, as there is not too much to remind you of what’s gone down in the first book herein. I did like not having the details constantly rehashed but a bit of refresher now and then does a reader good.
We also have even more heartbreaking moments, thriller-paced action and suspense, as well as a decent amount of development towards both plot and characters. Maree is certainly adept at her fight (and flight) scenes. I was really impressed with the surprises inside this particular volume and it definitely set us up for some major things to come in the next installment.
I’m looking forward to the next book and hoping for a bit more refinement, though overall these are quite good for a bit of less-than-light reading.
