She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.
Now, she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.
When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.
Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.
In this tautly plotted novel, Stephenie Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she’s one of the world’s bestselling authors. @goodreads
I LOVE the Twilight saga and I don't give a damn what the haters think. But I'm not sure if I will like this book because it's not my normal genre but I have been surprised in the past so we shall see =)
I thought this book was awesome! I was worried at first because I'm weird about mysteries/thrillers, sometimes I love them and sometimes not so much. But I was pleasantly surprised that SM wrote such a great thriller.
I just wished they could have taken all of the dogs and that's all I'm going to say on that because you need to read the book!
Dr. Juliana Fortis has been on the run for some time. They want to kill her for reasons. She changes names constantly and keeps on the run. She booby-traps any place she stays in and they are some awesome booby traps. She sleeps in a gas mask and other things. Sounds like a pretty crap life.
Then she is pulled back in to the fold in a sense with some information email to her by an old friend from the work place. She decides to go after the person they want her to find because it's a matter of life and death for millions of people.
BUT . . .
It was a lie and she tortured a sweet man for no reason. This bothers her to no end and said boys brother almost takes her out with the help of his dog Einstein. He found that wasn't so easy to do =)
The sweet brother is Daniel and the special ops brother is Kevin. He's off the grid for reasons. And he ends up taking Daniel and Alex (Juliana) to his hidden compound where he has a partner, Arnie, that run a guard dog/house pet business. I love all of the dogs and all of the characters.
But poor Daniel is an idiot. I mean you have all of these people trying to kill you in the world and he goes off and does something stupid. So now not only are people looking for Alex (Juliana) and Kevin but they will take out Daniel too and anyone or thing that gets in their way.
Yes, a lot of people die and some things happen to the dogs. BUT, they didn't expect to run into Alex - The Chemist, a weapon of torture and how she can take you out. I mean there WAS these assassins but . . . .
Back to Daniel, I wanted to smack him sideways for being so stupid. I mean yes, he's never been in situations like Alex or his brother Kevin. But I have never been in those situations and even my tiny brain knows not to do stupid stuff like he did! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
I still love Daniel because he's a really sweet person and he's a pretty decent learner and excellent with a gun =)
They are all on the move to find and take out the target that is trying to kill them all. All kinds of stuff goes down and in the end some of them end up where they want to be. <-- Like that wasn't cryptic. LOL, just read the book and you can know the whole story.
I very much enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down actually. I waited so long because I felt like I was going to be bored because these kinds of books a lot of times bore me to tears. And for some weird reason I thought we were going to be sitting in a lab, doing boring lab stuff and blah. It wasn't like that and it's all good so there.
