Of Eternal Life

Operation: Middle of the Garden, #1

In the hidden basement lab of a military research facility in Needles, California Eli Johnson jerks to consciousness. He is strapped to a stretcher and remembers nothing until he hears a voice he knows only as "The Tormentor". That's when it all comes back: he has been a prisoner in this lab for eight years and he's about to die.

Abilene Miller, a newly minted doctor desperate to prove herself, snaps up the opportunity to work at a military hospital, but the reality of Needles proves to be vastly different from the pitch of the two recruiters. She spends her days running labs and wishing for things to be different.

When Abilene stumbles across Eli's body in a supply closet, she definitely gets different. She's shocked when the dead man jerks back to life in her arms and is infuriated when he kidnaps her. He thinks she's part of a conspiracy; she thinks he's insane. Only together can they find out the truth and brave the risks they run in loving each other.

Of Eternal Life is a very interesting book about medical research on the Garden of Eden from the Bible. There are also ties to the American military in Afghanistan. Making the perfect solider is not a new concept in books but this author has made new twists and turns to the concept. Readers get a strong romance woven into the story. Eli and Abilene are the new modern take on Adam and Eve. They are perfect for each other but have human trust issues that causes problems. But they work themselves out at the end.

If you enjoy military suspense and a strong romance try this book. Of Eternal Life is a good page turner to the end. I am glad to see that this is part of a series and I look forward to the next book.
