Action packed futuristic romance that takes you into a well thought out world that mixes fantasy, time travel and super powers. Each book builds on the one before it so it is necessary to read this series in order. Otherwise, you may become confused and lose yourself in the chaos. This book explores more on the betrayal the one team is experiencing and the subtle changes that the other needs. In the mist of all the action is a romance no one expected. Amanda is unstable and strikes out with deadly force without warning. Simon can read minds but can he calm her enough to see if there is anything salvageable within Amanda? Once I reconnected with these characters, I thoroughly enjoyed my action packed trip through the future. The characters are complex as is the world. This book reads more like a sci-fi adventure novel than a romance yet the romance is the core of the story. Personally, I can see where this series should attract a more diverse readership than just romance readers. Ms. Long is a master storyteller and it definitely shows.
Amanda has been rescued but her mind is close to destroyed driving her into insanity. She has to be isolated as to not hurt anyone, including herself. When she does strike out, Simon seems to be the only one able to calm her. But, can he bring her back to who she was or is it too late?
