Blurb:

It’s Renna’s biggest job yet – convincing MYTH leadership that she’s put away her lock picks and is ready to save the galaxy, despite the dangerous implant in her brain. But with the Athena on the run, she’s working solo and facing her most ruthless enemy, the traitor Pallas, who’ll go to any lengths to destroy the MYTH organization. Including framing Renna for a devastating assault on MYTH HQ that leaves their defenses crippled and hundreds dead.   Now that MYTH believes she’s a dangerous double-agent, Renna escapes their firing squad before they put more holes in her than a pair of fishnet stockings. But the ticking time-bomb in her head is the one thing Pallas needs to complete his master plan and he’s not about to let her get away. Even worse, he’s discovered the only thing that will bring Renna to her knees – threatening Captain Nick Finn.  Out of time and options, Renna’s got one shot to take down the traitor before he annihilates everything she loves, even though winning this battle may cost her everything.

My Rating: 4.5/5 stars

 

My Review:

Wow! Jamie Grey has created a completely unique science fiction novel.  The reader was once again drawn into Renna’s world. Although I enjoyed the first book this sequel was ten times better. Despite the fact this novel is written in third person it was easy to become attached to the characters. Particularly Renna as she was feisty and easy to relate to. Sometimes I find it hard to keep up with what’s going on in these kind of books but I had no problem with this one. From the very beginning the readers attention is grabbed and they find themselves desperate to find out what will happen next. The author leaves her readers on the edge of there seats and leaves them wanting more. This novel is jammed full of action, drama, romance and adventure.

Overall this was a brilliant sequel full of action and romance. I can’t wait to read more of Jamie Grey’s books as I enjoyed this series very much. I would recommend anyone looking for something a bit different to read to give this series a try.

 

 

 

 

 Get to know the author:

Jamie Grey spent most of her childhood writing stories about princesses who saved the day and pretending to be a daring explorer. It wasn’t until much later that she realized she should combine the two. Now, as a tech-obsessed gamer geek, her novels mix amazing scientific developments, future worlds, and the remarkable characters that live in them.  Jamie lives in Michigan with her boyfriend and their pets, who luckily tolerate her overspending on tea, books, and video games.
