My rating: 5 of 5 stars
For her follow up to the staggeringly good In the Wreckage, Hailey has crafted yet another brilliant mission led espionage thriller with a side order of romance.
The world building in these books is exemplary, set a few centuries into the future where metahumans are a real force to be reckoned with and there are many shady organisations desperately fighting for power in the secret behind the scenes murky underworld.
This is like X-Men meets Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with a side order of The A Team only without a sense that anything has been cribbed or borrowed.
The series feels unique and fresh, the characters are fully developed with personalities to match and, in Jamie and Kyle, Hailey has created a red hot alpha pairing who continue to push at the boundaries of what’s allowed within this military world.
Their love is powerful and their connection anchors the narrative of all the other plots built on top. I can’t wait now to find out more and also see just what’s going on with Kyle’s adoptive brother Alexei and a certain ex CIA agent.
