About the book

On a rescue mission in the heart of the Indonesian jungle, Dr. Draden Freeman and his GhostWalker team need to extract the wounded as quickly as possible—or risk spreading a deadly virus unleashed by a terrorist cell. When Draden gets infected, he forces his team to leave him behind. He won’t risk exposing anyone else. He intends to find the ones responsible and go out in a blaze of glory….

Shylah Cosmos’s mission is to track the virus and remain unseen. Her enhanced senses tell her that the gorgeous man eradicating the terrorists one by one is a GhostWalker—and his lethal precision takes her breath away. When he’s hit by a lucky shot, she can’t stop herself from stepping in, not knowing that by saving his life she’s exposed herself to the virus.

There’s no telling how much time Draden and Shylah have left. Racing to find a cure, they quickly realize that they’ve found their perfect partner just in time to lose everything. But even as the virus threatens to consume their bodies, they’ve never felt more alive.

My Thoughts

I started this series years ago and was totally addicted to it but I started to drift away from it at some point. The story lines just haven’t gripped me the way the early books did but I happen to pick up the recent books from the library and got sucked back in. I ordered this one on release day and it was a great pick.

I enjoyed both Peony’s and Draden’s characters and their situation makes you think about how would you behave in their situation. If you knew you were going to die a painful life, how would you spend your last days. I also liked how much Peony and Draden respected each other’s abilities. Often in these types of books the hero can easily tip over into too much macho, protect the lady despite how capable she is, type of personality. However, Draden struck that perfect balance. He had a few understandable moments of wanting to save Peony but I think those were understandable reactions so they didn’t feel overbearing.

Another great thing about this story is despite Peony and Draden having to be isolated due to their illness we still got to see several of the characters from earlier books. I always love seeing how the couples from earlier books are doing. All in all I am glad I came back to this series.
