A genetic time-bomb.
A woman in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It’s up to her to save the world.

In a world transformed by the Genetic Revolution, Kyle Norwood is an honest-to-God human and proud of it. His deadly skills come from hard work and not genetic sleight of hand. An easy mission to protect two Proficere Labs scientists turns into a shoot-out that leaves a scientist and a federal agent dead. Worse, the research data the scientists were carrying disappears.

In a world where human derivatives are hated and feared, Sofia Rios is almost human. When a fight during her waitressing shift turns fatal, a dying scientist launches her into the shady world of scientific espionage. The unwilling trustee of research that people would kill to obtain, Sofia turns to the man who steps out of the shadows to protect her, even though he appears as dangerous and disreputable as the people who hunt her.

Together, Sofia and Kyle must unravel the truth behind the illicit information she carries before one or both of them are killed. Their mutual attraction sparkles, but the spark could just as easily become an explosion if Kyle ever finds out that Sofia is a despised telekinetic.

This award-winning standalone futuristic thriller is perfect for X-Men, Heroes, and Alphas fans. Grab your copy and join the Genetic Revolution today!

Once again Ms Kerrion has taken us into her world of Mutants, Clones and more. This series is one of the best I have come across in a long time. With rich characters that make you want to read and a lot of action and tension, you find yourself dragged from the opening page to the conclusion. As happens every time I found myself reading this book in one sitting.

Another wonderful story from Jade Kerrion. It was great to be reunited with Danyael Sabre and Zara Itani again. It is filled with intrigue, mafia and government officials chasing Sofia Rius and Kyle Norwood, as Kyle tries to protect Sofia from being taken. He rescues her from the Rue Maca and discovers that he can overcome his prejudice of mutants through his love for her. Although this is a powerful story of underworld intrigue. A deadly virus and violence. It is also a beautiful love story that brings joy to your heart and a smile to your lips.

In a world where genetically mutant humans are the norm, Sofia’s telekinesis skills are too mild to be called anything but Carnival Tricks. Waitressing while going to nursing school, Sofia finds herself in the middle of an illegal exchange of data between some scientists and the mob. During the exchange she is shot up with the microchip and finds herself on the receiving end of a massive manhunt-for her. Kyle Norwood, hired to protect the scientists stays one step ahead of the mob in finding Sofia and ends up helping her keep the information out of the wrong hands. This novel was a very interesting mix of science fiction and romance. The reader is let in on the secret that Sofia is a very mild genetically mutated human. Kyle is 100% human and is very prejudiced against anyone who isn’t. So you have a book filled with a couple different kinds of tension. There’s a mad race against the mob to keep the data out of the wrong hands and then there is the attraction between Sofia and Kyle, but Kyle doesn’t know she’s a mutant. Both plots were well played and I liked how Kyle’s prejudice was dealt with in a realistic way, even in a science fiction plot. How would you like to be able to kill or heal with a touch or throw busses down the street with your mind? The other characters in this book gave this world an interesting edge and I’m excited to see their stories play out. Next up? Another book from the Genetic Revolution! ❤❤❤❣
