Forewarning: This is a series book and does end on a cliffhanger.
Area S2 is a futuristic shifter prison. If you have ever read Hunger Games or watched the movie The Net this book is a mixture of both. S2 is beautiful the type of landscape that attracts many but what lies inside is just the opposite. It is survival of the fittest. Shifters, and a few humans are left there to die with no hope of survival. Meals are air lifted and the prison is divided into sections.
Thane: a loaner wolf with no pack, a convicted felon with a dark past he stays to himself in Area S2. He has a rule that he doesn’t get involved with anything and anyone that doesn’t concern him. But some rules are made to be broken…..
Kalena: Silex Pharmaceutical’s assistant to the vice president of accounting finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Visiting a friend in another part of the company Kalena stumbles upon some information about the nefarious deeds of the company. What she stumbles upon cannot be unseen and because of her curiosity finds herself in a rather precarious situation. Being dubbed a spy and mistaken for her friend Kalena finds herself in Area S2 without a hope insight. Until…..
Thane has never been compelled to help anyone in Area S2 until he hears her scream and scent. Bargaining with Alpha wannabe Nolan he barters for her life for 72 hours. Kalena sparks something in Thane and their meeting is not by chance. The information she has about Silex Pharmaceutical dealings could very well be the key Thane needs to save his life.
This book was very descriptive in setting the scene for Area S2. The reader almost feels like they are in this futuristic shifter prison. One of the issues I have as a reader is that so much attention was given to setting up the scene that by the time I actually got to the store it ended. Everything was described except the physical features of the characters. I had no idea what anyone looked like except maybe an outline of the character i.e. he was built. I think this story should have been longer or some information should have been omitted. This story was very slow building but by the time you got to the end you wanted more of a story. I think this author is off to a great start and hope she doesn’t keep readers waiting long for the next installment. Please judge this book for yourself and not based on this one review.
