Lycanthropes, and Vampires, and Zombies, Oh My!
Unlike the familiar themes associated with parano...
Unlike the familiar themes associated with paranormal novels, Carter pulls in the paranormal elements (lycans, vampires, and zombies), creating something a little off the beaten path. In doing so, she successfully keeps the reader engaged and intrigued by the story.
A secret group of scientists, deep with the government, have been conducting insidious experiments on military soldiers and on other unwilling participants who have been misled about the "project". The "project" consists of injecting test subjects with one of three strains of virus turning them into lycan, vampire, or zombie. Once turned, more experiments are conducted, all the while making sure the test subjects never leave the premises, ever. The only way out is with a bullet in the back of the head.
After a year of acting and displaying in accordance with what the project scientists expect of them as lycans, Captain Jack Harper and his platoon, executing their plan of escape, are now battling their way out of the facilities. In the midst of their fight to leave, Jack grabs Dr. Lillian Rosewood, whom Jacks claims as his mate.
What I really like about this novel is the way Carter utilizes the other men in the platoon, not centralizing only on Jack and Lillian. This also includes Antonio, whom I find to be a very intriguing and complex individual. She was once a soldier but is now a vampire. Her directive is to find and destroy the lycans using soldiers and zombies (I know. Sounds odd). There's more to Antonio than meets the eye. All of this is what make the story even more enjoyable.
Why 4 stars, not 5? Others may disagree after reading this book, but I felt there was a little lull in the buildup of the battle between the lycans, vampires and zombies. Also, the one factor I find very irritating that I find in a majority of books, this one included, is the declaration of love between the hero and heroine in a matter of hours. In less than 36 hours of meeting, Jack and Lillian profess their love for one another. I understand these stories are works of fiction. However, this quick declaration of love taints my enjoyment of the story. I've got nothing against the protagonists saying "I love you," but let's at least make it seem more realistic.
Otherwise, this is a novel that should be read by all paranormal lovers. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Good story. Bad writing.
I had to stop reading it. The main female character is scared, then she says something supposedly witty, then she is lusting after the lead male while dead people are strewn about, and all in the same scene. I have no sense of who these characters actually are and for some reason the author keeps mentioning star trek and resident evil. It could be a good story but I can't get past the repetitive and undeveloped writing style. So not worth the $5 I spent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
