"Jones scorches the pages...the result is seductive and volatile!" -RT Book Reviews

HE IS A LETHAL WEAPON...
One of an army of human soldiers injected with alien DNA, Michael is a legend within this new race, split between good and evil. Untamable, he has walked on the dark side and returned to the light. Feared and misunderstood, he leaves everything behind, including the one woman destined to be his mate.

HE IS HER ENEMY...AND HER DESTINY...
Cassandra holds the key to Michael's power, and his pain. With loyalties divided and against insurmountable odds, Cassandra's heart propels her to Michael's side-but can her love do anything but destroy him...

No ordinary woman can control a creature such as Michael, and only one thing is clear-the world will never be the same...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the initial volume of Jones' (Knights of White) new Zodius series, the U.S. government loses control of its clandestine army of wind-walking, self-healing alien DNA-injected super-soldiers when its aggressive leader launches a GTECH takeover of the human world. Cassandra, daughter of GTECH project's overseer, General Powell, becomes involved with the powerful, volatile, and terrifying soldier Michael, the most advanced of the GTECHs. She is irrevocably connected to Michael after they sleep together due to their Lifebond, a DNA connection created after sex to mark her as Michael's mate, which throws their love into a technological spiral. The novel's pseudoscientific depictions of cellular changes, endless blood testing sessions, and ludicrous alien technology are so central to the plot that their ludicrousness is impossible to ignore. The simplicity and overtness of how good and evil are depicted gives a novel the depth of a superhero story pretending to be a military thriller. However, the novel's strengths lay in scenes of Michael's bad-boy rawness and fierce possessiveness, which are at odds with Cassandra's headstrong determination as they passionately fight over strategy—both on the battlefield and between the sheets. The couple's high-intensity relations will thrill readers who like their heroes dangerous and their heroines fearless. (May)

This is the first book in this series for Lisa Renee Jones and it really starts the series off with a bang!! I couldn't put the book down until I finished it then immediately grabbed the next book in the series, The Storm that is Sterling! A must read book!

The Legend of Michael centres around a group of soldiers who were injected with Alien DNA instead of a routine immunisation. I really liked this one, did take me a bit to get into it but once I did - I thoroughly enjoyed it! Very dfferent from everything else I've been reading lately. I'm looking forward to Sterling! I enjoyed the little glimpses of him in the book, he's a very intriguing character. I would recommend this to anyone who loves paranormal romance it's filled with sexy special ops soldiers, lots of action and a sprinkling of romance!

I enjoy the dark paranormal romance genre. Love the idea this series in based on. This opening book to the series introduced a lot of wonderful potential for the remaining two books (I've already purchased and will read)...slow beginning...picked up pace about halfway through and had a powerful ending. Reasons for 3 stars (out of 5): writing didn't evoke an emotional response from me, slow going first half, multiple POV seemed extraneous. I genuinely hope to enjoy the other two books in this series.

First book in the trilogy, as with all of Ms Jones's books, there is action, smoking hot heroes with special unique powers, and good storytelling.

Lisa introduces a new conspiracy romance series that will keep readers flipping through their Kindle or paperback. She keeps the suspense flowing through the book by tossing in twists and turns that you don't see coming. She creates a world that you truly come to believe and wonder if it actually could be possible. The romance is just enough in my opinion (read another review that claims wasn't enough, obviously they missed the bigger picture, no offense). She allows the story to develop on it's turn and upon finishing the story I was impatiently waiting for the rest of the series. If you decide to only read one book by Lisa Renee Jones then I highly recommend this one because then you'll want to read the rest of her works!
