Overview

In the erotic first installment of the Project Alpha trilogy, a violent wasteland becomes the backdrop for two assassins who arouse in each other much more than fear and suspicion

Earth 2133

The hunter becomes the hunted

Tienan is Alpha One, created by the privileged few who live shielded from a lawless land. He’s been honed into the perfect involuntary weapon—vengeful, adaptable and ruthless. Finally free of the evil organization that created him, he’s on the run with one option to survive outside the Gate: avoid recapture, even if that means killing again. But the sexy little stalker following him is too delicious to take out.

The captive becomes the captor

Silence is a tracker with the Resistance, a rebel force amassed to end the reign of terror. For Silence to trust Tienan is a risk, but to resist his brutal prowess is impossible.

Enemies become lovers

As raw sexual need takes over, alliances will shift and treachery could become as potent—and as lethal—as desire.

Review: I had not read this series when it originally came out, but I love N.J.'s other books so I had to try it when it came up on Netgalley. I was intrigued by this version of Earth, I just wish we could find out more of the why and how Earth became as it is in this book. That the hero is genetically modified put a good twist on this story and added extra dimension to Tienan. Another thing I was hoping to learn more about was Silence's background. It seems like shapeshifters, Alphas can sense their mate at least that is how the immediate attraction/lust comes across to me. They are both in the insta-lust mode when they meet each other and both fight the attraction for their own reasons. Though the chemistry is hot and the sexiness is well-written. This is novella length so everything happens at a fast pace. That and the story-line kept me engaged and reading wanting to know more about these people. This is a trilogy so I am not sure what is going to happen next but the end of this story was not really a cliffhanger, so it could be read as a stand alone title. 4Stars *I Voluntarily Reviewed an advance reader copy of this book given to me by the publisher*

Embracing Silence is book one in the Project Alpha series by N.J. Walters. This is my first book by N.J. Walters and it was amazing. I loved it! The year is 2133 on Earth. Humans are divided between two groups. The elite that live within the confines of a camp run but a ruthless General, and those who don‘t. Tienan used to live within those walls but not ever as a free man. Tienan was an Alpha. A man genetically enhanced in an experimental program to be an unstoppable fighting machine. Once they found cheaper ways to engineer soldiers, they decided to kill off their human experiments. Tienan and his friend Logan both escaped before they could be killed. Now Tienan lives outside the walls, with only one goal, to kill the man at the head of it all, the General. For the last few weeks Tienan has known someone was following him. He finally decides to turn the tables and to catch his follower and interrogate him as to why he was being followed. But surprisingly, his follower turns out to be a woman, a very enticing woman. Silence has never known family or love. The closest thing she has is Adrian. He rescued her when she was near death at twelve years old. Now Adrian is like an adopted brother. He protects her. They live within the resistance. Adrian is their leader. She has seen the stranger and was afraid he meant harm to Adrian and their group. So she’s been following him. Little did she know she was about to become the hunted. Once Tienan turns the tables on Silence, neither he nor she expects the attraction. He wants to interrogate her but all he can think about is touching her. “With just that simple touch he had her shackled as tightly as though she were wearing chains.” “He was legendary for his control, in all areas, but Silence was making a mockery of it. He needed her the way he needed air to breathe.” The General’s men have found Tienan’s hide out. Who tipped them off? Was it Silence? This book was fantastic. It was crazy sexy but there was also suspense and danger. I love the world this author has created. I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Assassin’s Awakening, which will be Tienan’s friend, Logan’s story. “You were made for me.”

Entertaining steamy story of what the world might be like in 2133 should something horrific happen leaving some as haves and others as have nots. Throw in the heroes of the trilogy, Alphas genetically and otherwise enhanced in a research lab, and you have the setting for this story and the two that will follow. Tienan, Alpha One, is set on revenge. Having escaped his handlers he would like to meet up with Adrian, help the resistance in taking down the governing body and destroy the research facilities that created him. Silence, the woman closest to Adrian, just happens to meet him one night when she is tracking him and oh boy – what a meeting it ended up being. Eventually Adrian and Tienan meet and this episode of the trilogy ends with a HEA for Tienan and Silence. Well written and engaging I did enjoy Embracing Silence. I might have liked a prologue that could show up in all three books – one that explains what catastrophe happened in the past, how long things have been as they are and a few other pertinent details. That said – it is not necessary for a novella to have the details a novel would more than likely include. The reader knows something happened, things are not the same for all, it is the future, who is good and who is evil, etc. I will definitely look for books two and three of this trilogy and also other books by this author. Thank you to NetGalley and Carina Press for the copy of this story. This is my honest review.

104 pages for $6? What a ripoff! All of her books are very short. This story is very good. Low rating because of the cost.
