Hm.
Perfection Challenged - Jade Kerrion

Not quite happy.

 

As for the last installment, it kept me reading and interested, although I don't really know why.

 

I am not really interested in any of the characters. And there are plot holes galore (e.g. why use Danyael's looks as genetic template for Galahad, the perfect human being, if the creator has seen Danyael last when he was two or three years old. Pretty todlers can become not very pretty adults...and the whole explanation that Danyael's genes were somehow his father's ticket to immortality didn't make any sense...)

 

So.

 

Still a recommended read, if you don't want to think too much, just some action packed UF story about genetics and mutants...

It kept me reading
Perfect Weapon - Jade Kerrion

It has the same weaknesses as the others, Danyael is still too good to be true, the story comes across as artificial, some characters and plot lines were introduced and then abandoned (e.g. the telepathic doctor who regularly stole Danyael's blood - it was to explain Danyael's shild in the first installment - it somehow vanished from the story...)

 

I still don't like Zara, still don't see why she needs to be so unearthly beautiful and seductive.

 

Galahad is more and more just a template, not a real person, he changes according to what is needed to further the story.

 

But still.

 

It kept me reading.

So, I am still hanging in there.
Perfect Betrayal - Jade Kerrion

It still has all the things I didn't like, first and foremost Danyael being the victim, TGTBT, being manipulated etc.

 

I really dislike Zara, I don't see how anyone would like her, and this whole "to Danyael's empathic eyes, she is a gliterring jewel" - she is a selfish, mean and cold person, distrustful and without any sense of humor. WHY??? Why would her soul be glittering?????

 

Anyway.

 

There are many many plotholes, especially around this whole empath-topic but also Galahad as a plot device instead of a person, and the world-building is bent to serve the story line a lot, but it somehow still is a good read.

 

We'll see how this goes on.

Good, but quite depressing...
Perfection Unleashed - Jade Kerrion

This was well written and had a solid world-building and story flow.

 

It unfortunately doubles with "Mirija" - I would not recommend to read both, because that is boring. It is the same story, partially word for word, just told from another PoV, but without any new or exciting insight.

 

What I didn't like: Danyael is to good to be true and Zara got on my nerves quite quickly.

She sounds like an A**. Not sure why Danyael would give her the time of the day, or why the soul of a unlikable mercenary and killer would sparkle to the eyes of an Empath. That does not make any sense. And I do not like when characters in books are unearthly beautiful - and have violet eyes. 

With Galahad and Danyael it makes a certain sense because the genetic thing is bascially the core of the story, similar for Lucien. 

 

I found it quite sad - how Danyael was the beaten puppy all the time. 

I took a sneak peek into the next few installments and it doesn't look like his life will improve...started the second one, but I think this will be it for me with Danyael's tragic heroic life.

Short and an ok read
Miriya: A Genetic Engineering Science Fiction Thriller Series (Double Helix Women Book 1) - Jade Kerrion

Good introduction into the world-building.

 

Couldn't really identify with the protag, but the world sounded interesting so that I started the series.
