The Last Victim (A Ryker Townsend Story) by Jordan Dane
The Last Victim (A Ryker Townsend Story) - Jordan Dane

The Last Victim (A Ryker Townsend Story) by Jordan Dane kept my kindle screen on fire whisking through the pages. This brutal suspense-filled thriller about a serial killer is five stars start to finish.

Ryker Townsend's first person perspective & his fear of descent into madness as he battles his psychic gifts & the demons that gift brings is well delineated. The third person account of other characters that are members of his FBI team is also intriguing. There are layers of mystery, romance, angst & suspense woven throughout this fascinating book.

This is the first time I've read Jordan Dane's work, but I will look forward to reading more.

I received a free kindle copy from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. My opinions were not influenced by this.

The Last Victim (A Ryker Townsend Story) - Jordan Dane

Ryker Townsend is an FBI Profiler with an advantage.  He doesn’t count it as an advantage and to him, it is more of a curse than a blessing.  While most profilers rely on what they can determine from clues left at the scene, Ryker begins having nightmares giving him images into what the victim experienced.  The dreams become particularly gruesome as they deal with a serial killer known as the Totem Killer (TK) who dismembers his victims.  But, he left one victim whole placing him at the top of a totem pole.  That victim is Nathan Applegate.  Ryker travels to Applegate’s home in Alaska and begins to work with Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Justine Peterson.  She is more engaged in this case than he first realizes as she’d had a close and intimate relationship with Nathan.  Time is not on their side now that TK seems to have taken another victim.

This story moves along at a very quick pace.  At times, the reader needs to process Ryker’s thoughts to determine if they are real or a dream.  Then, once he becomes injured and begins to hallucinate, the reader’s job becomes even more difficult.  And, though it sounds confusing, it’s not.  I considered it a great challenge and I loved the additional mystification.  The story is undoubtedly gritty and not for the faint of heart.  The story teases of a love triangle, but it never fully develops.  SA Lucinda Crowley feels great affection for Ryker, but he seems not to be aware.  When he meets the beautiful Justine Peterson, the scenes make the reader wonder what may develop.  This is one of the best FBI profiler stories I’ve read with flawed, relatable characters who remain strong in the face of danger.  The Last Victim is the first in the Ryker Townsend series.  Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Crystal Fire (The Hunted #2) by Jordan Dane
Crystal Fire - Jordan Dane

Book two of The Hunted picks up after the disastrous firefight in the abandoned tunnels. The indigo kids have taken refuge with Gabe's family and are training to protect themselves. But there is a new kid with some really strange new powers to contend with. No one is quite sure who he is or what he can do right now.

This new kid is Oliver Blue and the Believers have him. They have a handful of others as well that will also play an important role in this story. While I didn't get into this storyline as well as the first book in a general sense, there were some very big scenes that I really loved. Many of these revolved around Oliver and how he learns to control his abilities and use them.

The ending of the story was one of the best I'd read in a long time. There was a lot of happiness, but the story was left slightly unresolved. This is definitely not a cliffhanger, but I wonder if at some point there will be a spin-off series or third book.

*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Indigo Awakening (The Hunted #1) by Jordan Dane
Indigo Awakening - Jordan Dane

This book reminds me a bit of several TV shows - especially The Tomorrow People. A new breed of human has evolved with special powers. In Indigo Awakening, the powers are different for everyone - and the "normal" people that know about them are quite scared. A group knows as the Believers is determined to get rid of them all - they don't care that most of them are just kids. 

Enter Lucas and Rayne Darby. Lucas is an indigo kid and Rayne is his normal sister who doesn't have a clue what is going on at the beginning. She only knows Lucas is in trouble. I didn't quite connect to either character - there was too much jumping around to really get attached. We also meet Gabe - he's something else completely different. I feel closer to him than most of the other characters by the end - and I really loved his "dog". 

This story is full of build up as the Believers hunt for Lucas and try following Rayne and Gabe to find him. Lots and lots of build up to a knock down fight that just didn't quite live up to my expectations. It was good - things went bad, things went right, the story move don. I didn't expect such a major show down so early in the series and since it was seemed so big, I wonder where the author is going to take us next. I'll find out soon. Crystal Fire is in my bag and ready to go.

Blood Score
Blood Score - Jordan Dane A great mystery thriller with a romantic twist. The story is evenly paced and well executed. I found it entertaining and the characters easily likable, they're flawed which gives readers a realistic connection to the characters. I found that the story bends and dances between thriller and erotica as if the author couldn't quite decide which genre they were really wanting to write it doesn't take from the story but it could be distracting to some readers. However I enjoyed the read despite the mixed signals. :)
