No Way in Hell: A Steel Corps/Trident Security Crossover Novel Book 1 - Samantha Cole,J. C. Havens
  Free copy gifted by authors for and honest review.
The anticipation that built for this crossover two book between JB Havens Steel Corps Series and Samantha A Cole's Trident Security Series is so worth it. Having most of your favourite characters all in one place, getting background of the earlier years and how they all get to where they are in the separate series is interesting and helps understand them a lot more. Its exciting from the first page and doesn't stop building throughout, it finishes to quickly but luckily both books are releasing more or less together so no wait to get right back in with the second. You do need to read both books and in order as it is a continuation. I love all these kick-ass characters and no way can I choose between them, though it is great to have Phillips back as I have missed him. This starts with Mic and Carter when young and how they end up in the military doing what they do, there are some intense sections where they are fighting in war zones some of which is graphic, especially the interrogations. It is also the start of Trident and Steel, the setting up of each as well as the training and recruitment. I feel so lucky to be given the chance of the early read of these before the main release and believe me you do not want to miss out on them. if you haven't yet read Trident Security or The Steel Corps Series then I would actually read these two first before you go and read both the other series but if you have already read them then this is just an added bonus. Fantastic collaboration between these awesome authors and I hope that maybe they may do more in the future, definitely worth more than five stars.

No Way in Hell: A Steel Corps/Trident Security Crossover Novel Book 2 - Samantha Cole,J. C. Havens
  Arc copy given by authors for an honest review.
The mission is go in this second part of the Trident/ Steel crossover story. With the suspense building throughout the first part it continues on in this to the conclusion. Interrogations are full on and a bit gory, pretty much what you expect to get results and answers. I love the sparks between Mic and Carter and the friendship they build while working together, it is almost funny how Mic tries to dominate the Dom and gives as good as she gets, him insisting on calling her sweetheart and touching, kissing her when they are in the group knowing she has to stay in character. I loved these books so much it was hard finishing them I just wanted more, more, more. JB and Samantha have done a fantastic job inter-weaving each of their characters form their own book series into this combined one, working them in with all their strengths and even the few weaknesses, not that there's many of them. This is a very believable story of terrorism at its worst, you can easily believe there are groups like this existing and planning to commit these awful deeds against humanity and our countries. Fantastic, wonderful do not even begin to cover how good these two books are. If you like Military reads then honestly you cant go wrong, there is action a plenty as well as undercover work and interrogations giving insight into just a bit of what probably does go on behind the scenes that us ordinary public don't hear about. JB Havens and Samantha A Cole when do we get more please? waiting with fingers crossed.

Bilbo's Last Song
Bilbo's Last Song: At the Grey Havens - J.R.R. Tolkien,Pauline Baynes

Probably the most fitting way leave The Lord of the Rings behind is to visit Bilbo's Last Song.

 

Smaug, a red dragon, curled on a pile of golden treasure

 

A poem written as a gift to his secretary, Bilbo's Last Stand was published posthumously and serves as an epilogue to The Lord of the Ringsand The Hobbit. Illustrated by Pauline Baynes, the poem makes a graceful transition to picture book, with paired scenes from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Ringsas Bilbo pens his farewell to Middle Earth.

Out of my way
No Way in Hell: A Steel Corps/Trident Security Crossover Novel Book 2 - Samantha Cole,J. C. Havens

This is the 2nd book, Part Two of the No Way In Hell crossover from both the acclaimed Steel Corp. & Trident Security book series.  It gives you background into some very private characters and how they came to be where they are.  I recommend reading this in order, as it will enhance understanding and enjoyment.

 

Bea AKA "Mic" Michaels and T. Carter have now kissed and decided to remain friends.  While very protective of one another, they are also glad when they have each other's backs.  It is hard to trust when you are this far undercover.

 

Carter knows under different circumstances, he would have liked to be able to take down the enemy without involving a woman.  Especially not one who commands respect.  One no one wants to lose.

 

Such a great story and very powerful message.  I really loved that the characters worked well together.  There are obvious signs in this book of character development, and continued enjoyment while reading these characters later - can be found in their respective series books.  I give this amazing story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Here they come
No Way in Hell: A Steel Corps/Trident Security Crossover Novel Book 1 - Samantha Cole,J. C. Havens

This book gives us the back story for Steel Corp character Bea AKA Mic, and Trident Security Carter.  The 2 most amazing characters in the military books marketed lately.  Seriously private, and very profound characters.

 

The commonality among them is they get the job done.  They both have such a lonely existence.  Doing the work for the country, sometimes is very focused, and little time for yourself.

 

This is the story that gets it all started, and the background of these amazing characters that finalizes in the next book, No Way In Hell Part Two.  I cannot wait to finish!  I give this terrific book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
