Undercover With a SEAL - Cindy Dees (HRS #1857 - July 2015)
Undercover with a SEAL (Code: Warrior SEALs) - Cindy Dees

Series: Code: Warrior SEALs (Book 1)

Going undercover in a seedy New Orleans club to find her brother, Eve Hankova knows the dangers. But she isn't prepared for the blazing heat arcing between her and the customer who "buys" her for his exclusive pleasure. Like wildfire, it burns hot and out of control.

 

Navy SEAL Ashe Konig knows no other way to protect Eve from the Russian mob she's infiltrated at the club. But for this disillusioned loner, is it a suicide mission? As heavily armed mobsters breathe down their necks, the stubborn woman refuses to quit. Ashe doesn't know who poses the greater danger--the ruthless killers who threaten their lives or the sweet innocent who threatens his heart.

 

Excellent book with action and suspense that kept me turning the pages to the very end. Ashe has been ordered to take some time off by his boss, because he has been taking too many chances. So he heads for New Orleans, where he grew up but hasn't been in seven years. He finds himself wandering the French Quarter and ends up in a bar called the Who Doo VooDoo. He'd just settled into his seat when a fight broke out and steps in to help stop it. Next thing he knows he has a lap full of waitress, as Eve Hankova attempts to deliver a thank you whiskey to him. He's surprised to feel an instant connection with her, and a feeling that she needs protecting.

 

Eve, or Hank as she goes by, is the sister of an art dealer who has gone missing, and the Who Doo is the last place he was seen. So Hank has gone undercover as a waitress, trying to find out what has happened to him. She isn't a trusting person, but there is something about Ashe that says she can trust him. She also doesn't want to blow her cover, so she tries to avoid him for the rest of the evening.

 

That evening, he follows her home to make sure she gets there safely and ends up saving her from an attacker. It doesn't take him too long to find out just what she's gotten involved in, and his protective instincts are engaged. What he doesn't expect is to find Hank rapidly coming to mean a whole lot more to him. He's a loner who has never been a ladies man, but he doesn't want to let Hank out of his sight. And the more he learns about what is happening, the more worried about her he gets. I really enjoyed seeing the methods he uses to protect her.

 

I loved the connection between Ashe and Hank. Both are loners who don't connect easily with others. Ashe isn't a man who plays games, he says exactly what he means at all times and expects the same from her. Hank feels a bit guilty because there is some information about herself that she hasn't told him, but she was trained early that family comes first. By the time she knew she could trust him all the way, she wasn't sure how to tell him. The chemistry between them is also smoking hot, which has both of them wondering if there is any chance of a future for them. In the end, I loved the way that Ashe put his feelings for Hank out there and took a chance that she could handle who and what he was. What he told her about how she changed his life was incredibly romantic for him.

 

This book had me on the edge of my seat all the way through. It was obvious early on that there was much more than just illegal sex going on at the club, and whatever Hank had done was stirring up a whole lot of trouble. I loved seeing how Ashe first got his former teammate involved in helping them. I loved the banter between them, and the respect. Bastien's current job as a cop gives them the means to bring down the operation at the club, once they can get all the proof they need. As the days went on, the danger for Ashe and Hank grew stronger. It wasn't long before Ashe's boss got involved, because of the information that was turning up. When suspicious information turned up about Hank's background, Ashe began to worry that he'd been had, but his heart refused to believe it. As the danger intensified, Ashe's solo attempt to help Hank turned into a full fledged operation with the help of his team. The final confrontation was amazing with a really interesting twist involving Hank's brother. With a start like this, I can't wait to see what's next in this series.

"The Warrior Code", by Ty Patterson
The Warrior Code (Warriors Series Book 3) - Ty Patterson
Book 3, in the Warriors series

This third installment is one true action thriller from start to finish. Mr. Patterson has once more given a good infusion of vitality to his story and provided enough hard core excitement to make our adrenaline raise more than a notch. Be ready this book is all action and could be a good standalone since there is no need to know the backstory to understand the plot.

This series continues to evolve, the scenes are creative and some even funny, lots of good twists and turns to keep us entertained throughout. The action sequences are vivid, well-played out, fresh and exciting. The story is tight and flows smoothly. All this narrated in a dry and witty voice. What’s not to like. Zeb and his team are not only a melange of every action heroes we read in other thrillers their characters bring back the passion and all the testosterone needed to provide us with a captivating and very suspenseful journey.

At the heart of this 3rd story are Beth and Meghan, twin sisters who are pursued by ruthless gangsters and are facing capture and probably death. Till Zeb steps in and saves the day.

If you like over the top action, give this series a go.

My Hero is Back and so is the action
The Warrior Code (Warriors Series Book 3) - Ty Patterson
First of all a huge thanks to the author for giving me a copy of his book and bringing up with such a wonderful and brilliant series

You may think that for hardcore action thriller fans there would be a whole lot of options available out there. True! There are. But none that are good enough to make your adrenaline skyrocket. In my view a true action book should make your blood pump or the very least develop an urge in you to punch someone(kids !! don't try this at home) and The warrior code fulfills both these criteria for me.

The warrior Code in a whole lot of ways reminds me of Jack Reacher, when the series used to be good and oozed testosterone.while that series has mellowed down, the warrior series is only getting better and better. The central character has been brought back with so much passion and power that you almost forgive his absence all these while (i said forgive ! not forget ) . A good action thriller is hard to narrate especially the action part. And that is where i am impressed by in this book.

Show me fist fights or dirty words like, Remington, colt or Sniper shot and i am there and the book has no dearth of it

Although everything works perfectly for me, there were two things that bothered me in the book. The Head and the tail. Head in the sense that , there was a huge revelation towards the end of the second book and the starting of this book did not even had a hint towards this major turning point. Its like nothing of this sort happened. Tail in the sense that, the climax and the wrapping up had still loose ends and unanswered question for me. Lets just say that yes it was a good end but something seems to be missing.

The book can be a good standalone as the plot is fresh and with new beginning and needs no background information to understand the plot and the required essentials are given for the convenience of the new readers.In fact i would say that i got more background information on many of these characters in the this book rather than the previous ones.

Those who are planning to file a missing persons report for "Jack Reacher" may find him in a new revamped avatar in this series. This book is for all those who are hard core fans of Jack Reacher or Mitch rapp because the central character Zeb and his team are a melange of every action hero you ever worshiped. One thing i like is that while other books emphasis on "the lone wolf" factor, the warrior series is all about team play and the co- ordination between the team.

The action sequences are perfectly portrayed through a well played out narration and the characters of the book are stronger than ever. The warrior series is emerging as a strong contender in the action genre with a powerful, intelligent and masculine hero to back it up. Its everything the "jack reacher" series started out as and ended up loosing. The plot has good twists and turns and keeps the entertainment portion thoroughly fed. The series is getting better and better, becoming hard to avoid.

How was it?

Inuyasha Volumes 9 and 10
Inuyasha vol.9 - Rumiko Takahashi
InuYasha, Vol. 10: A Warrior's Code - Rumiko Takahashi

There are three arcs running through the two volumes, but as always the most important is the middle one. The first deals with a creepy man who eats humans and has a jewel shard. Inuyasha also has to deal with the new moon when he turns human. This was developed into an episode (two actually) but set later in the series so they could go straight to Sango.

 

The second arc concerns Sango, an amazing demon hunter who is manipulated by Naraku into going after Inuyasha after her village is destroyed.  She realizes that it was actually Naraku, but not soon enough to go after him. She also reveals a bit of the history of the Shikon Jewel, aka the Jewel of Four Souls which was created by Midoriko, a priestess who could  purify each of the four souls, which I think was animal, demon, plant, and rock. She perished after a long battle against a demon (who had previously been a man who wanted her and took many demons into his body like Onigumo) in which she took his soul into hers, fusing them and expelling them which created the jewel. Supposedly Midoriko and the demon remain imprisoned in the jewel and have battled ever since.

 

The final arc (which actually doesn't end in this volume) is a one off story about a lake demon. It's nice to have the group together though.
