Peril Book Review

Picture Credit

About the Book

Dr. Thomas Reeves is at the pinnacle of his career. The Department of Defense has awarded him a lucrative contract for his new research into superior autobiographical memory, which promises the ability to create combat troops able to quickly learn complex battle plans and enact them perfectly under the most demanding battlefield scenarios.

An elite unit has received neural grafts from fetal cadavers of genetically altered brain cells with enhanced NMDA receptors. The results are remarkable . . . until the recipients begin suffering hallucinations, nightmares, paralysis, . . . and death. Dr. Reeves searches for answers, but DOD insiders want him to stop the search.

The situation becomes public when pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams, Dr. Reeves’s daughter, is taken hostage by three research subjects in an attempt to force Dr. Reeves into disclosing why they are sick. If answers aren’t revealed within twenty-four hours, patients in the pediatric ICU will be killed.

This spine-tingling conclusion to the Bloodline Trilogy raises spiritual and ethical dilemmas torn directly out of today’s headlines. When does life begin? How far does commitment to family go? And can the sins of the father ever be forgiven?(Goodreads)

My Review
Peril is the third book in the Bloodline Triology. I have read the second book Poison and I really enjoyed it. This book I didn't like as much because of all the medical details. I like many books that include medical nurses or testing but for some reason this book just didn't jive with me. I did like how the author uses current events (shooting in Aurora) to interlink her character and story line. Very intense book that had me cringing and suspenseful. For those who have read the previous books, you need to read this one. These books can be read together or separately.
