Firstly I would like to thank Tracy Fenton for inviting me to join in this Blog Tour and the publisher for the copy of this book provided to me for review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Aydin Torkal – aka Sleeper 13 – is on the run.
Hunted not only by the world’s intelligence agencies, but also by the elite brotherhood of insurgents he betrayed, he has lived the past year like a ghost.
MI6 agent Rachel Cox knows Aydin better than anyone. The only person who believes he is an ally in the ongoing war on terror, not the enemy.
So when a coded message arrives from him, warning her not to trust her own colleagues, Rachel must choose between her career and the truth.
But as Aydin hunts down those who destroyed his childhood, the trail he follows will lead him closer to home than he ever expected.
He won’t stop until he has his revenge.
He is FUGITIVE 13.
I had the pleasure of reading the authors first book in this series ‘Sleeper 13’ earlier in the year and I absolutely loved it. High action, fast paced, great characters, what was not to love. I finished the first book desperate to find out what happens next so I had a sneaky feeling before I even started this book that I was going to enjoy it.
The first few chapters did not disappoint and just like in any good action film, this book threw me right in the middle of the action with some great action packed chapters to whet my appetite.
I really enjoyed seeing how Aydin and Rachel’s character’s developed throughout this book and despite the fact that they appear to be on separate sides, they still seem to be working towards the same goal. Their differences and how they join together and these characters story in general made for a really enjoyable read.
Are there some parts that are slightly far fetched? Well yes. Aydin seems to succumb to horrific injuries yet still manage to plough on like a shire horse, but let’s face it, most action films also adopt this seemingly invincible style towards their main characters and I still enjoy them.
If you like action then I really think you would like this book. I hope there’s a further book to come in the series as I feel that Aydin and Rachel’s story is not quite finished.
