Area 51/Groom Lake, Nevada

Michael Taylor is a soldier who has managed to become a legend in a new breed of soldiers. They are soldiers that have been injected with alien DNA to make them stronger, faster and better than the average soldier. One thing no one expected is the special abilities that some of them have gotten along with their new found strength and speed. Michael is one that has managed to get more and become more than the other soldiers. He has seen the dark side and come back to the light. Michael left everything behind including the one thing that meant the most to him, Cassandra Powell. She is also the one woman destined to be his mate but rather than hurt her or allow what he has become to affect her he left.

Cassandra Powell was devastated when Michael left her before. Now he is back and she isn’t sure if she can trust him. He is everything she never wanted but everything that she needs. Now Cassandra and Michael are being divided by their loyalties to duty and others only time will tell if they will be able to find a way to be together or if they will be completely torn apart again. Cassandra is the one person though that can help Michael and his comrades. Cassandra and Michael are going to have to find a way to work together to overcome the madman that if they don’t stop him will destroy the world and humanity.

This story takes the myths and legends surrounding Area 51 and runs with it in such a way that it is a very hard book to put down once you start reading it. This one story will hook you into a new series that will have you eagerly awaiting the new installment. This is a very well written story that builds a new world and is very believable and will have you guess just who side who is on. This is action packed and a very fast paced story that will have you turning the pages just to see what happens next. This one is worth picking up and reading.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
