    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Overall

    I couldn't stop listening to this book. I don't understand anyone who didn't find this book engrossing, thrilling, suspenseful, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. Now I have to wait two more years for the sequel. Yes, there were some rough spots, but I think this book was all of five stars and if there were six, I'd give it another. Read it, you won't regret it.

    Savannah von Hopf has no choice. To save her uncle's life, she goes in search of Ken "WildCard" Karmody, a guy she barely knew in college who is now a military operative. She must convince him to help her deliver a cache of ransom money into the hands of terrorists halfway around the world. What she doesn't expect is to end up in WildCard's arms before she can even ask for his help.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Out of Control to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because if it weren't for audiobooks I'd never have time to read. I work full time and teach part time and drive 1.5 hours a day - those are the best hours of the day because I get to listen to books that take me away from the stress of daily life! To be honest, I've never picked up a hard copy. Audio/digital/electronic is the way to go.


    What other book might you compare Out of Control to and why?

    Most of the Troubleshooters series, but that's not fair. I love this series of books and haven't found another nearly as good. Brockmann is a wonderful writer and I love ALL of her work.


    What does Norma Lana bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like the emotion she puts into the story and I like Norma Lana's voice. The later Brockmann books have two narrators and some of the narration sometimes has a cartoonish quality that makes me cringe and I'm not fond of. I like the earlier books with the single narrator best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Moment(s) .... Suz isn't afraid to get into the emotions of her characters - and they all have emotions - men and women. I love them all. Also, in this book and several of her other books she had a sub-storyline that was just as compelling as the main line. My degrees are in history and I appreciate that Suzanne took the time to put in these stories that some people would never otherwise have read or heard about.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book - read them all. I haven't read a bad one yet. In fact - read ALL of Suz's books from all her series. They are my old faithfuls and I've listened to them MULTIPLE times.

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

    What did you love best about Into the Darkest Corner?

    I was very impressed by the author's ability to get inside the mind of the victim and give that voice credibility. This book was extremely authentic in the patterns that emerge in an abusive relationship.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I was riveted from the beginning; a normal girl, a normal life until the moment when everything changed.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book, but do read the reviews and publisher's review. If this type of story is something that would offend of scare you - then simply don't read.
