When a bomb explodes inside a Houston high-rise and the governor of Texas goes missing in the ensuing melee, former army ranger Jack "Kell" Kellison and the Omega Force counterterrorism team are called into action. Their mission: infiltrate the activist group suspected of masterminding the bombing, neutralize the threat, and recover the hostage. Yet within moments of meeting his prime suspect, beautiful environmentalist Mori Chastaine, Kell knows she's innocent of the bombing - but definitely guilty of something. Mori has a secret, one she is desperate to hide from Kell and the rest of the world - a secret that binds her to a primal power hungry to assure its future, even at the cost of thousands of innocent human lives. If Mori dares to reveal her true identity, will Kell join her fight? Or will she become his next target?

Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
When I purchased this, I was expecting a straight forward suspense romance. I was surprised when I found that the Omega Force team Kell belongs to had some 'shifter' members. I suppose given Susannah Sandlin's other wonderful books I should have expected this, but the summary gave no indication so I did have a 'what the heck?' moment before I got sucked in to the excellent story. Alexander Cendese has a wonderfully deep reading voice. His female voices were a little jarring at the beginning, but by the end of the story they felt perfectly smooth. Thoroughly recommended!
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
The publisher's summary is misleading since it does not mention that this is a shape shifter story. I am not into shape shifter/vampire/superhero genres - I can't get past the unrealistic elements - no doubt it is my lack of imagination.
Attempting to put the supernatural elements aside, the story couldn't pull a higher rating. The dialog, character development, premise, etc. are pedestrian. The reader didn't help much, either - or perhaps was a bad fit for this story.
Overall, skip it.
