Gregg is also a master of suspense, unravelling the story as you go. But most of all I love how action-packed his books are! They keep me on the edge of my seat, and make it hard to take a break. Bloodborne is one of his best! Action and excitement from the very first page. A real thriller! I highly recommend it!
If you like Dan Brown or medical/techno thrillers, you'll love Bloodborne by Gregg Luke.
Received from his publicist in return for an honest review.
Right from the beginning, the action pulled me in and dragged me along for a fun ride. Super scientist Erin finds herself the target of a hit man. Before long, she's on the run, not sure who she can trust or why they're after her.
After a good deal of luck and a get away in her sports car, she reaches out to the only person she dares trust, the man who saved her from the first hit, but everything is not as it seems. The mystery builds as we're introduced to not one, but two secret societies in a centuries old battle involving current bio weapons distributed by the perfect assassins-mosquitoes.
I really enjoyed this book. That's saying something coming from someone who mostly reads some sort of fantasy. The books is clean in content, style, and grammar.
I struggled a bit with believability in the middle, but it didn't stop me from staying up until midnight to finish the book.
Great job by Gregg Luke!
Later that day, Erin goes back to work, her lab, to finish a few details before she takes the weekend off. The guard is killed and she barely escapes with her life. She goes home and gathers her emergency stash - her research on a thumbdrive and cash. Then she hightails it out of there, but she is followed. After several more attempts on her life, she asks for help.
She calls Sean Flannery. Sean agrees to help her, but he isn't the easiest person to know. He acts strangely and things become clear, she isn't sure if he is helping her or working for the other side. Bioterrorists have need of Erin's research. They tried to get her to join their Order, but she wouldn't play ball. Now, they want her eliminated. They have created a virus that can destroy the world. But Erin's research is needed to finish it.
Bloodborne is a titillating, action-packed thriller. From the first page until the end, the action never stops. The pacing and the plot unfolding kept me rivetted. It is chilling to think that these things could be happening in today's world. The characters are well-developed and the science is explained in layman's terms, so it was very easy to understand and follow. If you're looking for a new writer of medical thrillers - pick up Bloodborne!
