Then some Russian thugs attack her household, kidnapping her and her parents. She manages to escape, but the head mobster will kill her parents unless she gives him what he wants. Who else but a genius could steal a dangerous virus and build a weapon? From that point forward, it’s a race against time.
Anna and Jake make a great team—fearless spy kids. You may not think that a nerd like Anna could hold her own against these mobsters, but she surprises you in the end. That girl kicks a#@! Well, she was going to need every ounce of strength against the Russians, which were bunch of scary dudes. I also liked that Jake was there for Anna every step of the way, being her protector and having her back.
As Anna gets closer and closer to the climactic end, she has to make a choice. Can she risk others by finishing this assignment? And, if she doesn’t, can she sacrifice her parents to save the world? Sacrifice the few to save the many?
Well-written and captivating, this action-packed tale is exciting from the very start. Nice cover design!
Top international reviews
In the beginning, we meet the main antagonist, Komarov, who is a ruthless adversary, and will stop at nothing to achieve his ends, and our CIA contact, Daniels, who seems at a loss to keep up with the villain. Chapter two cuts to Anna, a teen (16?) who is happiest, tinkering with what she calls, ‘her inventions’. When we hear about how badly Anna has been treated at school, by her nemesis, Amber, I was wondering whether this was going to be another high school soap, but things change drastically when Anna’s home is invaded in the night, her parents are abducted and Anna barely escapes with the aid of her bosom pal, Jake.
Komarov is soon in touch, and has a series of tasks for Anna to complete before he will release her parents, but we, the readers, suspect that as soon as she has finished, he will kill them, and probably Anna as well. Despite knowing this, Anna and Jake go on a series of daring missions to collect mysterious phials of liquid from secure establishments to deliver to Komarov. Anna realises he has someone on the inside in each of these cases, but there is no way of telling at this stage. Can she complete these on the tight timescale she has been given, and save her parents? Even if she does, Komarov has one last task, which will challenge her creativity to the limit.
The whole affair is meticulously timed, and the main action takes place over the three days leading up to the new year celebrations in New York.
While the writing is a little raw in places, and I would have liked to see more of Anna’s alleged genius in action, the proofing is faultless, and this work deserves the full five stars for the way it continually grips the reader, and urges one to carry on. I do my reviews during sleepless nights—usually the subject matter sends me off nicely. Not so here. I was kept awake until dawn on three separate occasions, and finished the book in record time. I look forward to reading the next one.
Essentially for the YA market, this could, with some editorial guidance, become a full adult thriller. Nicole has the imagination and the talent to take it to the next level. Well done.
