US Marshal Aislinn Cain and her team of misfits are sent to Alaska (in the wintertime!) to track down a serial killer who hangs his victims (mostly young women, of course) upside from a tree in the woods and skins them alive. Gruesome stuff. This has been going on for some time before the Marshals are called in.
Our team runs into the usual roadblocks. The locals are not happy that they are there, and hold back important information. The killer always seems to be one step ahead of the Marshals. Working in Alaska during the winter just complicates everything.
We learn more about the backstories of the members of the team as they work together to solve the case. There is a lot of pressure on the US Marshals, and each one has to handle it in their own way. We get more into Aislinn’s head and see what she has to deal with and how she continues moving forward.
This is a worthwhile sophomore effort to this series. Hadena James has a new crime drama with the characters and stories that will keep readers coming back for the next installment.
Which brings me to Elysium Dreams. This too was delightful, but in a different way. We find out that while our main character and her side kicks are all people that are best left alone, we also find out that they are not superhuman and that they too can bleed. I enjoyed the continued character development. I will also say that as a long time sufferer of migraines, the author got the symptoms and experience spot on. Kudos.
In both books, the idea of chasing down and apprehending serial killers is both compelling and riveting. The perspective makes for a great read. I like how the main character no longer is as preachy as she was in the first book (where I think it was needed and necessary to prove her chops to the group she was trying to integrate into). Now that she is firmly established as integral member of the team, she has less of a need to show off how smart she is, and that leads to her continued acceptance within the group. This was smart writing, and the change in interpersonal dynamics as a function of time is very realistic. Kudos once again.
I'm glad I found this series. I'm in the process of making my way through the entire series. I just wish I had more time to read!
