If you haven't read Jody Klaire's Above & Beyond series, I highly recommend it! OMG! It's epic! A mammoth of an arc spanning 7 books in total. Very original, unique, fantastic thrills, action-packed, funny, extremely heartbreaking and heartwarming jammed into one, romantic, truly memorable journey & adventures.
First off, it's NOT what you think. The premise reads like an adventure/thriller but it's SO MUCH more than that because not only is the MC (Aeron) a very unconventional character, how she feels, thinks, behaves, is very unique because of her circumstances.
Jody's skillful wordplay and story structure hook you in because you literally FEEL Aeron, her surroundings, the situations/scenarios, as well as the characters she comes into contact with, one of them in particular - which sets off a whole new plethora of emotions so hypnotic you simply MUST find out what's next! It's literally off-the-charts THRILLING! A bloody fantastic roller coaster ride! And you can't just read Book 1 ("The Empath")! You MUST, for your sanity, read the rest of them as Jody turns up the drama/humour/thrills/romance (the most unique, addictive, slow-burn you'll ever read, tbh!)/action a notch as you go through Book 2 onwards, with amazing secondary characters. Oh, I especially love the grandmother!! You'll know when you read the books!
Although the series is created around Aeron, it's the 2 other primary characters, Renee & Frei, who give the story arc depth, complexity & make Aeron whole. I call them the Terrific Trio! Their affinity & special connection with each other are not unlike Harry Potter, Ron & Hermione in the Harry Potter series. They go through all the adventures, thrills, drama & angst together.
All 5 (out of 7 that are released) books will make you laugh, cry, mad, angry, scream, cheer with the characters. The devastatingly slow-burn romance between Aeron & Renee...omg. Their language, their words, their actions will leave you yearning for more! Literally kills me with all the feels! (don't know how many "awwww!"'s I'd uttered whilst devouring the series!). As for Frei, you'll find out and discover her past and I can guarantee you it'll break your heart. But it'll give you a deeper level of understanding about why Frei's what/who she is. Extraordinarily heartfelt.
As the story progresses throughout the books, the action gets more intense. Klaire's masterful use of words to describe the heart-pounding action sequences will literally put you on the edge of your seat! It did for me every time there was one! It's like watching it in motion on-screen! Gobsmackingly spectacular! I was holding me breath during the entire car chase scene,& then the....scene...& then the... Errr...I'd better not reveal anymore because...spoilers! You simply have to read the books to find out!
I also want to add that the subject matter of the story arc that spans several books (which you'll find out) is what is happening to the world we live in today, although, unfortunately it's not being talked about and pretty much "hidden" because of the powers that be (money, power, influence) that have their hands in it. So many actually believe it's in the past & not happening anymore or just happening to certain groups of people. For Jody to use it to build her A&B world (perhaps shine a light on it, albeit it's fiction, but really makes one ponder at what's really behind the curtain of our world) is something that I'm grateful for & appreciative of. I don't think it's been told like that in fiction.
This series really, must be read chronologically as follows:
1. The Empath
2. Blind Trust
3. Untrained Eye
5. Noble Heart
6. Black Ridge Falls (not released yet)
7. Full Circle (not released yet)
**I'm hoping Book 6 will feature Renee's backstory and more about her.Simply her character - as an individual, as Aeron's romantic interest, as Frei's close/best friend. She's basically a badarse! And then, finally, everything comes full circle (as Book 7 alludes to, maybe?), we see the Terrific Trio ride into the sunset together!!! Well, that's my wish, anyway!**
All in all, the Above & Beyond series is a resounding MUST-READ!! You won't regret it!
Thank YOU so much, Jody, for creating this absolutely memorable series!! I put A&B alongside HP as one of my favourite series of all time! Well done, mate!
Now, Bedazzled Ink Publishing, I IMPLORE you to release the last 2 books SOON! PLEASE!!

Frei and Jessie have disappeared and it’s up to Aeron and Renee to find them with the help of Aunt Bess. Head of the Internal Affairs Abby Fleming turns up asking where they are. Abby was Renee’s ex fiancé. So, begins a race to find the missing pair and save them before Abby can realise what is going on at the CIG base. Totally loved the character of Aunt Bess. Lots of fast paced action with flashbacks to Frei’s past and present. Jody Klaire is a great storyteller and a very talented writer. Looking forward to the next book Noble Heart.
