This one starts with Keo finally making it to Santa Marie Island. He's using the boat Lara promised him for his help on Song Island and with the yacht . He also has a promise from Lara to come if he needs help and an offer of a place for he and Gillilan on that yacht. Trident..
As he gets off shore Keo is promptly fired on by a teenage kid. Once he and the kid, Gene, come to an understandig Keo comes ashore.
What he finds is a deserted island. The only human on it is Gene who's been on the island for months after the party he was with was abducted by men in black. Those same men have been around at least once a week trying to capture Gene. Gene knows the island like the back of his hand and easily escapes those hunting him.
The island does have some resources but it would get pretty lonely as all the people except for Gene and Keo are gone.
Water is the big problem and Gene has set out liter soda bottles on roofs to catch rain water. Soon all the non perishible food will be gone. After those supplies are gone you can always fish from the docks. Keo figures you could survive on the island as long as you like fish.
There are ghouls on the island as well. Gene watchs them every night. He's become quite adept at staying unseen by them. In fact Keo thinks the kid has done a damned fine job of surviving on his own.
No Gillian and Keo begins to wonder if those same men in black abducted her and the others. Hell. He doesn't even know if they made it to the island.
The men in black return and Keo kills two and wounds the third. The wounded man is Miller and he tells Keo about T18 the town that he comes from. Its one of those towns where people have traded in their freedom for security and have all become blood donors to the ghouls. Woman are kept pregnant producing babies to provide humans for more blood. Not much of a trade off in Keo's eyes.
Keo is captured by Miller's brother, Steve, who runs T18. On the way in to the Town Keo spots Gillian. She's by the river where woman are washing cloths. No washing machine. A river, rocks and elbow grease. These folks seem completely happy to be living like its the 1800's. Again, not Keo's cup of tea.
Steve has a proposition for Keo. He wants him to go out an find Tobias, he's the leader of those trying to disrupt the Town. If Keo refuses then Gillian will pay the price.
So begins one damned fine kick ass read.
This one has Keo, Jordan, Gillian, Dr. Jay, Steve, his brother Jack, T18, loads of security in black, fields full of crops, housing developments, a Gillian with a mind numbing surprise for Keo, a captured Jordan, a rescue by a collaborator, a horrendous thunderstorm, an escape, a blue eyed ghoul who helps that escape, a battle royal on Santa Marie Island, the return of that blue eyed ghoul who was looking for Keo, a Keo and Jordan who can't believe what this blue eyed ghoul is telling them and Keo and Jordan on the road to finding Lara and the Trident and getting that info to Lara.
Five Stars and then some. I'm glad to see the blue eyed ghoul and anyone with a brain knows just who this ghoul is. The planner and thinker. The guy who has figured it out and now need to pass that info along.
I won't lie I was pissed as hell at the ending of the last book. That character was without doubt my favorite character. The planner, the thinker the special forces operator. Yep. He and the other operator made the story. I see where its going though and will be waiting for the next book and so should you.
Keo finally makes it to Santa Marie Island...but his reunion with Gillian is not what he expected.
She is in the local camp T-18. Keo gets captured by the local bad guys and is given the mission to take out Tobias (the leader of the local resistance fighters) that's been causing trouble. In return, he is told he'll get to see Gillian. Of course, Keo gets caught in the middle. One of Tobias' crew is Jordan, a girl that had been with Keo, Gillian, and Mark before they split up and Keo did battle with Pollard. Jordan escaped from T-18, but Gillian did not. Keo pulls a double cross on Steve (T-18) and makes him think Tobias is dead. Only to find out that Gillian is pregnant with another man's baby...and she's happy at T-18. Jordan gets captured and tortured by Steve, so Keo has to fight his way back out of T-18. In the melee (and later when Keo and Jordan escape to Santa Maria) a mysterious blue eyed ghoul helps them escape...Will.
