One of these woman grew tired of being a nameless peon and gave herself the name Glory, and decided enough was enough. She miraculously escaped the compound and found herself alone in the middle of a harsh Minnesota winter. Glory stumbles into a coffee shop, almost completely lost to hypothermia and bumps into Roy, a CIA agent assigned to track the rebellious superhumans.
"Winning Glory" is a taut and action packed sci fi/military thriller that is also filled with romance and is so well written that fans of all three genres will find enough to keep them reading all the way to the end. The story take off right at the beginning like a thoroughbred horse bent on winning the Triple Crown and never lets up. Gimpel's writing is crisp, the plot line is not overly muddled with plot holes or unnecessary sub plots. Her characters are perfectly described and details which allows the reader to feel like her characters are real and the events actually happened.
How did these genetically modified humans come about? Humans were genetically modified or enhanced after the events of 9/11 happened. The US felted that doing this would make superhumans and they would be used to help defend the liberty of life for all citizens. These test subjects, as they were called, finally turned against the doctors who created them. These superhuman start to destroy all the labs and breeding farms and freeing the ones that where living in said places. After this the superhuman build a place for them to live from probing eyes. But, there was a problem...the women went from having freedom to become captives. The men were controlling everything the women by not naming them. This way the women would not learn the full power of their abilities. And finally, the men decided that the regular human race was weak and needed to be killed.
The "NAMELESS ONES" or "freakes" where the men whose genetically modified abilities were developed compared to the women. These abilities included mind reading, advanced senses, super strength, brains that can download data and act like computers.
Then we have the CIA hunting down these "freaks" and eradicating them. Read this book to find out what happens between a CIA agent and one of the genetically modified woman.
Roy is hard, married to his job. and knows he's got a bad track record with women. And then he meets Glory. The two play off each other perfectly, the romance is sweet and hot at the same time, and the technological concepts Gimpel introduces really bring this book to the next level. And did I mention it's hot?
I'm looking forward to the rest of the books in this series. I can tell there's a lot planned for these genetically engineered humans, and their CIA counterparts.
