Fantastic conclusion to the series! My review of "Peril" by Jordyn Redwood

Peril: A Novel

Pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams is struggling to find the will to live after the unimaginable death of her daughter. Her marriage to Dr. Tyler Adams seems destined to failure as they struggle with the new reality of their family's situation. Tyler, in the meantime, is becoming ever more concerned about the special project that he is working on for Dr. Thomas Reeves. Dr. Reeves is conducting a lucrative research project regarding implanting neural grafts into the brains of ex-military volunteers, in the quest to create combat troops with superior memory who can act in battles like a super soldier by enacting complex battle plans in any scenario. However, his research project goes awry when recipients of the graft begin suffering hallucinations and losing loss of their limbs, even facing death. In a desperate move to find out the truth of what they are experiencing, 3 research recipients take the Pediatric clinic and Morgan hostage, placing the lives of countless children and adults in peril.

Jorydn Redwood has written a taut and absorbing read in "Peril", leaving me glued to the edge of my seat as I raced to see how everything would resolve. Her pacing is spot on, and scenes flowed effortlessly from one to the next as the readers are led ever closer to the gripping conclusion. I greatly enjoyed getting to know the new and old characters in this book, and I thought they were created with realism as they leaped off of the page. Ethical questions are expertly explored in the all-too-frightening scenario presented in the pages of this book, and by the end of the novel I found myself hoping that, in real life, similar research projects are not underway! Jordyn Redwood has proven that she is an author to keep an eye on, both with "Peril" and with the prior books in the series. I greatly enjoy her writing style, and the way that she weaves suspense and unique plots together to create an absorbing read. Readers who enjoyed the first two books in the Bloodline Trilogy Series are going to be pleased with this final installment with the series - I know I was! I highly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
