My name is Brandt Cross, and I died. Again…
I'm living in the body of a Six named Douglass Cain, a certifiable scumbag whose ability is on Zendean Industries—AKA Denazen's—most wanted list. There’s some serious bad going down, and Ginger, the leader of the Underground, sent me undercover to obtain information because people are dying.
My cousin, Dez, is dying…
Denazen thought they’d found a cure for the Supremacy decline, but they were wrong. That’s the bad news. The good news? Franklin Wentz.
Wentz, the owner of a genetic research company, is brilliant and just a little bit crazy. He’s unwittingly created a formula that may cure the sick Supremacy kids, and everyone wants it—including Devin, the super hot Resident.
Get the formula. Save the day. Don’t fall for the hot spy. Piece of cake.
I received a free pdf copy of this novella from the lovely Anjana at Entangled in exchange for my honest review, and I managed to get it converted so I could read it on my kindle.
I like the cover, and I understand that the shading fits in with the nature of the book and the fact that Brandt is literally "in the shadows" but I am a little disappointed that the shading affects the title on the cover. I like the fonts used on the cover and with the exception of the title all are clear and very easily read. If I had anything negative to say I would say the word Ever After being in green does spoil the cover just a little for me. I presume the figures on the cover are Brandt and Devin in their roles of spies looking for the Dromere12 formula. I also have to add I love the addition of the byline, "My name is Brandt Cross and I died. . . . again" I love it! and part of it is something that is repeated by Brandt to himself during the novella. Would I pick it up from a book store shelf if it was on one, or choose to buy it for my kinde? Yes I would definitely want to learn more about the book after seeing the cover.
The blurb, describes the book well in a light and appealing way. Would it make me want to read the book? Of course it would plus this book is part of a fantastic series.
Now to the book, I loved that we were going to learn more about what had happened and what was happening with Brandt. I really liked Brandt as a character before reading this novella but I love him as a character now! His talent is quite a complicated one in that when he soul jumps, though he retains himself and his ways and mannerisms etc he also takes on the ways, mannerisms, and emotional baggage of the person he has jumped into.
So Brandt is trying to ind the formula for the cure that can help his cousin Dez who he loves more like a sister. All he is going through is made more bearable by the fact he might be able to help Dez. So Ginger has tasked him with getting close to a man, Dr Wentz, who may have the formula for part of what is needed to cure Dez and the other ill sixes. To get close to Dr Wentz he had to soul jump into Douglas Cain. So Brandt now has his own mind, sheltie's mind and Cain's mind and abilities to learn to utilise and control. Will he get close enough to Dr Wentz to find what he needs. The group Cain belongs to also has other people trying to get the information in various ways. Brandt also has to deal with getting emotionally attached to another one of the undercover spies, a girl named Devin. Devin's six skill is hacking into computers with her mind.
Who will find the information and will it do any good? Will it be in time?
This is an dramatic action packed novella, it's difficult to say more without revealing more than I'd like so . . .my advice buy the novella! It's a must if you are reading the series, and if you aren't reading the series yet, start reading it!
So did I enjoy the novella? Yes, there's lots of action and drama in it too. There's the main plot and then all these sub plots coming off it which is brilliant. Would I recommend? Yes its a must if you are reading this series. Will I be reading more of the series? Definitely as soon as it's available, yes please! Would I read other books by Jus Accardo? Yes I would.
