Peril by Jordyn Redwood


Dr. Thomas Reeves is at the pinnacle of his career. The Department of Defense has awarded him a lucrative contract for his new research into superior autobiographical memory, which promises the ability to create combat troops able to quickly learn complex battle plans and enact them perfectly under the most demanding battlefield scenarios.

An elite unit has received neural grafts from fetal cadavers of genetically altered brain cells with enhanced NMDA receptors. The results are remarkable . . . until the recipients begin suffering hallucinations, nightmares, paralysis, . . . and death. Dr. Reeves searches for answers, but DOD insiders want him to stop the search.

The situation becomes public when pediatric ICU nurse Morgan Adams, Dr. Reeves’s daughter, is taken hostage by three research subjects in an attempt to force Dr. Reeves into disclosing why they are sick. If answers aren’t revealed within twenty-four hours, patients in the pediatric ICU will be killed.

This spine-tingling conclusion to the Bloodline Trilogy raises spiritual and ethical dilemmas torn directly out of today’s headlines. When does life begin? How far does commitment to family go? And can the sins of the father ever be forgiven?

My thoughts:

Jordyn opens this book with a gripping scene and doesn’t let you go until the end.

She has written a wonderful novel that is not for the faint of heart. But if you like to stay up at night captivated by a good book then this is one you will want to grab.

I have never went through the death of a child but if you have you will relate well with Morgan Adams. She is very hard towards her husband. I found myself wanting to tell her to love him and allow him to love her. Her grief is deep and you will hurt with her as you read.

Peril is very well written, Jordyn definitely has a talent that I can’t wait to see more of. I highly recommend this book.
