Just a few Peri Reed books I read

February 22, 2017 Just a Few Books I Read, Reviews 3

Just a few

Sometimes I just can’t pull off a review, but still want to share what I’ve read. When that happens, I’ll share them in this feature 🙂

January LaVoy was a brand new narrator for me with this series and I really REALLY like her. In fact, thinking back I wondered if there was a male narrator too, because the male voices were so good. But from my notes I know, NOPE! She just nailed both the male and female voices so well that I could easily see her being two different narrators reading together. A+ and on my list of must listen to narrators.

Don’t miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.

Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.

Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough…

Sideswiped is a great introduction to world and characters. I’m really excited to keep reading in this world, it’s fascinating what they’re doing with time travel. Obviously it’s short and, as usual with shorts, I’m a bit frustrated with where it ended. I want more!

3.5 stars pretty good

The Bourne Identity meets Minority Report in this first highly anticipated installment in number-one New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison's sexy new romantic suspense trilogy, featuring a brilliant special task agent at the top of her field and set in a futuristic Detroit.

During a routine but dangerous Opti task, Peri Reed finds out her trusted partner has made her a corrupt agent. Her unique ability to jump back 40 seconds in time to correct a mistake leaves her vulnerable when her partner, who is responsible for replacing her memory of the event, gives her a false one. But Peri lives and dies on her intuition, and she begins to piece her twisted reality together as she flees her one-time secure situation at Opti and tries to find the truth with a sullen but talented psychologist named Silas who works for the very agency trying to bring the Opti corruption to light.

With Howard, tech and med specialist, and Taf, gun-toting daughter of the opposing grass-roots agency, Silas and Peri try to rebuild her memory of the night she killed her partner, knowing it will put her mental stability in danger. Peri remembers, and thoughts of revenge keep her alive and moving forward as she tries to put an end to Opti, working with the very faction that wants to see her dead.

I really loved this concept. I mean who hasn’t thought about the ability to go back in time, even just a few seconds, to erase past mistakes? But the cost in this world – of losing your memory – is too high. Kim Harrison did a great job with Peri and the conflict and confusion she feels having her memories so vulnerable. I think seeing things from Silas’s point of view was a good way of keeping the tension – instead of always being lost with Peri, we know a bit more of what’s going on and it makes you that much more anxious about the decisions she’ll make. And I loved being in her head when she comes to after a draft, all confused and unsure of her past!

I’m really looking forward to where this series will go next.
4 stars Pretty Great

    I’m really glad you like this series so far, Berls. I’m a bit nervous because I’ve been reading reviews, from trusted blogging friends (like Melanie), who didn’t like it as much as they’d hoped. I wonder if it’s a case of it being something different from The Hollows or… Anyway, I am looking forward to making my own opinion about Peri and friends. I like the concept for the series and I want to give Harrison a chance with something new.
    Happy Wednesday, my friend!! I hope it’s wonderful. {{{hugs}}}
